Powering modern IT
SimpliVity provides the best of both worlds for today’s virtualized data centers: the scale, agility, efficiency and economics of cloud infrastructure with the performance, protection and manageability of enterprise IT. OmniCube consolidates up to a dozen infrastructure functions into a single unified stack. Its data architecture delivered on commodity x86 building blocks helps organizations realize a 3x TCO savings. Deploying a network of two or more OmniCubes creates a global federation that facilitates efficient data movement, resource sharing and scalability.
The OmniStack solutions incorporate 3 unique core innovations:
- Virtual Resource Assimilator: A single software stack that assimilates the functionality of multiple traditional IT infrastructure products into a single shared x86 resource pool
- Data Virtualisation Engine: A novel data architecture where all data is compressed, deduplicated and optimised at inception, in line with no impact to application performance.
- Global Federated Architecture: An intelligent network of collaborative systems that provide massive scale-out as well as a VM-centric single point of management
