Cloud Building

Modern businesses need the flexibility and responsiveness that cloud computing offers, but often lack the expertise and resources necessary to build a cloud with traditional architectures.

The goal of the “cloud” is to provide an agile, reconfigurable environment that can provision storage and computing resources on-demand to meet changing needs. The key to this flexibility lies with the architecture itself. Traditional datacenters are limited by a reliance on static storage installations and a rigid networking infrastructure. In order to overcome these limitations, a new approach to datacenter architecture is needed.

Cloud Composer is the ideal platform on which to base large-scale virtualization, private and hybrid cloud deployments. Cloud Composer creates a software-defined infrastructure that lets you deploy applications, provision VMs, and reconfigure the infrastructure in minutes, without changing the underlying hardware.

  • A hyper-converged infrastructure – Cloud Composer uses its built-in vSAN and hypervisor to abstract storage, compute, and networking resources in your environment from the underlying hardware; no expensive third party hardware or licenses required.
  • A software-defined solution – Cloud Composer’s intelligence lies in the software, meaning you can use any non-proprietary commodity hardware you chose, and change it at any time without affecting your environment. Because the infrastructure is defined by software, you can create and reconfigure virtual computing environments at will.
  • Scale-out elasticity – Cloud Composer’s virtualization or storage-centric building block appliances stitch together to build an intelligent virtual datacenter that can be expanded with the addition of appliances. Because the infrastructure is defined by software, you can create and reconfigure virtual computing environments at will. No migrations or reconfigurations.
  • Reduce Storage Costs – Cloud Composer is an intelligent platform that transforms commodity hardware into powerful scale-out building blocks. This allows you to quickly deploy a virtual storage environment using building blocks pre-configured for high IO with solid state disk or for capacity with hard disk drives.
