Cloud Computing PLATFORM
The grid architecture of the Enterprise Cloud provides complete physical redundancy to eliminate downtime due to hardware failure. In fact, the system can even move applications across physical devices live and with no service interruption. And automated resource balancing provides continuous monitoring and optimization to ensure peak performance.
The Enterprise Cloud architecture is based around the concept of resource pools – a dedicated segment of cloud infrastructure that gives you guaranteed access to computing capacity. The system’s inherent flexibility yields unprecedented scalability and agility. Server-based elasticity allows servers to dip into the pool when memory and processing is required, immediately releasing those resources when they’re no longer needed.
The Enterprise Cloud’s Dynamic Capacity Management feature allows you to automatically deal with unforeseen spikes in usage by enabling “burst mode” access to a pool of additional resources, available on a metered basis. This hybrid model provides the best of both worlds – guaranteed, reliable access to the compute capacity you need every day, with a cost-effective and dynamic way to deal with unexpected spikes.
The Enterprise Cloud is built leveraging technology from VMware, the leader in virtual server technology. VMware’s robust and secure virtualization platform gives you freedom and control, complete reliability and high security. That’s why VMware is the overwhelming choice for cloud computing, in use by all of the Fortune 100.
Customers can create user accounts and provide access to their systems on the Enterprise Cloud. Set, define, and revoke user roles and responsibilities as needed delegating workloads amongst internal resources and creating controls for workflow management.
High Performance STORAGE
The Enterprise Cloud delivers storage on a redundant, high-performance Fibre-attached SAN architecture. Add disks to virtual servers in increments of 1GB to 512GB which pulls from the storage pool purchased for your environment. To keep track of your overall storage utilization, The Enterprise Cloud provides a dashboard of the total disk count for your environment so that you know what has been allocated and when you need to purchase additional storage capacity.
Intuitive, Web-Based CONTROL
At the heart of the Enterprise Cloud is the easy to use management console. With the click of a mouse button you can dynamically provision new servers from a dedicated pool of physical resources, including processing, memory and storage. Select from pre-configured server templates for easy deployment, or customize your own for total control. We provide you with a full reporting interface that gives visual feedback to historical resource allocation and utilization. So it’s easy to effectively manage and optimize your server infrastructure.
