SoftIron launches HyperCloud integrated cloud fabric

By

Data centre solutions provider SoftIron's new HyperCloud platform provides pre-integrated building blocks with automated provisioning of storage, compute, networking and infrastructure services to simplify the rollout of a unified private or hybrid cloud.

Designed by SoftIron and manufactured in its own factories – including one that will soon open in Australia – HyperCloud starts small at less than half a rack and a deployment time of less than half a day, yet it can "scale almost infinitely" according to the company.

The basic architecture comprises stateless storage and compute blocks organised by a distributed cloud orchestration control plane.

Additional storage and compute resources can therefore be easily added.

"HyperCloud enables IT generalists to build and operate highly sophisticated hybrid and/or multi-cloud infrastructures that operate with a level of reliability, availability, elasticity and serviceability previously available only to hyperscale cloud builders with specialist skills and access to large engineering teams. HyperCloud's modular nature, combined with the simplicity with which new compute and storage resources can be added, and the out-of-the-box secure multi-tenancy capabilities mean that the cloud fabric can be scaled up or down just in time, eliminating needless over-provisioning and reducing financial outlay," asserted SoftIron.

SoftIron CTO Kenny Van Alstyne said "Building and running clouds today is overly complex as engineers battle to integrate disparate layers of technology into a resilient, performant and scalable solution.

"It was time to take a step back and architect an entire platform, from the ground up, with the single task of making cloud consumable. HyperCloud removes the complexity of integrating the many independent hardware and software layers needed to build a cloud into a unified purpose-built fabric. With HyperCloud, you can deploy virtualised and containerised workloads across federated on-premises zones and public clouds, with support for secure multi tenancy, full programmability, and full lifecycle automation all 'out of the box.'

"We're giving organisations sophisticated control of their cloud architecture, eliminating the need for complex integrations between multiple vendors and technologies while providing the ability to scale limitlessly as workloads demand, incrementally adding resource services as needed."

SoftIron CEO Phil Straw said "Public cloud is popular because it creates a consumption-based experience hiding the complexity of operating a resilient, elastic infrastructure, and the sheer brute force of engineering that is needed to accomplish it - historically, that's only been possible at hyperscale.

"It's a useful utility in your IT tool belt, but most organisations today want a hybrid model. Creating a complexity breakthrough required a totally new approach to deliver the first and only complete technology to be used specifically for building clouds. After a decade of innovation, HyperCloud realises that goal and will forever change expectations of how clouds can and should be built."

HyperCloud is available immediately, and the price includes all features and the right to add as much extra capacity as required without additional licensing fees.

PROMOTE YOUR WEBINAR ON ITWIRE

It's all about Webinars.

Marketing budgets are now focused on Webinars combined with Lead Generation.

If you wish to promote a Webinar we recommend at least a 3 to 4 week campaign prior to your event.

The iTWire campaign will include extensive adverts on our News Site itwire.com and prominent Newsletter promotion https://itwire.com/itwire-update.html and Promotional News & Editorial. Plus a video interview of the key speaker on iTWire TV https://www.youtube.com/c/iTWireTV/videos which will be used in Promotional Posts on the iTWire Home Page.

Now we are coming out of Lockdown iTWire will be focussed to assisting with your webinars and campaigns and assistance via part payments and extended terms, a Webinar Business Booster Pack and other supportive programs. We can also create your adverts and written content plus coordinate your video interview.

We look forward to discussing your campaign goals with you. Please click the button below.
