Cloud Solutions

Delivered on Canonical Openstack. The most popular platform for openstack deployment.



Private  cloud architecture is the aggregation of resources in a data center into a single pool of resources. Through virtualization of the hardware components, organizations increase the efficiency and utilization of their private cloud infrastructure. Private cloud solutions come from leading software companies such as VMware, Microsoft, and others, while enterprise-grade open source solutions are available from Red Hat, OpenStack, and others. Private cloud solutions allow companies to architect a data center using  software-defined networking (SDN) and virtual machines (VMs). A private cloud can span the global network to include multiple server locations or leased space in international colocation facilities. Private cloud solutions provide the software tools for complex network orchestration on bare-metal servers where the security of data can be managed on the premises of a business directly. There are different types of private clouds that deliver different services. For example, when a company uses a private cloud for infrastructure as a service (IaaS), the cloud might host storage, networking, or compute services. Private clouds can also support platform as a service (PaaS) applications, which work just like regular software applications that are hosted on a local computer.

Get More out of your hardware
Dynamic Resource allocation ensures no underused server, storage or any IT asset.

Cost Savings
Better utilization leads to fewer purchase and upgrade of IT resources, providing a huge cost savings.

Increased Security and Privacy
Since private clouds consist of dedicated physical infrastructure, the organization has better control over server, network, and application security.

Regulatory Compliance
Total control of your data and nearness to the compute resources makes it very easy to obtain GDPR or HIPAA certifications amongst many.

More Flexibility
The private cloud is flexible as you transform the infrastructure based on ever-changing business and IT needs of the organization.

Scalability
Ensure continuous growth of your system as adding more servers or storage or better network is a matter of minutes.

Ensuring business continuity
You don't have to worry about maintaining your cloud or protecting data or presence of a particular brand, as OpenStack solutions are totally built on opensource widely available technologies.

Avoid vendor lock in
OpenStack is completely infrastructure-agnostic — thus it can be deployed in any type of server or storage or networking equipments. Total freedom from dependence on a particular vendor.

More Automation
Automated tools and processes to execute workflows that would otherwise need to be performed manually by engineers, like configuring servers or setting up a network or storages.

Components of our cloud solutions

Infrastructure Automation

  • A data centre turns into a bare metal cloud
  • Remote OS Loading
  • All machines in the data centre are automatically discovered and analysed for their base resources
  • Organisations can automatically provision physical machines for the purpose of running their cloud services
  • Hardware inventory and IP Address Management (IPAM) solution become an integrated part of the cloud platform
  • OpenStack cluster can be scaled out in minutes when the demand for workloads increases



...

Hyperconverged Infrastructure

Designing the cloud for the best price-performance starts with making an architecture choice. Although the Hyper-Converged architecture is the most often chosen by organisations, Canonical supports other architectures as well to meet customers’ needs.
  • Hyper-Converged architecture puts guest VMs, storage and OpenStack control services on every node in the cloud, using modern kernel quality of service (QoS) capabilities to defend the performance of critical services while reducing the number of overhead nodes required to service the cloud. Such an approach allows standardisation of hardware configuration and enables maximum resource utilisation, leading to the best price-performance.
  • Converged architecture puts guest VMs and storage on every node in the cloud, but isolates OpenStack control services. Since three units of each OpenStack control service are needed for HA, the converged architecture requires three additional nodes. In order to isolate control services even more, each of them is running inside of a dedicated container which increases the overall security level.
  • Fully Disaggregated architecture allows for even more freedom in terms of services placement. Users can run dedicated compute and storage nodes or even configure various classes nodes. Designing custom architecture is often a requirement of local compliance regulations. It is also very common in telco NFV environments.

    Virtual Machine Infrastructure

    Deliver maximum value from your servers ZeteqVirtual Server Infrastructure solutions built on the NOVA platform helps your obtain the maximum value from your servers by allowing you to:
    • Replicating Virtual Machines in minutes
    • Automated backup and migrating
    • Easy scale up and down of Virtual CPU, Storage and Network Interfaces
    • Support for all popular virtualization platforms including - VMware vSphere, Hyper-V, KVM,LXC,QEMU, Virtuozzo, zVM



    ...

    Storage Virtualization

    Storage is one of the most tricky components when architecting a cloud. Storage costs per TB vary by several orders of magnitude depending on the storage types and technologies used. Thus, making careful selections when designing storage architecture is essential from a price-performance point of view.

    Canonical’s approach towards storage architecture optimisation leverages multiple storage tiers. While big, cheap, low performance disks are used as ultimate storage devices, several smaller, more expensive, high performance devices serve as a cache in front. This approach ensures the required performance of the entire cloud, while not affecting hardware costs significantly.

    With Canonical’s Charmed OpenStack you get:

    • Up to 72TB raw storage per node
    • Data encryption in transit and at rest
    • Data protection and data durability
    • A mix of block and object storage based on personal requirements
    • Multi-tier cloud-native storage based on Ceph or other technologies



    ...

    Software defined Network

    Network is an essential component in every data centre. A poorly designed network can significantly affect the overall performance of the cloud and become a bottleneck in the traffic flow. On the other hand, network improvements should always be driven by economics so as not to affect the overall budget.

    Canonical’s partnership with hyperscale public clouds ensures that we have deep insight into the dynamics of cloud network performance and security best practices for large-scale multi-tenanted operations. Moreover, our experience with telcos for NFV and edge clouds ensures that our solution works well in complex environments where latency and security are critical.

    With Canonical’s Charmed OpenStack you get:

    • Up to 100 Gbps tenant-level performance
    • Underlay network architecture and security design
    • Hardware offloading and other acceleration technologies
    • SR-IOV, DPDK and other performance extensions
    • Access to a wide range of SDN platforms
