Enterprises operating multiple offices, are facing pressing budget situation for branches and remote locations that dictates the necessity to cut costs; availability issues and not enough personnel to handle routine operations issues in real time. Virtuozzo and Techonomics™ experts at DIAWAY diligently worked together to create an appliance specifically designed for such use cases.

About Virtuozzo

An industry pioneer, Virtuozzo developed the first commercially available container technology in 2001, which today is used by over 700 service providers, ISVs and enterprises to enable over 5 million virtual environments running mission-critical cloud workloads. Today, Virtuozzo continues to innovate in areas ranging from industry-leading virtualized object storage to cloud-optimized Linux distributions to groundbreaking container migration technologies.

The Challenge

Major requirements of today include complete and easy to scale in and out solution, computationally powerful enough to run any workloads the remote site needs. Ability to start small and grow later on is a must too as the remote sites usually do not imply the same fully-fledged infrastructure layer as it is for companies’ core sites.

The enterprises operating multiple offices are facing the similar challenges and the most critical of them are:

  1. High infrastructure cost for remote locations;
  2. Complexity of infrastructure management;
  3. Need for a more skilled personnel capable of providing optimal end-to-end hardware and infra layer design that leads to extended lead time for the implementation;
  4. Evolving of edge sites that require simplified yet powerful infrastructure to process assigned tasks close to data collection point;
  5. Disaster recovery routines;

The resulting appliance is a direct extension of the previous completed joint work and partnership on Hyper-converged Infrastructure Platform for Private and Public cloud.

The Solution

Secure by design, Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure combines resilient compute and networking, software-defined storage, management UI, advanced analytics and monitoring in a single solution.
The solution comes as a turnkey appliance designed and delivered by DIAWAY that provides affordable acquisition cost, fast storage and performance compute and can further be enhanced by extra services of professional services and onsite warranty. The appliance offers 32 virtual CPUs, up to 10TB NVMe usable space and up to 84TB usable HDD space.
