OmniCube: Changing the Game
SimpliVity OmniCube is the industry’s first and only globally-federated hyperconverged infrastructure solution. Designed and optimized for modern virtual environments, OmniCube is a compact, scalable 2U rack-mounted building block that delivers server, storage, and storage networking services. It also delivers a complete set of advanced functionality that enables dramatic improvements to the efficiency, management, protection, and performance of virtualized workloads – all at a fraction of the cost and complexity of today’s traditional infrastructure stack.
By assimilating eight to twelve core data center functions, including the hypervisor, compute, storage, storage network switching, backup, replication, cloud gateway, caching, WAN optimization, real-time deduplication, and more, OmniCube delivers the performance, reliability, availability, security, efficiency, backup, and disaster recovery that enterprises expect, in a fully integrated, easyto-deploy system. Furthermore, OmniCube consolidates these capabilities into a single x86 building block that scales out with additional nodes, resulting in up to threefold TCO savings.
Cloud Economics with Enterprise Capabilities
Enterprises today seek the agility, elasticity, and affordability promised by cloud computing. However, IT organizations also want the performance, reliability, and resiliency of on-premises infrastructure. OmniCube delivers both. Independent studies show that running virtual machines on on-premises SimpliVity OmniCube hyperconverged infrastructure is 22% to 49% less expensive than running them in a comparable Amazon Web Services environment, when considering total costs over a three-year period.
OmniStack: Attacking Complexity at the Source
Today’s infrastructure complexity problem is caused by antiquated data architectures not suited for modern virtualized and cloud-integrated applications. SimpliVity OmniCube is powered by the OmniStack Virtual Controller, and the OmniStack Accelerator Card. OmniStack’s enabling technology, the OmniStack Data Virtualization Platform, delivers three breakthrough innovations:
- Accelerated Data Efficiency: On average, SimpliVity customers achieve 40:1 data efficiency while simultaneously increasing application performance. Using OmniStack, OmniCube deduplicates, compresses, and optimizes all data inline, in real time, at inception, once and forever across all stages of the data lifecycle, globally.
- Built-in Data Protection: OmniCube has built-in highly efficient local and remote backup, delivering operational and disaster recovery. This enables full logical backups in just seconds, as well as RTOs of seconds to minutes and RPOs of minutes.
- Global Unified Management: Manage data centers at the VM level globally, rather than at the LUN or share level—all from a single interface. The underlying hardware is uniquely abstracted from the hypervisor, providing VM-centric management and mobility of all data, including backups, moves, and clones.
