Streamline Operations, Reduce Costs, and Improve Reliability
ZeroStack’s intelligent cloud platform is web managed to simplify operations and reduce operational overhead and costs. By automating tasks such as resource provisioning, it accelerates the application deployment process significantly while ensuring that IT retains control of sensitive data on premises.
Leveraging features of the Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor, the ZeroStack platform delivers hyperconverged cloud, along with software-defined storage, compute, and network resources. Management and security features include microsegmentation, virtual machine (VM) firewalling, and integrated accounting for showback and billing. IT admins and developers can each use the web browser of their choice to drive the cloud experience. The on-premises, self-healing control software on hyperconverged hardware ensures that all users receive the always-on cloud uptime that they expect, removing any potential bottlenecks in the data flow.
Solutions that Fit Your Application Needs
Intel and ZeroStack are committed to simplifying the path to delivering hybrid cloud services by developing the foundational technology that powers high-performance, energy-efficient, highly available and secure cloud environments. The Intel and ZeroStack solution is available in multiple All-Flash (AF) and Hybrid (HY) system configurations, each designed for specific workloads and use cases. For example, Intel and ZeroStack have identified the following use cases as having great potential for the ZeroStack solution—Advanced Analytics, Big Data, and Databases:
Removing Bottlenecks to Streamline Advanced Analytics Processing
For consistently high performance from storage volumes, a solid state drive (SSD)-heavy configuration delivers the fastest speed, highest IOPs, lowest latency, and a longer mean time between failures (MTBF) because there are no moving parts.
The flexibility and automation inherent in the ZeroStack cloud running on an Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor allows customers to create their own app-specific, compute-heavy configurations with a high number of vCPUs, memory, and storage. For example, for an intensive, number-crunching application, ZeroStack’s cloud software can create local data pools for high locality. If the data processing includes random IOs and not batch processing, SSD pools can provide very high IO throughput.
Predictable Performance, Linear, Scaling, and High Availability for Big Data
For data processing and data mining applications, when access speed is not the key requirement, hard disk drives (HDDs) provide the most cost-effective storage. Adding SSDs, as needed, to improve IOPs and reduce seek times can compensate for any reduction in speed. Intel® OptaneTM SSDs, which combine breakthrough storage technology and radical innovation in memory, offer exceptional performance acceleration and responsiveness.
