ZeroStack Software Converts On-Premises Hardware Into A Fully Optimized Cloud
ZeroStack On-Premises Software Overview
ZeroStack software includes software-defined storage, built-in KVM hypervisor, software-defined networking (SDN) and a self-healing management control plane. The management control plane is highly available, controller-less, with no single point of failure. It uses distributed computing principles to construct a self-healing system that works with the cloud management system to provide fully integrated monitoring and operations. Customers can start with a 3 node cluster and scale to a large number based on demand.
