The leading cloud management platform provider – OnApp, recently announced its new range of solutions – OnApp Enterprise, to bring better price, performance and usability in the private and hybrid cloud market.
Its first solution will bring together the power of OnApp’s cloud management software stack with Data Center Blocks Hardware of Intel; and will turn out as a turnkey HCI (Hyper Converged Infrastructure) solution with one platform and one appliance.
The company has designed the solution keeping in mind the needs of IT departments and SMBs. The solution features consist of:
- comprehensive tool sets for private cloud deployment and orchestration,
- tools for user access control and governance,
- monitoring and chargeback,
- ability to connect with multiple public cloud providers.
The solution offers complete scalability with up to 254 servers per cluster, backed with asymmetric storage and computing capabilities. IT offers a single UI for managing private and public cloud across various clusters, clouds and datacenters.
Ditlev Bredahl, CEO of OnApp, said, “Our first solution, which we’re taking to market with Intel, offers more affordable, easier-to-manage and easier-to-scale private and hybrid cloud management for SMBs and enterprises. In the future, we’ll be introducing hardware-accelerated cloud and NFV, AI-enabled hybrid cloud management and more – to make OnApp the standard for enterprise cloud, too.”
The OnApp Enterprise solution will be available at as little as third of the price of competing products, per the company.
Being based on Intel’s Data Center Blocks including Intel SSDs, Intel Xeon, Intel Server Boards and other components, the solution will be offered as a ready-to-run HCI appliance.
AI Diaz, VP and GM at Product collaboration and Systems Division, Intel, reportedly finds huge market opportunity for HCI and other multi-cloud management in the enterprise market.
He said, “As a result of the collaboration between Intel, OnApp and our partners, companies of all sizes now have an easier, more powerful and more cost-effective way to deploy and manage their own flexible, software-defined infrastructure and bring the public cloud experience to the enterprise datacenter.”
The solution has been made available now from Intel Technology Providers – MultiTech, Hammer, Iron Systems, New Era Informatique and others.
The collaborative solution will bring together OnApp’s industry-leading cloud management platform and Intel’s best-of-breed hardware, to offer enterprise cloud automation and datacenter control.
