(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Hexagrid, a leading developer of cloud enablement solutions, and Boston Limited, an established distributor and integrator of Supermicro Computer server and storage solutions (NASDAQ: SMCI), joined forces at Cloud Expo Silicon Valley 2011 to showcase the market-ready Unovie cloud which streamlines service provider delivery of private cloud solutions.
Hexagrid and Boston co-engineered the Unovie private cloud for optimal utilization of Boston Quattro® hardware with remote managed service capability. These pre-configured clouds are business ready within 10 minutes which provides speed-to-market advantages for both solution providers and end-users. Hexagrid’s award-winning Infrastructure as a Service software on power optimized Supermicro™ hardware offers five times more data center space efficiency than traditional computing resources carrying the same workload capacity.
“We are pleased to partner with Boston Limited to bring the Unovie Cloud to market at Cloud Expo Silicon Valley,” says Suresh Mandava, CEO of Hexagrid Computing. “Since Unovie development was announced in September, we have received a flood of interest from data centers seeking to offer hosted private cloud solutions as well as service providers who want to offer private on-premise cloud solutions with remote-support capabilities. For one low price, Unovie offers cloud solution providers the opportunity to deliver private cloud security with public cloud support to achieve well over 60 percent profit margins. Thanks to our partnership with Boston, this highly scalable yet highly simplified cloud solution is now available for worldwide distribution with nearly 10 delivery partners already onboard and booking sales in 6 different countries. With Boston’s established reputation and proven engineering capabilities, we can meet the anticipated market demand for Unovie-based cloud solutions.”
As a pre-packaged Infrastructure as a Service offering, Unovie is a comprehensive cloud-in-a-box solution that boasts no SAN, no downtime, and no complexity. These dedicated clouds are fault tolerant and redundant by design with clustered file storage and remote service capabilities to give both end-users and solution providers all the advantages of cloud without all the hassles. Available in three varieties, Unovie meets the diverse resource management requirements of different SME and distributed enterprise markets.
“We are delighted with this collaborative partnership with Hexagrid and look forward to bringing this innovative solution to market at Cloud Expo Silicon Valley,” says Manoj Nayee, Managing Director of Boston Limited. “Hexagrid’s Unovie Cloud is suitable for the most demanding applications and is sold as a business-ready out-of-box offering to achieve a complete private cloud software stack running on our Quattro® solution. This solution uses local storage and external NFS or iSCSI with high performance networking options supported by 10GbE and low-latency onboard QDR InfiniBand.
