Overview

Infrastructure Manager

The Infrastructure Manager dashboard, is the fastest and recommended way to deploy and manage clusters in AWS, On-Premises and at the Edge. It provides a single pane of glass to manage and monitor resources, take backups, move workloads around and to deploy clusters. It can be deployed instantly on-demand from the AWS marketplace.

1. Single pane of management for all deployments

• Full role-based access control

• UI or API driven for easy integration

• Monitor all resources across entire deployed estate

2. Virtual Machine management

• Ability to move VMs between Clusters

• Use Templates to create new VMs. Ability to have private Template servers

• Resource Groups for granular control of compute and storage

3. Data protection

• Backup VMs on your clusters from a central location

• Create granular snapshot schedules

• Restore to any cluster under SIM control

1. What is hyperconverged infrastructure?

Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) is a combination of servers and storage into a distributed infrastructure platform with intelligent software to create flexible building blocks that replace legacy infrastructure consisting of separate servers, storage networks, and storage arrays. More specifically, it combines commodity datacenter server hardware with locally attached storage devices (spinning disk or flash) and is powered by a distributed software layer to eliminate common pain points associated with legacy infrastructure.

2. Hyperconvered Infrastructure Basics: How it works?

HCI converges the entire datacenter stack, including compute, storage, storage networking, and virtualization. More specifically, it combines commodity datacenter server hardware with locally attached storage devices (spinning disk or flash) and is powered by a distributed software layer to eliminate common pain points associated with legacy infrastructure. Complex and expensive legacy infrastructure is replaced by a distributed platform running on industry-standard commodity servers that enables enterprises to size their workloads precisely and to scale flexibly as needed. Each server, also known as a node, includes x86 processors with SSDs and HDDs. Software running on each node distributes all operating functions across the cluster for superior performance and resilience.

Hardware platform configurations are available to fit any workload by independently scaling the various resources (CPU, RAM, and storage) and can be provisioned with or without GPU for graphics acceleration. All nodes include flash to optimize storage performance, and all-flash nodes are available to deliver maximum I/O throughput with minimum latency for all enterprise applications.

In addition to the distributed storage and compute platform, HCI solutions also include a management pane to enable you to easily administer HCI resources from a single interface. This eliminates the need for separate management solutions for servers, storage, storage networks, and virtualization.

3. The tie between hyperconvergence and cloud

Organizations increasingly utilize public cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud for deploying IT applications to run their business. Public cloud services are flexible and dynamic, and enable organizations to dynamically adapt to changing business needs.

But despite the increase in flexibility, cloud computing has its own challenges. Building and deploying applications in public clouds requires specialized skill sets that diverge from traditional IT teams, increasing the specialization in already highly siloed organizations. In addition, utilizing public cloud resources is more expensive than on-premises infrastructure and creates control and security challenges.

Hyperconverged infrastructure is underpinned by many of the same distributed systems technologies as public clouds, enabling IT organizations to build private clouds that bring benefits of cloud computing into organizations’ datacenters. Hyperconverged infrastructure services can also be extended into public clouds for true hybrid cloud infrastructure that enables applications to be deployed and managed with the same tools and procedures while making it easy to migrate data and services across clouds.
