Cisco Powered eCloud®
Cisco Powered is the industry standard for cloud and managed services. Based on validated architectures and end-to-end security, Cisco Powered services minimise technology lifecycle complexity to reduce cost and risk. The ultimate best-in-class, offering flexible and scalable cloud services designed to help you achieve faster time-to-value.
Under the bonnet
Developed by our cloud architects, eCloud® Public enables you to create a secure virtual machine on a multi-tenant cloud infrastructure. Achieve significant cost-efficiencies as the cloud infrastructure is built upon a shared platform, providing private virtual machines for individual organisations.
- Abstracted hardware layer, enabled by Cisco UCS server profiles, allows for simple, fast migration and online resource expansion
- 10Gb/s connectivity for every blade server
- Highly expandable blades - due to high bandwidth bus interconnect from the mezzanine card system, enabling third party card integration i.e. Fusion IO
- Dedicated fibre channel infrastructure for each UCS pod
- Redundant modular pod-based architecture results in discrete isolated failure domains mitigating risk
- Component redundancy allows any element to fail without any impact to your solution
- N+3 power redundancy across all Cisco UCS blades.
- eCloud® uses our bespoke cloud orchestrator, allowing us to rapidly respond to customers by rolling out any feature required
- Off-the-shelf vendor orchestrators restrict the use of features and are slow to respond to the needs of customers
- Vendor agnostic due to in-house built orchestration
- Automate and manage the build process in its entirety
- Allows for automatic server provisioning, virtual machine and storage resources. This feature also manages the automatic customisation of the guest OS
- The automation process also includes the automatic creation of the relevant database records in our in-house management systems.
Our eCloud® platform is built upon world-class HP 3PAR and SGI Storage. Our highly-resilient SAN storage ensures that your data is safe and protected, whilst Cisco Nexus 10 Gigabit Ethernet switches provide low latency and high-performance.
- Tier 1 storage from SGI and 3PAR
- Network topology segregation
- Full end-to-end fabric design
- High bandwidth connectivity
The virtualisation platform uses VMware ESXi technology. All VMware management hypervisors and VMs are launched on separate physical servers outside the UCS environment.
This, combined with our modular pod-based architecture and segmented management, allows for disaster recovery and auto-deployment in the event of failure.
As a leading VMware Premier partner, we offer bespoke client solutions, to enable enhanced agility and resilience for business operations.
