Launch a fully functional enterprise-ready private cloud in minutes.
AMAX's CloudMax™ is a fully converged and modular Private Cloud solution based on OpenStack which takes the complexity and expertise requirement out of maintaining an enterprise-ready, secure private cloud, with the ability to launch a private cloud from bare metal to fully functional in less than 10 minutes. Powered by Piston Cloud, CloudMax utilizes a Null-Tier Architecture in which every server handles compute, storage, networking and management for the ultimate in high-availability and ease of scaling — just add more modules to grow your cloud.
Key unique features of CloudMaxT's Piston OpenStack:
The most advanced system automation modeled after the pioneers of cloud computing at Amazon, Google and Microsoft, CloudBoot is a system orchestration framework that allows for a streamlined launch of your cloud in minutes, zero-downtime updates and unbelievably easy scaling (just connect new nodes and power on). CloudBoot detects and provisions hardware using IPMI, netboots the nodes to a hardened, embedded linux environment using PXE, and then passes off system control to Moxie HA for configuration and service management.
Virtual Memory Streaming
Don't launch VMs. clone them! With the Virtual Memory Streaming feature, thousands of VMs can be cloned in-memory within seconds without noticeable interruption of services to the users. Because Virtual Memory Streaming also optimizes RAM and storage usage, it allows for twice as many virtual machines per host servers and drastically reduces storage I/O requirements for the ultimate in efficiency.
With high-availability and disaster-proofing an absolute requirement for enterprise-ready private clouds, the Moxie HA feature implements a sophisticated high-availability framework implementing the Paxos algorithm as a distributed lock manager in the control and management plane. By automating 99% of systems management tasks, enabling servers to collectively self-manage using a fault-tolerant, master-elected job runner with distributed watchdog service and fencing, Moxie HA ensures that your private cloud is running 24/7 with no user-apparent interruptions.
The recommended starter PoC configuration consists of 5 nodes and 24-port 10Gb Arista switch. Each node is homogeneous and performance-optimized for the Piston OpenStack with dual E5-2600 / E5-2600 v2 series processors, 128GB RAM, 8TB storage with SSD acceleration. To grow your cloud, simply add nodes for painless scaling.
