The SurCloud All-In-One Appliance is an “Enterprise Ready” and nevertheless easy-to-use solution for creating cloud infrastructure with extreme performance built with SurCloud’s trailblazing technology and powered by SUSE OpenStack Cloud. All hardware and software configurations are highly-optimized including a lot of uncompromising system-level tweaks and revolutionary user experience, eliminating entry barriers and setting new records for performance, density, cost and ease of use.
SurCloud is a Silicon Valley based technology leader in the cloud industry. Its TruPrivacy® is the #1 cloud data security technology in the market, and SurFS™ is an innovative open source cloud storage system with extreme performance at a price that is significantly less expensive than traditional distributed storage systems. TruPrivacy is a patented technology using unique mathematical encryption algorithms that guarantees Zero Data Breach for data in rest and during transmission, which was publicly proven at the world’s largest hacker event DefCon in August 2015. TruPrivacy protects data securely on the cloud and safeguards it from being exposed even if a hacker gets control over the administrative account of the data server.
SurFS completely breaks the shackles of the traditional systems. It is the first distributed storage system based on SAS network, revolutionizing storage network technology by increasing the bandwidth by more than ten times, and reducing latency by more than 90%. SurFS separates storage control nodes from storage medias (such as HDD or SSD), and converges storage control nodes and compute nodes (such as VMs or containers) because this hyper-converged infrastructure offers the shortest I/O path of all recent distributed storage systems. SurFS also has a unique feature of globally shared storage pool, enable every storage control node to access every disk directly. Unmatched security and performance along with competitive cost, SurCloud received “Cloud Storage Excellence Awards” from Cloud Computing magazine, plus other awards from the cloud industry.
The advantages of a public cloud services are:
The advantages of a private cloud services are:
Is it possible to take advantage of both approaches, to reduce costs, keep your data safe and controllable and achieve high performance access at the same time? SurCloud introduces the “lease private cloud” service by paying the SurCloud All-In-One Appliance fee on monthly basis, which combines the advantages of the private cloud and public cloud:
In general, the overall costs of hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) is about 70% of traditional cloud platforms, and the overall costs of SurCloud All-In-One Appliance is about 70% of other HCI products, or about 50% of the cost of a traditional cloud platform.
A traditional cloud platform implementation from planning, project proposal, proof of concept, procurement, deployment, preliminary acceptance, final acceptance to launching often requires months or even more than a year. SurCloud All-In-One Appliance has pre-installed all hardware and software in a cabinet, delivered as a single unit, with no installation needed ("plug & play"), slashing the traditional deployment cycle to "zero." Launching new business logic online is reduced from months to hours.
SurCloud All-In-One Appliance can extend computing power and storage capacity to meet the requirements of different business needs. IT staff does not need to buy large systems that meet estimated usage scenarios for years ahead, which usually results in an unnecessary investment. Rather, SurCloud All-In-One Appliance offers 100% on-demand horizontal extension, which means linear plug & play scalability without shutting down production systems.
SurCloud All-In-One Appliance effectively improves product performance through technology optimization. The SurCloud All-In-One Appliance can provide the computing power of an entire enterprise data center with hundreds of servers, providing full support for an enterprise to shift to cloud infrastructure.
SurCloud All-In-One Appliance transforms complexity to simplicity by consolidating servers, storage, and network equipment from dozens of cabinets – the entire enterprise server room – to a half-size, all-in-one cabinet, which not only saves space and energy but also simplifies deployment and operations as much as possible. A 24U cabinet can host up to:
TruPrivacy is one of SurCloud's patented technologies which guarantees "Zero Data Breach". This technology redefines data protection in cloud storage and has made a quantum leap over conventional methods. TruPrivacy provides complete cloud storage services including uploading, downloading, previewing, searching, sharing, deduplication and password recovery without the need of using plain text decryption keys or login credential on the server side. No one will be able to read the content even if the network security entirely fails, the server is being hacked, the system administrator is nobbled and source codes of security system is disclosed. With TruPrivacy data is a 100% safe, there's zero risk of being exposed without the permission from the owner of the data.
SurFS is an innovative open source distributed storage system designed for OpenStack with extreme performance at significantly low costs. SurFS is capable to provide block device and NAS (SAN NAS) storage services. Compared with traditional distributed storage systems such as Ceph and GlusterFS, SurFS innovations include:
