DELL +UnitedStack cloud hosting: cooperation is not accidental

As everyone knows, the distributed architecture of the cloud can provide a higher degree of flexibility and reliability, based on the open source OpenStack cloud platform technology is one of the best, more conducive to users to maximize the investment. DELL and UnitedStack cooperation, not only brings the whole function of the cloud computing platform, continuous integration system more user continued delivery of new value.
When DELL and UnitedStack have announced cloud cooperation, we are not surprised. Because a big advantage of the open source Openstack private cloud based, is replaced by large business machines large and expensive machinery, thus greatly reduce the cost of infrastructure.
The industry standard x86 server is DELL’s strengths, both reliability and economy etc., are remarkable.
The enterprise storage system as an example, its availability requirements are usually as high as 99.999%, in addition to component redundancy, hardware itself quality is also very important. We have seen many storage vendors chose DELL with commercial server to build its array controllers, virtual gateway and backup machine products. Earlier some footed Kang and recent flash array start-up companies solidfire etc., and domestic some distributed storage vendors too. Of course, DELL’s own SC8000, SC9000, FluidFS based unified storage product line.
Any cloud | Dell +UnitedStack cloud hosting: not fortuitous collaboration in Dell any cloud (any cloud) partners, we see the VMware hybrid cloud platform — the underlying infrastructure can be PowerEdge FX2, Evo: Rail (vsan) storage and use nutanix software technology of XC super fusion scheme; Microsoft’s proprietary cloud scheme and its basic composition parts Hyper-V virtual machines can also choose to run in the nutanix (XC) platform. In addition to the two commercial software partners, and open source OpenStack platform — DELL and Red Hat announced earlier in the global cooperation, but UnitedStack is more focused, and more likely to fall in the country.
Full function + continuous integration, DELL Openstack cloud hosting features
Dell and cloud Unitedstack cooperation, launched the super fusion architecture of private cloud platform, on standard x86 servers and universal network equipment based, through the calculation of elastic, unified storage and SDN network technology to construct the culvert pileus cloud hosting, cloud drive and VPC network, complete the cloud computing infrastructure, for users provide full function of the cloud computing platform. Through the operation monitoring system is powerful, and improve the system for continuous integration of cloud hosting platform has been on-line constantly adding new features to the user continued delivery of new value.

In addition to the server, DELL also has the outstanding network and security products. In the Dell UnitedStack managed cloud, DELL PowerEdge server, Networking switch, Sonicwall firewall and reference architecture, UnitedStack is responsible for own UOS release related to cloud services. From the two companies professional service team to provide users with support.
1, elastic cloud
High performance elastic cloud services, cloud storage, network configuration, the host can be adjusted flexibly, improve the API support and the host with snapshot for customers, business to achieve rapid deployment flexibility.
2, software defined network
Neutron, OVS, VXLAN, NameSpace etc. based on the technology of cloud hosting network equipment of the physical world are designed into a network object operation. Only through the cloud hosting management panel, you can according to the needs of the business can quickly build a complex network environment, more intelligent network management.

3, unified storage
Cloud hosting with Ceph distributed storage unified solution, all computing nodes on the SSD disk composed of a set of Ceph storage pool. Users do not need to buy expensive professional storage devices, you can experience beyond the professional storage reliability and storage performance. Storage mode SSD hard disk, multi copy and full Gigabit storage network can provide experience for the user of the hitherto unknown cloud.

The UnitedStack from an earlier data, the minimum deployment includes 12 peer computing / storage node distribution in 3 frame. This and later in this article to introduce the managed cloud reference architecture some differences, we will carry out simple analysis below, so that we understand.
4, the unique managed cloud services
Dell and cloud service team powerful combination, not only for customers provide private cloud on-line deployment services, but also provide a platform for long-term operation and maintenance and continuous function upgrade services, cloud hosting service realized on hardware server status, cloud platform for maintenance of the intelligent monitoring of the operation and maintenance. For cloud platform operation and maintenance support service team is guaranteed by strict SLA. Development and customer maintenance personnel do not need to infrastructure maintenance and a waste of time, which can be limited to focus on the construction business system real benefits.
Any | DELL +UnitedStack cloud hosting cloud: not accidental cooperation as above, from the installation, upgrade changes to all aspects of the operation and maintenance support, DELL and UnitedStack have considerate users. Here we will no longer repeat words.

5, Openstack managed cloud reference architecture and typical configuration
Cabinet level redundancy: minimal structure contains 12 server and three cabinets, the whole cabinet dropped does not affect the business operation can be extended to the scale of thousands of servers.
Any | DELL +UnitedStack cloud hosting cloud: cooperation is not accidental
According to the above chart, the 12 servers minimal architecture is every cabinet four nodes, but there are a green logo of the network nodes only two hard disk (should RAID 1 install the operating system), composed of no CEPH SSD; two yellow markings on the compute nodes each with three SSD, is a hybrid configuration; and deep blue control node configured six SSD should is because unlike the computing nodes that need to run a virtual machine, more processing resources contribute to the CEPH storage.
That is to say, in cooperation with the UnitedStack Dell openstack cloud hosting is minimal structure, and front mentioned the same number of 12 node reference architecture compared to a higher degree of integration, contains the special nodes of the network (SDN), does not require additional control node, sharing and bear more storage load in order to make full use of resources.
Why choose Openstack private cloud?
The distributed architecture of the cloud provides a higher degree of flexibility and reliability. In addition to choose OpenStack because it is one of the best cloud computing platform, but also because there are several advantages of open source software:
1 long term, can be avoided by a single private cloud vendor lock;
2 more importantly, open source means can be modified and customized to meet the individual needs of enterprises;
3 OpenStack has a large community, supported by many industry manufacturers.
Although there is no traditional network storage product line of DELL in this cooperation, but in other parts of any cloud in the array, still play an important role. According to our understanding, in today’s private cloud hosting / deployment, a considerable part of the user or trust and select the SAN and NAS commercial storage, including some of the OpenStack camp.
