Offer of high-functioning appliance style private cloud in all-in-one package – small to middle sized private cloud now can be easily implemented –
Creationline, Inc. (Headquater: Chiyoda, Tokyo; CEO: Tadahiro Yasuda; Creationline for short), providing Cloud Integration Services, will be offering high-functioning appliance style private cloud, CLoudsBox from 9/2/2013 (Mon). CLoudsBox utilizes “Citrix® CloudPlatform powered by Apache CloudStack,” which is a commercial version of CloudStack™.
Generally system integrators design and construct private cloud and it is time consuming and costly. However, hardware, software, and architecture, which are necessary for constructing private cloud infrastructure, are packaged in CLoudsBox so that it can be implemented in an organization easily and quickly. In addition, it can be operated with secu:rity because Japanese-speaking technicians from Creationline will handle failure of CloudStack during operation. We recommend this product to organizations that are considering implementing small environment private cloud, want to transfer some servers to private environment while using public cloud, or cannot use public cloud environment due to their policy of data security and governance.
Composition of CLoudsBox is simple; one management server, two computing nodes, one NFS storage node, and a switch for managing network. It assumes operation with 20VMs (1vCPU/2GB *CPU overcommit is assumed). Dell PowerEdge™ R620 is adopted, realizing superior productivity under strict constraint of space with high-density rack design(*). For more detail, please see /cloudstack/cloudsbox/. We plan to link “Chef,” cloud configuration management system, and “CL@FT,” an application developed by us which helps CloudStack operation, to CLoudsBox. We also plan to provide a configuration that adopts “Amage,” scale-out NAS released on 7/30/2013.
*Creationline participates in Open Standard Cloud Association (OSCA™) and we provide appliance with configuration with security whose operation has been verified through joint verification of OSCA program. The joint verification constructed cloud system by CloudStack and verified it. Data obtained is open to public. Please click here for more detail.
