Integration of object storage "Sbcloud" with NetApp StorageGRID Webscale
On June 25, 2019 the Sbcloud company announced expansion of an opportunity for work with the data placed with the operator due to integration of object storage Sbcloud with NetApp StorageGRID Webscale capable to store billions of objects and to manage their placement on the basis of the metadata set by the application in DPCs worldwide. The uniform Sbcloud control panel allows to create storage, to obtain data on the consumed volumes, to manage flexibly access and the physical location of data in real time.
The solution Netapp StorageGRID formed the basis of object storage Sbcloud. StorageGRID differs in scalability and a broad spectrum of the settings necessary for compliance to tasks of customers. The object storage Sbcloud allows to implement the projects connected with unpredictable scaling of volumes and requests, geographical distribution of both data, and their users. Integration cloud service of BusinessCloud with object storage using API S3 (Simple Storage Service) gives to customers the chance to be focused on management and access to to data regardless of infrastructures calculations and storage, to reduce terms of data migration and applications, to reduce costs for administration of virtual resources.
| ||We appreciate that Sbcloud supports NetApp, giving to clients an opportunity to build the hybrid clouds for ensuring digital transformation of business — Tatyana Bocharnikova, the chief representative of Netapp in Russia and the CIS countries said. — The solution StorageGRID Webscale is focused on DPC of the next generation. It allows customers to create easily huge scalable lakes of data for the organization of archives, analytics and storage of multimedia data both in geographically distributed DPCs, and in a public cloud.|| |
Based on Sbcloud it is possible to create hybrid clouds from the on-premise (StorageGRID) resources and giperskeyler (for example, Amazon) with a uniform method of storage and use of data. In architecture of a cloud platform the object storage Sbcloud is a point of acceptance of images of customers — it allowed to simplify migration in a cloud Sbcloud or from it and also placement and data transfer between storages. Besides, the object storage Sbcloud allowed to increase cardinally the level of flexibility of services of backup in comparison with traditional tape drives, emphasized in the company.
As noted in Sbcloud, the most popular scenarios of use of object storage are storage of large volume of unstructured information (for example, video and audio recordings, e-mail, content of web resources), ensuring geoindependent access for users to the software and data, creation of storages and archives of documents for integration with electronic document management systems and also data arrays for researches, testings and operational analytics. The cloud storage gives crucial opportunities for the solution of these tasks: fast scalability, flexibility, availability, simplification of administration and reduction in cost of ownership of IT infrastructure.
The data center TrustInfo in which the cloud storage Sbcloud is unrolled corresponds to Tier III, the level of availability of its resources is 99.985%. It allows to guarantee within standard SLA to customers high data availability, placed in the cloud storage Sbcloud — maintenance of data center does not require a stop of work of its key systems.
Possibility of simultaneous use of different hypervisors for management of virtual resources in a uniform cloud landscape
On May 16, 2019 the Sbcloud company reported that it gave to users an opportunity of simultaneous use of different hypervisors for management of virtual resources in a uniform cloud landscape. Possibilities of modeling of different options of virtual IT infrastructure taking into account business challenges and the budget are expanded: customers can independently select a hypervisor and necessary virtual resources, redistribute them within one cloud between "regions" Sbcloud under control of hypervisors with different cost.
According to the company, a possibility of the choice of hypervisors within a single cloud platform Sbcloud opens for users the following level of freedom during creation of flexible, productive and economic enterprise-solutions in the field of virtualization. Customers, it is important to them to apply at the same time different technologies of virtualization, can create in a uniform cloud Sbcloud virtual IT infrastructures as based on the proprietary solution VMware vSphere using ESXi hypervisor, and based on the environment of virtualization of RUSTEK using open-source of a hypervisor of KVM.
The innovation concept of "regions" Sbcloud allows the customer to use for creation of virtual IT infrastructure cloud segments with the different configured settings: hypervisors, security levels, etc. It opens ample opportunities for creation of multicloud IT infrastructures, seamless integration of clouds from different providers (giperskeyler), allowing them to work together and to be used as a unit and also to provide services from giperskeyler in a cloud IT landscape of the customer. In a uniform control panel different configurations of virtual machines and also detailed billing are available to each "region": what resources are used and as the budget of the enterprise, division, department of the customer is spent.
As practice shows, to vertical scaling of virtual infrastructure it is more convenient to apply technologies of VMware, and to horizontal scaling and automatic balancing of loading – technology of virtualization of RUSTEK with a hypervisor of KVM. Hypervisors of VMware of ESXi and KVM are selected as the most popular tools for management of virtual resources. The hypervisor based on KVM was improved specialists of Servionica and Sbcloud in the course of creation of the RUSTEK platform, its performance is considerably improved in comparison with opensource the solution. RUSTEK – the only thing for May, 2019 the industrial solution based on OpenStack which high-speed performance and fault tolerance conform to requirements of big corporate customers and are confirmed with experience of successful implementations of enterprise-level. Further Sbcloud is going to support and other hypervisors, proprietary and on the open code.
