Every once in a while, the world of IT sees a technological breakthrough and suddenly, everything’s changed.
We went through this back in the days when VMware™ revolutionized IT by breaking down the “one server, one application” model we all took as the necessary status quo. The inefficiencies and inflexibility of that model were obvious in retrospect. But they weren’t so obvious when that’s what everyone did.
It took a few years, but virtualization went from an unproven idea to a mainstream capability. The benefits of it were so clear-cut that everyone jumped on the bandwagon and started virtualizing.
Today, virtualization is a mature technology, and everyone is doing it. It’s become the new status quo. And like the old status quo, it seems fine, until something disruptive emerges that’s better.
And now, something better IS emerging. And it may be the technological breakthrough you’ve been looking for.
You’ve heard of software-defined IT before, and probably understand that using software to deliver distinctive, virtualized compute, storage, and networking capabilities on top of commodity hardware makes good sense. After all, that’s what the Googles and Amazons of the world do. They build code that creates a complete environment on top of inexpensive servers, drives, and network. And then they use it to build new services and cut their costs.
But up until now, that’s been hard to do in your own data center. Sure, you can go buy private cloud software from commercial vendors or open source projects, but that software typically comes with its own set of problems:
- You’re stuck with a steep learning curve.
- It requires specialized skills.
- It tends to be costly and disruptive.
You’re spending your days doing a science project while keeping your existing environment up and running. That’s a challenge no school system should face. You don’t have time, personnel, or budget for that!
But there IS a better way forward.
What if you could:
- Break out of legacy limitations without disruption or downtime?
- Build a leading-edge infrastructure that’s built on the next big shift in IT?
- Experience a turnkey private cloud that software defines EVERYTHING?
Cloudistics delivers on these promises. It’s software defined virtualization for everything—compute, storage, and networking—and unlike other alternatives where you pay more for basic capabilities like an integrated application marketplace, network virtualization, multi-site disaster recovery, or analytics, Cloudistics gives you everything as part of the basic platform, and much more.
Why does Cloudistics matter? We’re breaking through all the legacy limitations and expectations you’ve been forced to expect. Unlike nearly any other platform, we’re a premium private cloud that’s up and running in less than 5 hours, built for an IT generalist to manage, comes with groundbreaking proactive support, and offers a superior experience other platforms—legacy, public, or private—simply can’t match.
Does that look like a breakthrough?
I know, I know, it’s easy for a vendor to talk about their platform. But don’t take our word for it. Our customers tell us that Cloudistics stands out in four key ways:
Rapid Application Deployment and Scaling.
Cloudistics is built to be agile. We install it for you and the integrated application marketplace puts a collection of operating system and application templates at your fingertips. From the loading dock to cloud in 1 day, deploy enterprise applications in 5 minutes!
No Hardware Management.
Cloudistics makes it easy for you to save money, time and IT staff resources by overlaying integrated software-defined compute, networking, and storage on hardware. Cloudistics automates hardware management to free staff to focus on other innovative mission-critical IT and business initiatives, and it even automates adding additional compute and storage. Our turnkey & automated platform reduces system management costs by 40%.*
Proactive Support, Maintenance and Updates.
Our EarlyInsight premium support spans everything from automated trouble ticket creation, one button log retrieval, a managed patch/update service, remote assist and one-touch access to engineers via secured chat that’s built into the platform. By automating system management, upgrades, and by including proactive premium support, Cloudistics reduces human resources costs by 60%.*
No Special Skills Required.
You do not have to have to have a cloud certification or a staff of hardware specialists with tribal knowledge to engage with and use Cloudistics. Any IT generalist can monitor and manage it. A recent report proves that the knowledge transfer from deployment team to IT administrator took an hour. We save organizations up to 40% in training & specialist costs.*
These four ways we disrupt the status quo are built into our DNA. Cloudistics goes beyond other alternatives in a package that’s easy to use, easy to build on, and easy to trust. IDC thinks that we are “the first true software-defined infrastructure,” and school systems like yours are looking into our disruptive approach to IT.
