Westborough, Mass.-based SimpliVity Corp., an IT infrastructure vendor, announced it will enter the IT marketplace with the OmniCube, an all-inclusive, assimilated IT infrastructure platform designed and optimized for the virtual machine environment.
According to the company, OmniCube is an ultra-functional, automated IT Infrastructure platform that empowers a single administrator to manage the infrastructure, exclusively from VMware vCenter.
said Jim Chilton, CIO Americas, Dassault Systemes, said in today’s complex IT infrastructure landscape we need to simplify the stack, reduce costs and stop the overlapping upgrade cycle of equipment. Simplification of the IT infrastructure is one of our top strategic priorities.
OmniCube is a 2U rack-mounted building block that delivers numerous storage, computing, and networking services for the virtual machine environment. Two or more OmniCube systems are deployed together to form an OmniCube Global Federation, a massively scalable pool of shared resources that enables efficient data movement, extensive scalability, and enterprise-class system availability–all managed globally from a single pane of glass.
Each OmniCube system comes standard with unified VM-centric management, in-line global deduplication and compression, bandwidth efficient, and compressed replication.
Doron Kempel, chairman and CEO of SimpliVity, said we have the technology. We can finally dramatically simplify IT infrastructure by assimilating all functionality, performance, protection, and availability into a single automated platform at the hands of the VM administrator. Revolutions require a transformation of the underlying technology. Marketing hyperbole about convergence and repackaging of legacy products will not suffice. Three years ago we embarked upon the development of a new IT infrastructure stack that’s optimized around the VM admin. It is now debuting and will radically simplify IT infrastructure.
