meet cloud-defined storage
on-prem server-based, enterprise class storage, managed
entirely in the cloud
IT Admins & App Owners
no instructions needed
Cloud-Defined Storage is a cloud-managed SaaS, enabling on-prem, server-based enterprise storage, automating operations and eliminating expensive 3-tier infrastructure.
Cloud-Defined Storage is comprised of nebulon ON, an AI-assisted, cloud control plane which powers an IoT endpoint-based data plane, the nebulon SPU, in your favorite vendors’ application server and delivers the full suite of enterprise data services without consuming any server memory, CPU or network resources.
MOVE ADMINISTRATION TO THE CLOUD
nebulon ON simple. secure. scalable.
Instead of managing dozens of on-prem storage devices from various consoles, manage it all together from a single, cloud-based control plane.
with storage operations delivered as-a-service
Lengthy and complex software update procedures are an artifact of the past. Make use of new features and enhancements instantly through cloud-delivered software updates “as-a-service” – an experience that has yet to become mainstream in on-prem enterprise applications. Also, with AIOps, enjoy predictive maintenance and simplified troubleshooting. Plus get centralized server, storage, and application visibility that enables the necessary tooling of real-time detection of latent issues across your stack and the facilities for corrective measures.
What You Get
- software updates as-a-service
- continuous improvement of services through use of AI/ML
- full stack monitoring and insights
- centrally control firmware of many devices (e.g. SSD firmware updates)
universal insights at your fingertips
A single API endpoint for application owners with direct access to AIOps functions to fully automate their entire IT infrastructure at scale. Global insights unlock unprecedented opportunities for DevOps teams to control and query their servers, storage, and applications.
What You Get
- integrate into existing automation frameworks (Ansible, Terraform)
- automate tedious, manual workflows into a single command
- geographically distributed physical infrastructure insights
app owners self-service provision infrastructure
with customizable application templates tailored for your application clusters
Dynamically compose your infrastructure for your application when combining servers and storage media in a cluster. Tailored, cloud-defined application templates ensure a magical “zero-touch” provisioning experience. Even better? Provision your boot drives & OS images in the same zero-touch approach, so app owners can build complete application clusters at ease.
What You Get
- OS image/boot provisioning
- Dynamic application provisioning
- “Rack to full stack” in <10 minutes
and do it all while maintaining enterprise class security & availability
Your data and control of infrastructure are confined to your datacenters, where hardware-accelerated encryption keeps it secure and private, in-flight and at-rest, making cloud-management no less secure than existing on-prem instrumentation.
