nebulon smartCore for VMware modernization

why nebulon smartCore?

transform your traditional virtualization environment into a hyperscale internal cloud ​


less time spent on admin/reporting


VMware server provisioning vs days


data/storage offline during updates


fewer server & licensing costs vs HCI

What made Nebulon really attractive was the fact that we cut our costs in half versus purchasing disaggregated storage and compute solutions. And because the solution doesn’t consume any server CPU, memory, or networking resources like HCI alternatives, we are able to use 100% of our server for the applications we run. 

– Marc Pratt, Strategic Alliances Manager at SYSDBA

VMware server 

provisioning vs days

reduced operational overheads & infrastructure-as-code experience for VMware

single click updates/reporting filtered by geo, app or group 
– as-a-service cloud-based managemen
templates instantiate IT-certified VMware data stores in minutes

improved availability and security


data/storage offline during updates

maintain or improve maintain/improve data availability

– as-a-service software updates delivered non-disruptively  
software micro-updates never take storage resources offline
separate SPU & server fault domains means server & hypervisor maintenance never takes storage resources offline

reduce infrastructure costs


fewer server & licensing costs vs HCI

meaningful infrastructure cost reduction & density advantage​​​

– no server resources are consumed by data services​
– native bare metal & container support avoids hypervisor cost​
– improved density results cost savings in space, power, cooling & admin​
