Collax V-Cube

The virtualisation solution for SMEsCollax FlexibleIT Logo

Collax V-Cube - virtualisation, high availability and clusteringCollax V-Cube represents, for small to medium sized companies, the opportunity of benefiting from the same virtualisation solutions used by large organisations but at a fraction of the cost.

V-Cube is based on technologies supported by other known brands like RedHat, IBM or Intel but optimised and adapted to satisfy the requirements of smaller infrastructures. Set-up and management are so simple that can take less than half an hour, for a technician not specialised in virtualisation technologies, to install a Collax V-Cube.

Thanks to the provided migration tools existing servers can be consolidated on the V-Cube virtualisation environment with very little downtime.

Collax's virtualisation platform is performing a lot better than the competition so many companies migrate to it, even from free of charge platforms (like VMware ESXi, Xen Server and Microsoft Hyper-V), as they can fit more virtual servers on the same hardware. Then being managed by just using a browser it makes it easier to support it from wherever you are.

The following graphic shows Collax V-Cube's architecture:
