Cloud is one of the many marketing terms recently created to promote a service or a product which in this case is referred to any service that is hosted on third party infrastructure.

OnApp delivers to you the original meaning of Cloud by providing you with a platform that provides resources on demand, it can scale easily using on-premises and distributed infrastructures and it works as metered services to measure and distribute costs across departments.

In short: OnApp is the Cloud you can own and it costs less than renting one.

 

A single pane of glass to run your Private Cloud

A single pane of glass to run your Private Cloud

Running your own Cloud is now as simple as renting somebody else's infrastructure with the advantage that you are in control of your data while at the same time you are lowering your costs.

All the computing, networking and storage resources are managed and monitored from a single web interface ready to be assigned to your workloads.
Going beyond your local infrastructure

Going beyond your local infrastructure

With OnApp you are not constrained by your local infrastructure like with your old virtualisation environment.

OnApp helps you creating Hybrid Cloud configurations using your office locations and data centres, you can federate with OnApp service providers around the world to distribute your Internet facing services wherever you need them to be and you can manage your existing AWS instances from a single pane of glass.
A lot more than HCI

A lot more than HCI

OnApp takes care of managing local and remote compute, storage and network resources for you providing you with a truly scalable and easy to use hyperconverged platform.

Unlike other HCI platforms, OnApp, isn't limited to a few standardised appliances, you can choose the nodes configurations that best suits your compute and storage needs, you can even hot plug/swap drives at any time if you need more storage without replacing the nodes.
Manage your Cloud from wherever you are

Manage your Cloud from wherever you are

As a true Cloud platform OnApp allows your to monitor and take action wherever you are. You can use the OnApp Control Panel or the provided apps for Android, iPhone and iPad.

OnApp i componenti del vostro Cloud

Il Cloud semplice e modulareOnApp Enterprise Cloud

OnApp Cloud building blocks

Come sappiamo il Cloud è fatto di server e cavi di rete ma alcune infrastrutture sono più efficienti di altre. Con i Cloud Blocks di Intel potete iniziare a creare un vostro Cloud Privato con uno chassis a 2 unità che vi permetterà poi di far crescere la vostra infrastruttura quanto volete. Tutte le risorse di cui avete bisogno, come capacità di calcole e di archiviazione, sono già incluse e non avrete bisogno di acquistare costose SAN esterne.

 

Configurazione efficiente e modulare

Contenuti nel vostro primo Cloud Block di Intel troverete i 4 componenti iniziali, 1 Pannello di Controllo, 1 per il backup e 2 nodi ibridi di calcolo e storage*.


Intel OnApp Cloud Block
Una volta installato questo primo componente, che nel caso di PMI potrebbe anche essere l'unico necessario, potrete far crescere il vostro Cloud aggiungendo altri moduli configurati per soddisfare le vostre esigenze.

A seconda delle necessità potrete scegliere, per ogni nodo, CPU che vanno da 8 a 24 core (2 CPU per nodo), installare fino ad 1TB di RAM e 6 dischi standard od un mix di SSD e NVMe. Se volete iniziare subito con 4 nodi dedicati al vostro Cloud sia il nodo di controllo che quello di backup possono essere installati separatamente in server a 1 unità.

 

Configurazioni per PMI e filiali

Configurazioni per PMI e filiali

Una configurazione compatta ed economica per piccole aziende ed uffici remoti. Se non avete applicazioni che scrivono in modo intensivo sullo storage distribuito potete anche utilizzare adattatori di rete da 1Gb (almeno 4) per sincronizzare i dati tra i vari nodi riducendo ulteriormente l'investimento-

Questo è tutto quello di cui avete bisogno per il vostro primo Cloud Privato
Cloud Enterprise

Cloud Enterprise

In ambiente di tipo Enterprise dove database ed altre applicazioni scrivono ed accedono a grandi quantità di dati, raccomandiamo di utilizzare adattatori di rete da 10Gb o 40Gb.
Se avete optato per storage SSD o NVMe è sicuramente meglio configurare la rete con NIC a 40Gb per evitare che rallenti le operazioni di scrittura e replica.

E' un investimento che è comunque più basso di una configurazione basata su VMWare ed una SAN esterna e permette di espandere il vostro Cloud Privato molto facilmente.
Le configurazioni adatte alle vostre esigenze

Le configurazioni adatte alle vostre esigenze

A seconda delle vostre esigenze potete decidere quali componenti si adattino meglio ai vostri carichi di lavoro.

Potreste voler separare alcuni dei componenti di OnApp, come il pannello di controllo ed il nodo di backup su nodi dedicati o archiviare i vostri dati su nodi di storage che supportano 72 dischi.

Con OnApp potete estendere e modellare il vostro Cloud come volete.
Iperconvergenza ed automazione

Iperconvergenza ed automazione

L'iperconvergenza è il modello di base del Cloud ed OnApp ne rende la gestione ancora più facile.
Tutti gli elementi della vostra infrastruttura vi vengono presentati come risorse (CPU, RAM e storage) che voi potete allocare ai vostri carichi di lavoro come fareste con qualsiasi altro Cloud provider.

Tutti i tool di gestione necessari per trasformare un'infrastruttura iperconvergente in Cloud con automazione della gestione dei guasti nel caso di malfunzionamento di un disco, un nodo od un'intero data centre sono presi in carico da OnApp.

Dimenticatevi dei costi e delle complessità dei sistemi di virtualizzazione legacy o del modello di affitto perenne del Cloud Pubblico.

Adesso essere i proprietari del vostro Cloud richiede investimenti molto contenuti e non necessità di un team di specialisti per gestirlo.

Se stavate considerando il Cloud perchè cercavate una soluzione che vi permetta di gestire i vostri carichi di lavoro senza preoccuparvi dell'infrastruttura allora avete trovato quello che cercate con OnApp. E' facile da gestire quanto il Cloud pubblico ed adesso può essere vostro ad un costo nettamente inferiore che affittare server da terze parti o installare una infrastruttura di virtualizzazione come VMWare.

Un case study recente ha dimostrato che l'investimento necessario ad acquisire un Cloud Privato con OnApp è equivalente a 3 mesi di affitto di una piattaforma di Cloud pubblico.

 

Le VM che ti servono in pochi click

Le VM che ti servono in pochi click

Potete creare macchine virtuali scegliendo quelle che vi servono da una collezione di centinaia di templete che potete personalizzare o potete caricare le ISO o VM in formato OVA nell'eventualità che quello che cercate non sia disponibile.

"Ricette" di preconfigurazione, template personalizzati ed altri strumenti di automazione rende la gestione delle macchine virtuali semplice e veloce.

I Container Servers di OnApp mettono a disposizione gli strumenti che servono ai team che preferiscono combinare varie metodologie di gestione delle piattaforme e di sviluppo denominate "DevOps".

Docker e Kubernetes vengono gestiti in modo semplice con CoreOS permettendo ai vostri sviluppatori di concentrarsi sul risultato finale e non sulla parte di gestione infrastrutturale.
Applicazioni pronte all'uso

Applicazioni pronte all'uso

Il componente Application Server di OnApp vi permette di accedere ad una libreria di centinaia di applicazioni web autoconfigurabili e pronte all'uso per utilizzare il vostro Cloud Privato come una Platform as a Service (PaaS) o erogare Software as a Service (SaaS).

Come sul Cloud Pubblico potete cliccare sull'applicazione che desiderate attivare e dopo aver fornito pochi parametri è pronta all'uso, nessun bisogno di seguire complessi processi di installazione.

OnApp è stato creato per integrarsi con piattaforme esistenti
Se state modernizzando la vostra infrastruttura con OnApp ma avete ancora una cluster VMWare, potete integrare i due sistemi e gestirli entrambe tramite il Pannello di Controllo di OnApp.

Quando sarete pronti a dismettere VMWare potrete migrare le VM esportandole in formato OVA ed importandole in OnApp.

OnApp your Cloud building blocks

Your Cloud building blocksOnApp Enterprise Cloud

OnApp Cloud building blocks

 

All Cloud infrastructures are made of servers and cables but some are more efficient than others. With Intel Cloud Blocks you can start creating your Cloud with a 2U chassis to then grow as much as you need. All the resources you require, such as compute power and distributed storage, are already included and there is no need to purchase expensive external SAN.

 

Efficient and modular configuration

To create your first OnApp Cloud infrastructure you will need 1 Control Panel, 1 Backup node and 2 Compute/Storage nodes.


Intel OnApp Cloud Block
Once that is in place you can then grow your Cloud to hundreds of nodes by just adding Cloud Blocks* configured to match your workload requirements.

Depending on your requirements you can choose CPUs from 8 to 24 cores, install up to 1Tb of RAM per node and mix HDDs, SSDs and NVMes in the 6 drives slots available in each node.
The Control Panel and Backup nodes can also be installed on separate servers if you want to start with 4 compute nodes.

 

SMEs and ROBO configurations

SMEs and ROBO configurations

A compact and inexpensive configuration for SMEs and Remote Offices. If don't have write intensive intensive operations then you can use 4 1Gb network ports to link the compute/storage nodes with the backup node.
Management, local and public networking will be configured on the same swithch using VLANs

This is all you need to create your first Cloud infrastructure.
Enterprise Cloud configuration

Enterprise Cloud configuration

In an enterprise environment where growth is planned and intensive write operations are part of the standard workloads we recommend to start with a 10 or 40 Gb switch to connect the compute/storage nodes and the backup node.

It's an investment that still costs a lot less than a VMWare/SAN configuration and allows for fast and easy scalability of your Private Cloud.
Adapting to your requirements

Adapting to your requirements

Depending on the types of requirements your have you can choose the building blocks you need and mix them the way you like.

You may want to use a separate 1U node for your Control Panel or you could use 3,5" drives as your Cloud needs more storage capacity than speed.
You can also add nodes with tens of high capacity drives for long term archival and backups.

In short you can model your Cloud to match your exact requirements when you want.
HyperConvergence and automation

HyperConvergence and automation

It can't be any easier to build a Private Cloud from OnApp's HyperConverged Infrastructure.
All the elements of your infrastructure are presented to you as resources that you can allocate to your workloads just as you would do with any other Cloud provider.

All the management and automation necessary to go from hyperconvergence to Cloud with full recovery in case of failure of a drive, a node or even a data centre is taken care of by OnApp.

* Note: the image doesn't show the recommended networking configurations. A minimum of 4 x 1Gb NICs are required for fast data replication in SMEs/ROBO configurations. At least 1 x 10Gb NIC per node is the most efficient configuration for enterprise workloads.

OnApp your Hybrid Cloud

Hybrid and Federated CloudOnApp Enterprise Cloud

OnApp Federated Cloud resources locations

 

To build, or rent, their Public Cloud infrastructures Amazon, Microsoft and Google are spending billions and that's something very few can afford to do on their own but do we really need massive scale infrastructures owned by a handful of corporations? Not any more.

OnApp has been providing ISPs and MSPs around the world the technologies necessary to build efficient, scalable and secure Cloud infrastructures which now account for 30% of the Cloud market. These, in principle, are the same technologies used to create AWS or Azure which are now available in the OnApp Enterprise offering to allow organisations of all sizes to create their own Cloud and, if they wish, to extend their reach through OnApp partners.

Organisations can choose what they want to keep on their Private Cloud and what they want or need to distribute across the federated Cloud to be compliant with local regulation or to position Internet facing services where connectivity and resilience satisfies their requirements.
 

Move workloads where you need them

Move workloads where you need them

If your organisation is part of a heavily regulated sector you can distribute your own OnApp Enterprise Cloud where needed.

Just deploy workloads on your ROBO (Remote Office/Branch Office) appliances, located in your offices or local data centres, with the peace of mind that your data will only stay within your own distributed infrastructure.
A local Cloud with global reach

A local Cloud with global reach

Most businesses have predictable workloads so for most of the year your local Private Cloud covers all your requirements.

If you have seasonal peaks or you plan a marketing campaign in a specific area around the world there is no need to buy more OnApp nodes, just select an OnApp parner that has the resources you need and where you need them and move the workloads there for the time necessary. Easy.
Geographical Disaster Recovery

Geographical Disaster Recovery

If you have two or more sites you can use the built in Disaster Recovery services to replicate your virtual machine and data.
In case of failure in one of the sites all your data is still safe and you can start working again from the other site in matter of minutes.

If at present you have only one site OnApp can offer you the Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS).
Manage and migrate multi-Cloud infrastructures

Manage and migrate multi-Cloud infrastructures

OnApp is a true multi-Cloud platform not just a pretty web interface. It can run your KVM, Xen VMs and manage your VMWare infrastructure but it doesn't stop there.

If you have workloads running on AWS you can control your instances from within OnApp management interface and/or migrate them to your OnApp Private Cloud to reduce costs.

Into "Serverless"? Now you can run your preferred development frameworks on your own Cloud as well.

OnApp your Private Cloud

With OnApp you can own your Private CloudOnApp Enterprise Cloud

OnApp Enterprise Cloud Diagram

 

Forget the high costs and complexity of a legacy virtualisation infrastructure or the rent forever model of a Public Cloud.

Now owning your Cloud is inexpensive and it doesn't require a whole team of highly specialised technicians to manage it.

If you were thinking about Cloud because it allows you to just manage your workload without worrying about the underlying infrastructure then you have found it in OnApp. It's as convenient and easy to manage as a Public Cloud but you can own it.

A recent case study has shown a ROI that is as low as the equivalent of renting the resources needed from a major Cloud provider for 3 months.

 

Manage VMs like a pro

Manage VMs like a pro

You can choose the VM you need from hundreds of ready to use Linux and Windows templates that your can tailor to your needs or you can upload your own ISOs or OVA to create your custom VMs.

Recipes, custom templates and other automation tools makes deployment of large number of virtual machines fast and easy.
Helping DevOps with Containers

Helping DevOps with Containers

OnApp Container Servers give you a framework for Docker to be deployed in your cloud.
Container Servers are based on a CoreOS template giving you all of the intuitive provisioning and management of standard OnApp virtual servers, but with the tools to enable your development team to run Docker and Kubernetes.
The applications you need, ready to use

The applications you need, ready to use

Application Servers are an add-on to the OnApp Cloud platform. They give you instant access to a library of hundreds of SaaS and PaaS applications, which deploy in your Private Cloud in a couple of clicks and are managed just like virtual servers.
There is no easier way to test the solution you may need before going in production mode.
Your multi-Cloud infrastructure

Your multi-Cloud infrastructure

OnApp is not a rip and replace platform.
If you still have a VMWare infrastructure you can integrate it with OnApp and even manage it from OnApp's control panel while you migrate workloads on your new Private Cloud.
You can move virtual machines fairly easily by converting them in OVA format and importing them into your OnApp Cloud.
