Collax Business Server

Collax FlexibleIT_LogoThe IT infrastructure for SMEs

Collax Business Server is an all-in-one IT solution which provides all the communication, storage and security services an SME (Small to Medium Enterprise) may require.


It's a perfect alternative to Microsoft Small Business Server which will reduce by at least 50% your purchasing and maintenance costs while it provides more service and requires, thanks to its efficiency, servers with much lower specifications.


Collax Business Server can also replace a good number of devices like firewalls, faxes, storage servers and domain controllers so you'll be able to simplify your IT infrastructure, reduce your support and licensing costs while cutting also you electricity bill as you'll need only one low power server to perform all the tasks that where managed by different devices.

It can also be an excellent complement to existing IT set-ups as, being able to connect to Microsoft Active Directory, it can offload your main Windows server of some services maintaining a single authentication solution.

System administrators will find it very easy to manage a Collax Business Server as its comprehensive but easy to use web management interface provide total control over the server's features.  For easy and quick recovery, in case of hardware failure, all the configuration and data backup tools are included.

Zarafa Communication Platform integration


From a user point of view nothing changes, apart from the increase in services and responsiveness, and it can be used in mixed Windows, OS X e Linux environments.

E-mail, Fax, Instant Messaging, remote access and document sharing are just some of the services available to all authorised users.

To secure Internet access is possible to activate the built in web filtering features so that access will be restricted and filtered depending on the configured security levels based on user groups.

 

Collax Business Server, together with the Kopano Collaboration Platform add-on, can be seen as an enhanced version of Microsoft Small Business Server as it includes all the services you already know of MS SBS but it adds on top all the security and communication features which would otherwise require additional equipments and licenses.
default Collax Business Server free version and trial

The free version is fully featured but limited for up to 5 users.

Collax V-SAN - SANless high availability

Collax FlexibleITCollax V-SAN - SANless high availability


V-Store embedded SANMost highly available (HA) configurations require separate shared storage units that allows to restart the virtual machines on the other node. Those units, called SAN (Storage Area Network) are connected with Fiber Channel or InfiniBand links and can be very complex to manage and expensive putting them out of reach of small and medium size company's budgets.

The Embedded SAN solution provided by the Collax V-SAN module eliminates complexity, reduces costs and increases the performances making it an excellent solution for small companies or departmental requirements.

With Collax V-SAN creates a shared virtual storage using the local drives, which is seen by both servers as a single large disk, so you can install an run your Windows or Linux virtual machines on each server.

Collax Highly Available Configuration

With near to zero loss of performances, V-SAN, replicates in real time every bit written on the Embedded SAN so even it the event of a server failure the other node will restart the VMs with no loss of data.

Collax Highly Available Configuration FailOver

pdf competitive analisys between Collax V-Cube, VMWare VSphere 5.0 and Microsoft Hyper-V 2008 R2 (665 KB) allows you to verify that, Collax V-Cube with its modules, will satisfy your requirements reducing costs and increasing the availability of your business critical applications.

This kind of configuration, with 2 active servers or low power appliances, with VMWare could cost you easily £20000 while with Collax and including hardware you'll need to invest only a quarter of that.

General features:

  • Installation can be done in few clicks
  • Centralised web management
  • No need for dedicated control node
  • Live migration delle macchine virtuali tra i nodi
  • It doesn't not require external SAN storage units

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.

* Nota: l'immagine non mostra la configurazione di rete raccomandata. Un minimo di 4 x 1Gb NIC sono necessarie per la replicazione dei dati in configurazioni per PMI o ROBO. Almeno 1 x 10GB per nodo è raccomandata per carichi di lavoro per aziende medio grandi.

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.
