LONDON, FEBRUARY 22nd, 2017: vScaler, a cloud infrastructure and services provider, has joined the Intel® Cloud Builders ecosystem, enabling the company to collaborate with diverse cloud companies and help to accelerate the design and deployment of world-class cloud solutions. Intel Cloud Builders brings together data center leaders to drive innovation and accelerate data center technology.
vScaler: Application specific cloud
The vScaler cloud platform is powered by OpenStack; a leading open source IaaS provider, which powers many of the world’s most notable science and research organisations.
Finance, Government, Broadcast & Media, Scientific Research, Oil & Gas, Manufacturing and Bioinformatics are simply a few of the verticals that can leverage the vScaler cloud platform and services. vScaler allows you to provision full HPC-on-Demand clusters, Big Data analytics, accelerated GPU compute (for Machine Learning), tiered and accelerated storage platforms. In contrast with other IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) only platforms, we work with our clients to optimise their infrastructure (hardware and network) to allow their desired applications to run successfully in a cloud environment.
“We remove the deployment complexity issues presented by OpenStack, and provide our clients with a customised management portal that allows you to manage your entire infrastructure from a single interface,” comments David Power, CTO at vScaler. “In addition to this we provide full application stacks for a range of verticals as well as on-demand consultancy from our expert team. Our tailor-made, software-defined infrastructure cuts away time wasted on the distractions of setup and enables our users to concentrate on the task at hand.”
vScaler Technology Capabilities
vScaler for HPC: Our finely tuned software enables users to deploy HPC clusters of any scale, either on premise, in the cloud or across both in a hybrid model. The HPC-on-Demand product provides a compelling solution for many challenges of delivering flexible infrastructure for research computing.
vScaler for Big Data: Our interface takes all the administrative burden out of configuring a complex analytical cluster and software eco-system. Select from your preferred distribution (Hadoop, Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR) and begin running data-intensive applications or IOT (Internet Of Things) analytics in minutes.
vScaler for AI & Deep Learning: vScaler enables users to spin up a deep learning environment with all the appropriate DL frameworks installed and ready for use. These frameworks are also accelerated using the world’s fastest GPUs, purpose-built to dramatically reduce training time for Deep learning and Machine Learning algorithms and AI simulations.
vScaler for Tiered & Accelerated Storage: Leveraging multiple storage platforms, each with unique underlying technologies, vScaler can provide a wide range of solutions ideal for low latency, high performance data access. From DRAM to NVDIMMs, right through to traditional spinning disk, vScaler can deliver a tiered, optimal storage solution to eliminate bottlenecks.
Joining the Intel® Cloud Builders Ecosystem
Intel® Cloud Builders brings together industry leaders to develop, optimize, and accelerate deployments of cloud solutions for the modern data center. The collaborative Intel Cloud Builders ecosystem develops reference architectures, solution briefs, and technical guidance to accelerate cloud deployments and drive data center innovation. The Intel Cloud Builders program also delivers developer training to drive customer proofs of concepts (POCs) and trials, which leads to the acceleration of solution deployment.
vScaler has been under development for a number of years, orchestrated from a consortium of IT professionals who have recognised the need for a hybrid approach to cloud computing. At its core, vScaler is essentially a cloud platform and service that offers a hybrid approach towards cloud computing, allowing for private cloud adoption and access to a public resource when demand dictates. With vScaler, you can deploy your on premise private cloud in minutes, add cloud-based services or applications, and scale to public or hybrid cloud environments on-demand – all under a single management portal.
