SimpliVity Products

Products for Data Center Transformation

SimpliVity simplifies IT to improve efficiency and agility, and mitigate risk—all while delivering three-fold TCO savings.

SimpliVity’s product portfolio is based on SimpliVity OmniStack software-defined hyperconverged infrastructure. SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure assimilates eight to twelve core data center functions including the hypervisor, compute, storage, network switching, backup, replication, cloud gateway, caching, WAN optimization, real-time deduplication, and more. With three-fold total cost of ownership (TCO) reduction, SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure delivers the best of both worlds: the enterprise-class performance, protection, and resiliency that today’s organizations require, with the cloud economics single-site businesses to large-scale, multi-site Global 2000 enterprises demand.

The core technology in SimpliVity OmniStack is the OmniStack Data Virtualization Platform software and its revolutionary OmniStack Accelerator Card. The Data Virtualization Platform is SimpliVity’s data architecture, a globally-aware file system with data optimization techniques that enables a single, shared, scalable compute and storage resource pool across multiple sites, and provides highly-efficient data storage, management, and mobility. It abstracts data from its underlying hardware, shifting policies and management from infrastructure components to the application workload/virtual machine level. The OmniStack Accelerator Card is a purpose-built PCIe card that offloads OmniStack’s global inline deduplication, compression, and optimization processes to ensure primary CPU resources are available to serve business applications.

SimpliVity Products: Turnkey Hyperconverged Infrastructure

SimpliVity packages OmniStack on x86 platforms—either on 2U servers sold as OmniCube, or with partner systems from Cisco or Lenovo, sold as OmniStack. The portfolio enables x86 choice by providing a flexible architecture with a wide-array of options from the number of cores, amount of memory, and number of HDD and SDD drives.

SimpliVity Products: Key Features

The landscape of converged infrastructure vendors consists of good, better and best. The earliest products to market consist of independent compute, storage and networking products delivered as a pre-racked and pre-cabled system based on a reference architecture approach.

The next wave of market entrants delivers x86 building block appliances combining compute and storage. This improved deployment, acquisition cost, and ease of scale. What’s missing, however, is the data architecture to address performance and capacity efficiency, mobility, and built-in data protection.

That’s where SimpliVity comes in. SimpliVity assimilates ALL IT infrastructure and services below the hypervisor onto highly-efficient and scalable x86 building blocks, contributing to 3x TCO savings.  SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure stands apart from early-stage vendors in several key areas:

Product Feature: Accelerated Data Efficiency

All data is deduplicated, compressed, and optimized inline, at inception, once and forever across all stages of the data lifecycle—without impacting performance. SimpliVity manages data segments in 4 to 8K chunks and deduplicates redundant segments before data is written to disk, eliminating unnecessary read/write IO.  As a result, SimpliVity customers enjoy an average of 40:1 data efficiency, while increasing application performance.

Product Feature: Global Unified Management

  • Simplify day-to-day management and eliminate unnecessary training by integrating with native VM tools, and orchestration and automation software already deployed in your data center.
  • Accelerate the time to deploy infrastructure and application workloads, and enable efficient VM mobility between sites.

Product Feature: Built-In Data Protection

With OmniStack, data protection is built in and ultra efficient.  OmniStack natively includes policy-based, virtual machine-centric backup and WAN-optimized replication for disaster recovery, reducing recovery time objectives (RTOs) and recovery point objectives (RPOs) from hours to minutes.

SimpliVity Products: Benefits

SimpliVity simplifies IT. The world’s leading companies rely on SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure to transform their data centers. Benefits from SimpliVity include

Product Benefit: Reduce TCO

  • Eliminate the need to purchase and manage multiple discrete components, and their associated maintenance contracts, refresh cycles, training classes, and management interfaces.
  • Optimize storage capacity with median efficiency of 40:1 while increasing application performance, and reduce network bandwidth utilization with optimized data transfer.
  • Eliminate costly over-provisioning of performance and capacity with on-demand expansion that delivers linear scalability.

Product Benefit: Improve Efficiency and Agility

  • Streamline operations with a VM-centric management model that eliminates the burden of managing the infrastructure at the individual component level.
  • Simplify day-to-day management and eliminate unnecessary training by integrating with native VM tools, and orchestration and automation software already deployed in your data center.
  • Accelerate the time to deploy infrastructure and application workloads, and enable efficient VM mobility between sites.

Product Benefit: Mitigate Risk

  • Reduce backup and restore times from hours to seconds, and achieve RPOs and RTOs that were previously unimaginable.
  • Eliminate the need for legacy backup and disaster recovery software and hardware.
  • Reduce the required storage capacity and network bandwidth for local and remote backup copies via hyper-efficient VM-centric backup and WAN-optimized replication.
