OpenStack. Delivered.

On-premise OpenStack for mission critical workloads. Introducing WinguPod™.

The business world of today is a place of intense competition. In a paradigm shift, many brick-and-mortar companies now face increased competition from online companies. To thrive in this new business environment companies need to transform Information Technology (IT) in their businesses. In order to remain relevant and competitive, IT must transform to deliver mobile and online applications that securely delivers self-service, on-demand capability to customers. To achieve this, software engineering departments must look at their businesses through the eyes of their customers. In order to quickly react to customer demands, business needs and IT strategy and technology platform that is highly adaptable. It needs to be cost effective, agile and flexible.

OpenStack provides an open and flexible framework that organisations can use as the underlying technology that drives business transformation from a rigid design to a software-defined, on demand, self service platform. This platform supports the business operations and software development efforts.

OpenStack delivers a platform for rapid development, testing and deployment of mission critical and web scale business applications. Access to self service, on demand resources provide business the freedom to innovate. The ability to automate IT operations delivers agility and efficient capacity planning and control.

The global OpenStack community provides the maintenance, support and extended capabilities that business expects for their mission critical IT environments. The open API’s and extensive driver support for almost all major IT vendors avoids vendor lock-in and affords business the opportunity to move workloads between on-premise and public clouds. As an open platform, business can contribute code and requirements to the larger OpenStack community.

The WinguPod™ on-premise OpenStack platform delivers a high-performance, scalable, open, extensible and vendor supported private cloud solution. Uniform API’s ensures compatibility with OpenStack powered clouds such as Wingu or other well-known public clouds. Superior performance is guaranteed with an all flash storage architecture powered using the latest generation Intel Xeon™ processors. Fast network paths are provided via an all 10 Gbps network design with multiple ports per node. The WinguPod™ platform can easily be extended with products and service from the larger OpenStack community.
