Nebula debuts Nebula One cloud computing configuration appliance
Cloud systems company <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/282450==https://www.nebula.com/" rel='nofollow'>Nebula</a> today announced the availability of the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/282451==https://www.nebula.com/nebula-one" rel='nofollow'>Nebula One</a>, a low-configuration enterprise cloud computer. The hardware is a turnkey private cloud system that provides computational, network, and storage services through a simple self-guided interface with familiar APIs, using industry-standard servers from vendors such as HP, IBM, and Dell.<br />
<br />
At the core of the Nebula One cloud system is the Nebula Cloud Controller, a dedicated hardware appliance that turns pre-outfitted racks of industry-standard servers into a scalable on-site cloud system. Nebula One runs Cosmos, Nebula's distributed enterprise cloud operating system, which builds on the industry-standard OpenStack to provide a self-service user experience. In addition, the OS adds compatibility with Amazon Web Services and OpenStack APIs to equipment that may not already boast compatibility with the services.<br />
<br />
The company claims that a single-rack server may be enough for most businesses, but the appliance can scale up multi-rack deployments up to 1,600 processor cores, 9.4TB of memory, and 2.3PB of storage to meet the needs of large enterprises. The CTR-1500 Nebula One device itself is a dual 16-core 1.6Ghz Opteron server coupled with a 10 Gigabit Ethernet switch, all mounted in a 2U chassis.<br />
<br />
The appliance has 64GB of RAM, with a 32GB mSATA flash drive for caching. A 256GB 2.5-inch SSD paired with a 1TB 7200 RPM hard drive is provided for storage. A pair of 650W hot-swappable power supplies drive the unit.<br />
<br />
Nebula One appliances are available immediately. Pricing is dependent on licensing agreements at $100,000 and up. Quotes on specific configurations are available directly from the manufacturer.<br />
