NodeWeaver is ideally suited to address a variety of use cases

 
 
  • Edge Computing/Internet of Things (IoT)
    • NodeWeaver HCI provides an ideal platform to deliver a flexible, scalable, agile, and easy-to-manage computing environment for running Edge Computing/IoT workloads. NodeWeaver's software-only approach enables the freedom and flexibility to optimize the hardware according to the individual requirements as opposed to purchasing pre-configured bundled appliances or pre-determined hardware configurations. The simple management means that there is no need for dedicated IT personnel in place, making it the ideal platform for unattended, 24/7 operations across multiple locations. The self-healing features of NodeWeaver makes it easy to create small, powerful, and robust islands of compute infrastructure, fully remotely managed, secure, and able to withstand nearly any kind of fault with little or no impact on operations and minimal manual intervention. Additionally, NodeWeaver is very lightweight and designed to run efficiently on limited hardware, which is particularly relevant for many IoT-related use cases.
       
  • MSP/ISV/OEM/VAR
    • For Managed Service Providers (MSP) or VARs who are looking to branch out into managed private infrastructure services, ISVs whose software needs to reside on infrastructure at the customer’s site, and OEMs who want to expand/enhance their hardware offerings, NodeWeaver is well suited. The management interface can even be customized with your logo to extend your brand, and NodeWeaver’s TCO enables you to maximize the value delivered to your customers.
       
  • Server Virtualization/Data Center Consolidation
    • The benefits of server virtualization are well documented – efficiency, speed, agility, reliability, reduced footprint, and recoverability. NodeWeaver delivers integrated virtualization, networking, and storage that is easy to deploy and manage, enables you to scale out and pay as you grow, all at a fraction of the cost. NodeWeaver's integrated KVM hypervisor enables you to completely replace VMware in a virtualized datacenter, one of the biggest single costs for many customers today.  No more VMware licenses, no more VMware tax on every VM you run in your environment.
       
  • Remote Office/Branch Office
    • From the smallest SMB with a remote office, to the largest retail chain – companies of all sizes face the cost of managing remote IT assets. Hardware faults, backups/DR, updates, security management, the need to have on-site IT support: all contribute to runaway costs and complexity. More than one-fourth of business application workloads run outside of data centers, and many remote sites lack high-speed connectivity, making it difficult to centralize IT applications. NodeWeaver provides the right remote office solution for any company, of any size, any office distribution.
       
  • Software Development
    • There are few sectors as demanding and dynamic as software development. Software developers are required to adopt ever changing tools and methodologies, while beingforced within the constraints of a traditional IT infrastructure. NodeWeaver brings youthe best advantages of public clouds with a total flexibility of deployment and a fixed cost. Completely API driven, NodeWeaver supports equally well traditional development and DevOps, Windows and Linux environments, including VDI and Desktop-as-a-Service models for thick IDEs and desktop emulators.
       
  • Analytics
    • Analytics Clusters:  NodeWeaver’s comparatively high value-for-performance makes it an ideal platform for analytics.  Most analytics solutions require a significant investment in compute, storage and virtualization capacity, often costing more than the analytics software.  NodeWeaver dramatically changes the balance of cost between infrastructure and software, preserving higher margins for value-added software and services
    • Analytics-at-the-Edge:  NodeWeaver's low cost and flexible hardware support allows users to deploy collection and processing of data analytics right where the data is generated.  Applications where improved response time, decision time, and security are important but without breaking the budget can benefit from the increased edge locality that is possible with NodeWeaver.
       
  • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure
    • Many of the challenges that people have experienced when deploying virtual desktops stem from storage and network performance and addressing these challenges with proprietary vendor storage and network hardware is prohibitively costly. Because NodeWeaver is software-based, you have the flexibility to configure commodity servers to address these issues. Want to fill the server with SSDs for maximum IOPs and add 10GbE and/or graphics cards? The additional cost for these on commodity servers is negligible.  Data management and protection is simplified with performance-efficient snapshots and zero-copy clones, which provide the ability to create thousands of virtual desktops.
  • Backup/DR
    • While others charge extra for data protection features, Nodeweaver includes backup, replication and disaster recovery features right out of the box.
      • Local and remote backup and restore
      • Redirect-on-Write snapshots
      • Remote data replication
      • Metro-Cluster capability (network dependent)
      • Microsoft VSS snapshot integration
  • Scale-out Storage
    • NodeWeaver's fast and efficient storage architecture lets users build scale-out storage clusters for a wide variety of uses, from "cheap and deep" low cost data lakes, standard performance mixed magnetic and solid state disk configurations, up to ultra-performance, all-flash data caches.  NodeWeaver's support of lower-cost commodity hardware and comparatively low software acquisition cost allows customers to repurpose savings to increase their capacity or performance surplus should they desire.
