NodeWeaver is ideally suited to address a variety of 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 the ideal platform.  The management interface can be customized with your logo to extend your brand and NodeWeaver’s TCO enables you to maximize the value delivered to your customers.
       
  • Private Cloud/Cloudlet/Micro-Datacenter
    • There are many existing and emerging types of workloads and applications which require locality and dispersion as opposed to the centralization and consolidation offered by hyperscale public cloud infrastructure. Edge Computing (also referred to as "cloudlets" and "micro-datacenters") is rapidly emerging as a approach for placing compute and storage resources in close proximity to the devices that require these resources. The simplicity, flexibility, and cost-efficiency of NodeWeaver make it an ideal solution for edge applications. 
       
  • 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 completely replaces 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
    • NodeWeaver is the ideal platform for ROBO - Remote Office/Branch Offices. Easy to manage, NodeWeaver can remotely control hundreds of nodes in different locations, each with its own replication and disaster recovery rules. The easy management means that there is no need for dedicated IT personnel in place, making it the ideal platform for unattended, 24/7 operations. The self-healing infrastructure of NodeWeaver makes it easy to create small virtualization islands, fully remotely managed, secure and able to withstand any kind of fault with little or no impact on operations. If a node fails, a new one can be added to resume full operations with no downtime at all.  With the integrated snapshot and backup capabilities, virtual machines can be moved efficiently between offices, allowing personnel mobility - including desktops, both on-demand and persistent

 

  • 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.


 

  • 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.
