AltosCloud HCI for Sunlight HCI

The next-gen super thin HCI hypervisor used, NexVisor, is architected to efficiently handle Big Data workloads superfast – 3x the performance for Hadoop, Spark, Databricks or Cloudera workloads. This extends to your workloads – which can continue to run in AWS on NexVisor with no change. It supports hybrid deployments and can run on-prem, in the cloud (AWS) or at the edge.

AltosCloud HCI for Sunlight HCI – Design for performance

The ultra-thin hypervisor can take advantage of today’s high performance NVMe storage and 100G networking, allowing you to virtualize at bare-metal performance levels and unlocking the performance your applications need.

Ultra-thin Hypervisor

New generation Hypervisor built from the ground-up to support today’s high performance hardware technology with almost zero overhead

High IOPS performance

High IOPS performance make our solution suitable for constraint computing environment where there are limited resources. It reduce server nodes and hardware cost needed for each HCI stack, while bringing blasting fast data processing speed.

Small Memory Footprint

The stack has a tiny memory footprint, therefore enterprises can rapidly response to critical application demand. Now’s the moment for enterprises to beat back competition by utilizing IT investment with Altos Sunlight HCI stack.

Low Latency

The new generation hypervisor design allows all processor cores works in parallel. No context switching overhead. This not only give Enterprise IT a huge improvement in throughputs, but also reduce the latency from millisecond in traditional HCI stack down to microsecond for specific database applications.

Good IOPS for Splunk

Thanks to the improvement in IOPS and increased memory bandwidth, server requirement now can be reduced. This represent not just a basic infrastructure saving, but more data can be processed more quickly – improving the user experience when generating reports.

A Completed Software Defined Infrastructure

Sunlight HCI Stack is consisting of NexVisor coupled with new software defined storage and networking components, all optimized for the latest advances in storage and networking technology, such as NVMe and 100G networking, with two key design principles: performance and simplicity.
