Solutions designed for small and medium enterprises
Unveiled in April 2016 at the Open Server Summit in Santa Clara, VSkyCube is ideal for businesses looking to increase scalability, agility and improve administration efficiency while managing costs. VSkyCube encompasses compute, networking and storage virtualisation technologies as a cost-effective means to implement the IT-in-a-box and Cloud-in-a-box concepts of system administration. VSkyCube is designed with a scale-out approach and offers a distributed storage system with advanced compute, storage and networking features that allow for a lower up-front investment and reduced total cost of ownership.
A secure cloud designed for small groups
Designed for consumers, the Apollo Personal Cloud appliance gives users and their circles or groups simple, full control over the storage and selective sharing of their digital content. It only takes minutes to set up Apollo and the user can access content anywhere via the Apollo Cloud App. Files, photos and videos can be easily and securely shared, giving users the peace of mind knowing their personal data is off the Web, safe and secure on their own personal cloud. Apollo will be available soon for purchase exclusively at Apple stores worldwide.
WORM storage solution
WORM (write once, read many) data storage technology is deployed by organisations such as government agencies, large enterprises or medical storage defined by HIPPA, requiring a secure way to safeguard data as part of their long-term storage solution. Promise will demonstrate a WORM storage solution with its Vess A-Series server storage and Vess R2000 external storage solution along with OliveTech’s WORM technology.
