SAN DIEGO, June 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Rugged Cloud Inc. was founded to address the needs of converged infrastructure and cloud management platforms. The company develops purpose-built rugged servers and provides professional services to help analyze, design and deploy extremely reliable platforms for both Vmware® and Openstack® cloud management platforms.
"At Rugged Cloud we believe the underlying infrastructure should not fail. We have taken the concepts of system level hardening which the military uses to deploy information technology for the warfighter and applied those design principals to commercial-grade cloud management platforms. We are capable and proud to offer our systems with military grade hardware at commercial prices," stated Michael Cobb, Founder and CTO.
Converged Infrastructure flattens data center architectures, so that compute, networking and storage are abstracted from the CPUs, racks, cabling, controllers and switches. The operating systems are abstracted from the CPUs and a single point of management is added thus enabling software defined networking or SDN. While converged infrastructure solves many problems, there are situations when applications run out of memory. VM sprawl causes VM "stall" or the slowing down of the application as it has to cache out to very slow disk drives.
Rugged Cloud Inc. has developed a way to use very fast FlashSSD drives to augment existing servers' local memory with off-board or external systems to provide currently up to 72TB of "DDR-like" system level memory via high speed networks, thus reducing VM sprawl and stall. Additional benefits of Rugged Cloud solutions (depending on configuration) include: from 1.4M to 3M+ IOPS/sec starting @ 4K block size, full support of current Intel GEN 8 processors with support for future "Ivy Bridge" processors with little more than a CPU upgrade, and options for different levels of availability from 99.9% to 99.999% @ 55C operational temps within an 8G shock profile.
Rugged Cloud systems and services allow for increased IT infrastructure without worrying about power, heat, space and other constraints- a lofty goal of many datacenters within both the commercial and Department of Defense markets.
