OCS Distribution Company, one of the oldest and most experienced distributors in Russia, and Virtuozzo, a global provider of hyper-converged infrastructure and virtualization solutions, have announced a strategic partnership.
As part of the partnership, OCS will now offer Virtuozzo’s Hybrid Infrastructure solution.
This powerful platform of next-generation hyperconverged infrastructure combines data center components such as computing power, network orchestration, and data storage with all the management and monitoring components from a single console in the context of an integrated, flexible, and fully software-defined solution.
Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure covers all the typical use cases allowing customers to build their own public and private clouds while also consuming storage as a service (StaaS), cluster deployment (Kubernetes), load balancers.
The platform easily creates new virtual data centers and increases existing data center’s flexibility and performance, reducing the total cost of infrastructure ownership.
Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure consolidates resources, runs virtual machines, combines disks into clustered storage, and guarantees data and service recovery in the case of a single server or a complete data center failure.
Therefore, using Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure enables clients’ peace of mind in the event of failures in either the physical or virtual infrastructure.
