OnApp delivers to you the original meaning of Cloud by providing you with a platform that provides resources on demand, it can scale easily using on-premises and distributed infrastructures and it works as metered services to measure and distribute costs across departments.
Running your own Cloud is now as simple as renting somebody else’s infrastructure with the advantage that you are in control of your data while at the same time you are lowering your costs.
All the computing, networking and storage resources are managed and monitored from a single web interface ready to be assigned to your workloads.
With OnApp you are not constrained by your local infrastructure like with your old virtualisation environment.
OnApp helps you creating Hybrid Cloud configurations using your office locations and data centres, you can federate with OnApp service providers around the world to distribute your Internet facing services wherever you need them to be and you can manage your existing AWS instances from a single pane of glass.
OnApp takes care of managing local and remote compute, storage and network resources for you providing you with a truly scalable and easy to use hyperconverged platform.
Unlike other HCI platforms, OnApp, isn’t limited to a few standardised appliances, you can choose the nodes configurations that best suits your compute and storage needs, you can even hot plug/swap drives at any time if you need more storage without replacing the nodes.
OnApp is not a rip and replace platform.
If you still have a VMWare infrastructure you can integrate it with OnApp and even manage it from OnApp’s control panel while you migrate workloads on your new Private Cloud.
You can move virtual machines fairly easily by converting them in OVA format and importing them into your OnApp Cloud.
