Sardina Systems, a UK developer and vendor of cloud management platform FishOS, is partnering with Circle B, a global provider of the full spectrum of OpenStack solutions and Europe’s first authorized channel partner for delivering OCP solutions. Together, the companies plan to accelerate enterprise adoption of OpenStack clouds by combining it with flexible Open Compute Project (OCP) hardware architecture and full rack integration.
By joining forces, Circle B and Sardina Systems are able to provide a more complete array of services and products to enterprise clients, as well as offer the combined OCP private cloud solution to the worldwide market.
Circle B and Sardina have worked together to create and validate a fully integrated cloud solution based on OpenStack and Kubernetes for building highly scalable and efficient enterprise clouds on OCP’s innovative IT architecture. Ceph storage may be added to the system fast and easily.
“The principles of OCP are based on sharing the best practices and experience inside the community. The open-source approach used by OCP results in many hardware solutions that successfully fit specific use cases and significantly optimize data center infrastructure costs, including energy consumption and hardware utilization rate,” said Kenneth Tan, Executive Director of Sardina Systems. “The OCP designs of IT equipment provided by Circle B use the lowest possible amount of energy. FishOS smart engines constantly monitor cloud system health avoiding overloading and interruptions; our solution manages cloud workload to save energy costs and raise the hardware utilization rate to 40%. Together with Circle B, we offer a perfect IT solution for the data centers and their customers that focus on sustainability goals, responsible digital transformation and TCO savings.”
OCP + OpenStack
The data center is experiencing a surge in demand for enterprise cloud management solutions that assist optimize energy usage and lower TCO while maintaining cloud security and scalability at a consistently high level, according to the companies. Sardina Systems and Circle B are collaborating to develop a full life-cycle cloud management software solution validated on best-in-class OCP hardware. These solutions will be supported by professionally managed services to promote open-source technologies, ‘OCP + OpenStack,’ and help enterprises build a tailored private cloud with efficient workload management tools.
Sardina Systems and Circle B have effectively created and optimized their “cutting-edge” technology in order to provide enterprise-ready, scalable cloud instances.
