The platform your customers can depend on for even their most critical and complex multi-tier applications.
Xterity Cloud Services are built on enterprise-class servers, SAN fibre-channel storage, high-end core networking technologies and proven converged infrastructure software. Xterity is hosted in secure, redundant Tier 3 data centers. The computing infrastructure contains multiple paths and redundant connections to network and SAN, and enables resources (memory and processing) to be deployed quickly and easily for rapid platform expansion.
Xterity provides integrated high availability (HA) failover and resilience, as well as disaster recovery services. High-availability is provided at both the virtualization layer (HA cluster) and the hardware layer.
With Xterity there is also no need for expensive clustering software or additional server, hypervisor or application licenses for the failover server. This is ideal in a database environment, for example, with a database running on physical dedicated blades and virtual machines as public-facing Web servers all on Xterity’s IaaS HA enterprise network.
The Xterity Cloud is built on the award-winning Egenera Cloud Suite (ECS) platform. ECS works by abstracting IT infrastructure and presenting that infrastructure in a digital service catalog. This catalog contains all the components of the data center—physical servers, virtual servers, storage, switches, firewalls, hypervisors, operating systems, applications, back up services, and public cloud resources.
ECS users leverage the catalog and the associated design palette to literally drag, drop and connect all the components of the desired IT service. Complete application environments can be built with the ECS templating capability. Users can also easily configure their services with high availability and disaster recovery options to dial in the required availability levels.
Once the design is complete, these IT environments can be deployed with the click of a mouse. ECS includes real-time pricing and quote generation, so users can also see what the price is as they build the desired service.
Built for Business
Egenera Cloud Suite has specific advantages for channel partners, including those with a multi-tier channel business model who sell through other distributors and resellers. The integrated business functions span front end pricing and billing to back end monitoring, management and support:
ECS’s real-time pricing and quote generation includes easily configurable channel partner/reseller and end-user management of cost, sell price and margin. Pricing to clients or users can be displayed instantly as configurations are built or changed, while cost and margin data for resellers enables transparent margin control.
ECS automatically tracks usage and its granular usage-based billing lets you offer annual, monthly or even hourly based-billing. It can generate customized invoices with full client account identification, listing each component of the clients service, per day changes of resources, sales tax rates, payment terms and currency type.
ECS automates the licensing and service level agreement process. It features the automatic display and client acceptance of master service agreements, terms and conditions, service level agreements and sales order forms.This lowers administration costs while speeding up the sales cycle for service providers and resellers
