Microsoft e Dell Lançam Solução para Private Cloud
Ontem a Microsoft anunciou oficialmente a disponibilização do produto CPS (Cloud Platform System) que são racks de servidores, storage e rede prontas com Windows Server 2012 R2, System Center e Windows Azure Pack: http://news.microsoft.com/2014/10/20/CloudDayPR/
Para detalhes técnicos de como a solução funciona, este post http://blogs.technet.com/b/windowsserver/archive/2014/10/20/unveiling-the-microsoft-cloud-platform-system-powered-by-dell.aspx?amp traz informações interessantes.
Basicamente é um rack empacotado com a solução pronta para ser utilizada, podendo chegar a 4 racks:
CPS is a pre-integrated, pre-deployed, Microsoft validated solution built on Dell hardware, Windows Server 2012 R2, System Center 2012 R2 and Windows Azure Pack. It combines the efficiency and agility of cloud computing, along with the increased control and customization achieved in virtualized, multi-tenant environments. CPS scales from a single rack to up to four racks and is optimized for Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS for Windows and Linux) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) style deployments.
Let’s take a closer look at CPS
At the hardware layer, a customer can deploy CPS in increments from one to four racks. Each rack has
- 512 cores across 32 servers (each with a dual socket Intel Ivy Bridge, E5-2650v2 CPU)
- 8 TB of RAM with 256 GB per server
- 282 TB of usable storage
- 1360 Gb/s of internal rack connectivity
- 560 Gb/s of inter-rack connectivity
- Up to 60 Gb/s connectivity to the external world
A single rack can support up to 2000 VM’s (2 vCPU, 1.75 GB RAM, and 50 GB disk). You can scale up to 8000 VM’s using a full stamp with four of these racks. Of course customers have the flexibility of choosing their VM dimensions, as we have seen with the private preview deployments with CPS.
