IPBRICK Clould Computing platform running on Cisco UCS

As you may know I deploy and design computing platforms and the associated network architecture using Cisco UCS. It is a virtualisation powerhouse to put it into a few words as possible. The platform enables what is called stateless computing.  You can purchase UCS in bundles which provide you with storage, network , compute resources and a virtualisation platform such as VMware

For this install the IPBRICK.4CC (Cloud Computing) platform was installed on a Cisco UCS platform using EMC VNX SAN Storage. IPBRICK.4CC provides the full range of unified computing and security. Using this platform allow you to create multi-tenant environments and using the built in Billing application to invoice your customers for resources used.

Significant costs saving can be made in Virtualisation Licensing and associated operating systems licences by utilising this platform. Cisco UCS is a major investment for any enterprise, however with strategic use of IPBRICK products you will be well placed in reducing your acquisition costs as well as operating costs.

I will be investingating  OpenStack in the near future to see what beneifts can be released from this API

    All the versions of IPBrick are the same actually the same operating system. The designations of .IC, .SOHO, I all relate to the roles that they play.

    The SOHO version is for small work-groups without the need for Multiple DNS Zones, Layer 3 Routing and other Master/Slave configurations.
    This means the SOHO version will not involve itself in any of the Master/Slave architecture.
