Easing the Strain of Virtual Machines
Virtual machines (VMs) are a haven to those who need to run a completely separate operation system than the one natural to their computer (e.g. Mac owner needing to run Windows).
Unfortunately, running a VM does not come without drawbacks, including putting a massive strain on the host computer.
Nimboxx, a provider of Hyper-converged Infrastructure (HCI) solutions, has announced a new batch of updates to its private cloud-in-a-box solution as well as a new storage and memory platform.
Through the new updates, Nimboxx’s cloud solution, dubbed MeshOS, now enables users to configure up to 10 VM bridges for secure VM-to-VM communication. Other enhancements to MeshOS include bulk actions for VM as well as enhanced user management functions. In addition to the added functionality of MeshOS, Nimboxx has introduced a new storage and memory platform called AU-120x. Built using the same hardware as its AU-110x, the new platform boasts 14.4 terabytes of storage capacity and the ability to scale to hundreds of nodes.
“This latest MeshOS release, and introduction of the AU-120x, builds on our mission to deliver solutions that are easy to use and grow rather than requiring replacement when customer business needs evolve,” said Andy Salo, vice president of product management at Nimboxx. “By adding increased resilience, performance and capacity, we’re helping customers future-proof their infrastructure, a single node at a time.”
