USS-HA™ Cluster  High-Availability HyperConverged Appliance


USS-HA™ is the ideal hyperconverged infrastructure solution to consolidate all your Server. Storage and Network into one easy to manage, fully redundant, highly available modular appliance with NO single point of failure. Embedded virtualization allows All the hardware (CPU, storage, network .., etc.), be utilized and distributed more effectively. This results in the great reduction in CAPex, Opex.

USS-HA flexibility replaces the “fixed hardware model” of the past with on-demand resource allocation (such as CPU, memory, storage, etc..) based on your application needs.

Embedded Hypervisor (ESXi or Hyper-V ) with integrated clustered SAN Storage (SCVM™) the ability to create  Virtual machines on each of two controllers ( 2 top unit in the picture).

The SCVM will provide the iSCSI-SAN with data services (Snapshot, Deduplication, Encryption, Mirroring, Cloud Connect, Thin provisioning ..,etc.). If any virtual machine on either Host controller fails then, the controller will host the virtual machine by By migrating using V-motion or live migration. The Data is stored in shared dual ports Storage array with dual active-active failover failback (the bottom unit in the picture) hardware RAID controller.
