NEW YORK and SAN FRANCISCO, May 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Hive-IO, a leading software-defined infrastructure solution, today announced its utility fabric appliance is now available for Intel NUC (Next Unit Computing) hardware designed to deliver enterprise value to the small to medium business markets.
This new release is optimized for the Intel NUC and incorporates all cloud component services including: hypervisor, network switch, connection broker, storage acceleration, inventory management, performance management and orchestration.
"The Hive-IO platform is a customer-inspired, future-ready infrastructure that redefines servers, storage and networking, and is designed to match expanded compute workloads, and frees them from outdated, proprietary approaches. Our vision is that Hive-IO will bring cloud computing to everyone. This release for the Intel NUC is a realization of that vision." – Kevin McNamara, CTO and Founder, Hive-IO
Hive-IO replaces expensive hardware equipment with inexpensive commodity equipment. Typically, customers spent upwards of $15,000 per server configuration in order to host VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure). For small to medium size initial deployments, the overhead costs made it inaccessible and unattractive to deploy. In contrast, a commodity NUC kit cost ranges from $400 to $1100 and can host from 4-15 virtual desktops.
Implementations completed on multiple customer premises highlight performance and density benefits. For example: the latest NUC Skull Canyon with 32G and 128G SDD is able to support 15 Windows 7 Guests with guaranteed 20,000 IOPs throughput per guest.
"This is the same technology used by large financial institutions. SMBs can now combine this superior level of performance with the Intel NUC to deliver the most cost-effective, easy-to-manage computing platform ever." – Joe Makoid, CEO and Founder, Hive-IO
