Hyper-Converged
Infrastructure (HCI)

Simplify your Datacenter operations with a modern Hyper-Converged Infrastructure. HCI eliminates dependency on proprietary hardware by virtualizing conventional (hardware-defined) systems with a 100% software-defined IT infrastructure.

A single, Hyper-Converged Infrastructure replaces individual servers, storage arrays and networks to yield an agile, flexible, and simplified datacenter, allowing your IT team to start small and scale with increasing demand through the addition of new nodes.

Since both the storage area network and underlying storage abstractions of an HCI are implemented virtually—through a software hypervisor—versus physically, with hardware, resource management may be federated across all instances of the infrastructure.

Anexinet’s HCI solutions provide two essential components: a Distributed Data Plane and a single Management Plane. The Distributed Data Plane delivers virtualization, networking, and storage services for guest applications (VM’s or container-based applications) across a cluster of nodes. The Management Plane encompasses the entire dataset, facilitating the administration of all HCI resources from a single view, eliminating the need for individual management solutions.

Composable
Infrastructure

As the foundation for private and hybrid cloud solutions, Composable infrastructure frees your compute, storage, and networking resources from their physical demands so they may be managed with software, via a web interface, making your data center resources as readily available, and as easily accessible, as your cloud services.

Unlike traditional infrastructure, which only increases the cost and complexity of your data center by requiring new physical servers along with custom storage and networking solutions to support additional applications, and more infrastructure silos to support their workloads.

By providing a fluid resource set, Composable Infrastructure meets the unique needs of any application, and eliminates the need for workload‐specific environments. It maximizes application performance, reducing underutilization and overprovisioning to enable your data center to be more agile and cost-effective.

Further, Composable Infrastructure lets your IT team provision on-premises infrastructure as quickly and easily as public cloud resource, by enabling them to maintain physical, virtual, and container-based workloads from within a single environment.

Big Data
Platforms

A Big Data Platform is an enterprise class IT platform that facilitates the development, deployment, and management of big data infrastructures and environments by combining the features and capabilities of big data applications and utilities into a single solution to reduce overall complexity while delivering on-premises and/or cloud-based solutions and services.

Today’s Big Data insights enable faster, smarter decision-making to enable organizations to provide a great digital experience for employees, customers, and end users. But yesterday’s data management technology simply isn’t capable of adequately scaling to accommodate Big Data. Enter, Big Data Platforms: a new product class that meets today’s scalability, performance, availability, and security requirements.

Big data platforms are a sea change in the way organizations capture, store, and process data, comprising an entire ecosystem of components capable of processing massive volumes of multi-structured data, from storage, servers, and databases to management, governance, administrative tools and BI data processing and analytic engines to support custom development, querying, and systems integration.

Storage

Storage Migration involves the migration of volume data from an old storage system to volumes in a new storage system without using a host, most commonly when replacing a storage system to take advantage of more efficient storage technologies. This often involves moving physical blocks of data from one tape or disk to another, usually via virtualization. The data format and content itself is not modified in the process.

Two methods of Storage Migration exist: offline and online. Offline migrations require that storage system operations be halted during the data migration while online migrations allow operations to continue as data is being migrated.

Offline Storage Migration

During an offline Storage Migration, the destination storage system views and copies data from the source storage system. While the migration of data by the storage system reduces the overall duration of the migration, business operations must be halted during the migration to prevent alterations to the data.

Online Storage Migration

During an Online Storage Migration, a business server may continue to read from/write to a destination storage system as data is migrated from the source system. While Online Storage Migration greatly reduces overall downtime, the simultaneous performance of business operations as the migration is underway results in a significant decrease in performance.

Private Cloud Deployment Icon

Private Cloud
Deployment

The Cloud gives your organization the flexibility to scale, enables faster deployments, and enhances security all while optimizing overall costs. Also referred to as an internal or corporate cloud, a Private Cloud comprises computing services accessible either online or via a private internal network.

Private Cloud computing offers businesses many of the benefits of a public cloud, including flexibility, self-service, and scalability, along with the control and customization available with an on-premises infrastructure. Further, company firewalls and internal hosting ensure greater security and privacy, preventing access to operations and sensitive data.

While an organization is responsible for the cost and accountability of managing its own private cloud, the expenses associated with staffing, management, and maintenance are the same as with traditional datacenter ownership.

The private cloud supports two cloud services models: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) , which provides infrastructure resources (e.g. compute, network, and storage) as a service, and Platform as a Service (PaaS), which enables application delivery. Further, private and public clouds may be combined to form a hybrid cloud, which lets businesses scale services and free-up space to the public cloud as demand spikes.

Container
Management

Software Containers include everything required for software to run (e.g. files and libraries) combined into a single deployable unit that won’t deplete the resources of the host operating system. Containers have risen in popularity as more enterprises opt for using DevOps to accelerate application development and deployment.

Container Management is the process of adding, replacing or orchestrate software containers, along with creating, deploying and scaling containers via container management software (e.g. Kubernetes). Container management also eases the burden of scheduling, networking, security, storage and monitoring. A container management platform optimizes efficiency while streamlining the delivery of containers while avoiding the need for complex system architectures.

Container Management is needed whenever an organization relies on containers to rapidly update and deploy applications since a large inventory of containers can quickly become too complex and arduous for an IT team to handle. Container Management software’s further eases the burden on developers by automatically managing app health, replication, load balancing, and hardware resource allocations, and application deployment to operating systems and the public cloud.

Security Icon

Security

Despite all the benefits, today’s new technologies (e.g. IoT, Public/Private Cloud, Mobility) come with a greater risk of exposure and attack. Once Anexinet has helped you enable your new, modern infrastructure, the next step is to ensure everything’s secure, from end-to-end. From an infrastructure standpoint, security is (and has always been) a key focus of everything we do. Cloud servers, routers, switches, and so much more all need to be secure in order to be effective.

Further, as with Disaster Recovery, an organizational risk management program must be put in place to connect people, process and technology and ward off threats at every technology layer. Our holistic approach to Risk Management, Infrastructure Security, Physical Security, and Managed Security, along with our dedication to providing a great digital experience, ensures no protection gaps are left behind, anywhere (i.e. no breaks in your audits, etc.).

Alternately, we offer your organization the opportunity to start the conversation with Anexinet by discussing your Security pain points prior to moving into a discussion of product or positioning. For instance, if you’re looking for a Privileged Access Management (PAM) Solution, our Security consultants will take a vendor-agnostic approach, working with you to identify your specific pain points and goals in order to determine your ideal security solution. Lastly, we setup a POC to verify the effectiveness of our proposed solution.

Oftentimes, the client may already have their mind set on a specific Security solution. But upon further exploration, our Security consultants find the proposed solution to be inadequate to resolve all of the client’s actual pain points while providing complete protection, end-to-end.
