|By Business Wire
|May 12, 2014 01:00 PM EDT
Corporation (NYSE: SNX), a leading distributor of IT products and
solutions, announced it is the first distributor to offer the fully
integrated, big data turnkey private cloud appliance powered by Nebula
to the channel. The rack level appliance is a fully integrated private
cloud system engineered to deliver workloads for both Apache Cassandra
and MongoDB. Cloudwick
Labs has been selected to manage the software integration on behalf
of solution providers.
The new rack system includes industry-standard servers, the Nebula One
Cloud Controller, Apache Cassandra, and MongoDB, backed by SYNNEX’
powerful distribution model. This big data appliance enables an open and
elastic infrastructure to store and manage big data. As an open source
NoSQL database technology, Apache Cassandra provides multi-site
distributed computing of big data across multiple data centers, while
MongoDB is a cross-platform document-oriented open source database
“The ability for SYNNEX solution providers to offer solid private cloud
technologies to their enterprise customers is now even more accessible
with the addition of Nebula’s turn-key private cloud appliance and
Cloudwick’s software integration to our portfolio,” said Peter Larocque,
President, North America Distribution, SYNNEX Corporation. “With more
than half of enterprises prioritizing building private clouds through
the end of the year, it is important that SYNNEX helps our customers
find ways to capitalize on that wave.”
“Businesses rely on data to maintain a competitive edge and they need a
way to run new applications and workloads quickly, removing the
complexity that comes with a big data infrastructure,” said Gordon
Stitt, CEO at Nebula. “Handling massive amounts of data requires an
infrastructure that can scale out horizontally and respond quickly.
Nebula is excited to be working with SYNNEX and Cloudwick Labs to
deliver a turnkey, private cloud rack system powering Cassandra and
MongoDB big data workloads.”
“Cloudwick Labs tested the Nebula One Cloud Controller and found it to
be best-in-class for enterprise big data cloud management, security and
performance,” said Mani Chhabra, Cloudwick Chief Executive Officer. “Now
leading data center VARs and system integrators can offer Nebula's award
winning OpenStack cloud technology to the enterprise to transform
traditional bare metal infrastructure into powerful next generation
cloud datacenters powered by Nebula."
Solution providers can source three different models through SYNNEX,
with larger configurations available upon request:
Entry Level: 1x5 (Nebula One Controller + 5 servers)
Half Rack: 1x10 (Nebula One Controller + 10 servers)
Full Rack: 1x19 (Nebula One Controller + 19 servers)
