SYNNEX Corporation and Nebula Bring Turnkey Private Cloud Appliance to the Channel

SYNNEX 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 system.

“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)
