Cloud Solutions

AMAX CloudMax private cloud appliance solutions eliminate the associated complexity and excessive costs with traditional enterprise cloud deployments. The CloudMax on-premise, x86-based private cloud appliance is a complete platform that integrates hardware, storage, networking, virtualization, internal and external security, disaster recovery, and dynamic management solutions to create a private cloud environment. The CloudMax is designed specifically for enterprise environments, with diverse computing infrastructure requirements across virtual and physical machines, and supports various hypervisors and operating systems from a single end-to-end management platform.

VMware’s vCloud* Director is the software solution stack chosen in this reference architecture, as it builds upon proven, industry-wide acknowledged virtualization technology and enables for pooled IT resource allocation and consumption. This enables maximized efficiency without compromising service delivery, and simultaneously accelerates an organization’s transition to the cloud. vCloud* Director enables four key points: Accelerate end user time-to-market by enabling intelligent on-demand virtual machine provisioning. Permit rapid distribution and intelligent deployment of virtual application images. Decrease costs by consolidating infrastructure and delivering resources to internal organizations as configurable virtual datacenters. Ensure isolation and enforce control intelligently with policy-based user controls and VMware vShield technologies.

Data protection for mission critical applications is a vital component of a secure cloud environment and security, control and compliance are often the primary concerns preventing cloud adoption. VMware’s vShield* seeks to address these issues so that organizations can leverage the benefits of cloud computing without compromising how they manage security, control, or compliance. Key benefits include:

Adaptive Security – security that travels with VMs as they migrate from host to host.

Single Framework – ensures proper segmentation and trust zones are enforced for all application deployments.

Defeats Anti-Virus “Storms” – eliminates the need to install antivirus software on individual VMs, consolidating security.

Protect Applications – prevents network-based attacks with visibility and control over network communication between VMs.

AMAX’s advanced engineering expertise ensures complete system compatibility, reducing time and eliminating the risk in selecting independent hardware and software components. CloudMax is a complete platform that integrates hardware, storage, networking, virtualization, security, and dynamic management to create a self-service, secure private cloud environment.
