|SynchroKnot Announces Its New Software Product - Virtual System on Chip (vSoC)
A New Genre in Technology - Decentralized Cloud Computing, Edge Computing, Data Center and IoT
Shanghai, China - SynchroKnot is announcing its newest software product - Virtual System on Chip (vSoC). The vSoC is an all-inclusive software product for the decentralization of cloud computing, edge computing, data center and IoT. Its all-inclusive, decentralizing capability makes it a complete alternative for VMware, OpenStack, Hyper-V, routers, switches and storage [SAN/NAS] all together. The new genre in technology begins with the vSoC, which brings about a paradigm shift in the way cloud computing, edge computing, data center and IoT is perceived and implemented in practice today.
Today cloud computing, data centers and IoT are based on a standard, centralized architecture, which means they are centralized in terms of location, but disparate in terms of hardware and software. For example, people may have their cloud computing infrastructure located at a centralized data center, which is made of up disparate hardware, namely servers, redundant switches & routers, storage [SAN/NAS] and load balancers, etc., and running the standard virtualization software like OpenStack, VMware, Hyper-V and so on. This is the standard architecture accepted and used globally in building private and public cloud computing infrastructure today.
Individuals and organizations who deploy, manage, operate and support this type of cloud infrastructure are aware of the numerous difficulties and complexities involved. Apart from these difficulties, the frequent increase in license costs of the software is a major concern globally.
So, in a sense, this standard and expensive cloud computing architecture and business model has locked itself into a quicksand with no easy exit, unless a new genre in technology addresses the following concerns:
- increasing complexity of the deployed base
- poor scalability
- inefficient security
- cumbersome manageability
- high maintenance costs
- evident vendor lock-ins with frequently increasing license costs
- maintaining of multi-tiered separate teams/organizations to operate and support
- time-consuming fixes to problems
- coordination with multiple vendors
The new genre in technology must have software and hardware components that are stable, trusted and used extensively globally to have proven their efficiency in their respective parts. So now people have a situation where they need something drastically new, yet that same "new" has to be trusted, stable and proven at the same time. This is a situation which is difficult-to-almost impossible to match.
In addition, the learning curve of adapting this new genre should be minimal, its deployment fast and the ability to transition should have a minimal turn-around time with little or no project management. The ability to scale and reliably manage the infrastructure is also a pivotal point. The modern-day security breaches, as experienced, are also a high concern.
Another primary concern is the cost factor. In other words, having a lower cost should not mean having to compromise with fewer features with higher complexity and higher operating and managing costs. It should far transcend the idea of "you get what you pay for", and bring about a unique total value proposition that satiates the demand of small and medium businesses, enterprise and the government sectors all at once. These points are difficult to attain in the real-world, and so far we may not have been acquainted with a suitable product or solution, never mind a "genre".
This is where the vSoC, addresses some of the contradictions and paradoxes mentioned above.
The vSoC can be considered as a complete alternative to centralized cloud infrastructure, hardware and software. So for example, if people currently use any of the three disparate components of the centralized cloud infrastructure mentioned below, then it is very simple to use vSoC instead.
1. Physical servers to run server and desktop virtualization software, like OpenStack, VMware, Hyper-V, RHEV, Xen, etc.
2. Redundant physical and virtual routers and switches from Cisco, Juniper, etc.
3. Physical and virtual SAN/NAS, distributed file and block storage [Netapp, Dell, Ceph, Gluster, etc.]
So how would it be possible to transition from three disparate hardware and software infrastructures spanning different market segments onto a single, all-inclusive and all-exclusive virtual system on chip product which does everything?
The short answer is to install vSoC in less than 15 seconds onto a SynchroKnot-certified system on chip [SoC] and connect them to each other directly. It is as simple as that, as the SynchroKnot software does everything for its users.
The SynchroKnot-certified SoCs are inexpensive and readily available, and come in a very small form factor of only 4x4 inches, with a very high tolerance for heat and vibration. They have up to 16 threads running at ~4.2 GHz, with newer models expected to be released in the near future.
Customers purchase the SoCs from the SynchroKnot-authorized manufacturer directly, stack them up with spacers and pillars, and install SynchroKnot vSoC on the supported Debian or Debian-variant of the Linux operating system.
The small form factor means they can be kept anywhere, plus you can connect locally or globally-dispersed vSoC+SoCs via standard VPN. People can manage all of the vSoCs from any of the vSoCs [locally/globally] if desired, in real time, and get a single universal view as if they were being managed from the same local location.
It is possible to connect the vSoCs to each other without using redundant physical and virtual switches and routers because the vSoC comes with an actual, fully-automatic [no configuration needed], high-performance switch, which is self-healing and mission-critical, with the ability of providing multi-path [layer 2] redundancy.
In the rapidly slowing global economy, keeping pace with business goals is getting increasingly challenging. With very few options available in the existing cloud computing, data center and IoT spheres, conjuring a positive trend aimed at rejuvenating the micro- and macro-economic dynamics of your organization is difficult.
Virtual System on Chip, the new genre of Decentralized Cloud Computing, Edge Computing, Data Center and IoT could be the realistic and practical solution available right now.
