Background

The Bunker’s Private VMware cloud platform is for companies that require their own dedicated hardware hypervisors, ensuring guaranteed compute, storage and network resources.

Have your infrastructure smartly designed by The Bunker’s experienced architects, and leave all patching, firmware and repairs to us, leaving you free to add the most value to your business.

The Bunker can also offer Veeam backups to a Private VMware cloud, both on and offsite, and you can benefit from our managed endpoint protection against exploits and malware, using Traps by PaloAlto. Additionally, advanced features of VMware’s private cloud technology can be utilised in the design, such as vSAN, NSX, DRS, HA, Storage vMotion and Storage IO control.

The Bunker’s Open Source private cloud is designed and built by our in-house Open Source engineers, using a robust cloud core “stack” that is centred around KVM, the widely adopted virtualisation solution for Linux, coupled with CEPH for resilient, scalable and performant software-defined storage. This core is then integrated with OpenNebula to provide lightweight and powerful private cloud capabilities to support a wide range of Linux and Windows workloads.

Utilising OpenNebula’s native cloud integration functionality, customers can choose to scale using Bunker-hosted hardware or to use public cloud infrastructure in a hybrid environment, leveraging platforms in the way that best suits their needs. Wrap this package with the most pro-actively secure operating system in the industry as the perimeter firewall and routing device and you have the ultra-secure Open Source private cloud.

A private cloud solution running on Hyper-V enables you run up to 1024 virtual machines on each physical server running in the data centre. With physical CPUs of 32 cores or greater fast becoming common place, it makes sense to consolidate different workloads with varied operating systems and configurations onto one or more host hypervisors.

Hyper-V comes as a built-in feature to Windows and is included with the host Windows licence. Typically if you run 13 or more VMs a Windows data centre licence is more cost effective, allowing you to run as many Windows VMs as you can fit onto the host without having to buy any extra Windows licences for each VM.

And now in Windows 2016, Microsoft have introduced other advances such as Storage Spaces Direct (S2D), which is also included in Data centre licensing. S2D allows for high speed/low latency, shared storage with redundancy using only local disks in each server eliminating the cost of expensive Storage Area Networks (SANs).
