Latest version of hypervisor from Microsoft - Hyper-V provides a reliable and efficient cloud solution between physical hardware and the operating system allowing multiple Cloud Servers to run on the physical hardware at the same time.
Windows Hyper-V Cloud Server offers capabilities of a dedicated server with the flexibility of being able to quickly add more resources, such as memory, CPU and Storage to match increasing demands. Availability and backup is also improved with the added advantage of Failover (switching) to Redundant Hardware.
Fiberax’s Cloud Data Center fully compliant with referenced IaaS architecture from Microsoft Corporation, which provides comprehensive picture of reliable and efficient Infrastructure as a Service environment.
Hyper-V Cloud Servers are superior to Virtual Private Servers (VPS) as each Cloud Server is isolated from other Cloud Servers with each having its own Dedicated Operating System, own Solid State Drive Storage, Guaranteed Processing Power, and Dedicated Memory allowing you to install your own Operating System and applications in the same way you would with a dedicated server. As a result you do not need to worry about having your hosted services overrun by another service on the same hardware.
Hyper-V Cloud Servers offer many advantages over traditional Dedicated Server Hosting, with improved availability and easier to scale as extra vCPU’s, Memory, and Storage Space can be added on the fly without long periods of downtime.
One of the biggest rewards over Dedicated Servers is the ability for Cloud Servers to be continuously replicated (copied) to Redundant Backup Nodes and be able to failover (switch) to Redundant Backup Nodes within the Cloud in the event of hardware failure, maintenance, or upgrades.
Hyper-V Cloud Servers can easily be moved between Hardware Nodes if there is a hardware fault or require more resources, such as extra CPU or memory, without interruption to services.
Arguably, the most important aspect of any cloud platform is the backup system. Physical equipment can be replaced; data cannot. With this in mind, we have architected the backup platform for our cloud using an innovative and unique backup solution leveraging CommVault software.
Microsoft Hyper-V provides capabilities and features that help consolidate servers effectively while making maximum use of resources. Through Hyper-V Network Virtualization, server configurations may be decoupled from network configurations to provide multiple virtual dedicated networks. This enables seamless communications among virtual machines, and migration across physical servers, while isolating these networks from one another, enhancing security. The end result allows virtualization of almost any workload in a cost-effective, resource optimal and scalable manner.
Fiberax’s Cloud Data Center has Cloud Servers hosted on Active Nodes. The design has two things in mind, performance and reliability to allow the quick provisioning of extra resources with no downtime and eliminate service outages during hardware failure or maintenance.
Hyper-V Cloud Servers can be moved between Hardware Nodes using Live Migration which allows Cloud Servers to be moved without any interruption to services.
