Which solutions are used by Oktawave in virtualization layer?
Posted by Pomoc Oktawave on 09.01.2013 13:21

While working on the Oktawave platform architecture assumptions we made a decision that the entire solution will be agnostic in the terms of hypervisors. The second decision was the choice of VMware vSphere as the virtualization controller to be served first.

In addition to the known advantages of using vShpere there are few other - Oktawave specific - benefits:

  • availability of comprehensive hypervisor API, which allows a relatively quick integration time,
  • stability and flexible configuration, confirmed by many years of presence on the market, 
  • commercial support,
  • flexible billing model,
  • high level of security,
  • know-how that we have gathered during the nearly 5-years of working with VMware, preceding the start of the Oktawave project.

As a result, on one hand we received the robust virtualization environment and on the other hand, broad and unlimited possibilities of implementing such functionalities, which were not and are not used to this point anywhere in the world.

Thus, the burden of managing and configuring of the infrastructure was shifted to our own application environment, creating unique mechanisms of vertical and horizontal auto scaling, very flexible billing model, flexible and comprehensive API and a broad portfolio of services accessible through a single user interface.
