vStack is a hyper-converged platform
to build fully managed enterprise-level virtual datacenter
based on superior Open Source technologies.
vStack has been started in 2018 as a venture project sponsored by ITGV fund.
The project has been involved in one
of ITGLOBAL.COM B2C cloud projects
named — serverspace.io.
vStack has been deployed at 2 datacenters
as an alternative to VMware™® backend
for serverspace.io cloud provider.
The project goals are to develop own product series such as hyperconverged platform, storage platform, aiming to be an alternative to existing enterprise storage and virtualization solutions as well as hyper-converged platforms.
The key point of initial goals had been inspired by scale-out software architecture model, needless to expensive multi-tier fault tolerance mechanisms for a single cell, caused to expensive cell configuration. It often has no sense to use expensive enterprise-grade high availability solutions as a platform for scale-out software base. Lack of hardware vendor lock, thin-layered implementation is more important for scale-out solutions platform.
The project goals were never a competition to enterprise-grade solutions, being developed for years and decades by hundreds of developers and engineers. Mature enterprise products have insane complexity today, preventing a customer from fast move in, while we do our best to be simple.
Technological advance is the base of evolution, while a flashy novelty is not.
They are hard to implement, but they lead to appreciable excellence.
All of above is nothing but slogans without The Team, capable to incarnate unbelievable ideas.
