LOS ANGELES, May 27, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Supermicro and InMotion Hosting have recently released a new case study describing how InMotion Hosting built an on-demand private cloud solution on Supermicro hardware. The high density and consequent cost efficiencies offered by Supermicro MicroBlade servers enabled the successful implementation of OpenStack as a service concept for InMotion Hosting’s Flex Metal Cloud product.
“Supermicro believes in the power of OpenStack and, along with InMotion Hosting, wanted it to be easily accessible to smaller and medium IT teams,” he said Srini Bala |, senior director, Solution Technology, Supermicro. “This is possible thanks to our MicroBlade technology that offers high density and cost efficiency for a full-featured cloud computing experience that will enable OpenStack as a service. InMotion Hosting’s mission is to accelerate the deployment of Private cloud in less than 45 minutes is commendable and Supermicro is proud to support that. “
Traditionally, OpenStack has been used to power the business infrastructure and requires a significant investment of time and resources to develop and deploy. Therefore, it was difficult for smaller teams and organizations to take advantage of an OpenStack environment. InMotion Hosting, whose core philosophy revolves around open source technologies, faced this challenge and created an on-demand private cloud driven by OpenStack, Ceph, and innovative hardware that includes Supermicro MicroBlade servers.
With Supermicro’s MicroBlade technology, the Flex Metal Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platform can deploy OpenStack with a smaller physical footprint than ever before. Through resource tuning and service optimization, Flex Metal Cloud can adapt to a full deployment of OpenStack with three Supermicro MicroBlade sled server nodes. Flex Metal Cloud starts with these three servers as a hyper-converging cloud core and can easily scale to hundreds of servers, thousands of virtual machines, and storage petabytes. The core of the cloud can deploy in about 45 minutes and start below $ 600/ month. Additional calculation and storage can also be added in minutes.
Hyperconverged deployments of OpenStack in Supermicro MicroBlade technology allows InMotion Hosting to provide all the features and functionality of OpenStack and reduce the total cost of ownership of server hardware. This allows for a more affordable cloud for the end consumer. The MicroBlade MBI-6219B-T41N and MicroBlade MBI-6219M-2N feature a more efficient way to operate and use computing resources. The versatility of these servers also gives advantage to traditional server hardware architectures when it comes to optimizing power, cooling, data center space, and hardware utilization.
Powered by Supermicro’s MicroBlade and OpenStack architecture, Flex Metal Cloud offers a powerful alternative for cloud customers looking for the flexibility of public clouds and could benefit from a completely private cloud architecture with no long-term cost implications.
