OS-Easy server virtualization platform (OS-Easy vServer) is a server virtualization and management software.

Adopt virtualization technology to run multiple server operating systems to make all servers being managed in one platform, which achieves the virtualization of computing, storage and network resources to save hardware investment and management cost. 

Manage and dispatch all virtual machines through a unified WEB based interface to improve hardware utilization rate. 

It assists IT organizations to build efficient, safe and stable cloud data center.

Product Components

• Compute node

Deploy KVM-based virtual machine technology on physical servers to provide computing resources.

Virtualization technology separates software (operating systems and applications) and hardware.

It no longer depends on the hardware, makes it possible to create multiple virtual machines in one server, each virtual machine is independent to each other for installing operating system and applications to provide external independent service.

• Console node

Console in data center runs core services. It provides a single GUI entrance (virtualization management platform) for IT administrators to remotely manage resource pools, servers, virtual machines, storage, network and other. components.

Management platform

Statistic the use of all server CPU, memory, storage, and other resources, summarize all data center servers, virtual machines, storage, networking and other resources information.

It provides data center resources pool including servers, virtual machines, snapshots, applications, image, storage, network configuration (VLAN, virtual machine switch, NAT, etc.).

Netwerk topology

Dynamically display physical and virtual network secondary topology in data center, you can view detailed network configuration (IP, Network, VLAN, switches, etc.), network fault can be troubleshot from the topology at a glance.

WEB application monitor

Centralized monitor all WEB application screen, login with a link to the corresponding web interface, timely detect when the background service is failed, can also connect to the virtual machine console for maintenance.

Virtual machine console

Virtual machine console is likely desktop monitor, administrators can login the virtual machine desktop for mouse and keyboard operations.

Before and after virtualization

From the server hardware, data center space costs, electricity costs, human resource cost, integration services to reduce overall operational costs, the more servers and business running in data center, the more cost will be saved.

Compare itemsBefore virtualizationAfter virtualization
Server amount20 old servers, supporting 30 applications servers, virtualized to 48 virtual machines to support legacy systems running, and extended to more than 10 applications
Server costsReplace old server 20*5,000=100,000usd6*10,000=60,0000usd, saving 40,000usd
Resource utilization20-35% average utilization of resources20-35% average utilization of resources Integration of resources, to take full advantage of the old existing investments, resource utilization increased to 60%
Application deployment speedneed to purchase a new server when new application is on-line, install operating system, patches, install applications, configure services, security settings, deploy cycle is 3-5 daysPre-customized variety of operating systems, application templates and installation Wizard or cloned from other business, 30 minutes to complete the application on-line
Business ContinuityServer failure, downtime, business interruptionHardware failure automatically migrate virtual machines to other servers, business is still running
Data securityHardware failure resulting loss of business data, need to do redundancy backup for each server, system failures need to restore or reinstall the operating system manually

1. Business Data is Stored in shared storage far away with higher data security

2. Online Business snapshots, backup multiple service points, system failures immediately restored

MaintenanceComplex application assembly, deployment application, network configuration, tedious work, you need to troubleshoot problems on-site, 10 servers/1 administratorRemote centralized supervision data center, do not need to go to on-site, provide comprehensive data monitoring and alarm notification, 100 servers/1 administrator
Operation and maintenance costs

1. need to double floor space for servers

2. Increase air conditioning and refrigeration, electricity rising

3. Purchase of new maintenance fee

1. Save space and reduce power consumption

2. Extend equipment lifecycle, reduce repair costs.
