In the drive to minimize cost, KALEAO has designed KMAX-EP, a hyperconverged integrated software and hardware platform, extremely compact and low power. KMAX-EP provides the full benefits of hyper convergence leveraging advanced software defined hardware and appliance level web-scale application delivery and management.
KMAX-EP solutions are compatible with the vast open source Linux-based software ecosystem available for the ARM platforms, while natively supporting Open Stack along with the additional richness of an industry standard application stores, like Ubuntu JuJu Charms.
Enterprise IT teams are under pressure to deliver more capabilities while saving money on operational expenses like space, power, and cooling. KALEAO’s KMAX-EP delivers those benefits, to turn the IT team into heroes.
At just 4U high, KMAX-EP offers compute, storage and networking so IT teams can modernize and consolidate resources while streamlining administration and management processes. There are no longer multiple tiers of separate network resources to manage and coordinate across business units or functions. Instead, system administrators use a single management interface to drive and configure all aspects of the KMAX-EP platform, whether using single chassis or scaled out to multiple cabinets.
Optimized hardware design along with software defined capabilities yields the best of both worlds. Processing speed only possible in hardware, low latency due to short distance between components, and flexibility from software defined operations.
KMAX-EP extends the KALEAO product portfolio specifically for the enterprise environment with a 4U chassis, 48 VDC power or internal AC power supply option, and rear-loading blades to simplify data center operations and workflows.
