A complete hyperconverged infrastructure platform

Sunlight is a complete converged infrastructure platform for commodity hardware consisting of:

  • The NexVisor hypervisor – built from the ground-up to support today’s high performance hardware technologies with almost zero overhead
  • Sunlight SDS – Distributed Software Defined Storage for easy scaling and low latency
  • Sunlight SDN – Software Defined Networking enabling creation of ethernet-based virtual private networks
  • The easy to use Sunlight Dashboard and API to configure, monitor and manage your virtual datacenter

Rock solid reliability

Ultimate control

Fast & Easy Implementation

Reduce TCO

Granular control of failover

Set failover policies at the VM and vCPU level in Sunlight with physical location awareness at the host, rack and zone level – preventing concentration risk for your key workloads.

Rock solid reliability

The Sunlight Dashboard provides a single, beautiful UI to configure and manage infrastructure, and access fine-grained reporting on performance from the datacentre down to individual component level.

Deploy in minutes on premise

Sunlight can be deployed in minutes without requiring an army of experts to set up and configure each component. With Sunlight, nodes can be booted from a thumb drive, autodiscovered, configured and added to a cluster through the Sunlight Dashboard.

Low the TCO of your application infrastructure

Sunlight provides the most cost-effective means to build a high performance infrastructure. Because high performance hardware performs like bare metal, hardware costs are kept to a minimum and licence costs for application software based on memory or CPU are minimised.

Embedded fault tolerance

Fault tolerance is embedded at the core of the Sunlight platform. VMs will failover to alternative nodes, Sunlight SDS storage will failover to redundant drives and Sunlight SDN networking will revert to a good path – all automatically in milliseconds based on policies you control.

Services Image

Minimise licence costs with precise execution control

Sunlight not only provides host and CPU affinity rules for resource groups, but with CPU pinning can provide a 100% guarantee that workloads will only run on specific physical cores. Audit reports can provide evidence of these facts for licence negotiations and audits.

Deploy in minutes in AWS

Sunlight-on-AWS bare metal hosts can be deployed on-demand and typically take 10 minutes to become available, compared to hours for a VMware-on-AWS host. All your favourite AWS templates can now be deployed through the Sunlight Dashboard on Sunlight VMs.

Reduce your datacenter footprint

Sunlight’s ability to get the most out of your high performance hardware means fewer server are required, reducing your overall hardware spend, datacenter footprint, maintenance and power costs.
