Romanian startup Syneto has launched a hyper-converged infrastructure equipment aimed toward small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), the Hyperseries 2100, which affords in-built catastrophe restoration and capability for as much as 15 VMware digital machines (VMs).

Syneto is aiming the 2100 on the SME hyper-converged market with a product that prices round €5,000.

Two nodes of 1U every is the utmost configuration. The first and secondary (disaster recovery) nodes use Eight-core Intel central processing items (CPUs) with 4TB of uncooked disk capability and 40GB of flash storage write acceleration cache.

Community connectivity is 1Gbps Ethernet with 10Gbps as an possibility.

VMware is the one obtainable hypervisor (for now, see under) and the 2100 is slated to deal with from 4 massive VMs as much as round 15 small ones.

Many hyper-converged programs scale manner past two nodes, however Syneto took the choice to stay at two to swimsuit the supposed market, stated advertising and marketing vice-president Dragos Chioran.

“It’s a most of two nodes as a result of the businesses we’ve got focused don’t want extra,” he stated. “Additionally, there may be the technical consideration. Massive distributed programs don’t work nicely on restricted nodes, otherwise you want many nodes to ship efficiency.”

Chioran stated Syneto is aiming to hit a spot between the low-end pricing of software-defined hyper-converged products equivalent to Atlantis, Starwind and Datacore, and enterprise-targeted from the likes of Nutanix and Simplivity.

Syneto – whose operating system is predicated on a model of Solaris – solely affords VMware virtualisation at current, however plans so as to add “a number of hypervisors” equivalent to Hyper-V and kernel-based virtual machine (OkVM) by mid-2018, stated Chioran.

A key promoting level is built-in catastrophe restoration with instantaneous restoration of recordsdata, functions and digital machines, or 10-minute restoration of the complete catastrophe restoration node.

The Syneto Controller VM supplies storage-level snapshots and asynchronous replication between nodes.

Earlier this yr, Syneto launched its Hyperseries 3000 hyper-converged , which is 2U and supplies flash and hybrid flash capability for as much as round 100 digital machines.
