The founder of Hyperconvergence

The age of monolithic scale-up systems is coming to an end. As applications span multiple hosts and multiple datacenters, the underlying infrastructure needs to the redesigned. Building large-scale distributed systems right is a notoriously tough challenge. The key challenge in building distributed systems is to follow the Sacred Scale-out Principle:“Resources needed in any node should be proportional to the size of that node and not to the size of the cluster.”

It implies that as we add more nodes to a cluster, the services running on the existing nodes should not see an increase of burden on their resources. Responsibility, therefore, should inherently be distributed and the new nodes added to a cluster should proportionately contribute to all the existing services in the cluster.In other words, there cannot be a master node that keeps track of all data or all metadata in any cluster. As the cluster grows it would hit its scale up limits. No single node knows everything, but as an aggregate the cluster knows everything.

Enabling Application Mobility

The Acropolis App Mobility Fabric (AMF) is a core set of technologies that free applications from getting locked into any infrastructure platform and allow applications and data to move freely between on-premise environments and public clouds. This mobility allows IT leaders to choose when and how they will use on-premise infrastructure and public cloud services, based on business needs.

Intelligence in Software       

100% software-defined with no reliance on special purpose hardware for resilience, performance and availability. Allowing for new capabilities without hardware upgrades

Distributed Everything

All data, metadata and operations are distributed across the entire cluster, eliminating performance bottlenecks and enabling predictable scalability without limits

Self-Healing System

Designed to tolerate component failures through fault isolation and automatic recovery without bringing down the overall system.

Automation & Analytics

Extensive automation and rich system-wide monitoring for data-driven efficiency, combined with REST-based programmatic interfaces for integration with datacenter management tools.
