GIG Cloud as a Service
The most important aspects of the GIG Cloud as a Service
GIG automatically deploys, manages and maintains full cloud services in the cloud location you select. We refer to each of these locations as G8 (because it Gener8s local cloud capacity). We do the heavy-lifting, you just select the location and provide the rack, power and networking.
Central Location Management
The GIG Meneja service allows owners of G8's to add new G8's in new locations, monitor health, manage network connectivity, manage access rights and determine which images get provided where and are usable by whom. One simple control panel to manage all locations you own.
High Performance Cloud
We pride ourselves to have created one of the most performant cloud solutions. Benchmarks have shown that we beat major public cloud performance consistently - both for IO, networking and compute.
Agile By Design
The GIG Cloud can be easily integrated in your agile development process and your CI/CD pipeline. We provide open API's, a maintained Terraform plug-in, a maintained Apache LibCloud plug-in, a CSI plug in for Kubernetes and a bunch of playbooks to deploy multi-site Kubernetes clusters.
Easy Migration, Backup & Disaster Recovery
We provide extensive tools to support migration from any virtualisation platfom or any cloud solutions towards GIG - and back. Our partnership with Rackware provides you with an option to do mass-migrations and deliver Disaster Recovery services.
Ready to Deliver Public Cloud Services
Each G8 can deliver public cloud services. Our Cloud-as-a-Service is fully multi-tenant and has the tools to meter and rate services per account, per VDC and per VM. This means service providers can deliver detailed bills to their customers and deliver pay-as-you-use pricing.
A private cloud with 200% TCO reduction
One of our clients doubted to refurbish their existing in-house IT, move to AWS Outposts or move all IT to an AWS cloud. This is how the 3 year TCO compared.
Capabilities in a nutshell
The GIG Cloud-as-a-Service delivers a highly competitive feature set. It allows you to start delivering complex cloud services instantaneously anywhere and anytime you want
We use cloud units to dimension and calculate the net-usable cloud capacity available to users. Cloud units are also used to measure the amount of cloud capacity used and are an easy way to bill your customers.
We have predefined hardware configurations to make it easy to install, manage and maintain the infrastructure. There are currently 6 different configurations. The *-C configs have twice the amount of physical CPU cores per Compute Unit and are hence more compute optimized.
Predefined hardware configurations
We have predefined and pre-tested our hardware configurations. This allows us to take away the burden of infrastructure management away from you and to deliver a fully tested and secured performance and user experience.
