In cloud environments, meeting customer performance and availability needs is everything.

In HyperCloud, the purpose-built, fully integrated architecture puts you a step ahead. As do the built-in features and capabilities for streamlining observability, backup and recovery, and service management.

Third party applications can integrate with HyperCloud using the well-documented API.  We even supply bindings for Ruby, Python, Go, and Java to accelerate application integration development without having to implement the API yourself.



HyperCloud’s unified control plane not only makes it easier to manage cloud environments, it supports easier monitoring of the cloud so you can stay vigilant about potential issues that could impact users or workloads.

“Easy” buttons for key monitoring tools put you on the fast track for visualizing data and  composing queries and extracting useful workload specific insights based on cluster-wide metrics. For example, you can deploy monitoring tools and time-series databases, such as Prometheus, InfluxDB, and Graphite, or observability dashboards, such as Grafana, Zabbix, Datadog, or PowerBI, with a few clicks.

A built-in alerting platform in HyperCloud keeps track of when things go wrong anywhere in the fleet and lets you know.

Log aggregation:
Minimise ongoing impacts to service delivery by getting to the bottom of major issues faster. Because the HyperCloud platform is built as an appliance, the logs for all the services are centralised. You can easily deploy tools such as Splunk or Elasticsearch from the HyperCloud marketplace and aggregate and introspect important service logs from across the cloud.

Backup and recovery

HyperCloud uses an array of backup and recovery approaches to maximise resiliency. Local, remote, and archive options are available. Local backups utilise the local copy-on-write (CoW) snapshot capabilities of the underlying storage platform, while remote backups support pushing those snapshots to a remote cluster. Cloning and snapshotting block devices and VMs at regular intervals not only enables operators to recover or replicate services from snapshots in seconds, but it requires little to no additional storage.  HyperCloud exports archive backups intended for long-term retention to any S3-compatible bucket.  Scheduling automated backups in the control plane in line with RTOs and RPOs takes minimal time and effort. All three methodologies are supported for all block storage allocated to virtual machines in the cluster (scheduling and retention are also supported).

Inherent resiliency everywhere
HyperCloud’s highly resilient underlying storage platform employs triple replication by default. The replicas not only enable you to ensure data integrity in case of failed media, but you can also hash each replica to ensure consistency in case of partially failed or corrupted media. HyperCloud resolves cost issues with replication at scale through erasure coding.

Triple replication and more advanced replication policies ensure data integrity

Service management
With HyperCloud, operators, tenants, and developers can build rich, multi-tiered services that can be used to deliver resilient cloud services at scale. Developer-focused workflows, such as CI/CD and TDD, are extremely easy to implement in HyperCloud. Development teams can rely on a service catalogue of automated data and infrastructure services that are available through a single interface in HyperCloud to deploy virtualised and containerised workloads across multiple federated on-premises zones and public clouds. In addition, the HyperCloud API is supported by existing infrastructure as code tools, such as Terraform, Salt, Chef, Ansible, and Puppet. HyperCloud provides:

  • A verifiably secure testing environment
  • The ability to better control costs through easy access to and time sharing of development environment resources
  • More granular control of bare metal nodes and performance than other public and private clouds can deliver
  • Quick access to GitLab, Ansible Tower and a host of other developer tools through the HyperCloud marketplace
