HybridCluster: Technology (Stack)

HybridCluster is the first enterprise hosting stack to combine distributed storage (SDS) and a network abstraction layer (SDN) specifically designed to deliver a Container-as-a-Service cloud for public or private applications, delivering a far smarter application-aware cloud with replication, resilience, scalability and CDP built in ? across data centers and regions delivering bare metal performance and utilizing cheap commodity hardware and network and local disk storage.

Let’s dig into what that means…

Network abstraction layer (AwesomeProxy)

AwesomeProxy turns a bunch of dumb servers into a true distributed system. By being application- and protocol-aware, AwesomeProxy allows you to send any request for any application running in a FlexContainer to any machine in the cluster.

Addressing then becomes a much simpler issue. Because HybridCluster has addressing built in at the SDN layer in a protocol-aware way, you can send any request to any machine in the cluster and it will be internally reverse-proxied to the correct backend for the application the request was intended for.

AwesomeProxy also integrates directly into our SiteJuggler orchestration and cluster management layer to pull of live migration of containers at the filesystem and protocol layer orders of magnitude more efficiently than vMotion that functions over unreliable high latency and low throughput network connections. And because AwesomeProxy handles addressing, you can move an application from one IP to another without any special networking.
