Sunlight Infrastructure Manager (SIM) Dashboard

Sunlight Infrastructure Manager (SIM) Dashboard

By: Latest Version: 4.0.0

Product Overview

Sunlight NexVisor is a high performance hypervisor that provides near bare-metal performance for your most demanding workloads - such as machine learning, AI, Big Data, Analytics and transactional databases.

It's easy to install Sunlight in just a few steps:

  1. Install the Sunlight Infrastructure Manager from this page (see the 'AWS deployment guide' linked below for a short video walkthrough)
  2. Use the Sunlight Infrastructure Manger to spin up your Sunlight NexVisor cluster

Sunlight NexVisor runs on AWS .metal instances and removes the limitations of native EC2 instances - such as the 80k IOPS limit per instance - instead Sunlight instances can access over 1 Million IOPS each. This removes the need to over-provision compute just to get high IOPS.

Sunlight is a hyper converged stack, so includes fully integrated software defined storage and networking.

Sunlight software defined storage turns the physical NVMe drives on supported .metal instances into a super-fast redundant and resilient pool of storage - replacing the need for expensive provisioned IOPS (PIOPS).

Sunlight software defined networking contains extensive AWS support. Bandwidth from AWS elastic network NICs can be seamlessly aggregated into a single channel - making it easy to access the full bandwidth available. Direct assigned AWS IP addresses can be accessed from a VM. Encapsulation technology creates virtual private networks across a cluster on-demand with internal IP addressing schema.

This free AMI provides a Sunlight Dashboard - which is required to create Sunlight NexVisor clusters within AWS (using .metal instances). Note that Sunlight NexVisor instances created through the Sunlight Dashboard are chargeable.
