Enterprise-Scale Cloud Management Platform
Qstack is a totally comprehensive cloud management platform offering enterprises the ability to implement and manage large scale cloud environments
Unified Infrastructure Management
Qstack’s unified and easy-to-use user interface allows enterprises to securely and efficiently manage their entire data center portfolio – including multiple public and private clouds located in different geo-zones – all directly from the same self-service portal. Qstack supports provisioning of multi-tenanted bare metal servers, virtual machines, containers and applications, including support of existing networking infrastructure topology. This provides enterprises with the opportunity to manage any workload from a single-pane of glass. Qstack also supports live migration between hypervisor hosts and environments, preventing costly downtime due to host upgrades or potential host failure.
It’s a leading solution in the fast-paced IT ecosystem and supports the development of container and application orchestration with its built-in Kubernetes container, cluster engine, and advanced user interface.
No Scaling Limitations
Qstack is highly scalable and has no scaling limitations. With Qstack thousands of physical servers can be provisioned in geographically distributed data centers and managed from its self-service portal or API tools. Its native hybrid capabilities enable enterprises to expand resource availability into public clouds like AWS, Azure or any EC2-compliant environment without compromising the private infrastructure. Enterprises can implement a hybrid cloud strategy composed of multiple cloud environments as Qstack can manage distributed workloads from a single management server.
No Vendor Lock-in
Qstack is hypervisor-agnostic and supports the three most popular hypervisors in the market, VMware vSphere, KVM, and Microsoft Hyper-V allowing for a multi-hypervisor setup on a single management host. This enables enterprises to leverage existing hypervisor platforms and associated licenses when implementing Qstack. Additionally, enterprises can mix hypervisor platforms running in development, testing and staging environments to reduce license fees.
Qstack is also hardware-agnostic enabled to run on any modern x86 and x64 infrastructure. Qstack can be deployed on a dedicated server or inside a virtual machine, thus enabling enterprises to leverage existing infrastructure and licensing investments, or help phase out ineffective solutions.
Qstack is designed and developed according to the highest security standards as used by enterprises and organizations in highly regulated industries, such as financial services and healthcare. Qstack’s security architecture assures that each component is secure and all interactions are authenticated and authorized. Qstack uses mutual Transport Layer Security (mTLS) for communication between Qstack components and digital certificates for internal authorization. All external and internal UI and API endpoints are operated over HTTPS TLS 1.2 using only strong, modern ciphers. Sensitive data confidentiality is ensured with industry standard encryption, using AES-256 in CBC mode and PBKDF2 for key derivation. Confidentiality of multi-tenant Qstack environments is enforced through VLAN isolation at the network layer, and with configurable dedication of hosts at the hypervisor and storage layer, ensuring full yet flexible segregation between tenants when needed.
Resource Allocation and Usage Metering
Qstack provides a detailed overview of allocated and available resources. Based on hierarchical user permission levels, resource quota limitations can be set and adjusted per department, project, and individual users. Within the administration interface, enhanced permissions can be granted to users and administrators. Qstack enables a user’s single-sign-on (SAML 2.0 SSO) supporting LDAP, Active Directory and multiple other Identity Providers.
Qstack has built-in chargeback metering features, allowing for the gathering, monitoring, and exporting of detailed usage data and cost parameters. Qstack supports any level from department to project, user, or a specific resource into existing financial accounting systems, ensuring accountability and IT resource transparency.
