A CMP Tailored for Service Providers
Looking for a comprehensive and feature-rich cloud management platform to create and offer your own IaaS? With Qstack, service providers can deploy a fully automated and branded portal that offers geographic flexibility and scalability with hosted private and public cloud capabilities.
A RANGE OF SPECIFIC CLOUD SERVICES FOR SERVICE PROVIDERS
With Qstack, service providers can build and sell public cloud services, provide sub-providers with their own managed and branded UI or offer a managed, virtual or hosted private cloud to enterprise customers. Service providers can offer tiered service levels by enabling resources running on industry leading hypervisor infrastructure, like VMware, Hyper-V and KVM, as well as bare metal provisioning.
Scalability and Multiple Locations
Qstack is a highly scalable cloud management platform. Deploying Qstack in different data centers allows service providers to offer customers access to multiple availability regions. This gives customers resource availability in multiple locations and service providers benefit from increased service levels. With Qstack, different levels of tiered-storage offerings can be implemented, including all-Flash storage or more economical HDD storage. Qstack also supports several object storage platforms.
Industry Standard API Support
By supporting the EC2 API, customers can take advantage of the development and automation tools they already know from AWS. There is no need to learn or adapt to new tools or API’s. With Qstack you can connect multiple location or data centers together and manage the workload on each one of them via the EC2 API or via the award winning UI. Qstack’s application layer is based on Google’s Kubernetes and exposes the Kubernetes API in a secure manner.
Secure Isolation of Customer Accounts
Qstack can integrate with any traditional network topology. The management traffic can be fully isolated from the production environment and guest traffic through either separate physical network interfaces or tagged/untagged VLAN segregation. In its advanced networking implementation state, Qstack provides additional network separation through VLANs isolation and customer-controllable software firewalls per account and project.
Chargeback and Billing
Qstack logs all usage data and provides a complete overview of resource utilization and usage breakdown, complete with chargeback features that can easily be exported for different ERP systems such as SAP and Microsoft Dynamics. Supported formats are CSV and JSON. Billing information can also be fetched directly via API.
Qstack offers ready-to-use Linux® templates for virtual machine and bare metal instances, with additional templates available by special request. All major common virtualizable operating systems are supported, and users can create their own templates from an instance or a snapshot for reusability. A Qstack administrator can create, configure and upload templates themselves and make available to other users. ISO files can be used to spin up instances or be attached to instances. Templates and ISOs can also be shared among users within the same isolated company account.
TAILOR YOUR CLOUD TO MEET CUSTOMER NEEDS
Customizable Service Offerings
Through Qstack’s customizable service offering capabilities, service providers can easily create different compute and storage tiers that fit customer needs. They can also allocate resources in alignment with customer requirements and maximize the resource utilization levels for better ROI.
Configurable and Branded UI
Qstack’s web control panel can be configured and branded to fit the service provider’s branding policies. Everything can be managed from the UI, from system configuration to instance root access. The UI is HTML5 compliant and has integrated client-less remote desktop gateway, supporting standard protocols like VNC, RDP and SSH.
Hosted Private Cloud
Service providers can leverage Qstack to deploy a single-tenant, dedicated, hosted private clouds for enterprise customers. Providing increased agility and customization options, enhanced security and higher performance levels, compared to public cloud services. Qstack addresses the security and high-performance workload demands required for hosted private cloud deployments.
Virtual Private Cloud
Enterprise customers may require a VPC due to compliancy restrictions where they might not be allowed to run their workloads on shared resources in a multi-tenant environment. Service providers can extend their public cloud offering by setting up fully brandable VPC’s. The VPC offering can be on totally isolated resources (compute and storage) and customers can bring their own IP range.
Exploring Usage Design in Qstack
Usage is a service within Qstack that logs and monitors user resource consumption over a period of time. Administrators have access to usage reports for all users, projects, and departments under their authority and can generate and export usage reports from Qstack in CSV, XLS, or JSON file formats.
