NextIO delivers innovative server virtualization solutions that bring a smarter approach to data center simplicity. Server I/O virtualization can bring new life to server hardware and deliver new levels of efficiency. Today, too many technologies promise to bring simplicity, but only if you live totally in their world. That won’t happen with NextIO. That can’t happen.
The reality of today’s modern data centers is that customers are forced to deploy a number of different technologies, from a number of different vendors, in order to solve their business problems. With each new technology comes the promise of easy integration that rarely pays off – mainly because of the heterogeneous environment that they are deployed in.
NextIO is different. Our products are designed to complement, not complicate your data center. By utilizing industry standards like PCI Express and SNMP, and partnering with technology providers like Intel and Emulex, we deliver products that allow customers to easily integrate into their data centers without having to change drivers, software, interconnect technologies or even governance models.
vNET I/O Maestro
The vNET I/O Maestro removes I/O devices from each individual server – where they are typically over-provisioned – and moves them to an intelligent appliance at the top of the rack. All of the servers in the rack can easily connect to this appliance via industry-standard PCIe cables, achieving high throughput, simple manageability and ultimate flexibility.
The nControl software features an intuitive drag and drop GUI interface for the vNET I/O Maestro. With nControl, administrators can access their vNET from anywhere in the world, performing management functions like provisioning servers, setting QoS and bandwidth limits, moving resources and configuring connectivity options. nControl allows administrators to do in seconds what it might normally take minutes, hours or even days.
