Features

Legacy Free

We created Zetastack for the modern data centre.

Say goodbye to SAN, iSCSI, Fibre Channel, multipathing, volumes and LUNs.

Say hasta la vista to LTO tape backups.

Say good riddance to power hungry, yet idle, legacy hardware.

Say hello to scale-out hyper-converged technology without the hassle.

Modern GUI

Zetastack features a modern web based interface.

We use HTML5 with no fancy extensions, proprietary plugins or flash.

The interface works with any modern browser that is standards compliant.

Just login to a single node to perform VM management across the whole cluster.

Notice how certain other virtualization vendors have struggled with moving to a modern web interface? We'll not mention any names.

Distributed HA Storage

Zetastack performs erasure coding storage replication between the nodes.

This is a scale out replacement for traditional SANs.

The storage is fault tolerant in the event of node failure.

VM images, snapshots, ISOs and templates are stored as files in the distributed storage.

We support any disk device including NVMe flash storage.

KVM & LXC Hypervisors

Run any operating system with the KVM hypervisor.

Run Linux containers with the LXC hypervisor.

KVM and LXC machines can exist on the same nodes at the same time.

Manage KVM and LXC machines with the same management system.

VMs can be live migrated between nodes in the cluster.

Rapid VM Creation

Create new Linux VMs in seconds from pre-configured templates.

Intelligent cloning is used to avoid duplicating data when creating VMs from templates.

Choose from CentOS, Debian, Fedora, openSUSE and Ubuntu templates.

You can also install VMs the traditional way from ISO CD-ROM images.

VM Images & Snapshots

VM images are thin provisioned. Newly created images take up almost no space.

Multiple snapshots can be taken. VM images can be rolled back to a previous snapshot in seconds.

VM Load Balancing & HA

VMs are automatically load balanced between the nodes in the cluster.

In the event of node failure, the VMs on the failed node are automatically restarted on the other nodes.

Secure Console

A web based console is included which connects over WSS (WebSocket Secure).

Everything you do in the console is encrypted by SSL/TLS.

vSwitch

Zetastack includes a multilayer virtual switch.

Multiple physical network interfaces can be bonded together in the vSwitch for the VM network traffic.

QoS

Apply quality of service (QoS) to VM images and interfaces.

Policies can be added, updated and removed without restarting the VM.

Backup & Restore

The backup solution is fully integrated in the HCI stack.

You can backup to the LAN or to the cloud.

Amazon S3, Google CS and Azure Blob are supported.

Most NAS appliances are supported.

You can restore single VM images or entire VMs.

Cluster Utilization

You can view detailed realtime and historical data on the cluster hardware utilization.

Look at CPU, memory, storage, networking and power consumption across the cluster.

Memory usage across the cluster.

Easy Updates

Updates are delivered over the internet.

Updates are applied live to the cluster without any disruption to the running VMs.
