Multiple Domain Support
Domain Controller Integration
In a multi-region level,
no single point of failure
exists within the cloud platform. Data syncing between regions is a prime need, and the Cloud platform addresses this pretty well. In a single region setup, no single point of failure exists within the data center. The storage platform syncing can be designed according to syncing needs between regions. The core engine of the cloud is also designed in a no single point of failure architecture.
For organizations using a reasonable number of servers, the Cloud platform provides lower Total Cost of Ownership and lower maintenance overhead, with lower monthly recurring costs (like power bills, cooling etc.).
The core cloud platform is fully isolated from the tenants and other workloads. With appropriate software defined IPS integration, security group utilization and firewalls, the cloud platform is capable of surviving large attacks, isolate resources from attacks. Compromise within a tenant has virtually no effect on other tenants.
Built-in Backup & Restoration
Persistent data/disk of the compute resources (e.g, virtual machines) can be securely backed up (whether manually or automatically) on the object storage platform. The restoration process is also straightforward. Apart from full backup, periodic snapshots and restoration comes in handy within Tirzok Cloud Platform.
Multi Region Support
Multi region support is built into Tirzok Cloud Platform. Outage of one region can be handled gracefully by the other region(s). Both Disaster Recovery (DR) and Active/Active Data Center Regions are supported with the availability of high speed inter Data Center connections.
Software Defined Networking
Network and network resource (e.g, routers) creation are not dependent on the strict physical networking layout. Provisioning of a new network and its resources require couple of seconds compared to months in some cases. Usage of tenant/project based networks increases security and separates broadcast domains from one another.
Software Defined Storage
Software defined storages are used throughout while designing Tirzok Private Cloud Platform. All types of storage interfaces (file storage, block storage and object storage) are provided through highly scalable software defined storage platforms (e.g, Ceph).
The whole cloud platform (compute resources, storage platforms, etc.) is horizontally scalable, and performance increases quite linearly with the addition of resources.
Failure Domain Isolation
Data can be stored with failure domains in mind. For example, if the storage platform consists of five racks of servers, then each rack can be treated as a separate failure domain. Within the five racks, simultaneous failure of two racks will not hamper the storage access pattern.
Compute resources can be allocated in groups based on the hardware variation and/or availability requirements. For example, a few servers can be placed in a group who have locally attached storage and a few servers can be placed in another group who are connected to shared storage platforms.
No Vendor Lock-in
Tirzok Cloud Platform do not advocate any particular vendor for any kind of hardware. Hardware from any vendor can be utilized provided appropriate hardware sizing is performed based on the requirements.
Data Protection Orchestration Service
Application Catalog Service
Auto Scaling Service
Integration of Cloud Networking with SDN Controllers like OpenDayLight
Integration of Block Storage Service with different storage backends
Private Cloud is a solution specially adapted for critical, industrialized and secure business activities. Free yourself from infrastructure administration, Tirzok takes care of hardware virtualization and makes sure that it runs.
