Five Innovative Engines
Cloud-native engine - With the built-in K8s APIs, the cloud-native engine offers unified orchestration and management of VMs, containers, and functions to help you build an application-centric cloud data center. Featuring small size and fast speed the cloud-native engine greatly improves resource usage.
Chixiao acceleration engine - With the built-in intelligent acceleration card, the Chixiao acceleration engine provides frontend-to-backend acceleration with no host-side losses, allowing for creating 50% more VMs with the same number of CPU cores, reducing per-VM cost by 20%, and doubling the 4K random IOPS performance than non-acceleration schemes. A lossless network with the shortest IO path in the industry reduces network latency from milliseconds to nanoseconds.
Multi-role engine - With an adaptive architecture, UIS Manager enables you to perform unified management of x86 and ARM resources. It is compatible with physical nodes with different chips, models, settings, and capabilities and supports virtual nodes, distributed storage nodes, hybrid nodes, AI accelerated nodes, and bare metal nodes.
Hybrid cloud engine - Provides high-speed interconnection between on-premises private cloud and UIS on UniCloud. It enables you to set up a hybrid cloud architecture with homogeneous resources, software, management, delivery, disaster recovery, and migration.
Intelligent edge cloud engine - An ultimately light-weighted edge cloud engine for the access of massive IoT endpoints. Based on a cloud-edge-endpoint architecture, the UIS Edge platform deployed on the edge interconnects the cloud, edge, and endpoint data channels and control planes.
Convergence and Simplicity
Management convergence - Unifies the management of compute, storage, network, security, monitoring, and cloud service software capabilities to provide cloud capabilities out of the box.
Kernel convergence - Seamlessly integrates virtualized kernel and IPv6 capabilities, high-performance vSwitches, SR-IOV NIC driver, and GPU driver for system efficiency, reliability, and stability.
Storage convergence - Virtualizes the local disks into a resource pool to provide unified block, file, and object storage services to accommodate structured, unstructured, and semi-structured data.
Simplified service deployment - Integrates one-click auto migration tools that support P2V and V2V migration to help you quickly migrate traditional services to the cloud.
Visual and simplified O&M - Provides a flat, adaptive, and scalable platform for agile service delivery. The dashboard display, one-click operation, system health model, visual deployment, and quick access features enable you to perform visual, digital, automatic, and intelligent management, operations, and maintenance. Support using one click mouse button to analyze the use of historical resources of virtual machine and host, and provide data support for planning and decision-making, provide screenshots of product functions.
UIS CAS performs well in the SPECvirt test and provides innovative features such as DRX, agentless anti-virus, application HA, and cloud rainbow. Provide the function of virtual machine recycle bin, manage the deleted virtual machine in a unified way, prevent the data loss caused by the false deletion of virtual machine, support recycle bin file saving cycle configuration, the overdue file will be automatically deleted. Provide application level HA function, automatically detect and repair application faults running in virtual machine without installing agent inside virtual machine, including but not limited to Apache tomcat, JDK, Apache HTTP server, mysql, SQL server, SharePoint and other applications, and support user-defined script to monitor application status.
Unified Distributed Storage
UIS ONEStor uses a unified distributed storage architecture to ensure high performance, scalability, and security of the storage system and support automatic O&M.
Unified distributed storage architecture - Provides unified block, file, and object storage services without requiring independent metadata servers. Distributed global caching greatly improves read and write performance. Support multiple storage service through single cluster, including distributed blocks, object, NAS storage service in the same platform, compatible with S3 interface.
High availability - Supports replication redundancy policies with two to six replicas and erasure coding redundancy policies of N+1 to N+4 levels to fully protect data. UIS ONEStor provides replication, snapshot, clone, copy, failure domain, and protection domain features.
High reliability - Uses a fully redundant network to eliminate single point of failure and ensure uninterrupted services upon disk or node failures. UIS ONEStor automatically reconstructs data upon disk or node failures, and you can adjust the reconstruction priority. Nodes and disks can be added or deleted without interrupting services, and auto data balancing is supported.
Reliability Monitoring Center
UIS Manager provides visual and simplified operations and maintenance. Administrators can obtain resource information and service state at one click and quickly locate specific issues. Hierarchical display of service, system, and hardware reliability states and one-click health inspection help improve O&M efficiency.
Multidimensional Data Protection
UIS provides service protection at three levels: UIS backup, UIS disaster recovery, and UIS active-active schemes to cover the six disaster recovery tiers defined in Information security technology-Disaster recovery specifications for information system.
Flexible redundancy policy - The distributed storage component integrated in UIS supports volume-based replication and erasure coding redundancy policies, providing data reconstruction without requiring hot backup disks and ensuring data integrity.
Multiscenario backup - The agentless backup feature enables you to perform differential, full, and incremental backup of VMs without additional costs. Continuous data protection is supported.
SRM - Disaster recovery schemes such as async remote replication meets the disaster recovery requirements of both heterogeneous and homogeneous sites.
Active-active - Provides data center disaster recovery to ensure continuous running of critical services.
IaaS capabilities - Provides abundant IaaS services, including self-service resource delivery, hierarchical privilege management, multitenant management, workflow and support ticket management, and heterogeneous virtual resource incorporation.
Open REST APIs - Provides standard REST APIs and is compatible with OpenStack H/J/K/L/M/P plug-ins and interfaces.
Open platform - Compatible with 200+ guest operating systems and 20+ open-source and commercial VNFs.
Open cooperation - Open cooperation in verticals such as security, backup, industry-specific applications, and cloud management platform.
Critical Service Benefits
UIS provides the following benefits in the deployment, management, and application of critical database services.
High I/O performance - Separation of metadata and data reduces resource loss caused by access and disk caching improves log processing efficiency.
Simplified infrastructure and management - Consolidates different load systems into a unified resource pool to greatly improve compute resource usage.
Fast deployment and delivery of database instances - Enables you to directly configure and allocate compute, storage, and network resources in existing resource pools, shortening the configuration time and reducing the technical requirements on operators.
Best practice for database instance deployment - Provides deployment templates that help in the configuration of compute resource flavors, operating system settings, and storage resource planning.
Dynamic compute resource scaling - Dynamically scales compute resources based on service needs, improving resource usage and simplifying initial planning and infrastructure upgrade.
