Designed and implemented by Bull’s experts in collaboration with VMware, the novascale bullion server enables the optimization of resource management. With its native virtualization capabilities based on VMware technology, novascale bullion makes it possible to run multiple critical applications simultaneously, on a single machine. In addition, its 'scale-up' approach enables it to meet changing demand. novascale bullion represents a major advance towards a private enterprise cloud computing infrastructure.
- Specifically designed to virtualize business-critical applications
- Unprecedented levels of service and TCO improvement
- Energy-efficient design
With its modular architecture, supporting up to 16 sockets / 2TB RAM, novascale bullion is one of the most powerful, scalable platforms available on the market. With novascale bullion businesses are able to increase tenfold their capacity for growth. It delivers continuous availability with built-in redundancy of critical components, hot-swapping and automatic correction.
The modular architecture means customers only pay for what is really be used or consumed. novascale bullion uses standard components to deliver a better performance/cost ratio and much greater openness. novascale bullion provides one of the highest number of virtual machines per socket and per physical machine, which reduces the cost of software licenses and support.
With fewer objects to manage, simplified high-availability architectures, a built-in disaster recovery plan and easier updates for hardware, software and firmware alike, systems administration costs for novascale bullion are considerably lower than 2-socket server architectures.
Native virtualization and resource sharing enable organizations to combine high performance with intelligent energy consumption. For example, the patented power supply used by novascale bullion reduces on average the energy consumption by 40% according to the tests performed by Bull Competence Centers. Moreover, customers can achieve a 70% improvement in energy consumption compared with traditional 2-socket server architecture.
