To promote open-source technologies, “OCP + OpenStack”, and help enterprises build a tailored private cloud with efficient workload management tools, Sardina Systems and Circle B have cooperated to develop a full life-cycle cloud management software solution validated on best-in-class OCP hardware and supported by professionally managed services. The two parties have successfully innovated and optimized their cutting-edge solutions to build resilient, scalable cloud instances for the enterprise. The flexible architecture and underlying modular infrastructure make it possible to customize the joint solution components - compute, storage or multi-site high availability (HA) - according to the enterprise needs.

Kenneth Tan, Executive Director of Sardina Systems, said:

“The principles of OCP are based on sharing the best practices and experience inside the community. The open-source approach used by OCP results in many hardware solutions that successfully fit specific use cases and significantly optimize data center infrastructure costs, including energy consumption and hardware utilization rate. The OCP designs of IT equipment provided by Circle B use the lowest possible amount of energy. FishOS smart engines constantly monitor cloud system health avoiding overloading and interruptions; our solution manages cloud workload to save energy costs and raise the hardware utilization rate to 40%. Together with Circle B, we offer a perfect IT solution for the data centers and their customers that focus on sustainability goals, responsible digital transformation and TCO savings”.
