THE NEXT CLOUD WILL BE BUILT WITH CONTAINERS

 

 Containers

Exosphere utilizes Glassware 2.0, a proprietary container based technology optimized for server based computing. This unique technology allows for effortless moves of applications from desktops or workstations to the server room. These containers can run both legacy and current Windows applications regardless of any hardware dependencies.

 Microvisor

A microvisor is basically a very scaled down instance that can allow for the running of an isolated emulator. This technology is utilized when a non-X86 workload needs to be moved to a modern data center. It can run within a Glassware 2.0 container and provides complete isolation from other applications.

APP CATALOG

YOUR OWN APPSTORE

 

The Exosphere app repository allows you to create your own catalog of verified images for distribution within your organization. You can install applications, and even choose the specific version and which patches you wish to include, into your catalogue.

You can convert a website into a standalone application for publication as an App within your catalogue. This provides great flexibility when needing to provide secure access to applications built to live on browsers such as Internet Explorer or those that require specific plugins such as Java or Flash.

All administrators within your global namespace gain access to these containerized applications, complete with patches and dependencies in place, and ready for one click deployment. Applications can be pushed out to multiple applications servers simultaneously and global deployments become a quick and simple.

 

GW CONNECT

ANY APPLICATION ON ANY DEVICE

Exosphere containerized applications are presented on end user devices through a remoting technology that is loosely based on the Microsoft RDP protocol at its core. It has been customized to work seamlessly within a containerized infrastructure.

You can access containerized applications from any device through a browser including HTML 5 browsers. Additionally, you can download a Glassware 2.0 Connect client for Chromebooks, iOS and Android devices.

 

Virtual Integrated Exchange “VIX”

The VIX is super cool. So cool actually we don’t want to talk about it. Let’s just say with this technology our servers see other server hardware as if it was local.

NETWORK INTELLIGENCE FOR REDUCED LATENCY

 

The inventors of Glassware 2.0 Container technology have a long history in the cellular communication industry and have brought to bear some of those skills when designing the Exosphere QOS protocols.

The Exosphere communication protocols intelligently route traffic to the application server that provides the best user experience at that moment in time. Often that is the closest server to the user, but it could also be the network path with the least amount of throttle, the server with the greatest free compute capacity…or a combination of all three. This unique approach means that each user session benefits from smart connection protocols that deliver “network aware applications”.

Mission-Critical Apps – No Problem!

Regardless of how many 9s you feel are adequate, Exosphere delivers.With the ability to run contemporaneous sessions, availability of critical applications and data is assured.We simply allow for a second fully paralleled instance to run on a redundant server located somewhere else.If one drops the other keeps going; you will however lose 1 keystroke during the switch, we think that’s acceptable for now.
