Vision - The Agile Data Center
The Agile Data Center allows enterprises to move from dedicated assets towards dynamic resource allocation of virtual processing, storage and network. By minimizing obstacles and maximizing opportunities, abundant computing capacity is available, on demand, in a highly scalable, agile, secure and cost effective manner.
Maximize Opportunities. Minimize Obstacles.
OBSTACLES
Lack of Available Floor Space Operations and Maintenance Costs Isolated Storage, Compute and Data Resources Software and Hardware Licensing Costs Labor Costs Proprietary Technology
OPPORTUNITIES
AGILE DATA CENTER
Reduce Power Consumption and Heat Output Accelerate Provisioning of Systems and Software Reduce Licensing Costs Reduce Server Room Footprint Increase Server, Storage and Staff Utilization Leverage Open Standards and Architectures Rapid System Deployment
Military-grade Security Rapid Elasticity Seamless Regeneration Multi-tenancy Monitored & Measured Services Massive Redundancy
Leverages the security strengths of SELinux to deliver military-grade security capable of meeting the highest levels. Provides capabilities to scale up, out, or down according to consumer demand. Integrates automatic failover, system provisioning, and fully automatic infrastructure technologies to transparently regenerate systems and provide fault-tolerant capabilities. Creates pools of computing resources (storage, processing, memory and network) and enables dynamic provisioning of physical or virtual instances to multiple consumers using a multi-tenant model. Incorporates various management tools to provide situational awareness of all objects in the system— including virtual machine, hosts, guests, networks and storage. Combines high-availability clustering and replication strategies to provide redundancy of process, networked storage resources.
Open Architectures + Open Collaboration
The Open Source Powered Cloud - The Freedom to Evolve
Colloquium advocates the use of Open Source and Open Architecture solutions in the U.S. government market. We are a provider of Professional Services to Federal, State and Local Government clients with expertise in Data Center Automation and Virtualization, Enterprise Data Grids, and Cloud Platform solutions.
