Origo Stabile

Origo Stabile

– your data, your cloud

Stabile is a software stack for basic infrastructure orchestration and efficient computing. Install Stabile on standard x86 hardware, or on an Origo Engine, and begin managing your virtual servers, storage and networking in a simple interface or with our REST API.

Stabile is a locally hosted alternative to the global infrastructure clouds. Stabile was built to manage our hardware product – the Origo Engine. It will however run on must moderne server hardware. You may install Stabile on a single management server, and simply PXE-boot your existing servers from the management server, adding them as compute nodes to your private cloud. The only requirement is that the nodes should have two network cards – one for internal traffic including storage, and one for external traffic, i.e. traffic to and from the virtual servers.

Contrary to most global clouds, you can upload your existing VMware-servers directly to Stabile. In this way Origo Stabile provides and easy way to transfer your entire IT stack and operations to a simple and efficient private cloud.

In short Stabile gives you the option of using the global clouds for their wonderful CDN’s while keeping your data and virtual servers where we think they belong – with you.

Upload your virtual servers

Upload your own virtual servers
Your organization most likely already uses virtual servers. You may be looking at a request for a new SAN or a new expensive switch, and be wondering if you shouldn’t just get it over with, upgrade your Internet connection, and move all your data and servers to a public cloud. Monthly costs would likely go down. Service agreements, investments in hardware, power and rent would be replaced by a single monthly bill.

Allow us to counter, that this bill would likely be quite large, if you run more than a few servers. Also your company data and infrastructure would be in someone else’s posession, if that matters to you. Security would be a matter of trusting someone else.

With Stabile and Origo Engine we have tried hard to provide a third way. The goal has been to bring the efficiency of the public clouds and the simplicy of management to your own data center. If you run more than 20 powerful servers, total costs are much, much lower running them on an Engine C2 and managing them with Stabile, than running them in a public cloud. And your data will be in your posession. You will always know exactly what’s happening.

Simply put you can move your servers from a complex VMware environment to a single Engine C2 and manage it all in your web browser. The initial investment will be low and the montly bill will pretty much equal the power bill. Simply upload your .vmdk or other supported image files, start using your servers, and stop worrying about infrastructure.

Install new servers and services in minutes

Build new servers in minutes Choose from a collection of popular server applications we have packaged and made available as Cloud Apps in our App Store, so you may build your organization’s new services in minutes. We currently offer the following Cloud Apps:

  • Windows Server

No introduction needed. Install a standard Windows server in one minute.

  • Ubuntu Server

Sometimes you just need a solid Linux server in a hurry. For developers for testing new software or for projects. Try this Cloud App and see how user-friendly Linux can be.

  • Samba File Server with BTsync and web UI

This Cloud App is packed with features. Give your business a new file server with built-in Dropbox functionality, courtesy of BitTorrent. You can start this app in a minute, and it will work both as a regular file server and a sync-station for mobile devices in your organization.

You can of course still upload you own images, or upload an iso, create a new image and install the operative system of your own choosing.

Manage and monitor your servers from a web browser

Manage with console

Start your servers, access the console, manage your images, shapshot, clone, master, suspend, etc., all from your web browser.

Stabile also has built-in monitoring with an assortment of monitors available, including ping, and custom http(s). If a service goes down, you can be notified by email and/or XMPP alerts over e.g. Google Hangouts.

Connect securely with your own network

Connect securely

Getting your network securely connected to your servers running at a cloud operator, often in another country, is one of the main road blocks for cloud computing, particularly for clients in the public sector. Stabile allows connecting internally managed VLAN’s to your existing infrastructure, effectively allowing virtual servers running in Stabile to integrate seamlessly with your existing network infrastructure.

Backup included

Backup included

Even with snapshots and clones of your images, the need for robust backup does not go away. Stabile makes regularly scheculed complete backups of your images, which you may use for complete restores, or for restoring individual files, all managed from your web browser. Engine C2 will include backup batteries with integrated management through Stabile.

No lock-in

No lock-inStabile uses industry-standard qcow2 images. These are always available for download. This means that you can choose to download your all your servers disks as image files, and deploy these in another virtualization environment or upload them to a public cloud.
