Technology

the data center reimagined

Verge-OS was created from scratch, because this was the only way to realize total data center abstraction from a single operating system.

Verge-OS is the first and only operating system that abstracts the functions of compute (hypervisor), storage, and networking from commodity bare metal hardware. These functions are integrated into a single operating system used to create and manage software-defined data centers.

Integrated Features

Compute Features

BUILT-IN HYPERVISOR (QEMU/KVM)

Verge-OS is a type 1 hypervisor based on the QEMU/KVM hypervisor technology.

SUPPORTS LINUX AND WINDOWS GUESTS

Migrate your VM’s into the Verge-OS hypervisor easily. Verge-OS is optimized for linux and windows guests, but can run any x86 based OS.

LIVE MIGRATION – ZERO DOWNTIME

Migrate small data sets all the way to entire SDDCs on the fly with zero downtime.

WEB-BASED MACHINE MANAGEMENT

Manage all your virtual machines and data centers via Verge-OS's intuitive HTML interface.

WEB CONSOLE WITH KVM/AUDIO SUPPORT

Connect your keyboard, mouse, and monitor directly to your VMs via the web interface. No need to RDP or use another external client.

BARE METAL-LIKE PERFORMANCE

Virtual machines perform as if they are running directly on bare metal.

AUTOMATED VM SNAPSHOT & RETENTION

Configure snapshot policies to meet any schedule needed.

Storage Features

EASILY SCALED

Verge-OS was built around addressing the complexities of scale. Simply add more disks or another server to your cluster and Verge-OS will gracefully distribute your data to the added storage as a background process.

GLOBAL INLINE DEDUPLICATION

Data is not just deduplicated on individual VM’s or on a tenant by tenant basis, but every block that resides on the entire environment.

SILENT CORRUPTION DETECTION & CORRECTION

The vSAN stores a checksum of every block of data that is written to it. When that data is read, it is verified for integrity. This technique protects against silent corruption and bit rot. In the event of finding a bad block of data, our intelligent algorithm will check for redundant copies locally within the system. If that block of data cannot be found, DR/Backup sites will be checked in real time, and the data block will be retrieved and repaired seamlessly without user interaction or down time.

OPTIMIZED REMOTE SYNCHRONIZATION

Leverage deduplication at not just one site, but across sites as well. If the destination site receiving your backups already has 90% of the same blocks of data, Verge-OS knows to only send those differentiating blocks.

AUTOMATED HEALTH SCANNING

Verge-OS actively monitors the state of an entire environment for any possible HW and SW issues to ensure business continuity.

MULTIPLE TIERS OF STORAGE INCLUDING: NVME, SSD, AND HDD

Storage tiering allows for the flexibility to mix and match drive types within a single, fully integrated environment. Simply select the tier where you would like your data to reside.

HIGH PERFORMANCE

Use commodity grade hardware and achieve Enterprise level performance with Verge-OS storage technology.

256 BIT DATA AT REST ENCRYPTION

Verge supports AES 256bit encryption for all your data on install.

INSTANT SNAPSHOTS & CLONING

Take or restore snapshots of your entire environment, tenant, or virtual machines without waiting. There is no need to consolidate disk images or store differentials as Verge-OS does this for you.

Network Features

Built-In Web Based Firewall

Plug your ISP directly into a Verge-OS powered environment for everything from DDOS protection to Authoritative DNS.

Integrated VPN – IPsec and WireGuard

Connect remote sites securely with Verge-OS integrated VPN technologies.

External / Internal Network Management

Ingest network segments external to Verge-OS by passing layer 2 traffic into the platform, or leverage our network encapsulation to internally create as many isolated internal virtual networks as you need.

NAT / PAT Rules Engine

Create and manage all of your network rules and routing.

Throughput and Packet Rate Throttling

Provide QOS on an environment to environment basis.

Real-Time and Historical Metrics

Monitor and review all network activity within every virtual data center.

External network management for BGP, OSPF, vLAN, and vXLAN

Empower your DR strategies by using BGP or OSPF protocols built directly into Verge-OS.

Per Network DHCP/DNS Server, IP Address Management, and Authoritative DNS

Every network created within Verge-OS allows for a rich feature set of routing and controls.

Isolated Secure Networks / Nested Tenants

Every network and tenant becomes its own isolated enclave.

Nested Multi-Tenancy

Verge-OS is the only solution that provides securely nested multi-tenancy. This tenancy model provides dedicated data center level instances. The architecture is designed from the lowest level for building secure enclaves to isolate tenants without dedicated physical hardware. Each tenant has its own user managed compute, storage and networking resources.

SECURITY

Verge-OS offers complete breadth and depth of user controls, security features, and monitoring built natively into the platform, limiting the security exposure footprint. By using security features such as two-factor authentication, password policies, storage encryption at rest, and other hardening features, Verge-OS delivers unparalleled security to your virtual data center.

Compute security

Verge-OS compute capabilities are tied directly to the built-in hypervisor, where all computational processes and data reside as a single integrated platform.

Storage Security

Verge-OS supports AES 256 bit encryption at rest. Our vSAN is built with RAIN architecture which provides data resiliency and stability.

Network Security

Verge-OS leverages VxLAN and containerized networks.  Virtual wires allow for the intercommunication of isolated services within networks.

Tenancy Security

Verge-OS offers true isolated tenants for added security layering. Dashboard authentication and access is unique and secure for every tenant.

single pane of glass

All the features and functions of Verge-OS are managed from a single, intuitive, and easy to use dashboard that can be securely accessed from any connected device, including tablet and mobile.

monitoring, logging, and alerts

Verge-OS provides full data center transparency in one place by monitoring and logging all user activity, as well as hardware performance and wear levels. Alerts are sent when required in order to proactively address any potential issues.

API

Verge-OS has a rest-like API that enables all functions of the dashboard to be leveraged for further management and automation, improving business agility while decreasing operational overhead.
