SAN JOSE, CA — Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT), a global data center solution provider, unveiled a new lineup of server products incorporating the Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors in mid-July. Now the company has started to deliver the new servers to Cloud Service Providers (CSP) to power its customer’s new computing frontiers for future growth. “Since QCT’s inception, our goal has been to help cloud service providers of every size to embrace data center transformation. QCT’s next-generation server platforms are a new milestone on our path to that goal,”said Mike Yang, President of QCT.

On July 11th, QCT launched their next generation of server products based on the latest Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processor, which, with its significant leaps in I/O, memory, storage and network technologies, enables QCT to make considerable upgrades to its existing portfolio. In addition to leveraging these upgrades, the QCT next-generation platforms underwent breakthrough redesigns, enhancements and innovations to form a new foundation for secure, agile solutions for CSPs.


Enhanced Performance

  • Improved Computing Performance — up to 21 percent boost in transmission efficiency.
  • Doubled Memory Capacity — support for up to 128GB per DIMMs. 1.5 times broader memory bandwidth, increasing to 6-channels per CPU.
  • Improved I/O Capacity — more PCIe lanes to support U.2 SSD and networking adapters, ensuring no scaling bottlenecks.

Reduced TCO

  • Extremely low system idle power.
  • Optional 80 Plus Titanium PSU for reducing data center power consumption.
  • Flexible I/O options, including a variety of SAS mezzanine and OCP NIC/ PHY mezzanine options, so users avoid the extra expense of unnecessary LOM or RAID controllers.
  • Advanced thermal cooling to increase the efficiency and stability of cooling subsystems.

Quick Deployment and Maintenance

  • Tool-less designs – including screwless drive trays and PCIe slot designs – greatly reduce operational cost and time.
  • Intuitive data center management with QCT System Manager (QSM) via integration with industry standard RESTful API and Rack Scale Design (RSD).
  • Ready-to-ship with whole rack, pre-stacked and pre-cabled.
  • Out-of-box configuration tailored to support hyper-converged and software-defined solutions.

This next-generation platform, based on the Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors, is the latest in a long technology partnership between QCT and Intel. QCT has been working with Intel not only on the hardware platform side, but also on the solution side to ensure its software-defined data center offerings meet the strict Intel Select Solution criteria. “We’ve been very fortunate at Intel to collaborate with QCT over about the last decade, to bring about innovations to market very quickly. One of the latest successes has been the partnership from early design through early ship on the Intel Xeon Scalable platform [as part of the] Intel Select Solutions brand,” said Jason Waxman, Corporate Vice President General Manager, Data Center Solutions, Intel. “Together, Intel and QCT are able to deliver the performance efficiency and the agile and secure infrastructure that are allowing cloud service providers to meet their end user needs across a wide variety of cloud workloads and provide for new and differentiated services,” said Jeff Wittich, Director of CSP Business Acceleration, Intel.

As the new platforms combine Intel’s most advanced CPU features and QCT’s long-term expertise serving CSP customers, many early adopters have already tested the servers and expressed positive feedback.

“We’ve worked very closely with their teams to build customized storage solutions for our internal storage infrastructure called Magic Pocket. We are constantly amazed by how much innovation they’re building into their solutions that they provide to us, as well as the flexibility and willingness to understand our requirements and the needs and workloads our users have, and then customizing those solutions to meet those needs,” said Akhil Gupta, VP of Engineering at Dropbox.
“We’re moving towards convergent systems, to reduce the total cost of ownership not only in terms of power consumption, but to optimize the existing infrastructure we have on the data center level. That is why we are committed to strong partnerships: Intel delivers the underlying technology, and QCT puts it together in a way that is usable for us at 1&1”, said Robert Hoffmann, CEO, 1&1 Internet SE.

AUSTIN, TX – OnRamp Access, LLC, a leading high security and compliant hosting provider, is proud to announce the launch of its purpose-built, HITRUST-certified virtual private cloud (VPC) built on OpenStack® open-source software. OnRamp’s on-demand HITRUST Virtual Private Cloud helps organizations control costs, remain agile, and improve their compliance posture. It offers the ease of use of a public cloud—including capabilities like utility billing and self-service provisioning—with the security of a private cloud.

“OnRamp’s Virtual Private Cloud allows IT teams and DevOps to quickly meet market demands by deploying highly elastic environments that are secured to HITRUST standards. We built unique features into the product that solve common cloud challenges,” said OnRamp VP of Product Toby Owen.


For instance, users can control costs using capped resource usage, eliminate vendor lock-in through open-source APIs, and deploy even the most sensitive workloads with secure volume encryption. The virtual private cloud delivers a logically isolated environment that lets you retain control of your private networks, virtual machines, and storage, without the need for you to manage the infrastructure. And you can apply and maintain security settings for your entire environment with a dynamic policy engine.

“In a landscape of growing threats and increasing fines for non-compliance, it’s exciting to see OnRamp extend OpenStack’s use to meet healthcare security and compliance needs,” says Mark Collier, COO of the OpenStack Foundation. “One of our themes at the 2017 OpenStack Summit in Boston was the triad of cost, compliance, and capability. OnRamp’s VPC is a great example of how the community is moving OpenStack software into use cases that highlight those three Cs.”

“Launching our HITRUST-certified Virtual Private Cloud is just one of the ways OnRamp demonstrates our commitment to our customers’ needs for security, compliance and flexibility. We implement regimented processes and secure our facilities to meet stringent standards, and in turn, are able to share those benefits with our customers. OnRamp customers gain peace of mind knowing that all their systems, from their development environment to their mission critical apps, are supported by OnRamp’s systematic administrative, technical, logical and physical safeguards,” says OnRamp CEO Lucas Braun.

Concurrent to the product launch, the company achieved its Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) Common Security Framework (CSF) Certification. HITRUST CSF is the most widely recognized security accreditation in the healthcare industry, employing controls from several major security and standards bodies —HIPAA, PCI, ISO, NIST and others—to protect confidential data and critical assets.

With the HITRUST certification, OnRamp now delivers a suite of HITRUST-certified services, with secure-by-default configurations that save customers time and resources.

Kubernetes, the open source container automation platform developed by Google, has become the industry's de facto standard for orchestrating and managing containers, according to the announcement.
"Kubernetes really speaks to systems engineers, but there is a huge body of work to do to make it truly accessible to engineers who don't necessarily have the time to ‘dig into' the details of the project," wrote McLuckie, Heptio CEO, in a blog post. "Upstream versions of Kubernetes remain inaccessible to many from an operations and accessibility perspective. It is still too hard to deploy a Kubernetes cluster, qualify whether it is conformant, and stitch it into the fabric of enterprise IT systems."
Heptio will use the capital to "dramatically scale" its team and launch new products to make Kubernetes more accessible to developers and operators.
