Alibaba Cloud ZStack is the next-generation open-source cloud computing Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) software.Designed for intelligent data centres of the future, it provides a complete set of APIs to flexibly manage resource such as computing, storage, and networks. You can use it to set up various cloud environments, such as Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS).
Alibaba Cloud ZStack offers the newest generation of OpenStack technology with unified hybrid cloud management. Offering a highly inexpensive hyperconverged platform.
Resource Utilization The overall resource utilization rate is typically 10% -15% without ZStack, but is increased to more than 60% by leveraging a ZStack solution.High Performance ZStack deploys hundreds of VMs in a few minutes, performance increase of 200% compared with other providersScalability ZStack uses technologies such as full asynchronous architecture and in-process microservices to achieve second-level creation of cloud computing.
VMware vSAN is an enterprise-class storage virtualization software that offers hyperconverged infrastructure and hybrid cloud to manage compute and storage with a single platform.
Seamless evolutionvSAN is native to vSphere and requires no additional tools.Industry-leading flexibilityvSAN ecosystem offers ability to run HCI on certified solutions with preferred vendor.Multi-cloud capabilitiesvSAN provides consistent operations from edge to core to cloud with intrinsic security throughput.
Nutanix is an enterprise cloud software built on hyperconverged infrastructure technology that unifies private, public and distributed clouds to power businesses.
Modernized DatacenterEnterprise cloud built with hyper-converged compute, storage, virtualization and networking at the core.Simple to useRun apps and workloads on a single platform with exceptional availability, performance and simplicity.Ease of management Move apps and data between public, private and edge clouds with ease.
ZStack, VMware and Nutanix address the issue of deficient traditional architecture by increasing the efficiency of available resources and simplifying the management processes. All three are infrastructure solutions (HCI) which look to integrate processing, network, memory and storage in the same cluster or container.Both also feature single data stores where all disks of each nodes are joined and presented to all the hosts that are apart of the cluster, allowing for scalable growth.Nutanix, unlike VMware, features the ability to choose hardware and virtualization platforms that best suit each business platform. With this, Nutanix does not require additional licensing and does not rely on a network solution which reduces cost on infrastructure and skilled labour. In contrast, VMware requires additional licensing if infrastructure is not already VMware-based as vSAN is built into vSphere, specific licensing is needed to use the software.Cost-Benefit can undoubtedly be a determining factor between choosing between Nutanix and VMware for many companies. As we outweigh the pros and cons of each, both are very complete tools that excel differently by factoring an enterprise's business scenario. The newly rising competitor, being Alibaba Cloud ZStack, offers many advantageous software features at an significantly inexpensive price point compared to its competitors.
