SkySilk Cloud-In-A-Box provides optimized enterprise class features for IaaS (such as Integrated Backups/Snapshots, VDI Support, and more), alongside an intuitive web interface, designed to leverage resources to their fullest and reduce overall IT costs and administration resources

SkySilk has achieved a tightly integrated private cloud environment using open source components such as Linux KVM, Ceph™, and Open Vswitch, among others to manage virtual machines, protected storage, virtualized networks, and HA Clusters.

Utilizing Proxmox VE (​a complete open source server virtualization management solution) ​we are able to provide KVM and​ container-based virtualization with an easy to use front end GUI. By adding multiple SkyBlocks together, the cluster distributes all compute and storage loads across all available resources to create a highly available cluster without a single point of failure, all in the smallest possible footprint in your rack. Growing the cluster is painless simply connect another Cloud-In-A-Box, add it to the cluster through your personal control panel, and you’re ready to deploy your scalable workload!

Why skysilk Cloud-in-a-box?

SkySilk Cloud-In-A-Box solution can save any organization bounds of valuable time, resources, and money without the need for a dedicated SAN, shared storage, or a RAID controller. Our private cloud server provides optimized clustered compute resources and utilizes a fully clustered file system powered by Ceph™, an ​object-based storage system that enables fully distributed protected storage clusters to scale out seamlessly. In effect, SkySilk Cloud-In-A-Box provides a no single point of failure storage and compute system in just 2U of rackspace.

Our solution includes fully loaded backup functionality right out of the box, via either offline or online (live) backups. A full-featured integrated job scheduler with GUI controls is included and Cloud-In-A-Box employs all open source software without any vendor lock in, including KVM, OpenVSwitch and Ceph™, meaning there is no mandatory maintenance contracts, licenses, entitlements, or Veeam subscriptions required!
