Nebulon delivers smartInfrastructure in Supermicro Ultra Servers

Nebulon, Inc’s  smartInfrastructure is a server-embedded, infrastructure software delivered as-a-service, which offers the benefits of the public cloud on-premises, from core to edge for any application: containerised, virtualised or bare-metal. Leveraging Supermicro Ultra servers, this data centre service enables self-service infrastructure provisioning, infrastructure management-as-a-service, and enterprise shared and local data services.


Nebulon also introduced two new smartInfrastructure solutions: Nebulon smartCore and Nebulon smartEdge.

Nebulon has also announced its first smartEdge customer with Supermicro, UK-based service provider

“Supermicro’s Ultra server solution with Nebulon smartInfrastructure is a significant benefit to our customers,” said Eric Sindelar, GM of Operations and Advanced Technology Development, Supermicro. “We are seeing a lot of interest in Nebulon smartInfrastructure with our Ultra server line from both enterprises and service providers who are looking to simplify their core and edge data centre deployments.”

DCI, a service provider specialising in providing data centre colocation and cloud solutions, specifically chose Supermicro, known as a leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server technology innovation, with Nebulon’s smartEdge solution, to run its edge offering ‘DataQube’. DataQube utilises a liquid immersion cooling technology, to efficiently maintain temperatures of racks comprised of Nebulon-enabled Supermicro servers. With DataQube immersion cooling technology, DCI can deploy a modular, 5G-enabled data centre without the need for traditional cooling infrastructure. 

This approach means DCI can rapidly deploy a distributed cloud anywhere, anytime and deliver significant energy savings to its customers while reducing costs. The smartEdge-based DataQube is ideal for remote areas and heat-intensive regions such as Africa, where DCI is currently developing a solution for deployment of field hospitals as part of a charitable initiative.

“These hospitals are located in remote areas with hot climates and have specific IT needs for storing and processing patient data, viewing charts and using collaboration tools such as video calling with other physicians,” said Chris Ward-Jones, CTO, DCI. “These capabilities must be extremely reliable and be delivered at a low cost. With zero-touch remote management and improved density compared to traditional HCI, we can use the Nebulon smartEdge solution to flexibly and cost-effectively scale at the edge in a way previously not possible.”

“Customers want the cloud experience for their on-premises infrastructure across their core, hosted and edge deployments,” said Siamak Nazari, Co-founder and CEO of Nebulon. “Supermicro with Nebulon smartInfrastructure, and specifically the Nebulon smartEdge solution, allows customers and partners like DCI to make this a reality.”
