nephoscale OpenStack-based infrastructure management software

Create NephOS powered public, private, and hybrid clouds, and manage them from a single interface.

Why Choose a NephoScale IaaS Software-Defined-Data-Center Solution?

The answer is NephOS, which is at the core of the NephoScale end-to-end cloud solution. NephOS is a complete end-to-end hardened cloud software suite, which leverages OpenStack, and is available in the form of NephoScale’s on-demand public and private cloud services platform, and as licensed software for on-premise use by enterprises or for customized OEM applications.

NephOS can be scaled globally across many locations. It can be used with NephoScale’s on-demand public cloud service, and seamlessly integrated with on-premise NephOS powered private clouds running on varied brands of hardware, all managed from a single NephoScale portal and a common API.

One of the many unique advantages NephOS brings is the ability to automatically ingest, integrate, and automate many different types of hardware. The ability of NephOS to easily create customized and highly integrated converged infrastructure solutions is what truly sets NephoScale apart from the rest.

What is NephOS?

NephOS is truly an end-to-end turnkey cloud software solution that includes inventory management, billing, ticketing, both virtual and bare metal on-demand provisioning, an infinitely scalable object-based storage system, software defined networking technology, and a cloud automation and orchestration build language. NephoScale NephOS enables companies to have an integrated single-pane view for self-provisioning and management of on-premise and off-premise, virtual and bare metal, public and private NephOS clouds.

With its automated bare metal provisioning capability NephOS can support any hypervisor or cloud management system within the platform. NephOS unifies the elements of auto-discovery, computing, storage, software-defined-networking, provisioning, orchestration, billing/chargeback, and ticketing into a software defined utility that is stable and can scale globally as a hybrid private and public cloud deployment. The wide array of deployment and consumption models natively supported by NephOS is our main competitive advantage, and is a capability that is hard to find. NephoScale is one of only a few cloud software companies that can truly deliver on claims of such flexibility.


Hybrid Cloud and Hybrid Compute technology

With access to on-demand dedicated servers enterprises can bring on-demand cloud agility to areas of their business that have not been able to enjoy such levels of efficiency to-date. Bare metal dedicated servers are important computing assets to have on-demand access to through an API, and they are absolutely necessary for properly supporting private clouds, large databases, analytics and data processing projects, legacy software applications, tight security restrictions, and rigorous compliance requirements.

NephOS is a proven enterprise grade cloud management software system that provides extreme levels of reliability and performance. NephOS was designed to be a trusted business solution that is both robust and secure, and was developed by engineers and data center operators with real-world experience delivering large scale infrastructure in hosting environments. NephOS is a highly complex software stack with advanced functionality, yet it is also stable, easily customized, and simple to deploy and operate. End users can get started with the intuitive user interface and be deploying server, storage, and networking infrastructure within minutes.

NephoScale is an ideal partner for service providers providing cloud services, and technology companies that want to offer their software or hardware “as-a-service”. The advantage NephOS delivers, its ability to ingest, integrate, and automate virtually any network, compute, or storage hardware to meet almost any compatibility or consumption requirement.

OEM Resellers and Technology companies often have equipment that they resell or manufacture that they must offer as an integrated and automated cloud services solution in order to to satisfy all the stakeholders’ needs in any particular opportunity. If the equipment they resell, or make, can be sold as-a-service then they now have a way to allow their customers to consume the equipment on-demand as-a-cloud-service.

For the same reason they need the tight hardware integration capabilities of NephOS, Resellers and Technology Manufacturing companies need Hybrid Cloud and Hybrid Compute resulting in seamless integration across dedicated and virtual servers, on-premise and off-premise locations, public and private clouds, all managed from a single easy-to-use web interface or REST API. Provision Linux or Windows virtual servers in minutes, provision a “cloud-in-a-cloud” using on-demand bare metal server clusters to create on-premise or off-premise private clouds, use any cloud management system of your choice, and access a common server image library, or list of OpenStack Heat Templates, to dramatically increase the efficiency of initial deployments and ongoing managed operations.

Core Advantages of NephOS

Compatibility and Integration:

Being based upon OpenStack open source software, NephOS is highly extensible and can utilize tools, connectors, and drivers developed by the community to create customized automated cloud solutions that include most any selection of network, compute, and storage hardware. The following technologies and appliances can be integrated with, and automated by, NephOS: SANs, NASs, Ethernet switches, load balancers, firewalls, DDos appliances, servers, GPUs, PCI Flash, FPGAs, DSPs, NVDIMM, etc.

Commodity Hardware:

While NephOS can be seamlessly integrated with many different custom hardware types, it is also designed to leverage open source software and commodity hardware to continually drive costs down for network, compute, and storage.


The power of the NephOS platform lies in its ability to provide a single-pane view for on-demand provisioning and management of on-premise and off-premise, virtual and dedicated, public and private clouds, on any cloud management system.

Hybrid Cloud:

Tightly integrate on-premise and off-premise public and private clouds into a single easy-to-use interface creating a seamless on-premise/off-premise environment. Provision virtual servers on-demand in minutes. Run cloud-in-a-cloud using on-demand bare metal server clusters to create on-premise or off-premise private clouds using any cloud management system of your choice (e.g. VMware, OpenStack, CloudStack, Eucalyptus, Cloud Foundry, etc.). Access a common server image and CloudScript template library for more efficient operations

Hybrid Compute:

Get better performance than with 100% virtualized cloud environments, with NephoScale’s Hybrid Compute. Combine on-demand bare metal dedicated servers and virtual servers on the same secure low latency broadcast domain. Share the same API, network broadcast domain, and base server images across both virtual and dedicated servers.

Elastic Networking:

NephoScale’s 10/40 Gbps Linux based software-defined networking (SDN) technology provides an API programmable network overlay allowing for the seamless single-pane view integration of both virtual and bare metal dedicated servers on the same low latency layer 2 broadcast domain. Elastic Networking also allows for the insertion of myriad custom network services, or virtualized network functions (NFV) technology across the NephOS cloud platform and enables the extension of layer 2 broadcast domains across multiple physical NephOS powered data center locations.
