FAQ


TECHNOLOGY
We have chosen VMware because it's the only product at the moment that can offer guaranties and certainties. VMware is a commercial product, so includes constant security patches, new features and improvements, in addition to a technical support. OpenStack is a great platform but it can't guarantee the same features because it's an Open Source project.
VMware is a point of reference, a worldwide leader in virtualization. The advantages are several, by using VMware for Stellar servers out clients have the guarantee of migrating towards Stellar without problems, both from private clouds inside the walls of the clients' companies, and from other public clouds. Migration towards and from VMware is a guarantee.
Yes. We have chosen HP because it's the worldwide number 1 in the server field and we've got 10+ years of experience with HP machines.
There are a couple of reasons:
  • At the moment there are no SSD disks on the market with appropriate archiving sizes
  • Telling to offer Cloud Servers on SSD disks is all smoke and mirrors, as the mere fact of using SSD disks does not imply great I/O performances, it tells only the technology being used. If an SSD storage is saturated by the elevated number of server requests, the performances will be closer to the ones of an old SATA disk.
  • Some providers use SSD disk only as a temporary cache for servers (like Microsoft Azure), some others use them as a storage cache. The offers are not clear!

COMPETITORS and PRICES
Stellar servers can be compared to the "Optimized Computing" c4 tier as far as CPU performances are concerned and to the "Optimized Storage" i2 series when it comes down to I/O disk performances.
Stellar servers can be compared to the D and G series (Optimized Computing).
Wrong!
When comparing the prices of the Stellar servers to the main cloud providers that describe well the kind of product they offer (Microsoft Azure and Amazon), Stellar server are almost 20% less expensive. If the comparison is made with the sales of server with 10 vCore for a few tens of Euros...then the comparison is completely deceptive and you're victim of a scam.

PURCHASE, DEVELOPMENT, TEST
It's technically possible, but Stellar servers are thought as production servers with guaranteed performances, so they don't have the price of the ones offered by cheap providers.
