Overview

Our ecosystem is a highly integrated hardware and software. Security is native and ingrained within our software with extensive security. Z-IMPACT HCI solutions are a true blend of advanced software and hardware contained within an ecosystem. We leverage a proven hardened operating system iPulse OS, running our Z-IMPACT Fluid Enterprise Architecture (FEA). Our Cloud Engine FEA provides our clients with XaaS (Everything as a service), SDDC, SDx adapters including Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) with advanced firewall and encryption solutions to ensure your applications and user environments meet or exceed High Trust / HIPAA and GDPR requirements.

To leverage our advanced software, you need truly advanced hardware solutions that can process high-speed data, heavy batch loads, provide Synchronous and Asynchronous replication site to site, in addition process the heavy workloads that near real-time replication creates.

Z-IMPACT Hyperconverged Ecosystems are able to easily handle these insane interactive or batch intensive workloads and process data in-step with our built-in high-speed post queue replication to maintain our non-stop 100% availability. We spent over four years engineering, developing and designing our Hyperconverged Ecosystem to ensure all IO bottlenecks have been removed and operate in Z-Flash with no conventional storage or SAN. We leveraged our extensive background in security, using our white hat hacker and military backgrounds to ensure our operating system is not only hardened, its secure.

We further harden our Ecosystem with secured role-based portal access to key systems within the Ecosystem. We provide a secured portal to our clients to enable them to run iCanvas, creating applications and virtual infrastructure with hardened security solutions and BCP/DR to deploy to their DEV, QA/UAT and PROD environments running within our Cloud Engine.

Customers can then deploy their application and workloads in a Z-IMPACT Cloud (Z-CLOUD), AWS or Azure clouds. With Z-CLOUD they continue to run on our iStormCloud Ecosystems, still operating under our advanced FEA BCP/DR and data replication solution to establish DR / HA across the global spectrum.

Customer applications solutions may be deployed into extreme remote offices or edge points.  Since, we ensure our clients can obtain true BCP/DR at distances greater than 1800 miles. Competitive solutions like (AWS or Azure) running on much slower legacy infrastructure must rely on their HA / DR solutions without BCP and your applications are exposed.

Additionally, if your organization is not comfortable in creating next generation applications, let our R&D team develop or migrate your applications using our on-shore or offshore resources.  We can create your next generation cloud solution, tuned to run on the world’s fastest most secure and only true Enterprise-Class Hyperconverged Ecosystem in the market.

Once on the Z-IMPACT Hyperconverged Ecosystem, your company will no longer suffer through painful migrations to next generation technology and software.  We offer free migrations to our next generation hardware and software once you have invested in the Z-IMPACT Hyperconverged Ecosystem.  Our future migrations happen seamlessly, painlessly and allow the business to operate in a risk-free IT Infrastructure – with true zero impact to your end users.

 

iSoftware

Hardened. Predictive. Instantaneous. Self-Healing. Provisioning. Embedded. Mitigates Software Add-ons. Leverage Open Source. Trouble-Free Operation. Operational Technology (OT) Resilient Always On Availability…

Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) designed for the Z-IMPACT ecosystem with security, energy efficiency and non-stop availability in mind. The Operating System sits on top a dynamic architecture and orchestrates the interaction of the ecosystem. Data Center Efficiencies (DCiE), complete integration of the ecosystem depicting a true single-pane-of-glass computing solution with global synchronicity of all iStormCloud Appliances from the Enterprise Data Center to the EDGE deployments.

Z-IMPACT software is designed for the environment with security, energy efficiency and 100% availability in mind. The iPulseTM OS was originally developed in 2016 to unify the iStormCloud Ecosystem. Recently updated, in 2018 iPulseTM OS v2 IronRock (OS 17.02), that sits on top a dynamic Fluid Enterprise ArchitectureTM (FEA) and integrated into the iStormCloud Ecosystem.

Scalability

The biggest obstacle to scaling is security. The Z-IMPACT ecosystem is architected with extensive security throughout. Our ecosystem is a highly integrated appliance and software environment. Z-IMPACT HCI solutions are a true blend of advanced software and appliance contained within a ecosystem. We leverage a proven hardened operating system iPulse OS, running our Z-IMPACT Cloud Engine, providing our clients with XaaS (Everything as a service), SDDC, SDxx including VDI with advanced firewall and encryption solutions to ensure your applications and user environments meet or exceed HighTrust / HIPAA and GDPR requirements.

iCanvas

We provide a secured portal to our clients to enable them to run iCanvas AI, creating applications and virtual infrastructure with hardened security solutions and BCP/DR to deploy to their DEV, QA/UAT and PROD environments running within our Cloud Engine. Customers can then deploy their application and workloads in a Z-IMPACT Cloud (Z-CLOUD), AWS, or Azure clouds. With Z-CLOUD, they continue to run on our iStormCloud ecosystems, still operating under our advanced FEA BCP/DR and data replication solution to establish DR / HA across the global spectrum. Customer applications solutions may be deployed into extreme remote offices or edge points. Since we ensure our clients can obtain true BCP/DR at distances greater than 1800 miles. Competitive solutions like (AWS or Azure) running on much slower legacy infrastructure must rely on their HA / DR solutions without BCP, and your applications are exposed. Additionally, if your organization is not comfortable in creating next-generation applications, let the Z-IMPACT R&D team develop or migrate your applications using our on-shore or offshore resources. We can create your next-generation AI cloud solution, tuned to run on the world’s fastest most secure and only true enterprise-class hyperconverged ecosystem in the market.

iPulse

iPulse facilitates load-balancing and instantaneous provisioning of hardware in-flight – required resources are idle (off) or active (on) –  as Data Center application workloads fluctuate. The appliance configurations are based upon application workload demands that react to new business climate changes in seconds, while balancing the hardware utilization via a round-robin approach to increase the life of the ecosystem and improve MTBF ratios. We utilize Docker DevOps for Rapid IT service delivery accelerating faster-times-to-market.

Z-IMPACT, unlike other hyperconverged companies working on conventional hardware, applies our Agile XaaS Platform Mesh, interacts via the Software-Defined-Data-Center (SDDC), SDx adapters (Storage, network, hypervisor infrastructure) combine powerful governance and security controls technology to state-of-the-art appliances.

The objective of Z-IMPACT software computing services is to provide resource and process management at the lowest possible cost per appliance workload.

Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM)

DCIM is primarily concerned with resource and process management. Do you have enough space and power in the right place for new application rollout? Are the provisioning, remediation, and decommissioning workflows the correct ones? This is what  facilities manager are typically concerned.

Our software understands the visibility of the real-time status of energy usage and cooling effectiveness is important just as are the workload capabilities required to manage and plan for the capacity of workloads as they require more or less resources as well as new workloads introduced and what resource requirements  they introduce – what-if scenarios. Job one is to provide an environment that enables continuing, trouble-free operation and is always tuned to the optimal configurations to manage the infrastructure coming online or going offline as required throughout the data center floor.

Z-IMPACT can also extend this to a Hybrid Cloud model where as your on-premise solution begins to require more resources the Cloud can  begin to take on this increased capacity requirements under a peak load or seasonal event.

iDRACS

iDRACS is an advanced Disaster Recovery and Continuity Solutions.  iDRACS ensures your data is replicated to its target sites, it also ensures it remains in-sync to ensure your business survivability.  AWS or AZURE cannot give you this.  Their solutions lack true BCP capabilities. In addition Z-IMPACT leverages  advanced caching solutions all running on top of the world’s most Secure OS: iPulseTM OS v2 IronRock (OS 17.02).

Open-Source

Z-IMPACT utilizes open-source software as a foundation and then heavily modifies the software to tightly unify the hardware and software ecosystem, merging Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT). We support these communities while investing and contributing to Open Source community. We also have embedded replication, backup, BCP, DR failover, security, power management and load-balancing software built into the iPulse OS and the FEA architecture mitigating additional software purchases required by our customers.
