SlapOS is a grid-operating system for managing cloud infrastructures. It was
built with the premise "everything is a service" and can automate
the build, provisioning, orchestration, configuration, monitoring, operation,
backup, recovery and billing (via ERP5) of any
service on any platform, making SlapOS an ideal solution for simplifying
and automating complex cloud infrastructres which often tend to grow
from manually managed to unmanageable as applications mature.
Another benefit of the process-based architecture of SlapOS is the possibility
to share a single server's resources (RAM, CPU, even libraries) across multiple
users and applications. SlapOS thereby reduces the need to build large data
centers by aggregating computing resources present in a network as if thery were
provided by a single machine. The result is a significantly higher
capacity utilization per server along with lower maintenance cost compared
to traditional cloud providers. This architecture also supports scaling
both horizontally (more servers) and vertically (more resources per server)
out-of-box making SlapOS ideal for high computational tasks and the most
Nexedis re6st software component uses the latest edge computing technologies
to mitigate connectivity issues for low-latency applications (requiring fast
response times), while the risk of connection loss (electricity failure or
hardware failure) is handled by the SlapOS disaster recovery stack. This component
continually tests the ability to rebuild and restore any application and its data
on multiple remote infrastructures on a daily basis and automatically switches
to another location in case of a connection loss making SlapOS
an ideal solution even for strict disaster recovery policies.
Nexedi is using this setup for its own infrastructre spanning multiple
continents to ensure and continually improve stability and system availabilty
for its own applications.
SlapOS can be installed fully automated on any device
(server, desktop, smartphone), operating system (Linux, Windows, Android)
and virtual machine (VMWare, OpenStack, Amazon, Azure, Joyent, etc.). It
includes business processes (through ERP5) allowing to easily add extensions
such as user management and invoicing, allowing to easily setup and host
IAAS (infrastructure), PAAS (platform) and SAAS (Software) service solutions
at a fraction of the cost of comparable cloud providers. With a fully
open source codebase.
SlapOS can automate the deployment and configuration of applications in a
heterogenous environment managing provisioning of instances, accounting and
billing information through a portal that also can handle customer registration,
support request management, invoicing and payments.
Nexedi provides implemenation and support services based on SlapOS and ERP5 to
integrate powerful accouting and billing to existing cloud computing technologies
(OpenStack, OpenNebula, Eucalyptus, VMWare, etc.) either for internal audits
or commercial applications. If you operate more than 20 instances of the same
application or more than 10 servers, SlapOS is for you and will help turn
your software application into a solid SaaS in less than a week.
Sample success cases like multinational companies providing
a common and consistent implementation of their business application across overseas
subsidiaries or software publishers quickly creating proprietory SaaS solutions
can be found on the Nexedi website success
stories section. For more information on SlapOS scalable and reliable cloud
