Route forward for ClusterHQ’s Flocker customers: free transition to OpenStack platform based on Sardina FishOS

ESTONIA, Tallinn // January 12, 2017 – Sardina Systems has announced free transition process to OpenStack platform to all ClusterHQ customers. Following the unexpected announcement on 22 December 2016 that the container storage vendor ClusterHQ is shutting down their operations immediately, Sardina Systems has decided to offer continuity to ClusterHQ customers a free transition path to Sardina FishOS, built on OpenStack, the most popular open source cloud management platform.

Building on OpenStack’s extensive foundation, FishOS is the world’s first energy-optimizing and utilization-improving OpenStack automation system. FishOS provides a flexibly pluggable, highly-available cloud resource management architecture for enabling a wide variety of automation and data access methods, scaling to thousands of servers, improving utilization and lowering costs.

“We appreciate some customers’ apprehension regarding continuity and support following the unfortunate demise of ClusterHQ. To provide customers with a route forward, we are offering transition to Sardina FishOS. This would enable customers to rapidly enjoy the values of higher efficiency and improved facility utilization, in addition to OpenStack’s extensive capabilities trusted by broad ranges of customers,” said Anna Panchenko, VP of Marketing, Sardina Systems.

Sardina Systems is capable of addressing and supporting most of the ClusterHQ’s Flocker product feature set and can even put at disposal new features designed to overcome containers’ limitations and make the customer’s life much easier: access to live migration and data assurance support, while driving down TCO.

Bringing a full life-cycle view to OpenStack operations -- encompassing deployment, operation, and upgrade phases -- are now ordinary daily operations with Sardina FishOS.

In addition to greater application agility, customers can also benefit from FishOS’ innovative solution for increased operational efficiency and greater service reliability, while leveraging FishOS’ unique zero-downtime upgrade, designed to achieve uptime assurance with each new OpenStack release upgrade.
