Delivering the Cloud Operating Model to Edge Infrastructure, Globally
Sunlight.io turns every location into a micro-cloud, where any legacy or new service can be consolidated onto a single, highly available, small footprint and ruggedised stack of hardware. The Ori platform simplifies workload provisioning across public, telco, hybrid, and multi-cloud infrastructures to support countless enterprise and consumer needs.
The joint Ori x Sunlight solution can be managed remotely as one distributed cloud from a central management dashboard — allowing applications to be deployed and managed across any enterprise or edge location, seamlessly.
Why run Sunlight and Ori?
Infrastructure management is increasingly complex for enterprises on their digital transformation journey. Together, Ori Industries & Sunlight make edge infrastructure and application deployments as easy as in the cloud.
Leverage Sunlight’s all-in-one compute, storage & networking, and centralised application deployment & management, coupled with Ori Global Edge to fully automate the end-to-end deployment of edge applications. Major benefits:
- Consolidate: Cut costs by consolidating all of your in-location edge applications onto a single highly-available hardware stack with full isolation, security and high availability
- Automate: Speed up time-to-market and cut support burden by standardising application deployments across your locations using ready-built or custom application recipes in the Sunlight marketplace
- Innovate: Increase pace of innovation by making it easy to deploy and update new applications across all your edge locations from a central management dashboard
Delivering Next Generation Retail
While these capabilities can level the playing field for multiple verticals, retail in particular can benefit given how it has evolved in recent years. Quick Service Retail (QSR) has needed to get fast and personal: quick service restaurants are experiencing a surge in post-COVID innovation as customer buying behaviours have changed forever. Customers increasingly demand a better customer experience — from personalisation, to contactless ordering and paying, to smart drive-throughs with pick-up times measured in seconds, all with highly consistent food quality.
New AI-driven smart applications are appearing that can help deliver on these needs. The bad news is that all these new capabilities mean more IT systems that have to be installed and managed at each location. This leads to high infrastructure costs, more pressure on valuable floor-space, and increased reliance on expensive IT skills to keep things running. What if you could accelerate application delivery across all your locations, whilst minimising infrastructure costs, and reducing complexity?
Sunlight makes performance possible anywhere — from the cloud to the edge. Sunlight’s HCI stack makes applications like AI, Big Data, Analytics and Rendering run 3x faster compared to legacy virtualisation, and because Sunlight has a tiny footprint, it’s perfect for the edge. Enterprises and MSPs use Sunlight to cut the costs of delivering high performance IT by 70%.
Ori Industries is laying the foundation for the global rollout of distributed cloud services. The company’s orchestration platform simplifies workload provisioning across public, hybrid, and multi-cloud infrastructures to support countless enterprise and consumer use cases.
The joint solution can help enterprises manage their IT infrastructure remotely as one distributed cloud from a central management dashboard — allowing applications to be deployed and managed across any enterprise or edge location, seamlessly.
