How does Verge.io virtualization compare to legacy alternatives?
Today's IT workloads require agility and security that's difficult and expensive to achieve with legacy virtualization. The unit of virtualization, the machine, is too small.
An entire industry of convergence was layered on top of legacy virtualization in attempts to simplify it. It only did so in appearance.
The result is complexity upon complexity. It won't work for today's or tomorrow' workloads.
Tomorrow's workloads require a stack that's much more economical, scalable and less complex. It needs to Simplify IT.
Tomorrow's workloads will require that the entire data center is virtualized in one single, thin piece of software that gets the most out of the hardware with the least effort.
Verge.io is that software.
Reduce capital and operating expenses by over 50%. Increase your margins as a provider and expand your product line.
Scale incrementally to match demand for workload capacity. Just add more commodity servers.
One single, thin piece of software replaces many disparate vendors. One SKU, one bill, one dashboard, one API.
For some it's become too complex. It can require many different SKUs, with complex pricing and significant API integration to build out a virtualized data center. Recent M&A activity has also caused many to look for alternatives. For a more technical deep dive click here.
The inability to scale resources independently, pricing and continued complexity in product lineup have caused some to seek simpler, less expensive alternatives.
However, it takes a lot of expertise to set up and requires significant automation to really gain benefit. Some seek alternatives to deal with staffing challenges, automation challenges or for more remote private clouds.
It now suffers from some of the same issues as other legacy alternatives - it’s become so big and complex that it requires a lot of highly trained staff to use. Challenges are sprawl, run-away and complex billing and inability to run “in the field” outside their cloud causing people to seek alternatives.
Hyper-v is a hypervisor for CPU and memory. It does not provide virtualized storage or networking. A Hyper-v platform will require additional products and licenses to support the storage and networking. It can get complicated quickly if you want a very dense environment for the edge, or a highly scalable, reliable platform in a data center.
Verge.io has a built-in hypervisor based on QEMU/KVM that supports both Linux and Windows guests. Our hypervisor provides bare metal-like compute performance to your virtual machines and virtual data centers.
Our virtual SAN provides scale out architecture for massive data stores and NAS volumes. Using blockchain technology, your storage is encrypted, ultra-secure, and only increases when unique data is written, regardless of whether you clone a single VM or 100. Global deduplication, snapshotting and recovery are built into the storage, not add-ons, and impart almost no performance hit.
Verge.io includes a software-based delivery of tools and management for the full network management stack. Each network includes an integrated firewall and common network services.
Create independent, secure, nested virtual data centers. Each virtual data center can have its own compliance standards or can be cloned from a template to assure consistent compliance. Each tenant virtual data center is containerized and isolated so it can be moved from one Verge.io platform to another. Use tenancy to manage compliance, selling through channel or charge back needs.
One single license

why we're here
Founded and operated by people passionate about creating better IT through software, Verge.io imagines a future where IT staff and CFO’s get a break.
Reliable IT infrastructure has gotten too complex and too expensive. We believe dramatically better software is the solution.
We started from scratch. Ignored the siloes of today's IT stack. We imagined a single, powerful, thin piece of software on commodity hardware.
The result is composable IT infrastructure at a fraction of the cost, with increased agility and scalability.
“Verge.io makes staying in compliance easy. Recipes and clones assure that new virtual data centers match audited standards. The result is better use of our technology and a more secure profile, for less.”
"I truly have nothing but praise for Verge.io. I was originally unaware of the platform but willing to learn, and their support team was outstanding. They are more than competent in their roles and are genuinely willing to help you meet your objectives. Of course, the platform itself is robust and full-featured, but the incredible support team is why Verge.io is the only option for my virtualization needs.
“Since installing Verge.io, we’ve seen a 50% reduction in hardware and software costs, twice the monthly margin on each customer that converts, and at least a 30% reduction in daily support tasks for our customers.”
