Infinitely Virtual Takes the Wraps Off E.V.E. 3.0 - Ambitious Revamp of Cloud Industry's Most Advanced Infrastructure

Cloud hosting pioneer Infinitely Virtual announced the most ambitious update of E.V.E. - the company's proprietary Enterprise Virtualization Environment - in its history, built around a series of enhancements that, when complete, will massively upgrade its infrastructure as E.V.E. 3.0.

First out of the gate is VMware vSphere 6.5 - which is available now - followed over the next several months by Netapp SnapCenter and VSC9.6, and, in short order, by vCloudDirector 9.1 and NSX 6.4.4, the new Juniper SRX, SkyATP and finally, AMD EPYC Rome Processors.

VMware's vSphere 6.5 is the next-generation infrastructure for next-generation applications.  It provides a powerful, flexible, and secure foundation for business agility that accelerates the digital transformation to cloud computing and promotes success in the digital economy.  vSphere 6.5 supports both existing and next-generation apps through its simplified customer experience for automation and management at scale; comprehensive built-in security for protecting data, infrastructure, and access; and  universal application platform for running any app anywhere.  With vSphere 6.5, users can now run, manage, connect, and secure their applications in a common operating environment, across clouds and devices.

Taken together, the additional capabilities in E.V.E. 3.0 will significantly bolster security, uptime, data protection, NetApp code - in sum, Infinitely Virtual's entire environment, according to company CEO Adam Stern.

"Believing that a status quo mindset doesn't serve users in a cloud marketplace that is increasingly volatile and less secure, we raise the bar as a matter of course," Stern said.  "That translates to our continuous investment in proven new technologies to ensure that customers benefit from the most advanced hosting environment in the industry.  We have been doing this since 2006, and with these ongoing improvements, customers don't pay more - they simply get a better system, whether in terms of resources or software or both."

As the latest enhancements demonstrate, E.V.E. continues to evolve as new technologies and products are released.  "We select best-in-class solutions for each component in the environment, implementing data center, networking and VMware best practices at every level," Stern said.  "In this, its third iteration, E.V.E. remains a conceptual model of our state-of-the-art virtualization infrastructure."

E.V.E. was designed with several goals in mind:

  • 100 percent customer uptime
  • Near-physical server performance
  • Absolute data protection
  • Support for high value custom services
  • Industry cost leadership
  • Industry environmental leadership

E.V.E. consists of three major layers, each made up of four sub-layers.  Each layer and sub-layer represents a basic building block of the environment.  The major layers, from the bottom up, include the Physical Layer, the Network, Server and Storage Layer and the Virtualization Layer.
