Instant cloning and templating

The future of cloud hosting.

INSTANT CLONING AND TEMPLATING

Joviam’s Software-Defined Storage (SDS) platform enables online snapshotting and cloning of block devices, meaning that disks currently in use are able to be cloned live with no downtime. The clone is performed at the block layer almost instantly and can be immediately mounted. This allows for ‘point-in-time’ snapshots or rapid scaling out of multiple machines from a clone template.

The ability to live clone potentially hundreds of machines from a ‘master server template’ with little to no downtime is particularly conducive to agile front-end developments and DevOps teams pursuing faster production/delivery cycles with as minimal costs and configuration as possible.
