The DAI platform consists of data centers, networks, blade servers, virtualization technology, and the operating systems. The data centers house DAI components, providing the base layer of protection from the elements and other physical threats. The network is redundant and designed with no single point of failure with bursting capabilities. You can choose from a variety of network access options, selecting the one that best meets your architecture requirements and security needs. The storage systems are engineered specifically for virtualized workloads; blade servers are employed to further reduce costs and minimize space. The DAI cloud service supports both the Windows and Linux operating systems and uses VMware as its virtualization technology. You can choose from a variety of virtual machine configurations based on CPU, memory, and storage specifications.
