Cloud economics and efficiencies in an enterprise-consumable package.
HYPER@scale is a bundled offering that includes the HPE Hyper Converged platforms for VMware and Greenqloud’s Qstack. The combination of these two technologies yields a ‘Cloud-in-a-Box’ solution based on proven HPE hardware technology and an award-winning Cloud Management Platform for automation.
The world we live in is moving fast. Regardless of industry, the amount of time it takes to bring a new product or service to market can determine winners and losers. As a result, the pressure is on IT to quickly turn ideas into reality while being cost effective in the process. Being able to shorten time-to-market and improve cost-efficiency have become prerequisites, but not all solutions fit the mold.
Public cloud offers simplicity and ease. Compute resources can be implemented almost instantly and you can pay-as-you-go. However, while public clouds such as AWS or Azure certainly have their advantages, they’re not the right solution for everything. For example, confidential data, intellectual property, and mission-critical applications are often most secure on premise or at a secure colo. In addition, public cloud cost can sky rocket as enterprises scale and outbound bandwidth increases.
Organizations need the speed and simplicity of the public cloud, but without the risk and highly-variable surcharges. Does such a solution exist? Yes, the answer can be found in CBT’s HYPER@scale – HPE’s Hyper Converged technologies combined with an award-winning Cloud Management Platform for automation.
HPE’s Hyper Converged offerings combine servers, storage, and virtualization into a single, integrated solution. Hyper convergence eases deployment, has flexibility more in tune with virtual environments and reduces the infrastructure costs compared to a traditional virtualization deployment. However, while hyper convergence excels in these areas, it does little more to help you realize the additional benefits of cloud computing. For that, automation is required. By integrating a Cloud Management platform on top of a hyper converged platform in HYPER@scale, CBT adds the necessary automation and removes much of the administrative burden via the self-service portal for consumers. This allows you to realize the benefits of cloud automation in a way that makes sense for your enterprise.
• Economics: administrator focus can be moved away from the virtualization platform due to the self-service nature of solution.
• Security: reduce shadow IT by allowing internal users to access private and public cloud capabilities, while doing so in a controlled, secure manner.
• Quality hardware: built on HPE’s industry-leading hardware to assure your critical business applications run on the highest-quality machines available.
• Location: hosted on customer premise (internal, private cloud) but can burst to public cloud.
• Management: orchestrated by Qstack – a comprehensive, easy-to-use, single-pane-of-glass management system from Greenqloud.

Swift access to all relevant asset information when and where it’s needed.
Asset mismanagement is a multi-billion-dollar problem. In fact, $750 billion dollars is spent every year in the US as a result of poor asset intelligence. Data related to assets is often disorganized and dispersed, costing the business in lost productivity, security and compliance risks, increased workplace errors and more.
CBT’s Asset Intelligence Platform (AIP) is an innovative solution that enables swift, actionable insight on all relevant asset information when and where needed. By combining field data capture, analytics and deep learning capabilities, AIP can significantly impact key performance indicators across the enterprise. AIP improves asset logistics, lifecycle and work order management, maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) and overall business efficiencies.
Big Data / Analytics
When big data becomes business practice, the experiment ends and the experience wins.
Data is the most valuable currency in the idea economy, where ideas that hit the market the fastest—win. Big data done right extracts value immediately to make customers happy, inform big decisions quickly, and find the waste and risk that should be eliminated first. The data-driven organization best accomplishes continuous improvement and is most capable of planning for success with predictive power.
CBT, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Geospatial Imaging Experts have partnered together bringing top of the line technologies creating your unique solutions to your unique problem areas. Utilizing HPE big data and analytics, we can impact key performance indicators across the enterprise with our Asset Intelligence Platform (AIP).

Your need for data storage is always growing — but your IT budget may not be. Perhaps you’ve been frustrated at how quickly you outgrow your existing and expensive storage arrays or servers. Historically, the only way to add capacity was a major investment in new hardware and software solutions or even a rip-and-replace of your existing storage infrastructure.
Software-Defined Storage (SDS) overcomes the typical capacity limits of traditional storage. As with all new and evolving technologies, you will find a variety of approaches for SDS. At CB Technologies we have a simple way to define it for our clients: an application-based and proven way to save you cash and internal resources — while rapidly expanding your ability to store data and content, saving you time, money and effort as you conduct your core business.
With SDS you can avoid investing hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of dollars in high-powered specialized storage area network (SAN) products and licenses.
Virtually unlimited scale, endless possibilities.

Education designed around the learner.
LEVERS (Learner Validated Educational Resources & Strategies) is a data system that supports improvements in competencies and program performance, so that learners can demonstrate they:
- Have learned how to learn
- Can plan and manage their own work
- Can make high quality products in a team
No one improves by accident or at random. All improvements result from intentional investment of time, talent and money. LEVERS allows both individuals (students and teachers) and program leaders to monitor and adjust these investments based on observable evidence.
LEVERS allows schools to bridge the gap between student performances expected in school (grades and test results) and in the world (skill and competency at work).
• LEVERS is the first and only system designed around the learner, for personalized, blended learning demonstrating mastery of critical competencies employers require.
• LEVERS goes beyond the limited skillset captured by test scores alone, to provide visibility to student improvements that school leaders and employers find most important.
• LEVERS applies Agile processes to education (SCRUM)—supporting transparency, inspection and adaptation. Students learn IT competencies using the same approach that IT employers use.
