The Sunlight Dashboard, a component of NexVisor HCI, provides a graphical management interface onto any Sunlight cluster - including resource-limited Edge clusters. It provides Highly Available local resource management on a single pain of glass. Manage all of your VMs on a local Sunlight cluster, with fine-grained control of your resources.

Ease of use

  • Single pain of glass
  • Graphical UI
  • Deploy and manage resources across compute, storage and networking

Flexibility and control

  • Resource groups provide control to meet VM requirements
  • Ultra fine-grained control of performance when needed or simplicity when not needed
  • Maximum utilisation of constrained Edge resources

Highly Available by default

  • Stay in control of resources at all times.
  • Dashboard automatically failsover in the event of server failure
  • Manage Edge resources, even when disconnected

Easy to implement and manage

Sunlight is easy to install - the complete Sunlight HCI stack can be installed on a bare-metal server in 10 minutes, or on-demand in AWS. AWS AMIs are binary compatible - so can be migrated instantaneously. Sunlight is easy to manage - it includes a full dashboard that allows you to manage all aspects of your Sunlight cluster, including fine-grained control of CPU, storage and network configuration and performance. The dashboard is installed as part of the HCI stack and is highly-available by design across the cluster.


Sunlight is designed with security at its core. All components of the Sunlight stack are hardened. Thanks to Sunlight’s fine grained CPU and memory allocation it is possible to physically guard against CPU memory exploits. Control of IO interfaces allows you to separate content and network traffic so there is no sharing of physical drives or network physical interfaces. Data can be encrypted at rest through hardware acceleration

Low Cost

Sunlight is priced on a per-node basis - no penalties for high core-density CPUs. Sunlight is available as a monthly or annual subscription (or hourly subscription in AWS).
