NexVisor Hypervisor, a component of Sunlight HyperConverged Edge (HCE), is a Type 1 Hypervisor built from the ground-up to support today’s high performance hardware technologies with almost zero overhead. Legacy hypervisors such as VMware, Xen and KVM impose a 70%+ virtualisation tax for high-performance IO peripherals - such as fast networking and NVMe storage. Sunlight delivers the full performance of these technologies to your workload - maximising your hardware investment. Sunlight can run on low-power edge devices. Sunlight makes it simple to migrate VMs from other hypervisors such as VMware, and runs AWS AMIs natively.

Bare metal performance

  • Remove the 70%+ virtualisation tax
  • 1M IOPS+ per fully-virtualised instance out of the box
  • Supports the fastest NVMe and network hardware
Bare metal performance

Compact footprint

  • Highly efficient resource usage perfect for edge use cases
  • 500MB memory footprint for entire HCE stack
  • 1/100 the footprint of VMware HCE stack
Compact footprint

Highly available

  • Fast, automated failover of VMs
  • Server, rack & availability zone-level HA policies
  • Automated cluster controller failover

Easy to implement and manage

Sunlight HyperConverged Edge is easy to install - the complete Sunlight HCE stack can be installed on bare-metal servers in minutes. Sunlight is easy to manage - it includes the Edge Stack Console 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 HCE stack and is highly-available by design across the cluster.

Easy to implement and manage

Highly Available

Sunlight is highly available, delivering fail-over and redundancy for mission-critical applications at the edge. Eliminate downtime and lower the cost of servicing remote locations by moving break-fix to regular business hours and with lower cost SLAs.


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.

Low Cost

Sunlight is priced for edge economics, with flexible terms on a per-node basis.
