We're building the world's thinnest, fastest edge-to-core hyperconverged platform. Datacenter hyperconverged stacks eat up memory and CPU resources, making it impossible to deploy on small edge servers. According to ESG, Sunlight is approximately 81% more CPU efficient and 98% more RAM efficient than industry leading hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solutions - and it runs on both x86 and Arm CPUs. This means you can get all the benefits of hyperconverged on small edge servers.
