ArcLight LUMOS is a new approach for your IT infrastructure. A LUMOS environment eliminates the high upfront capital expense associated with purchasing conventional new or replacement servers and workstations by employing LUMOS Cloud Servers to host virtualized servers and workstations. Each LUMOS Cloud Server is a complete system consisting of processing capacity (CPU, memory), advanced storage and virtualization technologies. You can start with one or two LUMOS Cloud Server nodes and then add additional nodes as more processing and storage capacity is needed. Multiple LUMOS Cloud Server nodes combine to form a highly redundant and high failure-tolerant computing grid. With built-in business continuity and data protection features, ArcLight LUMOS is a private (on-site) cloud solution that provides all of the benefits of a 21st century IT infrastructure, but at a predictable and affordable monthly price.
ArcLight LUMOS is a highly versatile solution. You can migrate your entire current server and workstation infrastructure to the LUMOS environment or gradually migrate over time, system-by-system. Do you prefer to maintain your current conventional servers for now? ArcLight also offers LUMOS Clone Servers, which are a specially-configured LUMOS Cloud Servers that act as on-site “hot spare” failover servers. In the event of a sudden server failure, this stand-by server is at the ready to take over all server functions; the transition is seamless and typically takes less than an hour to complete. With a LUMOS Clone Server in place, primary server failure need not have a devastating impact on your business operations.

- Windows 7
- Windows Vista
- Windows 2000
- Windows XP
- Windows Server 2008

In Summary — Why LUMOS?
Enjoy the Cloud Benefits from a highly flexible and extensible private cloud solution that optimizes resources. As an Out-of-the-Box Solution, LUMOS includes all the necessary components to provide infrastructure virtualization, business continuity, and network storage.
LUMOS is an Affordable and cost-effective approach that allows you to build out a private cloud for today and expand that cloud in the future. LUMOS allows you to retain your same investment without starting over with new hardware or software every time you need to upgrade.
LUMOS is Reliable. Data is written to LUMOS Cloud Servers in ways that only a portion of the original data is required in order to reconstruct the original data. With protection down to the byte level, you can be confident that your data is protected from incidental or accidental corruption. LUMOS environments are built to withstand the loss of anywhere from two to seven hard drives. An entire cloud server node can be replaced without scheduling system downtime or affecting user productivity.
LUMOS is an On-site private cloud infrastructure that you deploy locally in your office. By brining datacenter technology to the office, your users can experience the benefits of cloud computing while retaining complete control over your information.
LUMOS Aurora adds an integrated and complete Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery solution. For true disaster recovery additional copies of your data must be available in multiple locations. With the LUMOS Aurora add-on, LUMOS can create encrypted transportable mirror files for Off-site Replication to one or more remote datacenters.
ArcLight LUMOS is the all-in-one IT infrastructure solution for the 21st century.
