CloudByte Inc.,the technology leader in enterprise storage, today announced the launch of ElastiStor 1.1 (Beta), to meet the storage demandsof new-age datacenters which host hundreds of applications with diverse workloads. ElastiStor 1.1 boasts of several industry-first features, including QoS-configurable storage endpoints and on-demand storage provisioning, which offer tremendous cost savings and drastically simplified management to enterprises and CSPs.
“We’re delighted to launch the next-generation storage product by baking in advanced technologies of virtualization and software-defined intelligence,” said Felix Xavier, CTO and Founder, CloudByte. “At CloudByte, we are constantly working towards making storage a lot more intelligent, flexible, fully shared, easily manageable, and ready to handle thousands of applications and their varying performance demands with a single click.”
QoS-Configurable Storage Endpoints Help Reduce Storage TCOby 80-90%
For the first time ever, ElastiStor brings QoS-configuration to storage endpoints i.e., each storage LUN can now be configured in terms of capacity, IOPS, throughput and latency. This allows applications with diverse workloads to be guaranteed QoS right from a shared storage platform. Together with linear scaling, a single extensible shared storage platform from ElastiStor can replace legacy solutions’ dedicated storage islands. By un-fragmenting storage islands and optimallyutilizing resources, ElastiStor requires a much lower storage footprint, leading to 80-90% cost savings over three years.
Ease of Management with On-Demand Provisioning and vCenter like Administration
ElastiStor delivers storage provisioning as a service by intelligently automating node selection and resource allocation, based on an application’s performance demands. Further, ElastiStor cluster with hundreds of applications, spanning across multiple sites can be managed from a single web-based console. ElastiStor console allows admins to monitor, manage, and control storage resource usage at application-level granularity within shared storage – a capability that’s technically impossible with legacy storage architecture.Learn more about ElastiStor features at www.cloudbyte.com/products_features.aspx
CloudByte Empowers Cloud Service Providers to Compete with AWS
With AWS announcing IOPS guarantee, other CSPs need a cost-effective way to guarantee IOPS, throughput and latency to performance-sensitive applications. Legacy storage solutions result in prohibitive cost structure as they require dedicated storage per application. ElastiStor delivers tailoredQoS to every application right from shared storage, enabling CSPs to profitably offer a superior service. Within shared storage, applications are isolated at all storage stack levels for full security.In addition, ElastiStor offers delegated administration and REST APIs – much requested features from CSPs to reduce their management overhead.
CloudByte Delivers Customizable,Scalable and Reliable Datacenters to Enterprises
ElastiStor brings unprecedented customizability and scalability to enterprise datacenters with its software-only and software-defined storage solution. With zero-proprietary hardware and OpenStorage, ElastiStor frees enterprises from any proprietary lock-in, allowing them to custom-build infrastructure based on their requirements, whether it’s SATA, SAS or SSD. Software-defined, ElastiStor allows admins to easily scale by breaking the need for hardwiring storage controllers and disks to configure desired performance for any application. Further, CloudByte delivers n-way HA for mission critical applications, exponentially increasing their uptime compared to legacy solutions’ 2-way HA. CloudByte ElastiStor is Citrix Ready, certified for Xen Server 6.0 and CloudPlatform 2.x and 3.x.
CloudByte Expands US Operations
Felix Xavier, CTO and Founder, CloudByte has moved to the Campbell, California office earlier this month to head US operations. Felix is a seasoned leader with over 15 years of development and technology management experience. With the right blend of expertise in both networking and storage technologies, he helped ideate CloudByte’s vision. Most recently, Felix helped NetApp gain leadership position in storage array based data protection, by driving innovations around its product suite. CloudByte has also recently hired sales architects and engineers from NetApp to drive CloudByte ElastiStor sales in North America.
