Felix, during his tenure at a major storage vendor working with some of the largest service providers, noted that there is a difference in the way storage technologies are being utilized by service providers and traditional enterprises. Traditional enterprise storage was inadequate to meet the requirement for intelligent, grid-like storage. Corporate storage was purpose-built to be dedicated and tuned to each specific enterprise application; so, multiple applications required multiple storage environments.
Storage technology of this kind, called public-corporate cloud is the best-fit for today’s requirements.Several leading service providers and large organizations,like NTT, Netmagic, Sony and others have been relying upon CloudByte solutions for their storage needs.
Bringing a Difference to the Storage Space
The CloudByte products provide service-provider and enterprise-grade storage functionality, cloud scalability, and efficient management at scale, thereby bringing in a difference to the industry. The two most prominent products from CloudByte are CloudByte ElastiStorTM and ElastiCenterTM.
ElastiStor is purpose-built for cloud as well as virtualized environments, and is a full-featured storage software product. ElastiStor enables dynamically selectable performance to every single application or tenant by constantly analyzing and adjusting key storage performance features such as IOPS, throughput, and latency.
ElastiCenter, a management console, is able to manage all ElastiStor nodes, even spread across multiple data centers, from a single pane of glass. Moreover, through this management console, vital information such as storage capacity, actual storage performance, and the storage performance available for allocation can be viewed and changed.
CloudByte’s unique approach enables guaranteed performance from a shared storage platform
CloudByte storage offers numerous benefits. The most appreciable benefit is the ability to set-up an enterprise-grade cloud infrastructure, which eliminates the typical “noisy neighbor” problem where one customer or application impacts the performance of others. In addition, it is possible to meet end-customers’ needs through definitions made entirely within software rather than data copying and migration among hardware-dependent performance tiers.
Expanding into a Great Future
The firm, based in Cupertino, CA with offices in Bangalore, plans to establish themselves as trustworthy enterprise-class storage vendors and build a highly reference based, service provider space. Also, collaborating with specific partners, there are attempts to build a global storage cloud infrastructure through establishment of open cloud standards along with advanced storage and networking technology.
