Scalable private clouds require scale-out storage infrastructure
In order to deal with the rapid growth of data in recent years, enterprises are increasingly adopting data center-scale private cloud architectures for the flexibility, simplicity and economy of scale they offer.
In order to fully realize the benefits of private cloud adoption though, the underlying infrastructure needs to be simple, scalable and cost effective.
IT administrators need to rethink their storage architecture if they want to truly realize the benefits of private cloud adoption.
outpace.IO A series offers a viable alternative to legacy storage for private cloud deployments.
Legacy storage infrastructure is complex, inflexible and expensive, and cannot be scaled with predictable performance.
Scaling capacity in storage infrastructure built on controller-based storage systems requires ripping and replacing controllers, and upgrading software licenses on the appliances an expensive and inefficient proposition.
As more shelves are added behind a storage controller, performance degrades, often unpredictably. IT organizations are either unable to honor SLA commitments, or overcommit resources to guarantee performance.
The outpace.IO family of products offers flexible, scale-out storage that delivers better performance than Fibre Channel SANs with commodity hardware economics.
A Series storage arrays have true scale-out capabilities and provide an attractive alternative to controller-based storage architectures, growing to multiple petabytes without expensive forklift upgrades.
outpace.IO actively supports open storage architectures.
outpace.IO A series is a one-tier-for-all scale-out block storage system on which administrators can deploy specific storage virtualization devices, file systems, object storage platforms and applications to meet their needs.
These higher-level appliances can access a single pool of block storage at the backend which can be scaled with minimal effort as needs grow.
