Simplicity at Scale for Cloud Architectures

Recent years have seen a fundamental shift in the way data centers are being deployed and managed by enterprises and hosted service providers. One trend in particular has disrupted traditional approaches to data center administration – the growing adoption of private and public clouds.

Private Clouds

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.

Overview

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.

Public Clouds

Service providers need differentiation and viable economics

In order to stay ahead of the competition, service providers need to be able to offer customers a differentiated set of service offerings built on a business model that makes financial sense.
In order to achieve this, service providers require underlying infrastructure that has:

  • Superior price-performance
  • Ease of management
  • Flexibility to handle customers’ diverse needs
  • Predictable scalability
