Datera Announces Next-Generation Elastic Data Fabric to Simplify Data Storage for Enterprise and Service Providers


Datera Continues to Elevate the Data Storage Landscape by Enabling Continuous and Faster App Delivery, Massive Scalability and Price-Performance Flexibility for all Apps and Infrastructure Stacks

Sunnyvale, CA – Sept. 27, 2016—Datera, the application-driven data infrastructure company, today announced new enhancements to its Datera Elastic Data Fabric™ 2.0 platform. Datera has developed the industry’s leading universal data platform that supports any application, on any orchestration stack, at any scale. Enterprises and service providers rely on Datera to build large-scale, fully-automated private and public clouds for faster application delivery with industry-leading economic flexibility and shorter time to market.

Datera Elastic Data Fabric 2.0 brings major advances in data storage and management. Enterprise IT departments running a wide range of traditional enterprise applications or cloud-native workloads can now consolidate their application silos on one universal data infrastructure that automatically adapts to their business needs.

Datera Elastic Data Fabric is VMware Ready for Storage™ certified with VAAI support and integrated with vCenter for provisioning and vRealize for cloud scaling. This enables automated, highly performant and cost-effective private cloud implementations for packaged enterprise applications such as Microsoft SQL, Exchange and Sharepoint as well as home-grown virtualized applications on MySQL.

In addition, Datera also announced integration with Mesosphere DC/OS, enabling seamless scalability and rapid self-provisioning for container-based cloud deployments for modern applications built on Cassandra, MongoDB and other NoSQL databases. Datera Elastic Data Fabric is already integrated with Docker Swarm and Kubernetes for cloud-native applications.

Cloud operators and application owners can eliminate silos and deliver a wide price/performance band from the underlying storage infrastructure with one rapidly provisioned, automated platform while reducing costs by up to 75%. Datera Elastic Data Fabric is expanding its support for a wide variety of multi-generational industry standard servers with different storage media, including all-flash and hybrid models.

“Datera gives enterprise cloud operators, DevOps teams and application owners flexible storage that seamlessly adapts to ever-changing business demands,” said Marc Fleischmann, founder and CEO at Datera. “With Datera Elastic Data Fabric 2.0, enterprise cloud operators get an automated storage platform that fits a rich spectrum of applications. DevOps teams can use one coherent data infrastructure for all major container ecosystems with the ability to provision infrastructure-as-code. Application owners can simply describe the needs of their applications and let the data infrastructure do the hard work.”

Datera Accolades

“The market interest in software-defined data centers continues to grow,” said Henry Baltazar, storage research director for 451 Research. “Having an agile way to scale storage has become a necessity for any growing company with a digital component. Datera’s platform understands applications and infrastructure in the datacenter and has the ability to automatically make changes based on business requirements. Datera’s platform could appeal to enterprises which are looking to expand quickly and minimize costs.”

“Intelligent data infrastructure is evolving. Advances in big data analysis have refined our understanding of what data centers need to do,” said Jeff Kato, senior storage analyst at Taneja Group. “Bulky, siloed storage isn’t sustainable. Software-defined elastic data fabric enables companies to provision and deploy their apps more quickly and reliably than ever. Datera continues to elevate the data storage landscape by moving siloed infrastructures to continuous data infrastructure molded to the applications using smart software.”

Datera Elastic Data Fabric 2.0 enhancements include:

  •      Support for all flash nodes, building on existing support for hybrid nodes
  •      Integration with Support for VMware’s VAAI, and integration with vSphere and vRealize suites
  •      Expanding dynamic cloud integration with support for CloudStack and CloudPlatform, along with existing OpenStack support
  •      Integration with Mesosphere DC/OSe, expanding existing Docker Swarm and Kubernetes container orchestrator integrations
  •      Improved scalability: up to 50 nodes with a total of five petabytes and five million IOPs per single cluster
  •      Rich Data Services: Data Compression and Data At Rest Encryption
  •      Multi-tenant storage management for enterprise applications, modern cloud architecture (DevOps, containers and microservices) and data clouds (for streaming analytics and big data applications)
  •      Expanding the hardware support to include Dell Poweredge R-Class servers, building on existing support with SuperMicro servers
  •      Expanded Business Models: Rack ready storage appliance, Perpetual SW License, or pay as you go OPEX model
