Maxta Founder Presents on Software-Defined Storage at SNIA's Data Storage Innovation Conference

SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Yoram Novick, founder, president and CEO of Maxta, a developer of the VM-centric storage platform MxSP™ that turns standard servers into a converged compute and storage solution for virtualized environments, will present on software-defined storage at the inaugural Data Storage Innovation Conference (DSI), produced by the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA), April 22-24 in Santa Clara, Calif.

Novick will speak to IT decision-makers, technology implementers, and those who influence, implement and support data storage innovation about the software-defined platform, how it works to simpify IT, and how it achieves cost savings. His talk will be on April 24 at 2:05pm.

"Users today can architect their storage infrastructure to eliminate storage management and storage arrays altogether with a platform that integrates and delivers compute and storage power on the same pool of commodity hardware," said Novick. "This new model offers compelling savings,investment protection and simplification since there is only one abstracted system to manage versus isolated physical systems."

In addition to Novick's insights on software-defined storage, the DSI Conference will cover cloud, big data, data management, and network-connected storage including new innovations and updates to many existing storage technologies. Actual deployment blueprints, innovative implementations, case studies, and best practices will be offered along with other technical and professional development sessions.

The Maxta Storage Platform is a hypervisor-agnostic, highly resilient enterprise storage platform for the virtual data center. It fully integrates with server virtualization at all levels from user interface to data management, while supporting all possible deployments of virtual data centers, including private, public and hybrid clouds. Through its software-only solution, Maxta turns standard servers into a converged compute and storage solution. This results in greater simplicity and economics over external storage arrays.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
