Comprehensive Software-Defined Storage Boosts ROI and Performance

Compuverde Unveils a Full Suite of Features to Support Web-Scale, Low-Cost, High-Performance Storage

KARLSKRONA, Sweden, Aug. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Service providers, major enterprises and telcos are grappling with the storage challenges caused by the rise of Big Data, the Internet of Things and virtualization. To help these organizations deal with these challenges, Compuverde today announced that it has developed the most comprehensive software-defined storage solution available in the industry today. Compuverde combines software efficiency with hardware flexibility that delivers web-scale growth toward exabytes of data and trillions of files in the data center.

The company supports all-flash data centers and scale-out network-attached storage (NAS) and virtual machine (VM) environments, providing superior storage options and flexibility to enterprises with extreme data storage needs.

Compuverde is the only storage provider capable of delivering all of the following benefits:

  • vNAS environments that scale to exabytes of data, with linear scaling that adds more nodes to a cluster while simultaneously boosting the capacity of each node, realizing substantial gains in ROI and performance.
  • Hyper-converged storage that runs as a virtual machine with VMware, Hyper-V and KVM.
  • The ability to rapidly add thousands and thousands of virtual machines to the same cluster, eliminating the cost and hassle of building a new cluster to accommodate data growth.
  • Software-defined storage that jettisons the need for expensive hardware. Since reliability and performance are brought to the software level, data center infrastructure managers are able to choose lower-energy, lower-cost commodity hardware without sacrificing speed.
  • The entire software stack with storage, cache, protocol integration and support for Windows and Linux in a completely converged solution with unparalleled quality.
  • Support for object store, providing superior flexibility.

Stefan Bernbo, CEO and founder, Compuverde, said: "With the explosion of data in recent years, major organizations are struggling to find a storage solution that supports flexible and future-proof data center architectures. Other solutions provide only parts of the puzzle, but lack flexibility, performance and are too expensive. We have developed a comprehensive software-defined storage offering that anticipates our customers' needs, allowing them to choose the server architecture they want – including flash – while supporting both web-scale vNAS and hyperconverged virtual environments. With this level of flexibility, customers can use their hardware of choice while saving money and boosting performance."
