PROMISE Technology Spotlights Storage Solutions for the Cloud at VMworld

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/26/14 -- This week at VMworld 2014, PROMISE Technology Inc., a recognized global leader in the storage industry, will be on the show floor highlighting their storage solutions, as the company continues to build into cloud infrastructure. Along with PROMISE's just announced all-in-one, on-premise Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing (EFSS) solution, FileCruiser, its unified storage system for virtualized backup/archive solutions, the Vess R2000 Series, will be showcased at the event.

VMworld is the leading virtualization and cloud computing event of the year, bringing together thought leaders, subject matter experts and IT professionals. As it continues to shift the tech landscape, the cloud has become the clear way forward -- particularly for datacenters. Building on the momentum generated by the cloud -- and giving IT professionals the building blocks needed for cloud storage infrastructure -- PROMISE's portfolio of cloud solutions brings cost savings, infrastructure reliability and flexibility to datacenters -- and businesses of all sizes.

The Vess R2000 Series is an ideal entry-level system for SMB/IT workgroups requiring cost efficient storage for unstructured data and virtualization backup/archiving. A high-availability 8G Fibre Channel/10G iSCSI unified storage system with NAS filer, the Vess R2000 Series is certified with the latest VMware vSphere® ESXi 5.5 as well as Veeam®, enabling customers to virtualize their IT infrastructure and start their move into the cloud. Additionally, the Vess R2000 Series supports VMware VAAI, which reduces resource overhead on VMware vSphere ESXi hosts, significantly improving performance for storage-intensive operations such as storage cloning, zeroing and more. The Vess R2000 offers industry leading price/performance and can easily grow along with a customer's business needs, as it can scale-up with online expansion up to 112 drives.

PROMISE's FileCruiser is an all-in-one cloud storage solution that allows businesses that have users needing to sync and share data between multiple mobile devices to build their own secure, scalable private cloud storage service. FileCruiser eliminates the data security concerns that come with public online cloud file sharing solutions because all hardware and data are located on the users' premises. In a recent survey by Enterprise Strategy Group, 69 percent of participants preferred on-premise cloud solutions, due to security concerns. FileCruiser can be deployed on various scales to meet the needs of hundreds to over ten thousand users.

PROMISE's booth at VMworld will feature a technology demonstration of its 'High Density Storage Server', a hyperscale computing 4U/70 bay platform which features two independent server nodes that provide high-availability, high storage capacity and high networking throughput. The PROMISE Technology High Density Storage Server provides flexible configuration modes to meet the needs of different deployment scenarios, and will be targeting big data analytics for OEM partners and Internet data center customers when it launches in Q4 2014.

Rounding out the suite of cloud storage solutions at PROMISE's booth are its VTrak storage subsystems -- which are VMware 5.5 certified and support Symantec and Veeam. The VTrak systems at VMworld can be deployed as virtualization building blocks for creating a cloud workgroup infrastructure for backup and archiving.

"While cloud-based services have made it easy for the average user to manage and access their data from multiple devices, delivering on the promise of the cloud can present problems for service providers," said James Lee, CEO, PROMISE Technology. "Storage is the key component to a cloud provider's success, and VMworld is the ideal venue to showcase our suite of cloud storage solutions -- which form the building blocks of a robust cloud infrastructure. PROMISE delivers consistent performance, reliability and manageability to ensure that a user's data is always there when it's requested."

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
In his session at Cloud Expo, Robert Cohen, an economist and senior fellow at the Economic Strategy Institute, provideed economic scenarios that describe how the rapid adoption of software-defined everything including cloud services, SDDC and open networking will change GDP, industry growth, productivity and jobs. This session also included a drill down for several industries such as finance, social media, cloud service providers and pharmaceuticals.
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, discussed the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...
