California and Bangalore based CloudByte Inc, which builds next-generation storage technology for service providers and enterprise has launched next-gen ElastiStor. The solution is made to meet the storage demands of new-age datacenters, which host hundreds of applications with diverse workloads, the company said.
ElastiStor breaks the need for hardwiring storage to get the desired performance levels with its on-demand facility, which the company claims to cut 80-90% cost with simplified management to enterprises and CSPs.
The storage solution makes managing storage as easy as managing virtual machines, even when you have thousands of applications. From a single web-based console, admins can now monitor, manage and control storage resource utilization, down to the application-level granularity.
CloudByte had recently raised $2.1 million in a Series A funding led by Nexus Venture Partners including Kae Capital.
The solution provides N-way high availability, exponentially increasing reliability compared to standard 2-way HA provided by legacy solutions. ElastiStor boasts of following features:
- QoS-configurable storage endpoints: It allows multiple applications with diverse workloads to be hosted from a single shared storage platform.
- On-demand storage provisioning: ElastiStor breaks the need for hardwiring storage to get the desired performance levels with its on-demand provisioning. It automates node selection and resource allocation based on an application’s capacity and performance requirements.
- REST APIs for easy integration: Every action performed at ElastiStor admin console translates into a REST based API call in the backend, enabling admins to fully manage ElastiStor storage from their existing portals.
CloudByte was started in 2011 by a team of senior technology professionals with experience at Novell,NetApp, HP, Juniper Networks, Bell Labs, and Amazon, and a background in creating, developing and managing products in cloud storage and security technology areas.
California headquartered company has already filed several patents including number of pilot projects underway with leading cloud service providers, enterprises, and storage resellers.
