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--(Marketwired - Sep 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 cloud operators running a wide range of traditional enterprise applications or cloud-native workloads can now consolidate their application silos on one universal data infrastructure. Elastic Data Fabric adapts automatically to application or business needs, delivers a wide price/performance band, and can reduce costs by up to 75%.

Datera Elastic Data Fabric is now VMware Ready for Storage™ with VAAI certification, and integrated with VMware vCenter for provisioning and vRealize for cloud scaling. This enables automated, highly performant and cost-efficient private cloud deployments for packaged enterprise applications such as Microsoft SQL, Exchange and SharePoint, as well as home-grown virtualized applications, such as MySQL-based stacks.

In addition, Datera also announced integration with Mesosphere DC/OS, enabling seamless scalability and rapid provisioning for container-based cloud deployments of cloud-native applications, including those built on Cassandra, MongoDB and other NoSQL databases. Datera Elastic Data Fabric is already integrated with Docker Swarm and Google Kubernetes, and therefore now supports all major container ecosystems. Datera Elastic Data Fabric now also supports Dell servers, further expanding its support for industry standard servers, across hardware generations, diverse storage media, and all-flash and hybrid models.

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

Datera 2.0 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:

  • All-flash nodes: Support for all flash nodes, building on existing support for hybrid nodes.
  • VMware support: Integration with VMware vSphere and vRealize suites, and support for VAAI.
  • CloudStack and CloudPlatform support: Expanding dynamic cloud integration with support for CloudStack and CloudPlatform, along with existing OpenStack support.
  • DC/OS support: Integration with Mesosphere DC/OS, expanding existing Docker Swarm and Kubernetes container orchestrator integrations.
  • Increased 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-tenancy: Role-based multi-tenant data management for enterprise applications, modern cloud architectures (DevOps, containers and microservices) and data clouds (for streaming analytics and big data applications).
  • Dell server support: Expanding hardware support to include Dell Poweredge R-Class servers, building on existing support with SuperMicro servers.
  • Expanded business models: Rack-ready storage appliance, perpetual software license, or pay-as-you go OPEX model.
