Converged Storage, Compute and Network Architecture
With the growth and complexity of the data center matched only by the rising costs of storage, computing and networking, businesses today must balance the needs of their environment against increasingly tighter budgets and reduced IT headcount. Yottabyte yCenter is a complete datacenter solution that provides software-based storage, virtual computing (servers) and software-defined networking on scale-out building block appliances to provide dramatic cost savings, flexibility and simplicity.
Its only chance is a diagonal move into hyperconvergence with a hope of building an endgame machine of its own. Yottabyte could give it the software, SimpliVity the hardware (along with a better underlying storage platform than anyone else, anywhere has). The alternative is probably courting Nutanix.
If NetApp bought Yottabyte and SimpliVity both, managed to integrate the products and didn't botch the job like NetApp usually do, they might just have a chance. NetApp is so much bigger than both companies that it could get away with dominating those relationships.Read the full article
yCenter includes storage, compute, networking, automation, orchestration and analytics. Traditionally, these would each be a platform unto themselves; with yCenter these are all base features incorporated into a single platform.
yCenter’s datacenter convergence model allows for a simplified, “building-block” approach to the creation of a high-performance virtual datacenter environment. This can help create a competitive advantage for your organization by reducing the time it takes to create and implement a fully enterprise ready cloud solution.Read the full article
The result of years of this R&D is yCenter. It can be a public cloud, a private cloud or a hybrid cloud. Yottabyte has gone through and solved almost all the tough problems first – erasure coded storage, built-in layer 2 and 3 networking extensibility, management UI that doesn't suck – and is only now thinking about solving the easy ones.
Yottabyte didn't push back and say it needed to control all aspects of the ecosystem. it didn't come back demanding a means to limit the service providers' role, own every element of the customer relationship or otherwise marginalise everyone except itself.Read the full article on www.theregister.co.uk
Yottabyte®, the rising star in software-defined storage, today announced yStor 2.3, the latest version of its software platform. Underpinning yStor 2.3 is a powerful distributed and globally deduplicated file system, Yottabyte File System (YBFS), and Yottabyte’s virtual SAN (vSAN) technology. yStor is the cloud-aware storage platform which enables business to build their own cloud environments with robust data protection features scale-out building block appliances.
Yottabyte provides yStor 2.3 for a price as low as about one cent per Gigabyte per month, making it the most affordable enterprise storage platform on the market.Read the full article on www.prweb.com
The year 2012 was not characterized by any revolution in technology in the storage industry. Instead, it was a year in which the market caught up to the technological changes that have been brewing for a couple years.
It was a year in which public storage clouds proved their mettle, flash storage technology and converged infrastructure moved from the periphery to the mainstream, the top enterprise vendors and top small business vendors met to duke it out in the middle and even the lowly disk drive and tape drive brought new surprises.Read the full article on www.crn.com
yCenter is intelligent software, coupled with modular hardware to deliver a complete datacenter solution. Yottabyte’s hyperconverged infrastructure (aka software-defined datacenter) redefines datacenters by offering simplicity, unmatched flexibility and immense scalability. By implementing yCenter, businesses can reduce datacenter costs by more than 70%
yCenter includes everything you need to start building a complete software-defined datacenter (no additional hardware or licenses required):
