The software defined data center has spawned a number of transformative technologies. One of the fastest growing of the group is software defined storage. Software defined storage unifies the storage and computing power on to a standard x86 hardware rather than complex and proprietary storage area networks (SANs) and blade systems. This hyper converged architecture delivers unparalleled performance and scale at a fraction of the price of traditional data center architectures.
Hyper-convergence is a truly disruptive architecture and delivers a tremendous amount of value to any organization regardless of the industry. CCS has been at the forefront of this technology revolution and has been delivering unified compute and storage solutions since 2012. CCS’s key partners in the software defined storage market include the industry leader Nutanix, as well as Atlantis Computing and VMware.
Atlantis Computing offers the industry’s most flexible and powerful software-defined storage platform. Atlantis USX delivers better performance than the fastest all-flash array, at half the cost of traditional SAN, on any class of enterprise storage. Atlantis USX is a 100% software-only solution purpose-built to boost any virtualized workload’s performance by up to ten times, while also increasing effective storage capacity by up to ten times.
Atlantis USX enables local servers with RAM, SAS, Flash, or memory-channel storage to create a highly scalable, hyper-converged platform using existing servers. This solution provides the flexibility to pool commodity local storage with RAM and/or flash across multiple server farms. By doing so, customers can seamlessly scale out their architecture to create a hyper-converged infrastructure and manage their applications without having to rip out their existing infrastructure. Get up to 300TB of effective storage capacity in a 3 server configuration. Hyper-convergence enables IT organizations to integrate server and storage resources into a simple, scalable and low cost replacement of traditional SAN or NAS shared storage. Datacenter infrastructure can now scale out linearly, reducing costs and increasing flexibility
Nutanix is the recognized leader in the fast-growing Virtual Computing Platform market. The Nutanix solution converges compute and storage resources into a single appliance, delivering a powerful, modular building block for virtual data centers. The Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform delivers enterprise data storage as an on-demand service by employing a highly distributed software architecture. Nutanix eliminates the need for traditional SAN and NAS solutions, and delivers a rich set of software-defined services that are entirely VM-centric, including snapshots, high availability, disaster recovery, deduplication and more.
The Nutanix web-scale platform is fault resistant, with no single point of failure and no bottlenecks. The system uses a shared-nothing architecture, where all data, metadata and services are distributed to all nodes within the cluster, and is built to detect, isolate and recover from failures anywhere in the system. Nutanix hyperconverged appliances deliver always-on operation, and can survive system hardware, software and hypervisor issues and maintain 100% availability to applications and data.
The Nutanix engineering team is led by the same developers and architects who created the renowned Google File System. The company’s management team hails from leading cloud, database, virtualization, and infrastructure companies, and brings unparalleled experience in developing technologies that fundamentally disrupt multi-billion dollar markets.
VMware is the industry leading virtualization software company. VMware’s technologies simplify IT complexity and streamline operations, helping businesses become more agile, efficient and profitable. By virtualizing infrastructure—from the data center to the cloud to mobile devices VMware enable IT to deliver services from any device, anytime, anywhere.
VMware Virtual SAN (vSAN) is radically simple, hypervisor-converged storage designed and optimized for vSphere virtual infrastructure. Vmware vSAN allows organizations to streamline storage provisioning and management for vSphere environments. Businesses and use virtual machine-centric storage policies to provide finely granular control and automation of storage service levels. Self-tuning capabilities automatically rebuild and rebalance storage resources to align with the service levels assigned to each VM. Vmware vSAN is fully integrated with vSphere and the entire VMware stack delivers an efficient and cost-effective operational model.
