ProphetStor(TM) Elevates Vendor Agnostic Software-Defined Storage With Elastic Management and Reduced Storage Costs for Enterprises in Federator(TM) SDS

Orchestrates Storage Silos Into Enterprise Scale-Out Storage Infrastructure and Enables Management of Virtual Storage Resources From a Single Pane of Glass

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - March 31, 2014) -  ProphetStor Data Services, Inc., a leader in Software-Defined Storage (SDS), today delivers the next level of SDS for Cloud Computing, Big Data Analytics, HPC, OpenStack, and other applications demanding storage with the general availability of its flagship product, Federator SDS 2.0.

New generations of applications and virtual infrastructures, as well as the 3V's of big data (volume, variety, and velocity), are demanding more cost-effective and innovative forms of storage provisioning. Such rise in demand has multiplied the complexity facing Data Center Managers across the industry with their existing mixed storage environment, with solutions from conventional providers not completely addressing this challenge. Federator SDS is designed to meet the needs of this new wave of users and revolutionize SDS for heterogeneous storage data center environments through the orchestration of existing storage silos and commodity hardware into an enterprise grade scale-out storage infrastructure.

Federator SDS provides administrators centralized control of their various storage systems, with automated discovery, abstraction and delivery for OpenStack, Cloud Computing, Big Data Analytics, HPC, and other applications demanding storage. With the separation of control and data paths, Federator SDS makes it possible for data center administrators to manage storage resources from different vendors with a single pane of glass, and classify and abstract them into virtual pools that can be provisioned automatically. This allows IT managers the ability to manage legacy storage systems, and add storage with enterprise-grade features and performance while keeping their spending in line with their budgets.

Federator SDS consists of storage orchestration and storage hypervisor core components. The orchestration functions allow different storage to offer storage services based on performance service-level, amongst other storage service offerings available in the 2.0 release. 

"A storage hypervisor can mean old storage virtualization technology cobbled together to accommodate commodity hardware. Not so now," said Eric Chen, ProphetStor CEO. "With the introduction of storage management orchestration, Federator SDS successfully debunks the myth of a storage hypervisor equalling SDS and unlocks the true value of SDS software. The simplicity of Federator SDS allows servers and critical applications the access to their targeted storage on a direct path, while adding the much needed management functions for users.

"Software-defined storage solutions offered by many vendors are often spot-solutions or solutions unique to that vendor. ProphetStor is setting a precedent with Federator SDS to unveil the next level Software-Define Storage that is generally available today. The horizontal management provided by the Federator SDS breaks the barriers created by the vertical silos from different vendors. For the first time, the customers are relieved from understanding different storage managements and platforms, and can focus more on meeting the requirements from various applications and/or users. And better resource utilization translates into efficiency and better return on investment (ROI) for customers," said Chen.

Key features in Federator SDS include:

  • Storage orchestration with centralized management for administrators and users
  • Non-disruptive deployment without changing the existing storage configurations
  • Automatic discovery of storage systems and abstraction of physical resources into virtual pools
  • Storage pool classification by capabilities and performance
  • Automated storage provisioning for self-service
  • Dynamic monitoring and scheduling of resources for delivery of storage requests to meet the application requirement
  • Deployment in an independent IT environment or with OpenStack
  • Support for storage from different vendors
  • Open HTTP REST storage and management API's for easy integration with other applications
