Datrium claims its split-provisioning DVX array is ‘tomorrow calling’

Datrium is providing separate scaling of CPU power and storage capacity in its disaggregated converged storage arrays.

These DVX arrays feature controller functionality running in accessing servers – compute nodes – which link to 24-slot drive JBODs – disk-based data nodes.

Datrium Introduces Split Provisioning For DVX

Today Datrium introduced what it is calling a fundamentally new and different method of scaling converged infrastructure for private clouds, DVX 3.0 with Split Provisioning. This new software will enable the server-powered converged infrastructure system to fully separate scaling of host storage speed and persistent capacity. This will match resources to the changing requirements. Datrium intends to demonstrate its DVX platform with Split Provisioning at the VMWorld conference in Las Vegas, Aug. 27-31, booth #618.

Effortless, Efficient, and Elastic Infrastructure for Private Cloud Datrium

For most organizations the question is no longer whether it is appropriate to adopt cloud, but is when the right time and what services to move. As IT organizations face increasing pressure to become more agile while also meeting the needs of end-users accustomed to public cloud services, the costs and reality of deploying private cloud provide significant challenges. Datrium is the leader in Open Converged Infrastructure for private clouds, providing vastly simpler performance, scalability, mobility and protection.

Optimizing cloud data management with its open convergence platform: Datrium Inc

Present day organizations generate massive amount of data that is critical for business operations. This has led to the rising demand of effective network storage technologies and online access to sensitive data while reducing the total cost of ownership. In response, companies are adopting networked storage to manage the continuous streams of data and perform actions on that data. To further reduce complexity and improve the operating costs of their business solutions, they adopt converged infrastructure approaches, where all the technology components are brought together as an integrated part of a single solution. This fundamental shift in infrastructure convergence, relating to private and hybrid cloud computing, was foreseen by the founders and early architects of Data Domain and VMware, and Datrium was established.

Object storage helps with ransomware protection

Datrium, announced the ability to deliver encryption for data at rest and for data in flight. Encrypting data on storage infrastructure offers benefits but has limitations. These technologies help protect data from physical theft of storage media or systems or access to the data when storage equipment is retired or discarded. Data in flight, meanwhile, helps protect information in the event someone attempts to sniff the network. Again, encryption is helpful but only one part of the protection equation.

Start-Up Profile: Datrium

The Datrium DVX converges storage and compute in a new way, called Open Convergence, to simplify webscale and tier 1 private cloud infrastructure deployments. It separates on-host, software-driven IO services and performance (compute nodes) from an off-host durable data repository (data node), so speed and persistent capacity can each be provisioned incrementally. It also provides always-on de-dupe and compression, erasure-coded data protection, data management and encryption. This combination of capabilities enable VM administrators to accelerate, backup, copy and recover VMs across their data lifecycle.

Datrium: Data Cloud Software and DVX Rackscale System

Private clouds are changing in response to increasing use of public clouds. Infrastructure modernization is re-focusing on reducing complexity for virtualization administrators, so traditional systems, including storage arrays, are declining in favor of converged infrastructure approaches. In addition, organizations are relying more heavily on their converged systems for richer data management so administrators have a more cloud-like experience managing infrastructure.

The now-classic dual-controller disk array went hybrid to keep storing primary data, but all-flash arrays are taking on that role and so the hybrids went all flash too. High-end monolithic arrays saw newcomer Infinidat make roaring progress as it took share with its low-priced and highly available InfiniBox array.

10 Hot Startups in the Channel

What did we learn from our analysis of hot startups in the channel? For one, the allure of Silicon Valley hasn't faded.

The following 10 vendors, all tech startups founded no earlier than 2011, are making a splash in the partner community. Most are based in California, with a couple in suburban Boston.

Several are storage providers; others offer cloud migration, analytics, data-center services, security — or a combination of two or more of these hot services.

You'll know the names (featured here in alphabetical order) of some of these, while others are companies you should know or soon will due to their growth and rapid up-and-coming presence in the channel and the industry as a whole.

Enterprise Data Storage Vendor Roundup

DATA STORAGE STARTUPS
Many technology companies try to keep a startup label as long as they can. Why? Because “startup” has the cachet of being innovative, high-value, growth driven, and a bull’s-eye target for investment or acquisition. I believe that a company that calls itself a startup after five years and has billions of dollars in valuations (hello, Uber) is getting a little long in the tooth, and needs to graduate into mid-tier vendors.

The below vendors are all 5 years old or less, have innovative product, and show real promise for the long-term.

DATRIUM
2013 saw the founding of Datrium by one of VMware’s co-founders. The company came out of stealth mode and into the general storage market in 2016 with Datrium DVX. Datrium DVX is a split architecture that places storage functions on the server and supports persistent shared storage capacity on the backend.

Adding VM host cores scales IO performance up to 1 million IOPs and accelerates data services. Synchronous writes go through the Datrium NetShelf NAS, which allows for stateless servers and simplified storage management.
