Solutions

Today’s enterprises depend on leveraging more applications and data than ever before, driving leaders to modernize IT for optimal agility, simplicity and cost savings.

From containers to clouds, databases, DevOps and more, Datera offers future-proof scalable solutions for storage that deliver breakthrough agility, cloud simplicity and enterprise-class performance, with better-than-public cloud economics.

Datera for Containers

As enterprises look to containers to increase IT agility and more efficiently manage resources at scale, they’re discovering that traditional storage systems and silos are potential barriers to achieving these goals. Containers depend on frequent, dynamic allocation of resources that rigid storage architectures with their cumbersome, multi-step administrative tasks were never designed to accommodate.

Effortlessly Deploy Containers at Scale

DSP software was created from the ground up to seamlessly provide distributed storage for both stateful (persistent) and stateless (ephemeral) container workloads. DSP automatically integrates with all major container platforms and schedulers, including Docker, Mesos and Kubernetes. From a single volume to an entire storage cloud, DSP can dynamically provision everything with just one API call. Optimized for distributed access, DSP supports container locality, failure domains and resource segregation to deliver robust, scalable storage perfectly matched to your container infrastructure.

Datera for Clouds

The enterprise storage environment is going hybrid, with traditional on-prem systems deployed in tiers and silos along with modern private, hybrid or public clouds that provision and deliver storage as-a-service. While clouds bring much needed agility and simplicity for modern apps, traditional Tier-1 apps often can’t take advantage of them due to performance limits or economics. Ouch!

Built for Cloud. Born to Scale.

Datera DSP delivers highly-elastic block and object storage as-a-service, with the enterprise-class performance and predictable low-latency needed to lift and consolidate Tier-1 and cloud-native workloads onto your private or hybrid cloud platform. Designed for clouds, DSP provides robust multi-tenancy, with per-tenant role-based access, QoS, comprehensive storage policies and reusable application templates that make self-service a snap for developers without manual administration. DSP supports popular open cloud platforms and providers including OpenStack, Apache CloudStack, Accelerite CloudPlatform and Platform9.

Datera for Databases

Enterprises are increasingly adopting non-relational databases to help leverage the huge volume of semi-structured and unstructured data being generated by web apps and IoT devices. But when it comes to storage, non-relational databases aren’t designed for scale-up enterprise systems and they don’t like sharing. The cloud is simply too expensive, and more silos aren’t the answer.

Many Databases. One Agile Platform.

Databases are not all alike, taking different approaches to deliver performance and availability. Datera DSP uses intelligent data placement within and across nodes to continuously optimize for the unique I/O characteristics of every database, delivering continuous data availability with policy-based QoS for any database application, always at the lowest possible cost. When policies or workloads change, DSP automatically adapts to the new requirements – without manual tuning or data migration. As data grows, DSP scales seamlessly. Non-disruptively. Economically. Finally, your databases can simply share storage resources – without silos.

Datera for DevOps

As enterprises sharpen their IT focus on strategic initiatives and new applications, they’re increasingly adopting DevOps practices to accelerate development and deployment. Rigid enterprise storage architectures often lack key features or the automation needed to fully support DevOps teams, creating a gap between Dev and Ops that can hinder overall DevOps productivity.

Deliver Infrastructure-as-Code with Ease

Through its API-first design, Datera DSP provides comprehensive RESTful API support for composable infrastructure and self-service provisioning, making it ideal for continuous DevOps deployment cycles. DSP delivers full role-based multi-tenancy with resource quotas, allowing developers to dynamically provision block or object storage as-a-service, invoke data services such as zero-copy snaps and clones, or instantiate new deployments using pre-defined templates that eliminate the need to understand the underlying infrastructure. With Datera, entire storage clouds can be effortlessly deployed from simple API calls or via the intuitive DSP GUI.

Datera for Virtualization

Virtualization has long been a boon to delivering greater efficiency from computing resources by optimizing the use of physical server infrastructure. But when it comes to storage, virtualization creates a layer of complexity and inefficiency that must be continuously monitored and managed. To simplify storage management, many VMs often share storage pools provisioned using a one-size-fits-most approach, which can make for noisy neighbors and poor capacity utilization.

Get Persistent Storage. Not Persistent Management.

Datera DSP software makes storage for virtualized infrastructure simple. With reusable application templates, elastic block or object storage as-a-service can be provisioned for one to thousands of VMs in seconds. DSP provides robust multi-tenancy with role-based access, QoS and resource quotas to keep noisy neighbors silent – and thin provisioning, efficient data reduction and zero-copy snaps that keep wasted capacity in check. Unlike one-size-fits-most datastores, DSP’s highly-elastic data services are continuously optimized to deliver the best performance at the lowest possible cost. For every VM, without compromise or persistent management.

Datera for Data Centers

Data center modernization projects such as software-defined data centers, rack scale architecture and leaf-spine networks are on the agenda for many enterprises. Storage infrastructure must also be modernized to fully enable this new, more agile world. But rigid traditional storage often lacks key features needed to support modernization, adding to complexity instead of eliminating it.

Data Center Aware. Rack Scale Enabled.

Datera DSP software is designed for the modern data center, with advanced features such as rack awareness, stretched clusters, storage pools and native L3 networking. Integrated software-based BGP routing makes DSP resources easily accessible across racks, availability zones and data centers, with fast convergence after network link or node changes to assure continuous service availability. DSP resources are dynamically composable and support all major container platforms, orchestrators and open cloud stacks. With DSP, your storage infrastructure becomes an invisible, self-driving resource that delivers elastic data services to any application in the data center, while automatically adapting to changes in the environment, reducing complexity and adding agility.
