Smarter Data Center
Infrastructure for Scale-Out
Aligning Storage With Application’s Architectural Principles
Neuralytix Analyst Webinar, April 5th at 11AM (PST)
The DriveScale System
DriveScale has pioneered the concept of disaggregating direct-attached storage for servers as a unique way to architect and build data centers for Big Data applications.
DriveScale’s system gives a data center the ability to combine servers with any mix of disk drives on demand and in real time. With DriveScale’s system management software, administrators can deploy Hadoop clusters on the fly in very few steps, manage several racks as one and create clusters that span multiple racks.
Overcome Issues with Traditional Scale-Out Deployments
Typical scale-out platforms have multiple limitations:
- Inability to respond quickly to changing application stacks and data velocity
- Resources over-provisioned to provide service level guarantees
- Unable to take advantage of more cost efficient commodity platforms
The opportunity cost can be massive when measured against the ability to respond to changing business conditions or accelerate investigations that drive business value.
Developed with breakthrough technology, DriveScale’s architecture makes all of these issues disappear. Big Data clusters using commodity hardware can be provisioned and scaled up or down on demand and in real time. As a result, customers save both capital and operational expenses.
