Broadly speaking, information technology is based on three elements—compute, storage, and networking. Traditionally, each one of these elements was delivered as separate hardware and software products. Servers were designed to support compute workloads and storage arrays were designed to support storage workloads. This model works well for physical data centers where applications run on hardware-defined servers, but is not well suited for software-defined data centers with virtualized servers and desktops.
Maxta® maximizes the promise of hyper-convergence. MaxDeploy™ Appliances and Maxta Storage Platform™ (MxSP™) software solutions provide companies the choice to hyper-converge on any x86 server, the ability to run on any compute abstraction layer, and the flexibility to support any combination of storage devices, eliminating the need for complex and expensive storage arrays. The simplicity of Maxta's VM-centric, application-defined solutions reduces IT management and lowers cost, all while delivering hyper-scale, enterprise-level data services and capacity optimization.
MxSP provides the best of both traditional storage and hyper-convergence by empowering organizations to define storage attributes independently and easily for each application, aligning storage with applications. Maxta software enables the tuning of the virtual storage pool to the optimal configuration for a variety of workloads concurrently, including VDI, Microsoft Exchange*, SharePoint*, SQL Server*, and Oracle Database*.
MxSP delivers significant capital savings compared to storage arrays, without compromising performance or scalability.
