Federator* is a control-path-only SDS controller that simplifies and automates storage discovery, abstraction, delivery, monitoring, and optimization. Federator can be run in any cloud environment, and is already tightly integrated with OpenStack, the leading open source cloud operating system. It can build a software-defined data center in a cost-effective manner, while using only standard Intel® architecture (IA) technologies.
The architecture forms a complete and self-sufficient cloud storage environment that allows an optional connection to a heterogeneous legacy storage infrastructure. It also permits linear scaling with standard hardware to enable future growth. Federator SDS, the policy-based storage orchestration system, fully abstracts the underlying storage hardware and all essential components on any Intel®-based bare-metal servers. This enables administrators to create offerings that can be self-provisioned, based on features such as IOPS or RAID levels.
