Traditional storage systems fail to meet the needs of modern businesses and service providers by adding fixed amounts of capacity with limited bandwidth, requiring large, up-front capital expenses, and making scalability difficult.
Traditional virtualization solutions fail to provide simple installation and maintenance, and use self-service private cloud solutions. Advanced networking, moving workloads between private and public data centers, and infrastructure basics such as backups and replication are frequently left to the customer.
Yottabyte's yCenter* provides an excellent alternative to traditional storage arrays and to traditional virtualization solutions. yCenter includes a fully distributed, globally de-duplicated, erasure-coded storage system developed from the ground up to deliver storage in a self-managed, self-healing platform.
In addition to yCenter's self-service virtualization management, data protection, caching, tiering, replication, and workload placement capabilities, yCenter allows flexibility in how data is stored, protected, and accessed. yCenter is more than just a storage solution. yCenter ensures that workloads can get exactly the resources they need to operate where they need to operate.
YottaBlox are sold in hyperconverged (HCI), storage-only (AFA and Hybrid), and compute-only varieties. All YottaBlox are built using Intel® hardware. YottaBlox deliver virtual storage, computing, and networking via the simple-to-manage yCenter software platform.
YottaBlox are powered by yCenter. yCenter is a radically simple hybrid cloud solution that includes a scalable, globally deduplicated, erasure-coded storage solution. Data protection, tearing, multisite replication, software-defined networking, and an easy-to-use self-service virtualization management interface are only some of the powerful features that are a standard part of yCenter and the YottaBlox it powers.
