Indian technology product company, CloudByte is a storage technology that enables intelligent, grid-like, and software-defined storage, making it easier to afford and manage storage for applications in today’s virtualized datacenter. Virtualization was big on the server side but CloudByte intends to make a change on the storage side. They also raised a USD 2.1 million series A round led by Nexus Venture Partners last year and have since expanded rapidly.
In an announcement today, CloudByte has taken steps to aggressively grow in the US market as their CTO, Felix Xavier moves to Silicon Valley office to lead and expand US operations. CloudByte has also launched the ElastiStor 1.1 for storage demands of new-age datacenters which host hundreds of applications with diverse workloads.
This is primarily how CloudByte works:
ElastiStor brings QoS-configuration to storage endpoints i.e., each storage LUN can be configured in terms of capacity, IOPS, throughput and latency. CloudByte claims that this will reduce storage TCO by 80-90%. Here are some of the other features ElastiStor brings in:
- Ease of Management with On-Demand Provisioning and vCenter like Administration
- Customizable, Scalable and Reliable Datacenters to Enterprises
