CloudByte Software Upgrade Improves User Visibility Into Storage Metrics, Offers New Opportunities for Cloud Service Providers

CloudByte, the first company to provide dynamically selectable storage performance on industry-standard hardware, announced today a new release of its award-winning storage software, ElastiStorTM 1.3. The CloudByte software provides improved end-user visibility into storage metrics and the ability to view the real-time status of the CloudByte environment. It integrates with major virtualization vendors and cloud stack environments and expands certification of more hardware platforms.

“Without metrics that matter providing visibility insight into your storage environment usage and activity, you are flying blind,” said Greg Schulz, founder and senior advisor, StorageIO. “By providing visibility and situational awareness, CloudByte helps their customers safely navigate and leverage their storage infrastructure in different conditions to avoid becoming a cloud performance, availability or economic barrier.”

Detailed storage reports and metrics that improve end-user visibility can be accessed from the CloudByte ElastiCenterTM console or conveniently from a mobile device, similar to the functionality of Amazon Cloud Watch. Another visibility feature is the standardization of a key performance measure – IOPS – across hardware platforms for improved billing consistency.

Integration enhancements include a new REST API set that can be used by service providers to seamlessly provide Virtual Machine-level IOPS provisioning and management directly from VMware vCenter. VM snapshots and clones can also be driven from vCenter. A new plug-in provides application-consistent snapshots for Microsoft SQL Server environments.

Environment support for this release includes:

  • OpenStack Cinder plugin support for the OpenStack Grizzly release
  • A CloudByte IOPS management plugin for the CloudStack 4.3 release
  • VMware block and file certifications
  • CloudByte-certified hardware platforms : Dell PowerEdge Rx20 server series; HP ProLiant DL Rack Servers, Generation 8; and DataON Cluster-in-a-Box series

By leveraging the capabilities of this release, service providers can address more customer needs and expand their footprint within existing customer environments. Further, by providing enhanced customer visibility into the resources needed to handle business-critical workloads, this release will enable service providers to increase overall topline revenues.

“This release is in direct response to our service provider customers’ requests for functionality that directly allows them to increase market share,” said Felix Xavier, CloudByte CTO and founder. “Better end-user visibility, better integration, and broader environment support increase our customers’ ability to capture new enterprises and share of wallet of existing enterprises.”

For current customers, CloudByte ElastiStor 1.3 is immediately available from the CloudByte support website. A version that includes a free perpetual license for four terabytes of storage capacity can be downloaded from the Free Trial page.
