SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxta, a leading provider of hyper-converged storage solutions, today announced the MaxDeploy ™ Reference Architecture built on Intel® Server Boards and Systems that uses Maxta MxSP software-defined storage to maximize the promise of hyper-convergence.
MaxDeploy delivers a new and flexible way of deploying hyper-converged solutions for the virtual data-center. MaxDeploy pre-defines and validates solutions running on popular server platforms to remove interoperability and performance guesswork, along with the need for proprietary hardware in hyper-converged solutions.Best-in-class technology for both compute and storage on Intel x86 servers provides simplification of management and significant cost savings for applications running on virtual machines.
The MaxDeploy Reference Architecture built on Intel Server Boards and Systems and Maxta MxSP software running in a virtualized environment, offers a variety of business benefits to partners and customers. The repeatable and standard deployment model mitigates the risk of hardware or software compatibility issues, while simplifying and shortening deployment time and training. The reference architecture serves as a starting point for a variety of hardware and software configurations to meet end user application workloads. It delivers the flexibility to choose industry standard server vendor(s), storage media type and capacity, and network switches based on end user specific needs.
Intel SSDs are also configured as part of this solution to demonstrate the interoperability of Maxta's software-defined storage with Intel SATA SSDs and traditional hard disk drives. By leveraging MaxDeploy with Intel Server Boards and Systems, enterprises now have the flexibility to scale their environment on-demand without over provisioning resources.
Maxta maximizes the promise of Hyper-convergence
Maxta maximizes the promise of hyper-convergence for customers. It fills a key market gap in a segment that is expected to grow very rapidly by enabling a very cost effective hyper-converged infrastructure solution running on any standard x86 server, using any hypervisor, while still delivering all the enterprise class data services (snapshots, clones, replication) and capacity optimization (thin provisioning, inline compression and inline de-duplication) that users would typically get in a NAS or SAN storage array. The addition of MaxDeploy reference architecture takes Maxta's solution one step further in delivering on the full promise of hyper-convergence by providing companies with pre-validated configurations, performance and peace of mind. MaxDeploy pre-validations include testing with server-side flash technology and magnetic disk drives to support a wide spectrum of cost / performance options. Maxta's VM-centric solution greatly simplifies IT management and greatly reduces storage administration by enabling customers to manage VMs and not storage.
Maxta will show its MaxDeploy converged infrastructure solutions at VMworld in San Francisco on August 24 – 27, 2014. Visit Maxta at Booth #305 to see demos of the MaxDeploy reference architecture.
"We have seen dramatic growth in interest for hyper-converged systems over the last year," said Yoram Novick, CEO of Maxta. "The introduction of MaxDeploy enables Maxta to provide our customers ease of ordering, predictability and most of all, vendor choice in hyper-converged solutions. MaxDeploy running on Intel Server Systems platforms is a strong validation that customers can realize the promise of hyper-convergence on high-performance Intel server platforms."

"In addition to receiving the efficiencies and cost savings of hyper-convergence, customers can now leverage MaxDeploy for pre-validated configurations and predictability of performance," said Al Diaz, Vice President and General Manager, Intel. "We believe that MaxDeploy and Intel Server Boards and Systems provide enterprises with more options for flexibility and capacity scalability."
