Maxta, a provider of hyper-converged storage solutions, has announced the MaxDeploy Reference Architecture, built on Intel (News - Alert) Server Boards and Systems that uses Maxta MxSP software-defined storage to maximize the promise of hyper-convergence.
Hyper-converged infrastructures have been getting a lot of attention as a technology that can simplify the architecture of virtual environments at a low cost.
In order to remove interoperability and performance guesswork in hyper-converged solutions, MaxDeploy pre-defines and validates solutions running on popular server platforms.
In addition, the repeatable and standard deployment model mitigates the risk of hardware or software compatibility issues and simplifies and shortens deployment time and training.
Yoram Novick, CEO of Maxta said in a statement, "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."
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 simplifies IT management and greatly reduces storage administration by enabling customers to manage VMs and not storage.
