Maxta™ — Thinking Outside the Storage Box
Maxta’s mission is to dramatically simplify and streamline IT by thinking outside the storage box. Maxta has redefined enterprise storage, enabling our customers to realize the full potential of the Software-Defined Data Center. While server virtualization enabled new levels of simplicity, agility, availability and cost on the compute side, enterprise storage has not kept up with these improvements. The basic architecture of existing enterprise storage solutions was originally designed for the physical data center, resulting in excessive cost and complexity when deployed in a virtual data center.
Maxta has developed a hypervisor agnostic, highly resilient, scalable, Software-Defined VM-centric storage platform. This Software-Defined VM-centric storage platform enables the convergence of applications, server virtualization and storage on standard servers. Maxta is optimized for flash performance and disk drive capacity. The Maxta Storage Platform eliminates the need for external storage arrays (either SAN or NAS) and provides all the enterprise-class capabilities required by the virtual data center. This Software-Defined VM-centric storage platform fully integrates with virtualization at all levels from UI to data management, making it extremely simple to manage while supporting all possible deployments of virtual data centers, including private and public clouds. Maxta enables significant capital and operational cost savings while providing the ability to scale on demand in lock-step with applications needs.
