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.

  • The simplicity, high availability and performance of Maxta Storage was evident from the beginning and we now rely on Maxta Storage for our critical applications.
    Soumitra Ghosh, VP of IT, Driscoll’s

  • The implementation of Maxta software has enabled us to utilize enterprise data services, such as high availability, VM snapshots and cloning, that was previously not available with the iSCSI array.
    Mike Leland, VSS Monitoring, Data Center Engineer

  • We chose Maxta for our virtual environment due to its cost effectiveness and management simplicity. I was impressed by the fact that Maxta’s architecture is able to leverage commodity SSD and SATA drives to get optimum performance and capacity without any cost trade-offs.
    Subha Rajana, VP Operations & CFO, Vedams 

  • Maxta solution can essentially be seen as a server-based storage app; as such it’s a perfect fit for an increasingly converged, and yet heterogeneous, world where easy to deploy and use software management is crucial from both operational and economic viewpoints.
    Mark Peters, Sr. Analyst, ESG

  • The savings potential of implementing Maxta storage encompasses reduced hardware requirements, reductions in data center power, cooling and floor space requirements, and ease of use that allows IT to control storage costs and for VM administrators to control their own data destiny.
    Deni Connor, Founding analyst, SSG-NOW
