SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Maxta™ flagship product, Maxta Storage Platform (MxSP™), a hypervisor-agnostic implementation of enterprise-class storage, has been selected as one of 12 finalists for Product of the Year 2013 award in the Enterprise Storage System Software category.
The 12 finalists in this category of Storage magazine’s/SearchStorage.com’s 2013 Products of the Year competition span a wide range of technologies, including flash-based caching, storage virtualization, software-defined storage, cloud storage and performance optimization.
The judges highlighted, “Maxta Storage Platform (MxSP) 1.5 eliminates the need for external storage arrays (SAN and NAS) by creating a global namespace and aggregating storage resources on commodity servers completely in software into a shared storage pool available to virtual servers. The software dramatically simplifies IT by delivering a VM-centric storage platform and supports all enterprise-class storage data services such as snapshots, clones, replication, thin provisioning, compression and deduplication, and can leverage flash for read and write-back caching.”
