All of the advantages of hyperconverged appliances with none of the downsides.
Maxta partners with every major server vendor to offer its Hyperconvergence Software pre-configured systems on industry-standard servers. It gives you all the advantages of buying a hardware appliance without any of the disadvantages – there’s no refresh tax, no upgrade tax, and no vendor lock-in. It’s simple to choose from different configurations and the systems are ready to go so you go from zero to running VMs in 15 minutes.
“Un-Appliances” Your Way
Your Choice of Server Vendor
It’s like an appliance without the vendor lock-in. You choose the server vendor. Everything comes ready to go, just like an appliance.
Pre-configured, validated systems with Maxta Hyperconvergence software are available from Cisco, Dell, HP Enterprise, Lenovo, Quanta and Super Micro and other server vendors. You pick a configuration from your preferred server vendor that suits your needs. This simplifies buying and configuring the system while still giving you the flexibility to use commodity hardware platforms.
Never Repay for Software Again
No Upgrade Tax. No Refresh Tax.
It’s simple like an appliance without the vendor lock-in. You choose the server vendor. Everything comes ready to go, just like an appliance.
Since the systems are just industry-standard servers, you can add capacity to the servers when you need it. With an appliance, the only way to scale is to buy another appliance. Why pay that “upgrade tax” if you don’t have to?
Setup is Simple, Just Like an Appliance
From Zero to VMs in 15 Minutes
Maxta Hyperconvergence Software ready to go on your choice of server vendor.
Everything is ready-to-go when you receive the hardware. Maxta’s partners pre-configure and validate everything on the system before it ships to you. Just unbox, rack it, power it on and connect it to your virtualization environment – either VMware vSphere or Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization. Then start moving VMs. Why pay the premium for an appliance when you can get the simplicity of one from your choice of server vendor?
