Recently, a well-known database company in the United States chose to purchase Maxta hyperconvergence software and 3-years of technical support services to further the growth of their new business. As stated by the IT director of the database company, Maxta hyperconvergence software is easier to operate and offers high flexibility with cloud support and virtualized deployment without the vendor lock-in. These factors have made the company select Maxta Hyperconvergence out of various solutions including Nutanix, Maxta, and public cloud.
The database product of this database company connects billions of documents, tens of thousands of databases, and other data sources around the world; all of which is updated daily. The database is used by the legal departments of many companies around the world, and it is accessed and queried frequently.
As their business grows, this database company needed to deploy a robust and cost-effective IT infrastructure. To this end, the company tried many solutions. Initially, the company planned to purchase public cloud or deploy a SAN, but they found that there were various problems including the management complexity and the massive costs. As a result, the company began to consider a hyperconvergence solution as suggested by its partner, and they studied and compared the functionality and costs of each vendor’s hyperconvergence system. After thorough considerations, the IT department of this database company finally chose Maxta to achieve flexible scalability and legacy hardware reuse.
Silicon Valley-based Maxta is a vendor listed in Gartner Magic Quadrant of Hyperconverged Infrastructure. Maxta Hyperconvergence software product has long been widely acclaimed with its support for the cloud and virtualized deployment as well as no vendor lock-in. Customers can choose between installing Maxta Hyperconvergence software on their servers or having it pre-installed and pre-configured on an x86 server of any brand. Moreover, it supports the widest choice of server vendors including Cisco, Dell/EMC, HP, Huawei, Intel, Lenovo, Quanta, Super Micro and other manufacturers. To scale storage, Maxta users can include new storage space by simply adding or replacing drivers or adding servers instead of adding new hyperconverged appliances. In addition, unlike many other traditional hyperconvergence software that places each application on a separate cluster, Maxta can run many workloads on one cluster, thereby saving costs while improving the application performance by 25%.
In March 2019, Huayun Data announced the legal acquisition of Maxta – a leading hyperconvergence software vendor in the world and has launched new investments and new customer service.
As said by IT director of this database company, Maxta can meet their expectations fully. Maxta is easy to manage and use, and it offers outstanding performance. Compared to conventional SANs and arrays, Maxta software simplifies the management while greatly cutting costs. Upon the deployment of the entire project, it is expected that expenses can be reduced by 80%, and the system can support the launch of new business quickly. They look forward to the business changes brought by Maxta.
