Sunnyvale, Calif., January 12, 2016 – Maxta®, a leading provider of hyper-converged and software-defined storage solutions, has been selected as a finalist for TechTarget’s Product of the Year 2015 award in the Enterprise Storage System Software category. The company was honored for its latest release of the Maxta Storage Platform (MxSP™). Maxta was also nominated as a finalist in the same category for the first release of MxSP in 2013.
The enterprise storage system software finalists in the 2015 Storage magazine/ SearchStorage.com Products of the Year competition span a wide range of technologies from software-defined storage to hyper-convergence. Products that were eligible for consideration in the enterprise storage system software category spanned the following areas: file systems, volume management, storage virtualization software, security software, storage optimization applications, solid-state caching software, cloud storage software, software-defined storage and object storage software.
Maxta MxSP software-defined storage solutions provide organizations the choice to deploy hyper-convergence on any x86 server, use any hypervisor, and any combination of storage devices.

Hyper-scale, enterprise-class data services, and capacity optimization empower organizations to hyper-converge, eliminating the need for SAN or NAS devices.
New features in MxSP 3.1.1 include application-defined storage, the ability to optimize storage attributes independently for multiple applications running on the same cluster. The release also delivers enhanced management providing VM-level visibility, as well as historical and real-time statistics on capacity, latency, IOPS and throughput. MxCloudConnect™, Maxta’s cloud-based reporting and alerting system provides 24/7 proactive support and centralized data analytics.

The products are rated according to their innovation, performance, ease of integration, ease of use, functionality and value. Results will be published in the February issue of Storage magazine and online.
