CloudByte makes storage predictable, affordable and easy
even as you scale to thousands of applications
Guaranteed Storage QoS within Shared Storage
Share your storage and deliver predictable performance to every application. For the first time ever, ElastiStor allows storage endpoints to be defined beyond capacity, in terms of IOPS, throughput and latency. This allows applications with diverse workloads to be guaranteed QoS from a shared storage platform. Together with linear scaling, a single extensible shared storage platform from ElastiStor can now replace legacy solutions’ dedicated storage silos. By fully sharing storage and optimally utilizing resources, ElastiStor steeply cuts down your storage footprint, leading to 80-90% cost savings over 3-5 years.
On-Demand Performance Provisioning
Do you still manually configure hardware to provision performance for any new application? Break the need for hardwiring storage with ElastiStor's on-demand provisioning. Just enter the required SLA/QoS parameters and let ElastiStor automate node selection and resource allocation for you. ElastiStor includes an intelligent heuristics daemon which continuously learns the quantity of various controller resources needed to deliver the required QoS.
vCenter-like Administration Console
ElastiStor makes managing storage as easy as managing VMs, even as you scale to hundreds of applications. Storage admins can now comprehensively manage the entire storage cluster, spanning across multiple sites, from a single web-based console. Further, ElastiStor gives you unprecedented access and control over resource usage within shared storage, right down to the application-level granularity.
REST APIs and Plugins for Easy Integration
Every action performed at ElastiStor admin console translates into a REST based API call in the backend. Using these REST APIs, admins can comprehensively provision and manage ElastiStor volumes from VMware vCenter, Citrix XenCenter, OpenStack Horizon, or any other admin portal. Our plugin for VMware vCenter allows admins to create and manage QoS-aware VMs right from vCenter console.
N-way High Availability
ElastiStor enables N-way High Availability, exponentially increasing reliability (mean time to failure), compared to the standard 2-way HA provided by existing solutions. CloudByte's storage un-fragmentation and its patented TSM architecture make N-way HA affordable and feasible.
A much requested feature from the cloud service providers, delegated administration empowers both CSPs and its customers to monitor and control storage volumes. Management privileges vary based on the admin functionality – for example, a super admin can manage the entire storage cluster, whereas a customer admin can manage just the storage resources allotted to that particular customer.
