ScaleIO is a potential game-changer, disrupting the way how companies independent of their size can build new elastic Hyper Converged Private Cloud Infrastructures and how businesses purchase storage systems in the future.
ScaleIO is a solution which enables service providers to build not only a Hyper Converged Cloud which scales from 3 to 1000s of nodes providing high performance at low latency, it provides as well Cloud Framework and hypervisor independency supporting VMware (ESXi), OpenStack (KVM), Linux and in the near future Microsoft.
ScaleIO’s innovative technology called ECS (elastic converged storage) is a software-only solution built for the elastic 3rd generation platforms. It’s Software-Defined-Storage, a virtual Scale-Out storage array built on x86 commodity HW using any combination of solid-state devices, PCIe flash cards and hard drives providing fully protected and shared block LUNs.
