Veritas releases storage solution for OpenStack

By

Data management vendor Veritas Technologies has released a new software-defined storage solution known as Veritas HyperScale for OpenStack.

The company says it is designed to maximise workload performance, lower operating costs and protect data in OpenStack-based cloud environments.

The announcement was made during the OpenStack summit which is underway in Boston and of which Veritas is a premier sponsor.

OpenStack is a free and open-source software platform for cloud computing; it is mostly deployed as infrastructure-as-a-service.

"Organisations look to open-source platforms to drive innovation, while reducing complexity and cost,” said Mike Palmer, executive vice-president and chief product officer of Veritas.

"Today’s announcement helps customers achieve improved data management and protection independent of the hardware – on-premises or in the cloud. This is critical for enterprise adoption of OpenStack.”

A statement said a key feature of HyperScale for OpenStack was a patent-pending dual-plane architecture that distributes storage functionality between separate compute and data planes.

This separation is said to increase performance while maintaining efficiency, allowing for data management tasks, performed at the data plane, to be decoupled from workload processing at the compute plane.

Efficient use of direct attached storage is claimed to help minimise total cost of ownership without compromising performance and resiliency requirements.

“Veritas has a strong heritage in software-defined storage and Veritas HyperScale for OpenStack solves the challenges for OpenStack adopters concerned with performance and reliability of their most demanding workloads,” said Anand Krishnan, executive vice-president for cloud at Canonical, which is best known for its Linux distribution, Ubuntu.

"Canonical believes that by collaborating with Veritas, we will help our mutual customers adopt OpenStack with confidence to extract more value from their data."
