Over the past twenty years, the world around storage has gone through revolutionary change—driven by virtualization and cloud. Despite this, conventional storage is built on the same underlying architecture as it was twenty years ago.
HTBASE challenges convention with a storage system built specifically for composable and cloud environments. The ‘storage quo’ forces you to work with physical-world concepts like LUNs, volumes, RAID, striping and more. Conversely, HTBASE lets you focus only on what matters-your applications. That level of granularity massively simplifies storage management, transforming it from tedious troubleshooting to hands-free and highly automated.
HTBASE brings to the market a storage layer uniquely suited to support your Composable Infrastructure and Cloud effort.
Maestro is a framework whose physical compute, storage and network fabric resources are treated as services. With Maestro, resources are logically pooled so that administrators don't have to physically configure hardware to support a specific software application.
Maestro is the next evolution in data center computing because it enables IT organizations to create the infrastructure they need with incredible velocity, and it does so while reducing the operational cost and complexity of traditional silo approaches. It’s ideal for traditional workloads and environments, as well as newer cloud and mobile apps
A highly composable storage system provides recombinant components that can be selected and assembled in various combinations to satisfy specific user requirements.
There is no complicated configuration, and the unit of management is individual virtual machines and applications.
Individual “lanes” for each virtual machines and applications guarantee quality of service, avoidingtraffic jams and delivering a better user experience.
Monitor performance gauge. With that, organizations can monitor and plan consumption. That transparency allows you never have overprovisioning.
HTFS, Maestro's storage layer, manages each virtual machine disk individually, eliminating the conflict over resources across your network. With that, Administrators can set the exact quality of service to each Virtual machine.
HTFS is a distributed, scalable, fault-tolerant and highly available file system. It allows users to combine disk space located on many servers, both locally and in the cloud, into a single name space. HTFS makes files secure by keeping all the data in many replicas spread over available servers.
Disk and server failures are handled transparently without any downtime or loss of data. If storage requirements grow, you can easily scale an existing HTFS installation just by adding new servers or individual disks - at any time, without any downtime. The system will automatically move some data to the newly added servers or disks, because it continuously takes care of balancing disk usage across all connected nodes. Removing servers or disks is as easy as adding new ones.
HTFS is part and embedded into Maestro's software and appliance editions
