SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Elastifile, the enterprise hybrid cloud data management company, today announced that its cross-cloud data fabric software will be integrated with Dell EMC servers to offer the next generation of scale-out NAS storage appliances. Developed in collaboration with Dell EMC OEM Solutions, the offering is designed to enable a new generation of on-premises and cloud storage solutions for enterprises and service providers, and it can now be purchased through Dell Sales and partners across North America and EMEA.
Based on Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, the solution features the Elastifile Cloud File System and CloudConnect cloud transfer and object tiering. It is orderable now in two all-flash models, optimized for performance or capacity, to provide customers with a best-of-breed turnkey appliance experience. Dell Technologies Capital is a strategic investor in Elastifile.
Deployable as all-flash dedicated storage appliances, this new offering provides customers' on-premises storage workloads with all the cloud benefits of elastic scale-out performance, efficiency, manageability, and cost. Currently supported to 100 scale-out nodes, the performance model features IOPS from 1M to 26M IOPS and bandwidth from 4.8 to 120 GB/sec for 35 to 860TB. The capacity model provides 138TB to 3.5PB with similar performance. Both offer breakthrough linear performance growth with consistent 1-2ms latency, no matter how many nodes are in the cluster, all with tremendous advantages in $/IOPS, $/GB, and overall total cost of ownership.
Elastifile delivers the performance, consistency and elastic scalability necessary to support the broad spectrum of enterprise and service provider workloads. This scale-out appliance is an ideal on-premises and hybrid cloud solution for mixed-workload consolidation and infrastructure modernization, and high-performance NAS for stateful containers and HPC use cases like life sciences, electronic design automation, media and entertainment, and more. This is a winning combination for enterprise customers, service providers, and value-added resellers looking for a simple, total solution.
"We are delighted to offer our enterprise customers this appliance with Dell EMC OEM Solutions to provide seamless storage and data management across true hybrid clouds," said Amir Aharoni, CEO and co-founder of Elastifile. "By packaging Elastifile on Dell EMC servers with Elastifile's hybrid cloud data fabric, our joint customers can easily deploy and elastically expand. This ensures that they always have the capacity and performance they need to enable most demanding scale-out workloads, with integrated cloud connectivity and object tiering."
The appliance includes the Elastifile license with 3 years of support pre-paid. Service, support and elastic expansion on demand are provided by Dell EMC, with software support provided by Elastifile.
Elastifile is redefining the way data is stored and managed, enabling seamless deployment of private and hybrid cloud solutions. With enterprises and service providers looking to support both on-premises and cloud workflows across both active and inactive data workloads, Elastifile uniquely delivers this to application, analytics, and infrastructure teams as the single global namespace of a distributed file and object system.
