SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Yoram Novick, founder, president and CEO of Maxta, a developer of the VM-centric storage platform MxSP™ that turns standard servers into a converged compute and storage solution for virtualized environments, will present on software-defined storage at the inaugural Data Storage Innovation Conference (DSI), produced by the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA), April 22-24 in Santa Clara, Calif.
Novick will speak to IT decision-makers, technology implementers, and those who influence, implement and support data storage innovation about the software-defined platform, how it works to simpify IT, and how it achieves cost savings. His talk will be on April 24 at 2:05pm.
"Users today can architect their storage infrastructure to eliminate storage management and storage arrays altogether with a platform that integrates and delivers compute and storage power on the same pool of commodity hardware," said Novick. "This new model offers compelling savings,investment protection and simplification since there is only one abstracted system to manage versus isolated physical systems."
In addition to Novick's insights on software-defined storage, the DSI Conference will cover cloud, big data, data management, and network-connected storage including new innovations and updates to many existing storage technologies. Actual deployment blueprints, innovative implementations, case studies, and best practices will be offered along with other technical and professional development sessions.
The Maxta Storage Platform is a hypervisor-agnostic, highly resilient enterprise storage platform for the virtual data center. It fully integrates with server virtualization at all levels from user interface to data management, while supporting all possible deployments of virtual data centers, including private, public and hybrid clouds. Through its software-only solution, Maxta turns standard servers into a converged compute and storage solution. This results in greater simplicity and economics over external storage arrays.
About Maxta Maxta is redefining enterprise storage by delivering a storage platform that is simple, agile and cost efficient for virtualized environments as well as supporting a wide spectrum of enterprise-class data services and capacity optimizations.
