Data Storage Companies to watch 2019
"Software-defined storage startup StorOne Inc. seeks to find all the storage you have hiding behind different hypervisor-based workloads. StorOne's Total Resource Utilization (TRU) uses storage capacity from any storage device. Despite their differing protocols, blocks, files and objects use TRU to share drives or volumes at wire speed, with no changes to back-end applications or devices."
CRN looks at eight innovative storage products from startups that are taking the market by storm.
"The company claims its software, which is available through distribution, offers 100-percent drive performance utilization with a cost of up to 80 percent less than that of existing high-performance storage arrays."
"StorONE is a New York-based developer of software-defined storage technology that can be used for an all-flash or hybrid array, virtual storage, secondary storage, or cloud storage, and that supports all protocols including block, file and object storage – all powered by the same software. The company says its StorOne S1 software works with any hardware and is future-proof. StorOne in June claimed its software reached a half-million IOPs when configured with 24 Seagate SSDs with all enterprise-class features turned on in a two-node VMware cluster."
