With the growth and complexity of the datacenter matched only by the rising costs of storage, computing, networking and security, businesses today must balance the needs of their IT infrastructure against increasingly tighter budgets and reduced IT headcount. Yottabyte YottaBlox, powered by yCenter, is a complete software-defined infrastructure platform that provides software-based storage, virtual computing (servers) and software-defined networking on scale-out building block appliances that provide dramatic flexibility, simplicity, scale and cost savings.
A strategic partnership between the University of Michigan and software company Yottabyte promises to unleash a new wave of data-intensive research by providing a flexible computing cloud for complex computational analyses of sensitive and restricted data.
The Yottabyte Research Cloud will provide scientists high performance, secure and flexible computing environments that enable the analysis of sensitive data sets restricted by federal privacy laws, proprietary access agreements, or confidentiality requirements. Previously, the complexity of building secure and project-specific IT platforms often made the computational analysis of sensitive data prohibitively costly and time consuming.Read the full article
Yottabyte, a leading provider of next-generation software-defined infrastructure solutions, today announced it has been included in the list of "Cool Vendors" in the "Cool Vendors for Compute Platforms" report by Gartner, Inc.
"Our selection as a 'Cool Vendor' by Gartner is a testament to the level of creativity and innovation we've applied to the IT challenges facing businesses today," says Duane Tursi, Principal of Yottabyte. "At a time when infrastructure costs are rising and IT resources are being trimmed, our forward-thinking virtual datacenter platform is tremendously versatile and hits every important benchmark."Read the full article
Yottabyte, a software-defined datacenter start-up, today announced that it has been named a Tech Trailblazer Award finalist in the virtualization category.
The Tech Trailblazer Awards are specifically designed for start-ups and are judged by a global panel of technology experts as well as the voting tech public. The awards program recognizes privately-held organizations around the world that are developing innovative solutions. The finalists have been selected through an initial judging round determined by a diverse panel of technology industry experts.
yCenter, Yottabyte's cloud-building software, creates a virtual datacenter environment that incorporates storage, compute and networking.Read the full article
Its only chance is a diagonal move into hyperconvergence with a hope of building an endgame machine of its own. Yottabyte could give it the software, SimpliVity the hardware (along with a better underlying storage platform than anyone else, anywhere has). The alternative is probably courting Nutanix.
If NetApp bought Yottabyte and SimpliVity both, managed to integrate the products and didn't botch the job like NetApp usually do, they might just have a chance. NetApp is so much bigger than both companies that it could get away with dominating those relationships.Read the full article
yCenter includes storage, compute, networking, automation, orchestration and analytics. Traditionally, these would each be a platform unto themselves; with yCenter these are all base features incorporated into a single platform.
yCenter’s datacenter convergence model allows for a simplified, “building-block” approach to the creation of a high-performance virtual datacenter environment. This can help create a competitive advantage for your organization by reducing the time it takes to create and implement a fully enterprise ready cloud solution.Read the full article
The result of years of this R&D is yCenter. It can be a public cloud, a private cloud or a hybrid cloud. Yottabyte has gone through and solved almost all the tough problems first – erasure coded storage, built-in layer 2 and 3 networking extensibility, management UI that doesn't suck – and is only now thinking about solving the easy ones.
Yottabyte didn't push back and say it needed to control all aspects of the ecosystem. it didn't come back demanding a means to limit the service providers' role, own every element of the customer relationship or otherwise marginalise everyone except itself.Read the full article on www.theregister.co.uk
yCenter is the intelligent software platform inside YottaBlox appliances that delivers a complete datacenter infrastructure solution in a software-defined package. Yottabyte’s hyperconverged storage, computing and networking YottaBlox infrastructure appliances redefine datacenters by offering simplicity, unmatched flexibility and immense scalability. By implementing yCenter, businesses can reduce datacenter costs by more than 70%.
