REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – November 3, 2014 — / – Coraid®, a leading vendor for public cloud service providers and large enterprise private clouds, announced it will be presenting its recently introduced EtherDrive EX at OpenStack Summit Paris, 3-7th of November in Paris, France.

The Coraid EtherDrive EX is a unified storage solution for block and file storage in massive, multi-petabyte public and private cloud deployments.  It provides superior flexibility that can accommodate the ever-changing workloads of growing companies.  The EtherDrive EX makes drives available on the Ethernet for scaling of storage resources – across the aisle or even across data centers.

Adding storage is as simple as attaching additional EX drives and connecting them using a low latency, high bandwidth data transfer protocol on an Ethernet network.  Coraid’s distributed architecture allows IT managers to independently tune performance, capacity, and availability – based on application requirements – eliminating the need to overprovision.

Coraid recognizes that interest in OpenStack deployments has increased dramatically within both cloud service provider and large Enterprise communities. As such Coraid is allocating greater R&D resources to support this growth. Their solutions, including the EtherDrive EX support this commitment.

Other highlights include:

  • Support for Cinder since OpenStack’s Grizzly release.  Coraid’s Cinder driver is also available on the current Juno version.
  • Documented best practices that leverage the native Linux LVM or Filesystem Cinder driver.

Coraid will be exhibiting in Booth E27 at the Palais des congres in Paris, France.  For more information, please visit: or
