A Single, Scale-out Platform for Virtual and Non-Virtual Workloads

Coho DataStream 2.7 benefits users with:

  • A single platform to host Virtual and non-Virtual workloads – enabling enterprises to cover 80% to 90% of their datacenter production workloads, thereby removing the complexity involved in choosing different storage solutions for virtual and non-virtual workloads.
  • Scale-out private cloud environment – increasing ease and efficiency on the Coho Data storage platform. Cinder Volumes combined with Coho Data’s state-of-the-art scale-out architecture allow users to deploy a worry free private cloud environment.
  • Fine granular management – allowing users of Coho Data systems to monitor and manage the individual files that comprise the application. For instance, if it is a virtual environment then the user can view, manage, and monitor the individual files that make up the virtual machine.
  • OpenStack support with Coho’s DataStream Cinder API integration – enabling organizations to build OpenStack block storage infrastructure that dynamically scales both performance and capacity in response to application demands.

“We have consistently heard from customers about wanting a single platform at their datacenter and the 2.7 release is paramount for us to address this particular need,” said Ramana Jonnala, founder and CEO at Coho Data. “Moreover, our platform is designed from the bottom up to address true scale out, which when combined with the ability to host heterogeneous environments, addresses today’s customer needs.”
