Seanodes Solves Storage Dilemma for Cloud Services Provider
Boston, MA (December 16, 200) – Seanodes, the creator and leading developer of Shared Internal Storage solutions, today announced that cloud services provider Aenigma has developed a new multi-tiered storage infrastructure backed by Exanodes software to increase the reliability and performance of its High Availability Application Hosting Platform for as little as one-twentieth the cost of a similarly configured Fibre Channel SAN.
Delivering Software as a Service (SaaS) Aenigma provides an alternative to on-premise software deployment offering all the benefits and advantages of high availability and enterprise-grade business tools such as Microsoft Project Server, Office Sharepoint Server and Exchange Server on demand, at a competitive price. As a member of the VMware Service Provider Program Aenigma provides companies with on-demand Virtual Infrastructure, which can support any operating system, Windows or Linux and any compatible software stack they need. This “pay as you go” model reduces clients’ operational and capital expenses, improves access to the latest business applications and eliminates the security risks inherent in collaboration between third parties.
The company has chosen Exanodes to serve as an all-around solution that provides Aenigma with both shared internal storage as well as external storage through iSCSI arrays. The versatility of Exanodes allows Aenigma to provide multiple storage tiers as part of its network architecture to improve the reliability and performance of the system by separating data by its value to enable high performance computing on one level with non-persistent data stored to another.
The solution, featuring VMWare ESX Dual Quad Core Servers with more than 10 virtual machines per server and several 1 TB disks embedded in the multiple storage servers as if they were a powerful shared storage pool, has been tested against a leading FC-SAN offering with the Exanodes system showing high reliability and robust performance between a tenth and a twentieth of the price of the box. Exanodes delivers on its ability to provide cost-correct capacity expansion capabilities while eliminating the need for traditional external RAID storage and its associated costs.
