vScaler to showcase high performance block storage for private cloud at OpenStack Days UK 2017

London, September 22, 2017: vScaler, an integrated and finely-tuned private cloud platform will exhibit at the OpenStack Days UK conference on September 29th, alongside storage partners Datera, showcasing high-performance block storage. OpenStack Days brings together hundreds of IT executives, cloud operators and technology providers to discuss cloud computing and learn about OpenStack Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platforms.

Building a cloud-based infrastructure with OpenStack historically has been a difficult and complex process. The vScaler hyperconverged 2U private appliance comes fully integrated and takes the deployment complexity out of an OpenStack installation. Built on commodity hardware and using non-proprietary open source software, vScaler’s unique offering means that IT administrators can develop their own in-house expertise rather than having to outsource. vScaler provides customers with a customised management portal that allows you to manage your entire infrastructure from a single mobile-optimised interface. Benefits of vScaler’s offering include high availability, cost-effectiveness, scalability, zero vendor lock-in and a tailor-made service level agreement (SLA).

As part of its exhibition at OpenStack Days UK, vScaler will showcase high-performance block storage for its private cloud appliance, powered by Datera.

Built to deliver intent-based multi-tenant aware storage with the ability to automate to scale through application awareness. The vScaler platform is built on the horizontal scaling paradigm with the ability to scale resources linearly. High-performance block storage software (powered by Datera) runs seamlessly on the vScaler 2U appliance (built on x86 architecture) and delivers heterogeneous hyper-scale infrastructure. The distributed system is completely self-aware, self-adaptive, and self-optimising making it an autonomic organism adapting to the changes in the underlying infrastructure as well as the scale/changes in the workloads.

Designed for modern infrastructure and cloud deployments and including features such as Intent-based provisioning, scale-out design, and automated operations – vScaler is the ideal platform for modern-day software-defined data centres and can take DC automation and efficiency to a whole new level, delivering continuous intelligent infrastructure at transformational speed, agility, and economics.

vScaler CTO David Power will speak at 11.30 in the Broadgate 2 stream of the speaker schedule. David will demonstrate how to integrate the new wave of data storage into a fully featured vScaler cloud deployment.

Competitively priced, secure, fully supported and available immediately, vScaler is poised and ready to simplify your infrastructure. Get in touch to arrange a meeting at OpenStack Days UK 2017 where vScaler is exhibiting on booth 1, or visit www.vscaler.com to find out more.
