PORTLAND, Oregon, April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –
Cloud service providers to provision and manage storage volumes from
OpenStack clients and API
CloudByte, the first company to guarantee quality of service (QoS) to every
application from a shared storage platform, announced today the integration with
OpenStack(R) Block Storage (Cinder). As part of its OpenStack integration efforts, the
company has developed a driver for the Cinder framework that enables service providers to
provision QoS-aware CloudByte storage volumes right from OpenStack clients and API.
CloudByte also announced its participation in the OpenStack Spring Summit
[http://www.openstack.org/summit/portland-2013 ], taking place on April 15-18 in Portland.
Felix Xavier, CloudByte’s founder and CTO, will be demonstrating the OpenStack integration
on April 16 at 4:40 p.m. local time in Hall B at the Oregon Convention Center.
“The development of the ElastiStor driver for OpenStack is an important milestone for
us as we integrate deeper with the open source computing platform,” said Felix Xavier.
“This integration follows our recent VMware and Citrix certifications and development of
the vCenter plugin, reinforcing our commitment to easily integrate our storage solutions
within cloud service providers’ ecosystems. Unlike legacy storage solutions, ElastiStor is
architected for today’s cloud environments and allows cloud service providers to host
performance-sensitive applications without creating any dedicated storage silos.”
Service providers using the OpenStack platform can now create, snapshot and manage
CloudByte storage volumes using Cinder API or the OpenStack Horizon client. Each of these
volumes can be configured in terms of capacity and IOPS. With CloudByte’s on-demand
performance, OpenStack customers can now build solutions that compete effectively with
