Excelero was inspired by how technology giants like Amazon, Facebook and Google have redefined IT for web-scale applications, leveraging standard servers and shared-nothing architectures to ensure maximum operational efficiency and flexibility. Their approach is referred to as the Software-defined Data Center (SDDC). Based on the same architectural principles and with the same objectives, Excelero has designed a Software-Defined Block Storage solution utilizing client-side services for scale-out applications.

New applications, such as IoT, Big Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence, have a big impact on storage workloads and require a significant transformation in storage architectures. To meet the requirements of these new application workloads, enterprises and service providers are seeking to optimize their infrastructures in the same way as these tech giants.

 

100% Software-defined Storage

Software-defined block storage gives customers the ability to deploy storage infrastructures starting with a few servers and to scale out limitlessly with guaranteed reliability, predictable performance and seamless integration with their infrastructure and applications while maintaining operational simplicity.

 

Highest Distributed NVMe Performance

Excelero’s Software-Defined Storage platform NVMesh® enables customers to design Server SAN infrastructures for the most demanding enterprise and cloud-scale applications, leveraging standard servers and multiple tiers of flash. NVMesh enables customers to pool flash over a network at local speeds.

 

Allows True Convergence

The primary benefit of NVMesh is that it enables true converged infrastructure by logically disaggregating storage from compute. It bypasses the CPU and avoids noisy neighbors, which is ideal for scale-out applications. This approach provides deterministic performance for applications and enables customers to maximize the utilization of their flash drives.

 

Scales Across the Datacenter

Maximizing operational efficiency, requires consolidation of storage silos and the ability to run multiple applications on a single storage platform. NVMesh was designed to leverage any underlying storage medium so applications can be provisioned with volumes that meet all application requirements (scale, performance, availability, reliability, efficiency and cost) and guarantee internal or external SLA’s. This can be done from a central interface (or API) that is very transparent and easy to use.
