Diamanti Ships First Bare-Metal HCI Container Platform & Raises $18M

Today Diamanti made two announcements. First they are announcing the general availability of their new bare-metal hyper-converged infrastructure container platform, Diamanti D10. According to Diamanti, the D10 will allows companies to deploy Docker containers in seconds with guaranteed service levels at a fraction of the cost of traditional data center infrastructure. Diamanti is also announcing that it has raised an additional $18 million in series B funding.

The new Diamanti D10 is the first platform that brings the efficiency of bare-metal containers to hyper-converged architecture. Diamanti claims the D10 can eliminate the I/O bottlenecks as well as the network and storage issues one would encounter in traditional infrastructure. The D10 comes pre-integrated with everything one would need for containerized applications such as container software, compute, networking and storage resources. The D10 also enforces an end-to-end quality-of-service from the CPU through the network to storage. Diamanti claims the D10 can reduce storage latencies to 100μs.
