Datera Data Services Platform 3.3 Released
Datera announced what would be in the 3.3 version of its Data Services Platform. Datera was founded in June 2013 and provides data storage software and systems. The company posted a remarkable 400% growth in the first quarter of 2019, driven mainly by partner sales. This rapid growth is even more impressive coming on top of their 240% growth in the first half of 2018. Datera also recently saw a four-fold increase in total deployed petabytes of storage powered by the Datera software platform.
What is Datera Data Services Platform?
Datera's Data Services Platform is its core offering, and the upcoming 3.3 release will feature four major upgrades. The biggest of these updates is a planned 25% to 50% increase in IOPS per data node by better harnessing of the underlying NVMe, Flash, and hybrid storage media above and beyond the average <150 microseconds throughput seen across all deployments. The next upgrade is enhanced precision of data placement across the environment to better enable performance at the scales Datera Data Services Platform is being relied on now. The third upgrade comes in the form of better compression and deduplication. This, combined with the platform's ability to monitor and fine-tune data usage without human intervention, should result in significant savings for their customers. The fourth major upgrade is an expansion of Datera's qualified server options including HPE's composable ProLiant DL platform and the introduction of new solution bundles available from HPE that combine Datera's software, HPE ProLiant Servers and StoreFabric M-Series Switches from Mellanox Technologies.
