This allows companies to deploy VMs and scale horizontally with flexibility and interoperability when using company's storage systems.
OpenStack is an open source cloud software that is backed by some of the biggest names in public and private clouds. As a commitment to storage solutions in cloud environments, Infortrend developed a Cinder driver that allows OpenStack clouds to oversee and manage the operations of the company's storage systems. The driver is fully customized for compatibility with OpenStack Cinder and it ensures company's storage systems offer reliable and optimum block-level data transfers.
"Infortrend's commitment to cloud solutions is in response to the current business and storage trend. The support for OpenStack means our product can be easily integrated into the cloud datacenters, and users can be benefit from the compatibility, flexibility and scalability Infortrend storage systems provide," said Thomas Kao, senior director, product planning, Infortrend.
