LAS VEGAS, Dec. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Public or private cloud operators can now increase profitability and offer customers differentiated cloud services with MPSTOR's new Orkestra™ Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform based on OpenStack™.

Orkestra IaaS is the newest addition to MPSTOR's Orkestra solution suite which integrates Storage Array Management (Orkestra SAM) with Software Defined Storage for virtualization (Orkestra SDS). Orkestra IaaS makes the datacenter infrastructure invisible, programmable and immediately available to end users, allowing them to self-serve the exact quantity and quality of data storage, networking and computing resources required for their applications. For the cloud operator, Orkestra-IaaS integrates OpenStack and MPSTOR's scale out, multi-fabric storage management software for block, file and object storage in a single distribution.

"Cloud operators need to deliver cloud infrastructure at the right capacity and service level so user applications work properly," said Mo Hassine, MPSTOR. "By using open platform hardware, storage media tiers and a range of fabrics managed by Orkestra IaaS, the cloud operator reduces capital expenditures and labor costs while offering a differentiated SLA-based storage service that can be easily scaled out and scaled up."

Cloud operators can use the IaaS platform to build unified private cloud services by integrating it with a new type of cloud forwarding fabric, such as that developed by Intune Networks.

"The Orkestra IaaS platform is a key component to providing better utilization and management of storage resources," said John Dunne, co-founder and CTO of Intune Networks. "When it's combined with Intune's cloud forwarding fabric, it gives IT managers a unified private cloud that will drive down costs and increase flexibility. These new and open technologies are creating the first generation of private cloud services to have truly integrated IT and networks into a simplified building block of cloud infrastructure."


Founded in 2006 in Cork, Ireland, MPSTOR is backed by venture capital and private investors. A dynamic and expanding company with offices in Ireland, U.S., and Taiwan, MPSTOR has won a number of innovation awards with their cloud infrastructure software. Visit http://www.mpstor.com
