Maxta Wins Intel Developer Forum's 'Most Innovative App' Award

Maxta MaxDeploy Honored for Being the First Hyper-Converged Solution to Run on the New Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v3 Processors, Providing Users with 40%+ Performance Improvement

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxta, a leader in hyper-convergence and software-defined storage, today announced that it was awarded the Most Innovative App award at the Intel Developer Forum for its innovative MaxDeploy™, the first hyper-converged solution to run on the Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v3 processors. According to the judges, "Maxta demonstrated significant improvements over the previous generation of x86 servers in number of I/O transactions per second, read-write latency and the number of Microsoft Exchange users deployed on a server."

Twenty-five demonstrations were selected as finalists to vie for awards in nine categories. A panel of press and analysts selected finalists that displayed innovation in the integration of suites of hardware, software, services and support that creates new capabilities for all facets in people's lives – focusing on productivity, information and entertainment.

Maxta's innovative software-defined storage continues to deliver on the promise of hyper-convergence by providing greater choice, flexibility and savings while running on standard x86 servers.  Recently announced MxSP features provide improved VM-centric automation, simplified data protection, greater availability and resiliency with support for VMware Stretch Storage Metro Cluster for continuous availability in case of site, data center or rack failure, along with improved self-healing capabilities to detect and auto-correct inconsistencies in data. Performance enhancements include improved caching algorithms and improved flash utilization to deliver consistent and predictable latency.

Performance testing shows that MxSP running on the new Xeon E5 processor increases VM density and storage performance for VMs in virtualized environments. A new MaxDeploy Reference Architecture featuring the Intel Xeon E5 processor and Maxta MxSP software provides significant improvements over previous generations of x86 servers in the number of I/O transactions per second, read and write latency, and the number of Virtual Machines deployed on a server. By using MaxDeploy with the Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600 v3 family, Intel NVMe based Solid-State Drive Data Center Family, and Intel Ethernet Controller XL710, enterprises now have the flexibility to scale their environment on-demand without over provisioning resources.

"We came to the Intel Developer Forum to show the agility of MxSP in providing unprecedented time to market and the ability to narrow the gap between availability of a new x86 platform and the availability of a hyper-converged solution running on that new platform," said Yoram Novick, Maxta founder, president and CEO. "We are honored to receive the 'Most Innovative App' award and are pleased with the attendee feedback on how businesses can benefit from our software-defined storage solutions". 

Unlike other platforms on the market, MxSP is hypervisor-agnostic and includes features required in virtual environments such as end-to-end data integrity, efficient snapshots and cloning, and compression/deduplication for capacity optimization. Its simplified data protection options include an automated scheduler for snapshot/retention management and simple recovery. An enhanced dashboard displays performance and capacity information in real time.

Recently, WebRTC has a lot of eyes from market. The use cases of WebRTC are expanding - video chat, online education, online health care etc. Not only for human-to-human communication, but also IoT use cases such as machine to human use cases can be seen recently. One of the typical use-case is remote camera monitoring. With WebRTC, people can have interoperability and flexibility for deploying monitoring service. However, the benefit of WebRTC for IoT is not only its convenience and interopera...

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
