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.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
