OpenStack offers many advantages for organisations building out their cloud environments, including flexibility and community-driven innovation. However, enterprises looking to deploy OpenStack in production typically find its storage management capabilities wanting from the perspective of management complexity and business resiliency. Enterprises are also challenged when it comes to ensuring protection of their data and providing the necessary performance – especially for their tier one applications. Meeting these fundamental needs is critical for enterprises to proceed confidently with their OpenStack deployments.

Veritas HyperScale for OpenStack is a software-defined storage management solution uniquely developed for OpenStack based clouds. It leverages direct attached storage (DAS) and provides enterprise-strength capabilities that enable robust, production-scale deployment while meeting performance and data protection needs. Learn how this innovative solution, coupled with other relevant Veritas offerings, solve the remaining issues around implementing OpenStack within the enterprise.

  • I’ve personally never heard of companies who can produce a paper for you until word got around among my college groupmates. My professor asked me to write a research paper based on a field I have no idea about. My research skills are also very poor. So, I thought I’d give it a try. I chose a writer who matched my writing style and fulfilled every requirement I proposed. I turned my paper in and I actually got a good grade. I highly recommend ⇒ ⇐
