Coraid: Network Storage, Ethernet SAN, Cloud Computing, Virtualization - solutions
Virtualization has transformed the data center and is changing all aspects of IT operations – including greater demands on storage and availability, and unexpected bottlenecks in performance. Current SAN technologies (Fibre Channel, iSCSI) are too expensive, too complex, and poorly adapted for dynamic virtualization workloads. EtherDrive was purpose-built for these challenges. Coraid has radically simplified virtual storage networking with AoE (ATA over Ethernet) which runs on top of Ethernet, enabling unique advantages for virtualized environments: Massive bandwidth to disks, less head contention, more independent disk heads, unlimited scalability (>60k nodes).
