Coraid Announces Alliance With Splunk to Tame Large-Scale Machine Data With Scale-Out Storage
REDWOOD CITY, CA, Aug 21, 2013 (Marketwired via COMTEX) --
Coraid(R), a leading provider of scale-out Ethernet storage
solutions, today announced a technical partnership with Splunk Inc.
to enable large-scale machine data analytics in Coraid enterprise and
cloud data centers through Splunk(R) Enterprise. Splunk Enterprise
and Coraid EtherDrive(R) are qualified to interoperate for
high-performance data collection, indexing and analytics. The
combination of the powerful data collection, indexing and analytical
capabilities of Splunk software and the flexible scale-out storage
architecture offered by Coraid EtherDrive allows customers to simply
and cost-effectively deploy market-leading analytics capabilities for
their machine data.
Coraid's "Virtual DAS" (VDAS) technology enables ultimate simplicity
for connecting multiple storage arrays over Ethernet to Splunk
software, allowing customers to scale storage independently from
compute resources. EtherDrive arrays can flexibly mix SATA, SAS and
SSD drives to handle a wide variety of workloads and performance
"We're pleased to be working with Coraid to help organizations
collect, monitor, analyze and visualize machine-generated data.
Splunk and Coraid combine to deliver a solution for organizations
that need a scalable, comprehensive, cost-effective approach to
operational intelligence," said Bill Gaylord, senior vice president
of business development, Splunk. "Advanced operational intelligence
software combined with a scale-out, flexible storage infrastructure
ensures that even complex data center environments can be managed
effectively. Making advanced storage-performance analytics available
to Splunk users further enriches their experience."
CORAID AND SPLUNK PLATFORMS
Coraid offers a full range of block, file and storage management
products that deliver breakthrough elasticity and simplicity at scale
using a new generation of Ethernet-based storage networking. Coraid
EtherDrive storage arrays deliver true scale-out capabilities and
provide an attractive alternative to controller-based storage
architectures, growing to multiple petabytes without expensive
forklift upgrades. The versatility of Coraid EtherDrive allows
customers to mix and match SATA, SAS and SSD drives in each storage
array and use the same building blocks for a wide range of
application needs. Coraid's VDAS technology allows customers to
easily deploy and scale their storage infrastructure as needs grow,
combining the simplicity of local storage with the flexibility and
scalability of shared storage.
Splunk Enterprise collects, indexes, monitors, analyzes and
visualizes any machine-generated data from virtually any source,
format or location in real time. This includes data streaming from
packaged and custom applications, app servers, web servers,
databases, networks, virtual machines, telecoms equipment, operating
systems, sensors and much more.
"Splunk users generate large data volumes, which needs storage that
can be scaled up as data grows, or as new Splunk applications are
developed," said Tim Stammers, senior analyst, 451 Research.
"Coraid's storage has been designed to meet both of those needs, and
at an aggressive price point that also suits Splunk deployments."
"The partnership of Coraid and Splunk demonstrates the flexibility
and power of an open system architecture," said Doug Dooley, vice
president of product management, Coraid. "We are excited to work with
Splunk to deliver scale and superior price-performance to customers
deploying operational analytics solutions for their infrastructure.
The joint solution will allow enterprise and cloud customers to
efficiently deliver improved service, uptime and security while
managing the cost of exploding data volumes."
