VSS Monitoring Uses Maxta's MxSP To Improve IT Performance

Storage has become a very cheap commodity in the IT industry. Per gigabyte, its price has gone down significantly compared to what we've seen in the early to late 90’s. Still, with all this improvement, we cannot deny that it is nevertheless difficult to manage large storage infrastructures without a little bit of help. The price and size of storage units may have changed, but the nature of storage itself has been quite the same. Computers, when networked, still operate like islands, meaning that they use their own hard drives and little else.

VSS Monitoring (News - Alert), a company that makes and distributes network packet brokers, has decided to use an innovative solution to counter this in its internal IT operations: Maxta's VM storage platform, known as MxSP. The platform will now help VSS Monitoring manage its growing IT infrastructure by automating its virtualization and making it easier to manage. This is done by unifying the storage that each machine has, so that VSS would not need to use any storage arrays like NAS to achieve the same end. This is all done through Maxta's special software that works on any commodity server, and it works without any compromise on scalability.

Yoram Novick, CEO of Maxta, said, “The Maxta Storage Platform meets the storage needs of even the most demanding test-and-development environments by reducing complexity and cost while improving productivity and time to market. By providing VSS Monitoring with the ability to meet its objectives while staying within budget, we were able to help them improve performance and simplify IT.”

The latest trend in business solutions has been focused primarily in making the navigation of complex IT territories much simpler, rather than increasing complexity by adding gizmos to the whole package. Solutions like Maxta's MxSP appear on the market to meet this demand while helping companies cut down on capital expenditures.
