FormationOne Dynamic Storage Platform
Private cloud storage built on the FormationOne dynamic storage platform from Fremont, Calif.-based Formation Data Systems delivers configurable block, file and object storage services to support a broad range of use cases including the ability to migrate data into public cloud infrastructures using the AWS S3 interface. FormationOne software is integrated with partner-provided server hardware and service offerings to let enterprises build self-contained private storage clouds and service providers build managed storage-as-a-service offerings.
FormationOne includes integrated continuous data protection to facilitate automation of snapshots and clones via REST APIs. It also includes dynamic quality of service capabilities that support mixed application workloads with native multitenancy. Inline deduplication, compression and encryption make the data efficient and secure. FormationOne also includes SafeGuard, a software module that replicates cloud data to private data centers or public clouds.
