ioFabric: Flash-Optimized Software Defined Storage
CEO: Steven Lamb
Toronto-based ioFabric in July came out of stealth mode with the unveiling of its first round of funding, and followed up a month later with the introduction of ioFabric Vicinity, a flash-optimized, software-defined storage solution for multi-vendor data centers.
IoFabric Vicinity deploys as a physical or virtual appliance to provide storage automation to unify existing storage resources, centralize storage management, simplify flash deployment, and improve storage utilization -- all based on application-specific quality-of-service requirements for performance, capacity and data protection.
IoFabric Vicinity automatically migrates data across diverse storage resources depending on required performance, the company said. It discovers storage media in the infrastructure, and continually monitors it for application workload suitability. IoFabric Vicinity is licensed by capacity, with site and perpetual licenses available.
