DriveScale, of Sunnyvale, Calif., exited stealth mode in May with a new scale-out infrastructure that converges compute and storage into industry-standard rack servers. The solution is designed to let customers dynamically adjust compute and storage infrastructure while optimizing resource allocation without the need to over-provision those resources, including in big data environments via a partnership with Hortonworks.

DriveScale automatically discovers available physical data center resources from a rack-scale architecture consisting of pools of industry-standard servers and disk storage. The pool can be disaggregated into separate pools of compute and storage resources and reassembled into logical clusters and software-defined physical nodes as needed.

DriveScale's investors include Ingrasys Technology, a subsidiary of Taiwan-based Foxconn, the world's largest contract manufacturer.
