Big Data Capabilities at Little Data Prices

SoftNAS releases its SoftNAS Professional Edition and SoftNAS Essentials products, for Amazon EC2, VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V

"With SoftNAS, we are making powerful, complex storage technologies simple, reliable and affordable," said Bill Hood (pictured below), founder and CEO of SoftNAS, LLC. as SoftNAS announced today the immediate general availability of its SoftNAS Professional Edition and SoftNAS Essentials products, for Amazon EC2, VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V.

"Instead of multiple devices or software deployments with steep learning curves," Hood continued, "our technology was designed to work within existing architectures. Anyone who understands virtualization can have SoftNAS up and running in no time."

SoftNAS provides network attached storage (NAS) for cloud computing, available as software-as-a-service or as an in-house addition to a server room.

"SoftNAS is a seamless file storage solution," Hood explained. The industry has already taken notice, he said. (CRN included SoftNAS on its list of the top 10 hot storage technologies for 2013.)

SoftNAS, Hood noted, "provides 'Big Data' NAS capabilities at affordable prices for small to medium businesses, data centers and managed service providers and government agencies."

"It comes as no surprise to us that CRN put us on their list of the year's hottest storage technologies," he said.

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. End users now struggle to navigate multiple environments with varying degrees of performance. Companies are unclear on the security of their data and network access. And IT squads are overwhelmed trying to monitor and manage it all.
