Making cloud-native storage available across the enterprise has proven tricky over the past few years, mainly because existing IT operators were struggling to consistently ensure SLAs and SLOs. EMA Top 3 award winner SoftIron HyperDrive created a unified enterprise-grade appliance that makes Ceph block-, file-, and object storage services available to any app, modern or monolithic, across the enterprise. Best of all, HyperDrive offers storage-on-tap that can be managed by current operations staff and at the same time offers full-stack visibility that allows instant mapping of storage disks across the application stack.

In this discussion, Andrew Molony, VP of Strategy at SoftIron explains how HyperDrive was engineered from the ground up to optimize Ceph performance, power efficiency, availability, and operations cost. SoftIron’s HyperDrive Storage appliance has been selected by Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) to receive a Top 3 Award in their “EMA Top 3 Enterprise Decision Guide 2020” report. HyperDrive was selected as a leading storage solution in the “Hybrid Cloud Management – Enterprise Data Services” category for the awards. The report recognizes vendors that have excellent alignment with the key customer challenges identified by EMA.
