Efficiency. Flexibility. Simplicity. Affordability. These three features ought to be industry standards, but you’d be amazed how rarely they’re found together. With software-defined datacenters (SDDC’s), these are exactly the types of benefits you can get. Some people out there remain convinced that “software-defined” anything is nothing more than a buzzword or a fad because certain solutions are built on inferior and incomplete SDDC implementations. But we certainly believe the benefits of SDDC’s are not only available for use today , but represent the future of IT. We’ve built a better SDDC — yCenter.
We believe in making cutting edge technology attainable because there’s no point in creating something great if nobody can afford to use it. With yCenter, you get free access to things that other companies charge an arm and a leg for, like data deduplication. KVM hypervisors are a standard part of yCenter, which are also included at no additional cost. Not only do you get all these features for no extra cost, Yottabyte yCenter is the only hyper-converged infrastructure software solution on the market to include networking capabilities, making it a truly complete SDDC solution.
SDDC’s are all about taking what you already have and getting more out of it. You won’t pay more, the size of your datacenter won’t get any bigger, and you won’t see your energy bills skyrocket; the only thing that will grow is your datacenter’s performance. Yottabyte yCenter can give you five times the performance, for ⅕ the cost and in a fraction of the physical space of a traditional datacenter.
Nobody likes to think about things going wrong with their datacenters. But things do go wrong sometimes and you don’t want to be caught unprepared if it does. yCenter is an incredibly resilient SDDC and makes getting back on track a not-so-big ordeal. A datacenter with zero downtime is a very real possibility! The low-cost, modular nature of yCenter makes it easy to have redundant systems with synchronized data, eliminating the possibility of a single point of failure. yCenter also offers continuous data protection with our snap-sync technology, making it a breeze to restore data to an earlier point in time.
Flexibility & Simplicity
SDDCs make IT management a much simpler and more flexible process than it ever has been before. As an example, if you need to test an application or patch, you can easily clone your entire datacenter (in under a second) and try the update out without impacting any of your production systems. You’ll have a faster turnaround on requests and since your IT staff won’t have to spend as much time on maintenance, they’ll be able to do more work in other, more business-impacting capacities.
