Bloomfield Township, MI (PRWEB) May 05, 2014

Yottabyte, a rising star in software-defined data storage and datacenters, has rolled out a completely remodeled website. Revamped yottabyte.com features a more robust interface and cleaner design than the previous version, making information much more consumable and offering a better overall user experience.

With the new site in play, it’s never been easier for businesses to learn about Yottabyte’s innovative and cost-effective storage solutions, said Duane Tursi, Principal of Yottabyte.

“With the costs of data storage rising, administrators today must balance their needs against increasingly tighter budgets,” said Tursi. “The new site is designed to help administrators better understand how Yottabyte’s proprietary software-based services can help businesses save money and become more secure.”

Yottabyte offers software-based data storage, virtual computing and software-defined networking solutions from its offices in Bloomfield Township, MI. In April 2014 the company announced yStor 2.3, designed for companies that want to build scalable data storage infrastructures with information in multiple locations while keeping it protected and synchronized.

For a price as low as about one cent per Gigabyte per month, yStor 2.3 is the most affordable enterprise storage platform on the market.

Yottabyte is also the inventor of yCenter, its flagship software-defined datacenter. Built for server revisualization and cloud computing, yCenter allows users to seamlessly deploy applications, provision VMs and storage, and reconfigure the infrastructure in minutes, without changing the underlying hardware.

“From yStor to yCenter and our other technologies, Yottabyte can help businesses in a number of ways,” said Tursi. “Our new website should prove itself as a tremendous asset for administrators looking to better understand how Yottabyte can assist them with their data storage and affect their bottom line.”

The year 2012 was not characterized by any revolution in technology in the storage industry. Instead, it was a year in which the market caught up to the technological changes that have been brewing for a couple years.

It was a year in which public storage clouds proved their mettle, flash storage technology and converged infrastructure moved from the periphery to the mainstream, the top enterprise vendors and top small business vendors met to duke it out in the middle and even the lowly disk drive and tape drive brought new surprises.

BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP — Data storage has gotten a lot cheaper in recent years.

And now, a Bloomfield Township company is hoping to lop another zero off the cost of storing your stuff.

Essentially, Yottabyte is using software to create virtual data centers, using cheaper so-called commodity hardware to replace more expensive software and systems from vendors like IBM, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, EMC and NetApp.

Yottabyte could be called a “consolidated, virtual data center in a box” – a scale-out box. Taking pages from the ‘books’ of several infrastructure companies, they’re providing a replacement for servers, storage, networking, virtualization software, backup and other specialty appliances that end up in the data center.

The startup’s key technology is a distributed file system that can virtualize heterogeneous storage resources; it has also built management tools to create virtual datacenter environments. Can Yottabyte make a dent in the crowded cloud space?

Yottabyte unveiled an enhanced version of its software for virtualizing commodity server, storage and networking hardware into a virtualized data center designed to help smaller companies build cloud data centers.

Michigan-based startup Yottabyte is coming out of stealth mode with a virtual datacenter solution for all manner of cloud platforms. Last week the company held a coming out party for Yottabyte Community Edition, a software framework that “incorporates storage, compute and network in a single virtual data center platform for building public, private and hybrid clouds.”

In other cloud news, Bloomfield, MI-based startup Yottabyte emerged from stealth to launch its cloud operating system that it said will enable companies to build virtual data centers from commodity server, storage, and networking gear and software.

Yottabyte’s software, which has been in beta for months, competes with Nimbula, which joined the OpenStack consortium at the recent OpenStack Summit.
