The data center infrastructure is evolving rapidly to meet the needs of increasingly complex modern businesses. The competitive advantage depends on an agile, reliable and scalable operation without sacrificing performance, efficiency, security and user friendliness. With SoftIron HyperDrive, Exxact can design and build application-based solutions from the ground up to ensure that each component works seamlessly and optimally with everything else in a wire speed chain.

There’s no better way to unleash the power and utility of Ceph than HyperDrive
SoftIron’s flagship enterprise storage solution HyperDrive is specifically designed to optimize the performance of Ceph – the leading open source SDS platform known for its longevity, robustness and unlimited scalability. Supporting block, file and object storage, Ceph is the ultimate storage solution for companies looking to future-proof their data center infrastructure. In addition, HyperDrive enables simple, straightforward cluster management, so companies don’t need an in-house Ceph expert to get great results. This means that any organization of any size can benefit from Ceph and is able to adapt and expand its solution as needed.

“Exxact is proud to be a SoftIron Accredited Partner authorized to offer and support fully integrated data center solutions to our customers,” said Andrew Nelson, VP of Technology at Exxact Corporation “By partnering with SoftIron, we are able to offer superior, scalable, task-specific appliances that are undeniably easy to use with an intuitive management interface, and provide effortless usability and streamlined operations.”
