We believe NovaStor being part of the ECA will help ease the transition for customers when moving part of their infrastructure into a software-defined data center.
Agoura Hills, CA (PRWEB) January 30, 2015
NovaStor, an international provider of award-winning data protection solutions, recently announced its charter membership of the Elastic Computing Alliance (ECA), an ecosystem of organizations focused on delivering innovative data center products, services and technologies. The company is also serving on the ECA Advisory Council.
“The transformation to data centers that are software-defined is already under way, but complexity has been a key inhibitor,” said Rocky Bullock, CEO of NIMBOXX, which established the Elastic Computing Alliance. “Customers expect and deserve integrated technologies and the onus is on vendors to make this happen. The goal of the ECA is to reduce complexity, remove existing barriers and make software-defined data centers accessible to businesses of all sizes.”
NovaStor joined the ECA to work with like-minded innovators to create and grow data center technologies in order to deliver greater value and functionality to the user. A key factor of developing a forward looking and user-oriented data protection solution is to bring the benefits of the datacenter to businesses of all sizes through the use of powerful yet simple software technologies, and further protect their critical business data.
“We believe NovaStor being part of the ECA will help ease the transition for some customers when looking into moving at least part of their infrastructure into a software-defined data center.” explains NovaStor’s Managing Director Mike Andrews. ”The NovaBACKUP DataCenter product allows them to utilize and protect their new and current infrastructure with a single pane of glass for data protection.”
Hyper-converged infrastructures are one of the top data centers trends for 2015. Having a combined compute, storage and networking solution minimizes the effort while upgrading or deploying new technologies. Appliances based on the idea of centralizing the management of IT infrastructure will allow simplification of everyday maintenance and reduce overall cost. Companies with limited IT budgets will especially benefit from this trend. NovaStor intends to further enhance the advantages of hyper converged infrastructures by partnering with companies that are producing innovative solutions like NIMBOXX, where NovaBACKUP DataCenter is a perfect fit.
