Software Defined Storage, Hyper-Converged Infrastructure
Over the past few years, the enterprise storage sector has evolved at an unprecedented pace as innovative technologies and architectures continued to transform data storage into data management. The explosion in data, data-based decision-making and the shift to infrastructure as a service (IaaS) are the underpinnings for modern software-defined infrastructure (SDI) and software-defined storage (SDS). Enterprises that fail to keep up with these innovations are at risk of lagging behind in the race.
Altran Enterprise Storage services has a complete range of storages from cache to cloud. Our solutions include software-defined storage, flash storage device engineering and data management of modern datacenters. We are currently developing innovative solutions for accelerated storage, NVM Express (NVMe) management and open-source-based storage.
Altran SDS capabilities include:
- Storage interfaces and related protocols – direct attached, network attached and cloud
- Storage persistence modes – block/volume, file systems and object storage
- Storage management – SMI-S, enclosure services, NVMe management interface and orchestration for OpenStack
- Integration and certification – reference architecture design, interoperability and certification
Altran helps customers chart a new course that will lead them to hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) solutions and innovative enterprise-storage solutions. We bring deep expertise and experience in NVMe storage technology, storage IO acceleration, secondary storage management and open-source software-defined storage solutions.
We provide product engineering services and frameworks for software-defined storage, flash storage and primary storage, with deep insight to data management and secondary storage.
