LizardFS and DIAWAY Announce Partnership To Market a Joint Storage Solution That Lowers Total Cost of Ownership
Tallinn, Estonia – April 16, 2020 – DIAWAY, the big-data storage, and networking integrator, and LizardFS, the Software-Defined Storage provider, today announced a new strategic partnership to integrate essential DIAWAY hardware and equipment solutions for endpoint and container workloads within LizardFS. Under this new partnership, DIAWAY tightly integrates its hardware and networking solutions for LizardFS software-defined storage.
Today many customers face unprecedented exponential data growth. Ensuring cost-efficiency and uptime for the growing data is critical.
With this new joint solution, customers can deploy DIAWAY's complete offering for various use cases with LizardFS software-defined storage. DIAWAY's Techonomics™ approach uses advanced hardware and financial analytics to help optimize, maintain, and scale workloads deployed on LizardFS.
LizardFS makes it possible to build storage solutions on multiple servers, scaling vertically and horizontally by a single drive or a single node. It allows customers to have up to exabytes of data. This type of solution ensures readiness for an exponential increase in storage while using the DIAWAY storage solution. Organizations can also leverage DIAWAY-powered LizardFS File Storage Solution for Elasticsearch Storage, Genome Research, Geological and Geophysical data, and General-Purpose File Storage. Using LizardFS for Docker volumes is one of the leading container usage cases. In environments with many docker instances, the DevOps teams are struggling with efficient and consistent backups. Usually, such consistent backups require a stop (put down) docker image for all the time needed by backup software to synchronize data between current status and backup. With LizardFS, no stop operation is needed, providing a non-interruptible workflow.
DIAWAY helps LizardFS customers optimize their infrastructure CapEx and OpEx by advising them on selecting the best hardware for the task and supplying it as a complete solution. Thus, significantly decreasing overall data storage costs and removing the complexity of designing, building, supplying, and supporting the storage infrastructure.
"Demand for different storage solutions, optimal for specific tasks, is on the rise and strong," said Aleksandr Ragel, managing partner, and co-founder at DIAWAY. "A justifiable portion of this demand may leverage LizardFS capabilities, and we are proud to integrate our signature storage hardware and design in LizardFS software-defined storage infrastructure. This partnership ensures that LizardFS customers can benefit from proven cost-efficiency, reliability, and performance."
"We're excited to partner with DIAWAY to bring their proven, trusted multi-petabyte capabilities in building storage infrastructures to our customers," said Piotr Modrzyk, Product Development Lead at LizardFS. "Integrating DIAWAY's solutions with LizardFS means customers now have even more tools to ensure the highest levels of performance and resilience as they evolve with existing installations or start anew."
LizardFS Software Defined Storage is a free open-source distributed, parallel, scalable, fault-tolerant, Geo-Redundant, and highly available file system. It allows users to combine disk space located on several servers into a single name space, which is visible on Unix-like and Windows systems in the same way as other file systems. LizardFS makes files secure by keeping all the data in multiple replicas with erasure coding, spread over the available servers. It can also be used to build space-efficient storage because it is designed to run on commodity hardware. For more information, please visit: https://lizardfs.com
