DriveScale’s Software Composable Infrastructure Solution Wins Gold for Best New IT Software

DriveScale, the leader in delivering Software Composable Infrastructure (SCI) for modern workloads, today announced that it has been named a Gold winner of the Golden Bridge Awards® in the Best New Product or Service – Information Technology Software category. The Golden Bridge Awards honor the best in organizational performance, innovations, products and services, executives and management teams from every major industry across the world. This year’s judging panel recognized DriveScale for its innovative SCI technology and its approach to managing crucial requirements of modern workloads.

DriveScale’s composable infrastructure technology is designed to better manage compute and storage resources by disaggregating them into separate pools and then flexibly binding them together as needed under software control. The DriveScale System is the first solution on the market that empowers mainstream enterprises and web-based application providers to easily and instantly provision and modify data center infrastructure to match changing application loads. This solves common over- and under-provisioning issues that data center managers face, allowing them to improve utilization of resources and respond to end users’ needs in real-time — without negatively impacting performance.

“We are in the age of big data. With modern workloads becoming ever more critical to the business, we aren’t surprised that very few enterprises can implement an efficient and flexible scale-out distributed computing approach like Facebook and Google,” said Gene Banman, CEO at DriveScale. “The Golden Bridge Award recognition underscores our mission to enable mainstream enterprises to quickly and easily adopt a scale-out infrastructure and provide our customers with the flexibility of the public cloud, the performance of bare metal and the cost of commodity hardware. With the DriveScale System, we are helping IT do more with less.”

This accolade follows the release of additional encryption and support capabilities for the DriveScale System that directly address encryption needs for data at rest and in transit and provide support for data disposition and shredding, along with improved maintenance capabilities. These latest enhancements ensure that enterprises are able to keep customer, personal and other sensitive information protected and safe from unauthorized viewing — while still improving how IT administrators manage modern workloads throughout their organization’s infrastructure.
