Datera Unveils Integration with OpenStack FUEL to Simplify Private Cloud Deployments

Datera, the application-driven cloud data infrastructure company, today announced a new integration with OpenStack FUEL that enables companies to deploy applications to OpenStack quickly and with flexibility. Datera’s Elastic Data Fabric automatically adapts to an application’s storage needs and efficiently scales applications so enterprises can roll out web-scale private cloud deployments instantly. Datera worked with Mirantis, a leading provider of distribution and cloud management service for OpenStack, to validate the integration. Using FUEL as a control plane, application operators can optimize Datera’s Elastic Data Fabric to scale horizontally across Mirantis OpenStack, reducing or eliminating the need for manual integration, configuration and patching. Datera’s new integration with FUEL supports a wide range of applications with a price-performance fit, so any company can create a cloud that adapts to its application’s needs.

OpenStack is a rich resource of cloud computing software that enables businesses to manage large amounts of information at minimal price. Application makers need to utilize those benefits to remain competitive, but often find it difficult to scale their applications without crashes. With this integration, FUEL makes application deployment simple for businesses, while Datera’s self-adapting infrastructure scales applications universally across nodes so information is stored efficiently according to need and affordably.

“Datera’s Elastic Data Fabric is a powerful multi-tenant solution for companies and developers looking to improve their storage flexibility and reduce IT spend,” said Paul Roberts, director of system engineering at Mirantis. “With this integration, businesses who rely on Mirantis for successful OpenStack deployment can get system-wide web-scale support without informational siloes. We’re thrilled to offer our customers those benefits in addition to the seamless OpenStack deployment our services support.”

“Mirantis is the go-to resource for developers deploying to OpenStack infrastructure,” said Datera’s Head of Product Management Ashok Rajagopalan. “Elastic Data Fabric supports that mission by ensuring high quality-of-service, preventing crashes and provisioning storage needs as applications grow. The new integration will save developers time and resources and ensure stable growth for applications using OpenStack.”

“Datera is committed to the open source effort and driving multiple initiatives including the next generation storage solution,” added Gurpreet Singh, president and chief product officer of Datera. “Open source technology breeds innovation, and resources like OpenStack drive businesses forward. By automating storage distribution, Elastic Data Fabric used with Mirantis takes the work out of deploying applications to OpenStack.”
