Cloud computing implementations are all about the ability to scale and automate. Your OpenStack storage must scale, too. SolidFire storage systems leverage a true scale-out architecture that delivers linear scalability of both capacity and performance, allowing you to easily add resources as needs dictate, non-disruptively and without stopping Cinder services. Eliminate multi-year capacity planning and performance projections, and scale on demand. SolidFire’s complete set of APIs and deep OpenStack Cinder integration enable increased automation and end user self-service. Eliminate error-prone manual tasks, troublesome scripting hacks, and build an unrivaled foundation for scaled automation and full orchestration.
