Datera enables commodity servers from many different vendors, to form software defined storage clusters, which deliver Tier 1 block (iSCSI) and Object Storage. The Datera platform enables bare metal, VM and container workloads to operate concurrently, within a single cluster. The clusters can scale to 64 nodes and may be comprised of a heterogeneous mix of Persistent Storage Class media, such as Intel Optane or Samsung’s Z-SSD, as well as NVMe, SAS and STA Flash. The platform supports rotational media as well, in hybrid nodes.
