Storage for Generation Scale-Out

Big Data and now machine learning have brought traditional HPC (high performance computing) to the enterprise and developers and data scientists have embraced Google-style scale-out with sharded NoSQL databases and Microservices. Storage, however, has not kept up and is stuck with 25-year old protocols and a hardware centric approach. Often, storage is now seen as an inhibitor of progress and projects – it’s the last dinosaur in the data center. Quobyte brings a 100% software-only approach to storage with unlimited scale-out, helping IT organizations and users to match the storage requirements of their new scale-out workloads.
