Coho Data Supports New VMware Features with Latest Release Delivering the Highest IOPS-per-Dollar in the Industry

  • Updated FlashFit Feature Automatically Analyzes & Projects Each Application’s Flash Needs
  • New Elastic Subscription Program Shifts Private Cloud Storage Costs from Upfront Capital Expenditures to Low Monthly Costs

PALO ALTO, Calif.--()--Coho Data, a leading innovator in web-scale flash storage for the enterprise, today announced its latest release of the DataStream v2.5 software. This update brings performance improvements to the entire platform, enabling customers to utilize all of the latest offerings from VMware while achieving the highest IOPS-per-dollar for their flash investment. Coho Data is also introducing its new Elastic Subscription Program that redefines how enterprises purchase and deploy their private cloud storage.

“Enterprises are looking for ways to buy what they need so they can deliver key data services to their organization while keeping their data on-premises,” said Ramana Jonnala, Coho Data CEO and co-founder. “With the new Elastic Subscription Program, Coho is disrupting the status quo and allowing enterprises to deliver scale-out storage on premises at a low monthly cost. Now enterprises can procure and deploy storage hardware just-in-time and benefit from the commoditization of flash technologies with an architecture that enables them to pay as they go.”

DataStream v2.5 Architecture Updates

Flash Optimization with FlashFit
The DataStream FlashFit technology allows storage admins to deliver the right amount of flash for each application by learning about a customer’s unique application environment and auto-tuning flash utilization. The DataStream automatically optimizes the placement of application data across the DataStream system, providing IT teams with a model on the right mix of flash and disk to meet their specific application’s needs.

Doubled Density in Hybrid Array
With the option of new 8TB drives, the hybrid Coho DataStream 1008h can deliver double the density, increasing total capacity from 25TB/U to 50TB/U while maintaining consistent performance of 90,000 IOPS/U. With these improvements, companies can increase capacity while still maintaining the predictable high performance delivered across the DataStream system.

Support for VMware vSphere 6
Support for the latest VMware vSphere version means Coho Data customers can now rely on a single storage system to support all their VMware needs. It also allows customers to leverage Coho Data solutions to virtualize a broader range of applications and take advantage of the latest features from VMware, such as new migration capabilities.

Multi-vCenter Support
Customers can now support multiple vCenter installations and connect all their vCenters across multiple versions of VMware software into the Coho DataStream.

Elastic Subscription Pricing

In addition to its product updates, Coho Data unveiled a new Elastic Subscription Program that is a first for private cloud environments. The model will allow customers to conserve capital and pay for their solutions monthly rather than incurring a large upfront capital expenditure. As customers experience growth within their private cloud datacenters, rather than incur large, unexpected storage costs with traditional architectures, they can simply adjust their subscription to easily add the additional performance or capacity they require and benefit from the hardware best prices available.
