ServiSMART Chooses Seanodes for Cloud Computing Storage Backbone
Chooses Seanodes Shared Internal Storage Technology As the Virtualized Storage Platform for Its Cloud Computing Infrastructure

Seanodes announced that ServiSMART has selected Seanodes Shared Internal Storage technology as the virtualized storage platform for its new cloud computing infrastructure.

ServiSMART is an emerging hosted services provider currently in stealth mode founded and managed by a team of experienced executives who formerly worked for some of the largest ISPs in Europe. ServiSMART is creating a fully virtualized Hosted Services/Cloud Computing and ERP Hosted Applications platform for the European market using an off-the-shelf open source Xen solution combined with its ServiSMART Infrastructure. For the storage component of its cloud computing platform ServiSMART has chosen to use the latest product from Seanodes, Exanodes VM Edition.

ServiSMART made the decision to go with Seanodes based on the cost, performance and the simplicity of deploying Exanodes VM Edition into a virtualized environment, according to Frederico Marques, CTO of ServiSMART. “After evaluating the Exanodes product we clearly thought that it was the ultimate solution and the only one to build a real storage cloud for our hosted services platform,” said Marques. “In terms of performance and simplicity, this solution is a perfect fit for our Hosted Services/Cloud Computing-Storage platform. And with Exanodes VM Edition we can get the benefits of high-end networked storage for half the cost of an entry-level SATA box.”

Marques also acknowledged the unmatched value proposition of the Exanodes platform, enabling ServiSMART to offer a premium service at a commodity price. “Most hosted services platforms offer a long-term/persistent storage platform, but for storage requirements when the application is running they only offer low performance, unreliable, non-networked storage for one simple reason: using traditional storage solutions, this kind of ‘premium’ service would be billed at a high price,” said Marques. “Exanodes will enable us to offer high-level storage services in terms of performance, reliability and the ability for the platform user to migrate a virtual machine from one server to another. All this for a very competitive price thanks to Seanodes’ innovative Shared Internal Storage concept.”

“The ServiSMART cloud storage platform is a perfect test bed to showcase the performance, scalability and enterprise-class availability of Exanodes VM Edition,” said Frank Gana, Business Development Director at Seanodes. “Exanodes VM Edition is a breakthrough technology that smashes the limitations of traditional approaches to enterprise storage and enables the creation of a fully virtualized infrastructure by simplifying the linkage of virtual server and storage environments.”
