ScaleIO (EMC) added to SDS/HCI Matrix – explore it now!


The ScaleIO company as well as software defined storage (SDS) technology it devised, have been around longer than most others in the market today. ScaleIO for example released its first GA product to the market early 2011 whereas Nutanix did the same thing late that same year. ScaleIO’s technology didn’t go unnoticed within the industry for long either. The Israeli company was acquired by EMC halfway 2013 in order to strengthen the behemoths storage portfolio as it did not contain an SDS solution. The company’s acquisition did not halt the platform’s evolution however. Since then ScaleIO Elastic Converged Storage (ECS) has steadily progressed from version 1.1 to version 2.0 that was released in March 2016.

what distinguishes ScaleIO from the other SDS/HCI solutions out there …  the most notable is the tremendous flexibility the solution has shown since its emergence!

History aside, what in particular distinguishes ScaleIO from the other SDS/HCI solutions out there? Probably the most notable is the tremendous flexibility that the solution has shown since its emergence more than five years ago. In contrast to most other SDS/HCI platforms, ScaleIO was clearly engineered as a direct replacement for the existing hardware defined storage solutions. That meant it had to be able to serve both virtual server environments as well as bare metal (physical server) environments. As the aim of most competitive SDS/HCI solutions has been to exclusively target virtual environments, support for the latter is often missing.
