Coho DataStream 1000
Coho DataStream 1000 enables enterprises to build a cloud-inspired, scale-out storage system on open, modular hardware that delivers the pay-as-you-grow economics and flexibility of public cloud. The flash-tuned DataStream software architecture ensures bottleneck-free performance that scales linearly and adapts to any application, virtualized or physical.
Enterprise Storage is a Dinosaur
Despite fundamental shifts in workloads, interfaces, and technology, the major storage vendors continue to push the same thing they’ve been selling since Reagan was President: monolithic arrays.
Is Flash the Fix?
Flash has created lots interesting options for addressing performance issues, but whether all-flash or hybrid, these options do not challenge the architectural shortcomings that make enterprise storage so painful in the first place. Nearly all the options today slot SATA/SAS-attached flash into monolithic array architectures, resulting in limited scalability and rendering them valuable only as point solutions for top tier applications.
The Cloud Generation
Over the last decade, infrastructure teams at cloud generation companies like Amazon, Google and Facebook realized that achieving flexible scale and optimal economics for storage would require an overhaul of how storage had been done to date. They’ve pioneered the use of commodity hardware paired with distributed systems software to stitch these building blocks into flexible, resilient storage services that scale on-demand.
