Maxta, Inc. Key Developments

Trusource Labs LLC Select Maxta® MxSP® Software

Maxta Inc. announced that Trusource Labs LLC has selected Maxta® MxSP® software to deliver the scalability, flexibility and cost-of-ownership benefits required to keep pace with its rapidly expanding business. Maxta software-centric HCI solutions offer unparalleled freedom of choice in servers, storage and virtualization platforms, eliminating expensive vendor lock-in and creating much greater flexibility than proprietary HCI appliances. MxSP-enabled clusters support any standard x86-based server configuration. Clusters may be scaled up or scaled out in increments as small as a single storage device or server at a time. Compute-only nodes may also be added to scale computing power independently of storage capacity, eliminating the typical over-provisioning of resources when scaling proprietary appliances.

Princeton Pharmatech Deploys Maxta Hyperconvergence Solution to Boost IT Performance, Cut Cost and Reduce Complexity

Maxta Inc. announced that Princeton Pharmatech LLC has implemented an MxSP® software solution as part of an IT refresh designed to overcome storage and network performance issues associated with its legacy three-tier infrastructure that had hindered the company's commitment to deliver projects on time, every time. Maxta MxSP software helps organizations of any size transform complex and costly virtualized infrastructure into a more agile, efficient configuration by converging traditionally separate compute and storage tiers to create a hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI). The result is dramatically simpler management and significant cost savings by eliminating the need for expensive and complicated storage area networks and storage arrays.
