Attala Systems Announces Its High Performance Composable Storage Infrastructure Technology for Cloud and Analytics

Attala Systems today announced the demonstration of their new high performance storage technology at the 2017 Flash Memory Summit, August 8-10 2017 in Santa Clara, California. Attala’s revolutionary architecture is designed from the ground up for use in cloud environments such as those operated by cloud service providers (CSPs), e-commerce sites, managed service providers (MSPs), telco providers, financial services, and real-time digital enterprises, and provides significant advantages over enterprise-focused all-flash arrays (AFAs) and software-defined storage (SDS) platforms. The company, which has been in stealth mode until now, possesses a management and advisory team of seasoned executives from across the storage networking and server industry.

“As flash proliferates as the de facto storage media for cloud infrastructure, adapting existing storage architectures to the cloud can be counterproductive,” said Mike Heumann, Managing Partner, G2M Research. “Conventional AFAs and SDS appliances architectures can bring significant performance inefficiencies and costs to cloud environments. Attala Systems’ combination of an FPGA-based solution and self-learning orchestration and provisioning capabilities, has the potential to remove many of the inefficiencies of conventional storage architectures.”

Operators of cloud-based storage and real-time analytic systems are always seeking new ways to scale their infrastructure to support more clients, transactions or revenue-generating services, while providing superior performance, agility and reduced operational costs. A flexible data networking infrastructure, combined with automated provisioning and orchestration, significantly reduces TCO and operational costs. Attala Systems end-to-end solution utilizes FPGA-based hardware to accomplish these goals, and is purpose-built for cloud storage infrastructure. By being an end-to-end system, it also avoids the “DIY” performance and deployment risks associated with 3rd party/open-source software based solutions. The result is an adaptable storage infrastructure that is essentially an elastic block storage (EBS) solution “on steroids”.

“We are excited to be working with Attala Systems,” said Dan McNamara, Corporate VP of the Programmable Solutions Group at Intel. “Intel FPGAs are enabling…
