iWave Storage Automator v6 Enables Service Providers to Deliver Storage as a Service

By allowing end users to provision their own storage via a service portal, iWave Storage Automator v6 lowers storage operating costs and supports more storage with fewer administrators, while enforcing best practices for storage provisioning.

iWave Software, a storage and cloud automation provider, is now offering iWave Storage Automator version 6 (v6), a storage automation software product that enables service providers to deliver Storage as a Service using their existing storage environments. By allowing end users to provision their own storage via a service portal, iWave Storage Automator v6 lowers storage operating costs and supports more storage with fewer administrators, while enforcing best practices for storage provisioning.

Storage Automator v6 will be available to qualified customers on July 23, 2012, with general availability planned for September 2012. This next-generation storage automation product incorporates concepts from the cloud automation world, creating an automated storage service offered directly to users via a self-service portal.

Service providers can deploy iWave Storage Automator v6 to end user customers over the Internet as a public storage cloud service.

Key features of iWave Storage Automator v6:

  • Policy-based storage selection provides a sophisticated rules engine that can automatically match an application or host-operating system’s storage requirement to the most appropriate storage resources.
  • Multi-tenant, self-service portal and catalog offer an intuitive user interface that lets end users quickly and easily order automated storage services. Service providers can leverage the portal to offer storage services to multiple customers over the Internet.
  • End-to-end automated storage services offer automated storage provisioning, reclamation and remediation services. Provisioning services include automatically selecting the best possible storage, provisioning the storage, manipulating the storage fabric and configuring the host operating system or application to use the storage.
  • RESTful storage API – iWave automated storage services can be used through iWave’s storage API. Service providers can easily integrate iWave Storage Automator v6 into their existing portal or enterprise orchestration tool using the storage API.
  • Change control, scheduling and notification allows organizations to leverage their existing change management system. All automated services can be scheduled to run during maintenance windows and provide email notification when they have completed.
  • Service level options allow enterprise IT departments and service providers to offer “Gold,” “Silver,” and “Bronze” storage services that are driven by the tier of storage and data protection policies applied.
  • Chargeback offers chargeback information for storage provisioned using iWave Storage Automator v6 and can be fed into a service provider’s billing system.
