Aderas Teams with Madison Cloud & StorONE to Present Data Agility with Private MultiCloud Storage at the Defense Health IT Symposium

Aderas has teamed with Madison Cloud to develop an innovative IT Platform as a Service for Government and Commercial customers. The platform leverages Private MultiCloud Storage from Madison Cloud powered by StorONE SDS and direct connections to Cloud providers at Equinix data centers. The solution will be demonstrated live in the Aderas booth #401 at the Defense Health IT Symposium from July 30th through August 1st. DHITS is located in the Caribe Royale All Suite Hotel and Convention Center at 8101 World Center Dr., Orlando, Florida.

VMs and containers provide application agility, yet data agility and storage are challenging elements in most IT Production & DevOps environments. Sub setting a database may save space but could also introduce more problems such as version control and performance issues. Sev 1 problems can disrupt the DevOps timeline, and there may not be sufficient funding or system capacity to start more instances. Aderas PaaS with PMCS delivers data agility coupled with Cloud or on-premise compute services.

The Madison Cloud PMCS platform is located at Equinix data centers which provide direct high-speed low latency connections to almost all Cloud service providers and telecommunication carrier networks. This system design allows PMCS to be fully private with end to end security. StorONE SDS capabilities enable DevOps teams to take instant snapshots of Production and rapidly create thin clones that can be mounted to a wide range of Cloud provider IT services.

When a snapshot on PMCS is restored, multiple volumes can be created from the same snapshot without consuming additional storage capacity. The snapshot only saves metadata which points to where data resides on disk, requiring very little drive space. Multiple thin clone volume restore points can be created from the same snapshot. This capability allows separate instances of the same file share to be presented to multiple separate compute resources. Multiple DevOps sprints can now proceed, all with different timelines and only changes to the Gold volume consume additional storage space.

It's now time to do a Day Zero Oracle database backup. A snapshot of Production is taken in minutes and a Gold thin clone volume is created. RMAN is pointed to the cloned Gold volume and runs offline without impacting Production performance. PMCS also enables Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) to run on AWS, Azure and Google Cloud. The data set is stored on a PMCS NFS volume and database instances mount to it natively. Apps and middleware can access the data set in the NFS volume simultaneously from almost any Cloud provider or compute resource. Architects and DevOps teams can now use compute instances from multiple Cloud Providers, on premise servers or any other device on the WAN/LAN to connect to the same data set. The fully managed Aderas PaaS with PMCS can also support workloads with primary block, file and object at on premise data centers.

The days of data agility limitations & Cloud lock-in are becoming a thing of the past.

Jimmy Nguyen, CEO of Aderas, said: "The Aderas IT Delivery PaaS accelerates DevOps, Cloud Migration and other IT workflows. Madison Cloud and StorONE provide us with data agility that opens up new possibilities on premise and in the MultiCloud world."

Randall Van Allen, CEO of Madison Cloud, said: "It's exciting to see the innovative ways that Aderas is using our PMCS platform to solve a range of IT challenges. We look forward to working with Aderas to find new ways to support their customers."
