DriveScale, Inc., in delivering software-defined infrastructure (SDI) for modern workloads, announced a partnership with World Wide Technology, Inc. (WWT), a technology solution provider, to market and sell its SDI solution for managing the dynamic compute and storage needs of their customers' business.

DriveScale supports modern workloads such as Hadoop, Spark, Kafka, Cassandra and NoSQL of any size, at any scale, for a fraction of the cost.

The two companies share a common vision of transforming customers' IT infrastructures to better support their business initiatives and deliver on the promise of simplicity, agility, automation and cost efficiencies in modern cloud computing. As a result of its technological innovations in SDI, WWT has chosen to add DriveScale to its select list of IT partners. Through this strategic partnership, WWT will include DriveScale's solution in its testing and implementation lineup. This partnership helps DriveScale expand its reach and provide WWT customers with scale-out solutions for the data center.

"Hadoop solutions are becoming more pervasive in data processing workflows," said Brian Vaughan, big data practice lead and principal consultant, WWT. "As enterprise customers mature in their Hadoop operations, IT organizations are looking for solutions that enable them to add compute and storage resources separately. Many of our customers have requirements to drive down cost, and increase business value. To meet these requirements, organizations have adopted processes that require platforms to be elastic and highly productive. DriveScale’s software-defined infrastructure enables our customer to do this.

"DriveScale is excited to partner with WWT, one of the largest and most respected technology solution providers," said Gene Banman, CEO, DriveScale. "WWT understands the needs of big data operators and will do a fantastic job of integrating our software-defined infrastructure solution into their environment."
