New AI-ready virtualization solution is the industry's first
zero-layer, hardware- and vendor-agnostic hyperconverged fabric offering

HiveIO,
a company that transforms commodity data center equipment into a
software-defined virtualization solution, today announced version 7.0 of
Hive Fabric™, the industry's first zero-layer, hardware- and
vendor-agnostic solution that provides high-performing, scalable
technology to remove complexity from the data center. The artificial
intelligence (AI) ready hyperconverged fabric (HCF) solution delivers
next-generation data center management technology in a simple-to-deploy
and easy-to-operate platform.

Current IT architecture requires highly skilled specialists with a range
of certifications to manage the data center. Offering all the components
of a hyperconverged solution, Hive Fabric 7.0 satisfies the performance,
scale, and security that enterprises demand while eliminating confusing
licensing and multi-vendor integration and management that come with
traditional hyperconverged infrastructure.

"Data is a valuable commodity in any business today; however, it's
time-consuming and difficult to obtain while also expensive to gain
insights into your business," said Dan Newton, CEO of HiveIO. "Version
7.0 of Hive Fabric will enable organizations of any size to build and
scale their data center without additional cost or operational
complexity, while making it easier to collect, access, and manage their
data. With Hive Fabric, users can consolidate disparate meta-data into a
single stream enabling your IT team to gain valuable insight into their
business that leads to innovation and increases ROI."

The Hive Fabric solution allows IT professionals and CIOs to focus on
business objectives versus workloads by giving them an IT environment
that works with them rather than an overwhelming number of vendors and
features, benefits from economies of scale while keeping IT teams agile,
and problem solves in real-time with intelligence to drive tangible
business value.

"The HiveIO hyperconverged fabric solution helped us meet our growing
demands and enabled us to not only use our existing hardware but reduce
that requirement by 25 percent," said Bobbi Jo Kelly, IT Director at The
Epiphany School of Global Studies. "Our decision to move with Hive
Fabric also eliminated the need for multiple vendors and reduced our
total cost of ownership (TCO) by almost 50 percent. We are now ready for
the new school year challenges."

The 7.0 release brings additional functionality, improved flexibility,
and increased scalability though new features that include:

  • Virtual Server Support – Run multiple mixed-application
    workloads on a single infrastructure. With extended virtual server
    support, users can change the operational model in the data center.
  • Shared Storage – Augment the local and In-Memory storage
    capability of Hive Fabric, with hyperconverged scale-out storage. Hive
    Fabric automatically manages the creation, presentation, and ongoing
    management of the storage, which enables seamless expansion as
    additional storage resources are added to the cluster.
  • Resource Management – Simplifies the management of the platform
    through the Cluster Resource Scheduler (CRS) by intelligently moving
    Guest VMs between servers to ensure operational efficiency while
    sharing resources. CRS provides continuous, automated monitoring of
    resource utilization across the cluster and ensures a VM gets access
    to the resources it needs. CRS also helps to drive down costs in the
    data center by reducing the amount of hardware required to run
    workloads.

The foundation to Hive Fabric – the Message Bus – provides detailed
insights into the data center, removing the need for separate management
infrastructure, as it is highly extensive and rich with meta-data. This
AI-ready component is the key to unlocking an intelligent data center,
formatting and digesting data in real-time, so users can predict and
intervene before potential issues impact your IT environment.

"Hive Fabric is poised to break through the current boundaries of
traditional data centers and enter the world of artificial intelligence
and machine learning through its unique Message Bus architecture," said
Kevin McNamara, co-founder and CTO of HiveIO. "With less time spent
managing tickets and outages, IT professionals can leverage an AI engine
to provide proactive support, while also making time for the strategic
initiatives that lead to innovation and transformation in a digital-era."

Hive Fabric can deploy new compute, storage, and networking in just
seconds, while further buildouts can be adjusted through the inline
performance monitoring and intelligent scheduling. Like all Hive Fabric
solutions, version 7.0 can run on any x86 hardware, offering seamless
integration into an existing environment.

Version 7.0 of Hive Fabric is available now. For more information,
