This IDC Perspective, targeted at more technical audiences, explains VAST Data's unique offering in detail. It also summarizes the end-user benefits the Universal Storage platform offers.VAST Data, a New York City-based storage start-up, initially began shipping product for revenue in February 2019 and by April 2020 had completed a third round of venture capital funding that gave the vendor a $1.2 billion valuation. Leveraging a unique new architecture built around NVMe over Fabrics, storage-class memory, and quad-level cell flash media, VAST Data's Universal Storage platform provides an all solid state storage platform for unstructured (file and/or object based) storage at the cost-per-gigabyte price point of nearline SAS hard disk drives."In architecting its Universal Storage platform, VAST Data has leveraged key new storage technologies like NVMe over Fabrics, storage-class memory, and quad-level cell media in truly innovative ways to create a system that can simultaneously deliver low latencies, high throughput, and massive scalability at the cost of disk," said Eric Burgener, research vice president, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms, and Technologies at IDC. "The compelling value this delivers to customers to cost effectively consolidate very different workloads on a single, highly available platform is undeniable. This is the storage architecture of the future."
