Maxta's MxSP v2.0 was highly praised by Modern Infrastructure Impact Awards voters for its innovative approach to software-defined storage. Maxta's software-only option replaces a traditional storage area network by pooling storage on standard x86 servers.
"I chose this product as it is software-only and has all the features you expect from a hardware solution," said one reader.
What made Maxta stand out among other software-defined storage products was its ease of use and its support for multiple hypervisors.
