Software-defined, NVMe Complete Data Platform for any cloud, Lightbits Labs, says it has concluded 2021 with a doubled install base, increased average transaction size, and increased revenue as a result of IT firms turning to the company’s cloud solutions for “simplicity, agility, and cost-efficiency.”
An innovative full data storage platform would be the foundation of Lightbit’s success. Lightbits is software-defined and designed to use NVMe/TCP with Intelligent Flash Management. The unique combination would simplify consumption on commodity hardware and standard networking while significantly increasing flash efficiency. It would also give the greatest performance with the lowest latencies at scale for bare metal, containerized, or virtual environments.
After successfully passing a rigorous certification with VMware vSphere 7 Update 3, Lightbits introduced its software-defined NVMe/TCP storage solution for VMware last year. The VMware Compatibility Guide also included it. Other product developments were acknowledged with patent grants, increasing the total number of patents held by Lightbits Labs to 26 in 2021.
End-to-End NVMe Solution
“We have been fortunate to be in a position where cloud solutions have been in greater demand during the past few years allowing us to experience strong customer growth and increase in sales opportunities for the coming year,” said Eran Kirzner, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at Lightbits Labs. “We attribute the growth to our unique capabilities in terms of delivering a highly performant, cost-efficient data platform with enterprise rich data services in a shared storage environment that is easy to consume. More companies are adopting NVMe/TCP, and we invented it, it’s native to our storage software and our announcement last year with VMware is evidence that we are on a trajectory towards delivering an end-to-end NVMe solution.”
“We grew our topline and our company last year, added offices, added 27 percent more employees, and filled key leadership team positions, added Mr. Kirzner. “In 2022, watch for more product innovations with our strategic alliances which will add more customer value to our existing installation base and broaden our appeal. IT organizations need performance, simplicity, and efficiency for their cloud – whether it’s private, public, or at the edge – we deliver that and more.”
