Startup Translattice, a self-described "predictive data and distributed application company that provides information when and where it is needed, has entered the market with its sights set on changing the way enterprises provision distributed applications and data, sister site InfoStor reports.
Translattice launched today with the goal of changing the way enterprises provision distributed applications and data. However, the company does not expect to ship product the Translattice Application Platform (TAP) -- until "early 2011," according to Translattice CEO and co-founder Frank Huerta.[The technology] anticipates application and data needs based on policy, usage and geography," and distributes data and applications through a predictive data engine that moves data to where its needed by users.
The approach represents an alternative to centralized, monolithic databases, and distributes data and applications across geographically dispersed nodes that include processing engines, Ethernet cards and storage. Each TAP node has about 16TB of capacity, and Huerta says that this approach can eliminate the need for complex SANs.
