NandGate is an ambitious hardware platform for delivering fast, high-bandwidth data in a cheap and open way.
It was originally pitched by Microsoft at its recent Build conference in New York City.
But now the hardware startup is looking to build a broader ecosystem, partnering with Google to build the cloud computing platform that would enable Nand Gate to scale with both enterprise and consumer applications.
“Our aim is to provide a scalable solution to the storage, computing, and analytics challenges that are driving the growth of the Internet of Things, and we’re taking a bold approach with Nand Gateway,” said John Lee, chief operating officer of Nandgate.
“NandGate offers a scalable storage solution, with the ability to scale to tens of terabytes, and it has a lot of power over the cloud.
Our goal is to take Nand as a foundational cloud platform that will be an industry leader in the future.”
Nand Gates has partnered with Google Cloud to build Cloud Nand, a cloud-native Nand gateway platform.
Nand has been around since 2013, and is now a fully-fledged software platform.
Cloud Nan is an open-source hardware platform that leverages Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and IBM OpenStack to build Nand.
Microsoft Azure is a cloud platform provider that can be used to build custom cloud-based infrastructure on a variety of hardware platforms.
Cloud Nan has a dedicated developer community and is open source.
NanGate’s goal is “to offer a scalable cloud platform with high availability, scalability, and low latency,” Lee said.
CloudNan is currently in beta and the company plans to launch in Q4 2019.
The Nand platform will be available to developers through a new cloud service, Nand Cloud.
Nanda is a hardware and software company that works with cloud services to build and distribute custom hardware and cloud software, such as cloud computing and data centers.
Nands main competitors include Cisco’s OpenShift and HPE’s Azure Cloud.
Microsoft’s CloudNano is currently available for developers.
Nandi is a software platform that uses Microsoft Azure and other cloud services and is also open source, according to Lee.
Nanding is currently on sale for $499.99.
Cloud-native computing Nand is based on a cloud based solution, but it is open-sourced and can be ported to other cloud platforms.
Lee said Nand will offer a “single, unified and scalable solution” for storage, processing, analytics, and compute.
“We are taking this approach to enable enterprises to run their own cloud infrastructure and use Nand on that infrastructure to build on top of that cloud platform,” he said.
The company’s initial plan is to make Nand available to both the enterprise and the consumer markets.
“This means that the cloud is accessible to all enterprises and the end user is free to access the cloud with just one click,” Lee added.
Microsoft also has a presence at Nand’s event, where it showed off the company’s Azure cloud-driven Nand cloud solution and its Nand SDK.
“The enterprise platform is the new cloud and we want to bring that to all the platforms we build,” said Lee.
“If you can build it for enterprise, we’ll build it on top.
We will support that and provide tools and solutions for you to help you build your own cloud.”
Nanding will be supported on the Microsoft Azure platform in Q1 2020, Lee said, adding that the company is “looking at a number of options” to extend the Nand ecosystem.
“As a cloud provider, we are committed to offering a secure, scalable, and easy to use experience to all our customers,” Lee explained.
“Microsoft Azure provides a solid foundation for our enterprise customers to build their own infrastructure in the cloud.”
In a statement, Nandi said that “Microsoft Cloud NAND is the foundation for cloud computing.
It is a high performance and high availability solution with a simple interface that allows you to scale across all your clouds.”
The Nands cloud platform will support “customized hardware and the ability for enterprise customers with limited resources to build, deploy, and scale their own custom applications.”
Microsoft is also looking to bring Nand to more enterprise customers.
“There is a need for a secure platform for all data that needs to move across the enterprise to be securely stored, processed, and delivered,” Microsoft said.
“Windows 10 is a powerful cloud platform and we are exploring the possibility of bringing Nand with Windows 10 to customers who need it.
Our next steps will be to expand Nand into more cloud services for enterprises and to explore ways to support the next generation of enterprise cloud computing.”
Nands platform is available on the Windows Azure platform.
Google has also announced it is developing its own cloud computing solution, called Cloud Nano, which is open sourced and will be made available to customers on a free-of-charge basis.
Microsoft will also be building a
