Amplidata and Avere Systems Partner

Amplidata NV in object-based software defined storage and Avere Systems, Inc., a provider of enterprise storage for cloud-enabled data centers, announced a partnership to deliver a scalable and efficient storage solution for cloud-enabled data centers.

The solution is suited for many industries including life sciences, oil and gas, media and entertainment, R&D and service providers.

The combined solution offers organizations cloud-scale economics with the security, performance and flexibility of their data center.

Changing workloads and the ever-increasing volume and value of data continue to challenge even the most efficient IT organizations. Traditional RAID-based architectures are no longer viable for today's big data scale due to increased risk of data loss when using multi-terabyte HDDs. To address these challenges, many organizations are embracing cloud-scale storage solutions that provide high levels of durability, scalability and efficiency at a lower price point.

With this partnership, Amplidata and Avere have redefined scalable storage by combining Amplidata's Amplistor with Avere FlashCloud on FXT Series Edge filers.

Organizations can have a cost effective solution that offers superior performance with scalable and durable storage in a single global namespace.

Avere demonstrated scalable NFS performance on Amplidata's object storage technology, using SPECsfs2008, the storage industry's most popular NAS benchmark. A three-node FXT 3800 cluster achieved 180,229 ops/s throughput and minimal latency of 0.95ms overall response time with an Amplistor system. The secure AmpliStor system could be deployed across three geographically dispersed sites.

AmpliStor ingests data at line speed and delivers 3GB/s of sustained aggregate throughput from a base configuration with three controllers. Performance scales linearly with additional controllers, as each controller can saturate a 10GbE connection to deliver an extra 1GB/s throughput.

The combined solution improves the TCO as performance and capacity can be scaled independently. AmpliStor's patented BitSpread and BitDynamics software runs on Intel-based commercial-off-the-shelf hardware and can scale to store exabytes. AmpliStor protects data with fifteen 9s durability. With GeoSpread, data is dynamically spread across multiple sites using 65% [1] less capacity than RAID-6 with replication and keeps data safe and accessible even if an entire site becomes unavailable.

Increasing capacity is as simple as adding a single storage node. Changing the configuration or durability levels after the system has been deployed requires only an online update to the policy. The system dynamically rebalances data across all nodes and sites without having to touch the data.
