Today Cray introduced a complete and open storage archiving solution for Big Data and supercomputing with the launch of Cray Tiered Adaptive Storage (TAS). Through a strategic partnership with Versity Software, Cray has developed a deployment-ready, flexible tiered archiving solution designed to be easy to use, reduce costs, and preserve data indefinitely.
Our new data management product gives supercomputing and Big Data customers the ability to more effectively access, manage, and preserve their exponentially increasing amounts of data,” said Barry Bolding, Cray’s vice president of storage and data management. “Today, Cray is at the forefront of scalable, parallel file system storage. With the launch of Cray TAS, we now have a complete tiered storage and archiving solution that combines our scaling expertise with proven block storage and tape technologies, while also providing integration with HSM features in future versions of the Lustre file system. To make Cray TAS even more compelling, we have integrated Versity’s open-format virtualization technologies that manage and optimize customer data across multiple storage tiers to provide best-in-class hierarchical storage management.”
Cray also offers a storage appliance solution using Cray® Sonexion® — a scale out storage system that vastly reduces deployment time and simplifies storage management for high performance solutions. Cray Sonexion addresses a broad range of customers as it provides performance scalability from gigabytes to terabytes per-second in a single file system and performs optimally at scale. Cray is also an original founder and board member of OpenSFS — a consortium focused on advancing Lustre capabilities and keeping Lustre open — and is following the OpenSFS roadmap for Lustre.
