Slidecast: Seagate’s New Nytro Flash Products

kent

“These new flash products greatly expand the range of our total product portfolio and demonstrate how Seagate’s acquisition of the LSI flash technologies is paying off. The Nytro XF1440/XM1440 SSDs deliver the highest performance in the smallest power envelope. The XP6500 flash accelerator card provides ultra-low latency capability for applications that require fast logging and produce significantly higher transactions per second,–something today’s applications demand.”

Slidecast: IBM Platform Data Manager for LSF

LSF

“IBM Platform Data Manager for LSF takes control of data transfers to help organizations improve data throughput and lower costs by minimizing wasted compute cycles and conserving disk space. Platform Data Manager automates the transfer of data used by application workloads running on IBM Platform LSF clusters and the cloud, bringing frequently used data closer to compute resources by storing it in a smart, managed cache that can be shared among users and workloads.”

Panasas Moves Forward with ActiveStor 18 Hybrid Scale-out NAS Appliance

Geoffrey Noer, Panasas

“By adopting 8 terabyte drive technology, ActiveStor 18 increases scalability to more than 20 petabytes and 200 gigabytes per second. According to Panasas, ActiveStor 18 also offers increased CPU power and twice the storage cache capacity to further accelerate mixed workload performance. ActiveStor offers a true scale-out architecture incorporating hybrid storage hardware, file system and protocols in a fully integrated solution. Its architecture combines high-capacity hard drives and fast flash devices for superior mixed-workload performance with rapid access to small and large files alike.”
