Avere Introduces FXT Virtual Edge Filer for Amazon EC2

tabor

With the Avere FXT Edge Filer, uou basically get the same hardware operating EC2 cloud as you get from our physical appliances. Then you are on our software and what our software does is, it has the intelligence to automatically cache the active data up in the cloud. It pulls this data either from the Amazon S3 storage cloud or from your data center, from your NAS or object systems that are in your data center, and the goal there is to hide the latency to the storage.

“The ICE X is in production now. It is a compute-focused platform. At this show, we’re introducing the ICE XA. It adds several degrees of flexibility. With the ICE XA, we’ll still maintain the compute-only-density that we have in our ICE. But we have another blade available for that, which will enable accelerators, both GPU and Xeon Phi cards. We have an even third blade, will allow people to add hard drives and other IO devices. So, the flexibility of the ICE XA is what we’re talking about today at the show.”
