“One of the challenges we face in enabling big data science is providing safe and affordable storage at petabyte scale,” said Dr. Marek Michalewicz, deputy director of ICM. “When the Avere and Western Digital team arrived, we were able to count time-to-completion in hours. Together, Avere and Western Digital let us take advantage of object storage efficiencies to support demand, delivering the capacity, performance and manageability that the OCEAN data center environment requires.”
“Avere Hybrid Cloud is a groundbreaking solution that changes the economics and functionality of data storage and computing. Avere Hybrid Cloud enables companies to leverage public and private storage clouds, IaaS, and elastic compute for workloads previously limited to on-premises high-performance (HPC) storage systems. With Avere Systems, you can achieve unlimited performance scaling, eliminate latency and cut storage costs by more than 50%.”
“The Avere C2N System transforms traditional storage environments into cloud infrastructure that scales from 120 Terabytes to more than five Petabytes to provide an easy and economical path to the cloud. Unlike other object storage solutions that start at a petabyte or more, Avere offers an entry-point solution built for starting small and scaling to large capacities for demanding applications in media and entertainment, life sciences, financial services, technology and other high data-growth industries.”
Today Avere Systems and Cycle Computing announced a technology integration that enables hybrid high-performance computing (HPC) in popular public cloud computing environments. By integrating the Avere vFXT Edge filer cloud bursting technology with Cycle Computing’s CycleCloud offering, users are now able to launch an Avere tiered file system on demand linked directly with the CycleCloud managed scalable compute nodes through cloud providers like AWS, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure.
Cloud computing is growing and replacing many data centers for High Performance Computing (HPC) applications. However, the movement towards using a cloud infrastructure is not without challenges. This whitepaper discusses many of the challenges in moving from an on-premise HPC solution to using an HPC Cloud Solution.
“The virtually infinite scale of cloud compute resources is now within easy reach from either existing network-attached or object-based storage. No longer is the location of your storage a roadblock to reaping the ease, timeliness, and cost offered by cloud compute services. Avere’s Enterprise Cloud Bursting solution utilizes the Virtual FXT Edge filer (vFXT) which puts high-performance, scalable NAS where you need it to enable massive compute on-demand for enterprise apps with simple installation and zero hardware maintenance. Avere makes your NAS data accessible to cloud compute without experiencing latency or requiring that your data be moved to the cloud.”
