In this slidecast, BlackSky CEO Scott Alexander presents an overview of the company’s HPC products including their new Apollo Storage System.

We created this product because we looked for an HPC storage system for our own internal cloud and for our customers for more than a year and found nothing that satisfied all the requirements for compute intensive applications,” said Scott Alexander, co-founder and CEO, BlackSky Computing. “The only offerings with sufficient I/O were cost prohibitive because they weren’t designed for high performance computing or render farms. The Apollo storage system was purpose built to deliver the three essential features for HPC storage – tremendous capacity at low $/TB; proportional network bandwidth in and out of the device which will cripple HPC applications if not done correctly; and expandability under one file system to very large volumes.”
