cloud computingToday Penguin Computing announced the availability of the Accelion managed data access platform, a complete, managed file transfer and remote access solution that gives global, cross-functional teams the ability to work with vast amounts of geographically dispersed data and do so with greater speed, security, reliability and accessibility while unifying operations and accelerating collaboration.

For the first time, Penguin Computing customers have the ability to work with remote data at record-setting speeds and mount remote storage and treat it as if it were local, even over high latency network connections. Because data movement is transparent to the application layer, this means that, in many cases, the customer may not need to make any workflow changes between working with local data and working with remote data. This can result in reduced delays in both processing time and time-to-insight.

The Accelion Managed Data Access Platform was expertly engineered to meet the needs of global teams in the Media & Entertainment, Life Sciences, Financial, Government, Energy, Manufacturing and Oil & Gas Industries. The solution is ideal for distributed teams who face pressure to speed time-to-insight, time-to-decision, and eliminate potentially costly or lengthy data migration times that impede progress of data-dependent projects.

Exponential data growth, changes in how teams access and use data, as well as ever-increasing pressure to deliver timely business results is transforming the modern data center,” said Philip Pokorny, chief technology officer at Penguin Computing. “The Accelion Managed Data Access Platform was designed to remove the limitations of traditional WAN technologies that impact teams working with large, geographically dispersed data sets or who need to ensure backup, business continuity, disaster recovery, and compliance. We’re committed to innovation and that’s why we’re so proud to offer this unique solution to our customers.”

Accelion Managed Data Access Platform Features:

  • Unprecedented Performance: offering ~95% bandwidth utilization and near real-time access.
  • Record-Setting Transfer Speed: delivers distributed data faster than traditional methods (even over high latency network connections), up to 25x faster when using 100 Gbps connectivity.
  • Simplicity: ease of use and management through a configurable, web-based, graphical, multi-site dashboard for administrators, and graphical client or mount-point access for users.
  • Flexibility: offers simple integration into existing infrastructure (IT, LAN, WAN), and it is transport protocol independent and compatible with various storage systems (supports industry-standard NFSv3/4 and SMBv3 connectivity, expandable tiered storage with embedded drives or external iSCSI/FC-attached storage).
