FREMONT, CA, October 19, 2021 — Exxact Corporation, provider of high-performance computing (HPC), artificial intelligence (AI) and data center solutions, and SoftIron, provider of task-specific data infrastructure solutions, today announced a partnership to create solutions for the enterprise designed to make software-defined storage (SDS) simple.

Data center infrastructure is rapidly evolving to meet the needs of the increasingly complex, modern-day enterprise. Competitive advantage relies on an operation that is agile, reliable, and scalable, without sacrificing performance, efficiency, security, and usability. With SoftIron HyperDrive, Exxact can design and build appliance-based solutions from the ground up to ensure every component works at its peak, seamlessly and optimally with everything else in a wire speed chain.

SoftIron’s flagship HyperDrive enterprise storage solution is purpose-built to optimize the performance of Ceph—the leading open-source SDS platform, renowned for its durability, robust resilience, and infinite scalability. Supporting block, file, and object storage, Ceph is the ultimate storage solution for enterprises looking to future-proof their data center infrastructure. Further, HyperDrive facilitates simple, straightforward cluster management, so that organizations do not need an in-house Ceph expert to achieve great results. This means any organization at any scale can benefit from Ceph, fully able to adapt and grow their solution as they need.

“Exxact is proud to be an accredited SoftIron partner, authorized to offer and support our customers with fully integrated data center solutions,” said Andrew Nelson, VP of Technology at Exxact Corporation “By partnering with SoftIron, we are able to offer superior, scalable, task-specific appliances that are undeniably easy to use with an intuitive management interface, delivering effortless usability and streamlined operations.”

“End users in HPC environments now have access to a powerhouse partnership in SoftIron and Exxact Corporation,” says Phil Crocker, VP Channel and Business Development at SoftIron. “Our cutting-edge data infrastructure platform, coupled with Exxact’s deep domain expertise and outstanding, customer-centric reputation delivers world-class expertise, technology and support. We’re incredibly proud to be supported by Exxact Corporation and we look forward to helping organisations maximise the value of their data together.”
