“Ngenea’s blazingly-fast on-premises storage stores frequently accessed active data on the industry’s leading high performance file system, IBM Spectrum Scale (GPFS). Less frequently accessed data, including backup, archival data and data targeted to be shared globally, is directed to cloud storage based on predefined policies such as age, time of last access, frequency of access, project, subject, study or data source. Ngenea can direct data to specific cloud storage regions around the world to facilitate remote low latency data access and empower global collaboration.”

World’s First Data-Aware Cloud Storage Gateway Coming to SC15

Today ArcaStream and General Atomics introduced Ngenea, the world’s first data-aware cloud storage gateway. Ready for quick deployment, Ngenea seamlessly integrates with popular cloud and object storage providers such as Amazon S3, Google GCS, Scality, Cleversafe and Swift and is optimized for data-intensive workflows in life science, education, research, and oil and gas exploration.
