Modernizing and Future-Proofing Your Storage Infrastructure – Part 4

Data—the gold that today’s organizations spend significant resources to acquire—is ever-growing and underpins significant innovation in technologies for storing and accessing it. In this technology guide, we’ll show why different applications and workflows will always have data storage and access requirements, making it critical for planning to understand that a heterogeneous storage infrastructure is needed for a fully functioning organization.

StorONE and Seagate Partner to Maximize SSD Performance Specs

Today StorONE announced record speeds using Seagate SSD drives and StorONE’s TRU S1 Software Defined Storage solution. In recent performance testing, StorONE combined its software with Seagate’s enterprise-class SSDs in a virtual appliance configuration that reached a breakthrough half a million IOPS with 24 Seagate SSDs and all enterprise-class data protection features running. The high-availability, failure-proof VMware cluster with two nodes achieved this throughput on random reads (4K) and 180,000 IOPS on random writes (4K) with latency of less than 0.2 milliseconds.

Seagate Rolls Out 14 Terabyte Hard Drives

Today Seagate launched the industry’s widest range of advanced 14TB hard drives, enhancing the company’s enterprise and specialty drive portfolio. Their new IronWolf drives for network attached storage (NAS) applications are purpose-built for customers to consume, manage and utilize digital data more effectively and efficiently while establishing new benchmarks in speed and capacity. “Data protection, management and archiving are no longer strictly the realm of IT departments, but are now essential responsibilities for business owners, creative professionals, online gamers and PC users alike,” said Matt Rutledge, senior vice president of devices at Seagate. “We understand the critical nature of data in unlocking opportunities to efficiency. From the largest data center to the personal user, our goal is to ensure every customer can access, store and transfer data quickly and reliably, whenever they need it and wherever they are.”

Cray Assimilates ClusterStor from Seagate

Today Cray announced it has completed the previously announced transaction and strategic partnership with Seagate centered around the addition of the ClusterStor high-performance storage business. “As a pioneer in providing large-scale storage systems for supercomputers, it’s fitting that Cray will take over the ClusterStor line.”

Agenda Posted for LAD’17 in Paris

The LAD’17 conference has posted their meeting agenda. Also known as the Lustre Administrator and Developer Workshop, the event takes place Oct. 4-5 in Paris. “EOFS and OpenSFS are organizing the seventh european lustre workshop. This will be a great opportunity for Lustre worldwide administrators and developers to gather and exchange their experiences, developments, tools, good practices and more.”

Seagate Updates Nytro Flash Storage

Today Seagate announced enhanced versions of two flash technologies to boost performance and capacity for mixed data center workloads. The updated solid-state drives — including the Nytro 5000 M.2 non-volatile memory express (NVMe) SSD and the Nytro 3000 Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) SSD — address different segments of the cloud and data center markets and help organizations maximize the value of their data. Anticipating the needs of a range of hyperscale data centers and cloud providers in the future, Seagate also will highlight a 64-terabyte (TB) NVMe add-in card (AIC) reading 13 gigabytes per second (GB/s) — the fastest and highest-capacity SSD ever demonstrated. “Seagate is investing heavily in their already broad range of NVMe and SAS enterprise-class products aimed directly at the data center, cloud, and hyperscale storage markets,” said George Crump, lead analyst of Storage Switzerland. “With some product specifications increasing by as much as five times over the last generation, these products are ideally aligned to meet the ever expanding requirements of this market.”

DDN Announces Trade-Up Program for Seagate Customers

DataDirect Networks has announced a trade-up program designed to offer Seagate customers a smooth transition to industry-leading DDN solutions. “It is a sad day when an industry built on long-term commitments is left in disarray, but DDN is stepping up to manage a smooth transition into the safe, stable, high-performance and industry-winning storage solutions to which every HPC customer is entitled,” said Alex Bouzari, DDN co-founder and CEO.
