LAKEWOOD, Colo., April 1 — HPC Solutions today announced a partnership with NexGen Storage to offer its customers an improved and unique storage solution. NexGen's hybrid storage with QoS accelerates workloads with PCIe SSDs from Fusion-io. ioControl software allows customers to control storage performance and guarantee ROI on solid-state.
HPC Solutions is an Information Technology company that has a long history of innovation and superior customer service in the Rocky Mountain region. HPC Solutions was recently awarded a BPA from the GSA for Storage and Servers.
NexGen's n5 Storage System was recently named a winner in Storage magazine's 'Best Storage Product of the Year' and the 'Editor's Choice Award' for innovation by Virtualization Review. Storage magazine judges gave NexGen high scores for innovation, and highlighted its Storage QoS (quality of service) and use of PCIe solid-state drives (SSDs) in a hybrid architecture. In addition, NexGen's unique Storage QoS capabilities for mission-critical applications, in mixed-workload and virtual server environments, were validated by an Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) lab test.
"We are excited to work with NexGen to offer our clients in federal, state and local governments new innovative technology that addresses challenges in storage not available previously. In addition to the strength of its storage QoS capabilities, NexGen Storage brings unique value to the market with an innovative tiering architecture that delivers high performance and affordable capacity. NexGen enables customers to move data in real-time between high-performing solid-state drives and economical capacity disk drives," said Linda Shugart, HPC Solutions CEO.
"HPC's recent BPA award has enabled us to work with them on an exciting project with a notable Denver area customer," said Mike Koponen, Director of business development. "NexGen's ability to provide consistent application performance and offer the lowest combined $/GB and $/IOP combines to provide a powerful midrange storage solution."
