July 23 -- Silicon Mechanics, Inc., a leading manufacturer of rackmount servers, storage, and high-performance computing clusters, announces that it will showcase its partnership with Seagate at OSCON (Open Source Convention) booth #419, to be held July 22-26, 2013, in Portland, Oregon. As a Seagate Cloud Builder Alliance partner, Silicon Mechanics leverages technology and expertise from Seagate, which offers a great variety of enterprise-grade hard-disk, solid-state, and hybrid storage technologies, enabling them to customize infrastructures based on unique capacity and performance needs.
Silicon Mechanics relies on Seagate enterprise SAS hard drives, with speeds from 7.2K to 15K RPM, for fast and reliable storage. Seagate sales representative Louise Weidner will be at Silicon Mechanics’ booth to discuss the very latest in new technology from Seagate.
Silicon Mechanics also congratulates SwiftStack, Inc. on its launch of SwiftStack private cloud storage created for today’s applications. Silicon Mechanics is proud to announce that it provides hardware integration services to SwiftStack, and the two companies are working together to design solutions and collaborate on customer deployments.
On display at Silicon Mechanics’ booth will be zStax StorCore 104, an enterprise-class, software-defined storage solution based on industry-standard x86 hardware and built on ZFS, which provides open, unified storage management. Industry experts Steve and Tommy Scherer will join zStax product manager Tony Vetter and a team of Silicon Mechanics engineers and specialists to demonstrate zStax and discuss how it can solve storage challenges. Drop by the booth to meet the product manager and find out the demonstration schedule.
Powered by NexentaStor, a fully featured NAS/SAN software platform, Silicon Mechanics’ zStax family of storage management solutions delivers high-capacity, high-performance, reliable, unified storage, while eliminating vendor lock-in and lowering the total cost of ownership for storage infrastructures. OSCON attendees can get a close hand look at how zStax delivers high-performance, scalable, cloud- and virtualization-optimized storage management at a fraction of the cost of legacy vendors.
The zStax StorCore 104 provides support for CIFS, NFS, iSCSI, InfiniBand, and Fibre Channel storage access. Says Steve Scherer, “With features like a hybrid storage pool architecture and optional high-speed network interfaces, the zStax StorCore 104 meets and exceeds the performance requirements of today’s business, all without proprietary hardware.”
