BOSTON, Mass., Aug. 27 -- Terascala, the fast data company, today announced that it has published a special report featuring Gartner research about the benefits of data storage appliances. Along with Gartner’s recent storage appliance research, Terascala offers their insights on optimizing high-performance computing (HPC). The paper is available at http://www.terascala.com/gartner-report.
In the report, Gartner includes the following observations about storage appliances: “Appliances now represent a packaging and delivery option that storage managers must evaluate. Gartner believes that storage appliances will remain a viable packaging and deployment model in the industry for many years to come.”
Gartner recommends, “Storage managers adopt appliances when you need fast deployment and reduced operational management with predictable performance, but remember that costs can fluctuate depending on how a solution is scaled and deployed.”
As organizations of all sizes face the daunting challenge of managing large volumes of data, HPC accommodates the computationally intensive algorithms required to process massive amounts of data. HPC, once thought of solely in terms of academic and national laboratories, is moving increasingly deeper into the enterprise with departmental and divisional use of clustered computing to accomplish research that often leads to new or improved products or services, medical discoveries, or better ways of doing things.
Terascala provides the operating system and analytics that transforms block storage and controllers from Dell, EMC, and NetApp into an easy-to-manage storage appliance that delivers multiple gigabytes per second of throughput for HPC workloads. Terascala-powered storage appliances can reduce run times to hours instead of days or weeks, delivering unmatched value both in terms of initial investment and long-term operating costs.
Terascala is the fast data company. Terascala storage appliances dramatically accelerate the time to insight for organizations that rely on simulation, analysis, and modeling tools to bring new products and innovation to market. Exclusively available through strategic partners Dell, EMC, and NetApp, Terascala storage appliances provide on-demand throughput at multiple gigabytes per second while leveraging industry-leading storage platforms for long-term data protection.
