BlueArc’s Titan Architecture creates a revolutionary step in file servers by creating a hardware-based file system that can scale throughput, IOPS and capacity well beyond conventional software-based file servers. With its ability to virtualize a massive storage pool of up to 4 petabytes of usable, tiered storage, Titan can scale with growing data requirements and provide a competitive advantage for business processes by consolidating applications while ensuring optimal performance.
Medical research is surging into the 21st Century, and includes the dawn of personalized medicine. The realization of personalized medicine is being driven by the increasing speed and dropping costs of gene sequencing. These new technologies for rapid sequencing have created a dramatic need for storage technologies that will radically increase the speed, while reducing costs for research storage. Read this white paper to learn how the exponential growth in genome-mapping data has spawned the growth in affordable, petabyte-capacity storage solutions that can scale as quickly as the data is produced.
In the world of biomedical research, particularly in the fields of genomics and personalized medicine, the exponential volumes of data created are rapidly overtaking conventional data storage technologies. In answer to this challenge, the next generation of petabyte-scale data storage technologies is here. Watch this archived Webinar to learn about affordable and easily scalable data storage solutions that are ready to partner with and facilitate the future of biomedical research breakthroughs.

Object-based storage (referred to as OBS throughout this document) platforms continue to perpetuate cloud and enterprise IT infrastructure. As businesses move toward petabyte-scale data storage, OBS solutions are turning out to be the right choice for balancing scale, complexity, and costs. By way of their core design principles, OBS platforms deliver unprecedented scale at reduced complexity and reduced costs over the long term. Early OBS platforms suffered from "necessity crisis," were too
cumbersome to deploy and, in some cases, caused a platform lock-in because of their proprietary access mechanisms. In spite of their from-the-ground-up design, a departure from how traditional SAN and NAS arrays are deployed and, more importantly, a lack of standard interfaces made it difficult for
IT organizations to deploy OBS solutions in the infrastructure. Thanks to Amazon S3 and OpenStack Swift becoming de facto access interfaces, this situation has changed.
You can have all the latest features of iOS 8 on your iPhone, but if you’re still using an iPhone 4s, you won’t be able to take advantage of most of them.
This should serve as an appropriate metaphor for this audience because when it comes to data storage, many of today’s storage solutions have been around since the 1970s…as in the the world of mobile, today’s data storage needs are revealing just how limited those older solutions are. Even if a company has updated almost everything in its IT ecosystem, it takes only one unchanged layer to prevent them from realizing the benefits of the latest technology.
With petabyte scale, reliability, performance, and efficiency the order of the day we are fast approaching that point with storage. There is without question a need to change in the current storage paradigm.
In this webinar you will learn about current IT storage challenges and useful insights about next-generation storage solutions.
