BANGALORE, INDIA: Seagate is integrating IBM Spectrum Scale software with its ClusterStor High Performance Computing (HPC) storage to deliver a new software defined storage appliance, which will be available late in 2015.

The new appliance will help users manage the demands of data-intensive workloads, such as genomic research, computer aided design, digital media, data analytics, financial model analysis and electronic design simulations.

“The newly engineered system will help clients to manage demanding, data-hungry high performance computing applications more efficiently than before,” said Ken Claffey, vice president and general manager, Seagate HPC systems business. “To do so, we are building on the Seagate core, extending innovation from the device into the information infrastructure, both on-site and in the Cloud.”

Seagate’s ClusterStor helps solve today’s toughest HPC storage challenges— for users in a wide range of industries that rely on supercomputing applications.

“Organizations in all industries are looking for faster and more cost efficient ways to store, manage and access data for critical business processes and insight-generating analytics,” said Bernie Spang, vice president, IBM software defined infrastructure.

IBM Spectrum Scale’s simplified data management and integrated information lifecycle tools are capable of managing petabytes of data and billions of files, in order to manage the growing cost of dealing with ever increasing amounts of data. It also helps clients manage massive amounts of data globally in a fast and easy manner from a single dashboard.
