Avere FXT Series Edge Filers and Flash Capabilities Vault Space Data onto the AWS Cloud
PITTSBURGH, PA--(Marketwired - Jan 19, 2016) - Avere Systems, a leading provider of enterprise storage for the hybrid cloud, today announced that NASA has selected Avere to help consolidate legacy storage and move many of its datasets to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud. Avere will be supporting the Ames Research Center, NASA's Silicon Valley field center, which has led NASA in conducting world-class research and development. Breakthrough research conducted at the Ames Research Center includes advancements in supercomputing, NexGen air transportation, missions for low-Earth orbit and the moon, lunar science and advancing human-technology interaction.
The Ames Research Center decided to transition from general NFS and CIFS file services to Amazon Simple Storage Solution (Amazon S3) and considered several options before choosing Avere to lead the transition to the AWS Cloud. With Avere's unique set of capabilities, NASA's Ames Research Center was able to keep speedy NFS/CIFS response times while also benefitting from hybrid capabilities and cost-effective pricing that AWS offers. Additionally, Avere's encryption capabilities were the right fit for NASA's stringent requirements for sensitive data.
Avere FlashMove makes NASA data migrations simple with moves of live data between multiple heterogeneous environments while Avere FlashCloud eliminates the latency associated with cloud by using Avere Edge-Core architecture to make hot data more available while pushing warm and cold data backwards.
"The stakes are high when it comes to the transferring data to and securing it in the cloud -- Avere makes moving legacy storage to AWS very straightforward and safeguarded," said Ron Bianchini, president and CEO at Avere Systems. "With Avere, the researchers at Ames Research Center didn't encounter downtime during their transition and were able to maintain the best possible performance when it comes to accessing their data while keeping the data protected."
