Cleversafe Launches Tiered Storage, Caching Capabilities
Cleversafe’s approach focuses on the storage of objects, which are data but not organized in a hierarchy as are files.Object-based storage specialist Cleversafe expanded its capabilities for a wide range of storage applications and workloads by introducing two Slicestor models and a Cache Vault feature based on the company’s dispersed object-storage technology. Complementing the company’s existing 1440 model, the Slicestor 4100 model delivers 10 times the OPS of the 1440 model using solid-state disk (SSD) technology in a 1U form factor. The Slicestor 2440 model delivers five times the throughput and four times the OPS performance of the Slicestor 1440 with the same storage density (48 times 4 terabyte drives in 4U). Cleversafe’s approach focuses on the storage of objects, which are data but not organized in a hierarchy as are files, and is designed to help automate and streamline data storage.
"Object storage platforms of today need to prove they can meet the performance requirements of a variety of workloads and applications in order to appeal to a more diverse set of use cases beyond archiving," Ashish Nadkarni, research director at IT analytics firm IDC, said in a statement. "With the introduction of its new Slicestor models and Cache Vault feature, Cleversafe has greatly expanded its ability to deliver the scalability and efficiency benefits of object storage across a wide range of customer use cases."
