HP ProLiant Gen8: Integrated lifecycle automation

Storage Computer Corp. has delivered one of the first software products to date aimed at storing and backing up data running on large clusters of Opteron servers.

Storage Computer has released CyberNAS 64/Cluster - a product targeted at helping customers in the high performance computing market store their data on network attached storage (NAS) systems. The software can connect up to 300 storage systems as a cluster, scaling up to a stunning 9 petabytes. The software is tuned to run in tandem with 64-bit servers powered by AMD's Opteron processor.

 "The AMD Opteron processor with its advanced Hypertransport technology powers CyberNAS 64/Cluster software into ground breaking storage management terabit performance and petabyte usable online capacity," said Sean Murphy, a vice president at Storage Computer.

Storage Computer - the proud owner of the storage.com domain - is looking for customers with large databases or big, media files to use the software. By clustering NAS systems together. Storage Computer can fit these large files across numerous relatively low-cost boxes while still providing solid data back-up and management features.

At this time, Storage Computer is trying to tempt hardware OEMs with the software. It will be demonstrated next week at AMD's LinuxWorld booth. ®
