EMC's second-generation Atmos goes five times faster

Amazon S3 interoperability coming

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

EMC World EMC has announced its second generation Atmos cloud storage platform that can take in objects five times faster and will have API access to Amazon's S3 service.

Atmos is EMC's storage array for cloud service providers, and was introduced in November, 2008.

EMC claims that Atmos 2 can handle up to 500 million objects a day. EMC has introduced GeoParity software to protect data held in Atmos systems, and it is helped by Atmos storing object segments instead of entire objects across distributed storage environments. The company claims customers with 4-site Atmos systems can see a 65 per cent efficiency improvement.

GeoDRive software enables Windows apps and users transparent access "to the cloud", as EMC puts it, in minutes. Customers can install the software and almost immediately begin moving data to the "cloud", meaning to Atmos storage.

There is an Atmos software development kit (SDK) which supports Apple iOS and EMC's Centera integrated applications via Centera/XAM, enabling data transfer and integration between these platforms and Atmos. An API will be available in this second quarter of 2011, in beta form, to integrate Atmos and Amazon's S3 service.

Atmos 2.0, GeoDrive and the beta version of the Amazon S3 interoperability API will be available in the second quarter of 2011. ®
