KALISTA IO and Western Digital are innovating to address the explosive growth of digital data.
Join us for a discussion and demo on reducing tail latency and cost of ownership with Phalanx storage system and Ultrastar® Host-Managed SMR HDDs.
Built for data center class workloads, Ultrastar DC HC620 is ideal for dense scale-out storage systems. It delivers the uncompromising product reliability necessary for private and public cloud enterprise applications. Ultrastar DC HC620 is built on the proven and mature HelioSeal® platform to deliver an exceptional watts/TB power footprint for online storage.
An intelligent storage system built for software-defined environments and next generation storage devices. Phalanx is engineered to deliver consistent and predictable performance at scale. Most importantly, it is designed to fit easily into existing workflows and orchestration/virtualization environments without disruption.
Western Digital and Kalista IO are working together to help customer meet the challenges of big data. We are collaborating to enable, simplify and optimize distributed storage systems with Host Managed SMR devices. Our joint solution delivers performance consistency, predictability and optimal TCO at scale.
Kalista IO is excited to announce the industry's first storage system that enables Apache Hadoop and Ceph storage clusters to finally benefit from Host Managed SMR technology.
As amount of digital data grows exponentially, the ability to store and retrieve it all in a cost effective and performant manner becomes paramount. Host Managed SMR devices offers performance consistency, predictability and a lower TCO than conventional magnetic recording devices. However, these benefits come at the cost of software changes and incompatibility, requiring additional investments in the stack by the user. This is because Host Managed SMR devices are not natively compatible with existing storage stacks and applications. These factors have long hindered the adoption of Host Managed SMR, frustrating both storage vendors and users.
Designed and optimized to work with commodity hardware and next generation storage technologies, Kalista Phalanx enables simple and transparent use of Host Managed SMR devices - allowing users to benefit from Host Managed SMR without the associated deficiencies. With no application nor kernel changes required, Phalanx has minimized the friction and disruption to deploying Host Managed SMR and future storage technologies.
Kalista IO is enabling the democratization of affordable and performant storage solutions world wide. We are looking forward to have you join us!
