HGST (formerly Hitachi Global Storage Technologies) has unveiled a pre-integrated rack system dedicated to providing scale-out object storage for private and public cloud deployments.
Available to order now, the HGST Active Archive System comprises servers, storage and networking, plus object storage software, all pre-integrated into a 42U rack for easy deployment into a customer's data centre.
The object storage software is based on technology HGST gained from the acquisition of Amplidata, and presents an object interface compliant with that of Amazon's S3 cloud storage service, enabling it to easily integrate with existing S3-aware applications.
Starting out with a capacity of 4.7PB of raw storage, the Active Archive System has been designed to address the growing business need for access to huge data stores, while removing the need for customers to architect and operate 'white box' cloud storage solutions themselves.
