Xyratex Adds ClusterStor™ Secure Data Appliance to the Family of High Performance Scale-Out Storage Solutions

ClusterStor™ SDA provides world's first multilevel security scale-out parallel file system data storage solution designed to meet government ICD 503 and Cross Domain Solution (CDS) requirements

FREMONT, Calif., April 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Xyratex, Ltd., a Seagate company (NASDAQ: STX), a leading provider of data storage technology, today announced a new addition to the ClusterStor™ family of High Performance Computing (HPC) and Big Data engineered storage solutions – the ClusterStor Secure Data Appliance (SDA). Designed to meet government ICD 503 and Cross Domain Solution (CDS) requirements, the ClusterStor SDA solution provides multilevel security capabilities combined with the industry's fastest storage performance and largest data capacity available today for productivity critical HPC and Big Data applications. This new ClusterStor solution features end-to-end integration, management and world-class support providing unmatched capability and investment protection in addition to the new multilevel security enhancements. The ClusterStor SDA will be available through Xyratex reseller partners in 2014.

Since its release in June 2011, ClusterStor data storage solutions continue to deliver a new standard in file system throughput and storage performance, scalability and reliability. ClusterStor is an established field production proven solution supporting data capture, simulation, modeling and analysis of petascale data set processing ranging from commercial business critical to government mission critical applications. ClusterStor's innovative modular architecture enables linear performance scalability from several gigabytes per second (GB/s) to over a 1.0 terabytes per second and flexible data storage capacity deployments ranging from tens of terabyte (TB) to over 25 petabyte (PB) of data storage capacity, all managed within a single global name space. With this remarkable degree of flexibility, ClusterStor satisfies the widest spectrum of HPC and Big Data needs in the industry in helping organizations do more with their existing budgets with substantially better results.

With its multilevel security capabilities, the ClusterStor SDA provides the means to manage multiple data types and multiple security classifications in a single file system on a single network, supporting high-speed data storage throughput and massively scalable data processing. The ClusterStor SDA is ideally suited for mission critical government applications, such as Geospatial imagery capture which requires high performance ingest rates, massively parallel data access to support intensive data analysis and large data storage capacity archive. 

"The enthusiastic response from our government customers, especially in the Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Communities (IC) has been truly outstanding," said Ken Claffey, Vice President & General Manager ClusterStor at Xyratex. "The ClusterStor SDA represents an industry first, combining low level data access enforcement and logging mechanisms, purpose-built within a proven HPC and Big Data single-system solution. Since our customers need to know exactly who is doing what on their systems, as well as access to complete and explicit audit trails, the ClusterStor SDA delivers all the necessary tools and support to collaboratively share information, while strictly complying with security data protection standards."

The ClusterStor SDA provides security systems administrators the capability to protect against internal as well as external data leaks or malicious attacks throughout the data life cycle process. Further, organizations can realize significant cost reductions in capital expenditures and operational expenses by consolidating separate compute, network and data storage silos used today to segregate security classifications into a single ClusterStor SDA multilevel security solution.

Xyratex will showcase its new ClusterStor SDA in booth #7048 at the GEOINT Symposium (www.geoint2013.com) held April 15 – 17 at the Tampa Convention Center. The GEOINT Symposium, hosted by the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF), is the nation's largest annual and preeminent intelligence event.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken.
