Avere Systems showcases milestone cloud performance with Amazon S3

Avere

Avere Systems, a leading source for enterprise storage aimed at cloud enabled data centers, has posted the first ever SPECsfs2008 NFS.v.3 results using a public cloud storage service as persistent storage. The results corroborate that- with edge-core storage architecture, the cloud can replace traditional storage arrays as the repository for corporate data.

Avere Systems FXT Edge filers with FlashCloud for Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) from Amazon Web Services (AWS) provided Cloud NAS storage that enabled the performance scalability via familiar NAS protocols on customer premises at the edge of the storage network, while leveraging object-based cloud storage services provided by Amazon S3, in the core of the storage network. The use of Amazon S3 eliminated the need for owning, provisioning and managing the storage capacity.

“Until now, public cloud storage has been used primarily for backup and archive applications because of poor performance due to latency imposed by the physical distance of the data center to the cloud, and the simple gateway products used to translate file to object protocols are not designed to handle the demands of enterprise applications,” alleged Ron Bianchini, Avere president and CEO.

Supplementing that – “These results show that with a scalable, cloud-ready storage architecture, organizations can begin to move data currently stored on premises to services like Amazon S3 in order to take advantage of the enormous cost savings.”
