Penguin Computing Collaborates with Red Hat and Seagate Technology to Offer Scalable Storage for Demanding Applications

Penguin Computing, Inc., a division of SMART Global Holdings, Inc. and provider of high-performance computing (HPC) solutions, has partnered with Red Hat and Seagate Technology to deliver its DeepData solution with Red Hat Ceph Storage.

The Penguin Computing DeepData solution with Red Hat Ceph Storage is built upon capacity and workload-optimized server and storage building blocks and software-defined storage technologies to provide a scale-out, data-resilient solution that can quickly grow with expanding data requirements.

The DeepData solution can be integrated into existing bare-metal, containerized, virtual, or cloud environments.

It can be deployed as a standalone solution or in combination with other Penguin Computing solutions for data, HPC, AI/analytics, and cloud to provide an end-to-end workload driven environment.

The DeepData solution is solving the market challenge of tackling platform complexity by leveraging software-defined architectures on workload tested platforms, and providing expert users direct access to emerging technologies.

“Through our work with Red Hat and Seagate, the DeepData solution is accelerating adoption of software-defined architectures by delivering a proven and tested turn-key enterprise solution,” said Kevin Tubbs, Ph.D., and senior vice president, strategic solutions group at Penguin Computing. “Incredibly scalable with security measures built-in and able to support workloads driven by large amounts of data, our DeepData solution is designed to leverage high capacity, cost-effective enterprise storage solutions that meet the needs of tomorrow’s data sets—with no single point of failure.”

DeepData solution key benefits and features include:

  • Highly-available enterprise storage building blocks with no single-point of failure.
  • Multi-exabyte scalable storage designed to meet data growth challenges.
  • Distributed data protection across the entire storage environment so that data is always accessible.
  • Enterprise security features that provide at-rest and end-to-end encryption, and Active Directory, Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), and Keystone authorization and authentication.

With the launch of Penguin Computing’s four dedicated technology practices, DeepData is an integral part of the Data Practice which delivers modern data architectures that leverage rapidly evolving open hardware combined with the stability, utility and flexibility of innovative software architectures.
