News Flashes

Cirata, the company that automates Hadoop data transfer and integration to modern cloud analytics and AI platforms, is now offering support for IBM General Parallel File System (GPFS), a cluster file system used as storage for IBM Spectrum Scale data lakes. The new Live GPFS support, which is included in the recent release of Cirata Data Migrator 2.5, dramatically reduces latency between storage changes and replication or migration outcomes while also enhancing the performance and scale of GPFS-resident data assets migrating to the cloud, according to the company.  

Hammerspace, the company orchestrating the next data cycle, is adding the S3 interface to its Global Data Platform, advancing the orchestration of existing data sets to available compute resources. With this announcement, Hammerspace continues to offer organizations new, advantageous ways to manage and leverage data, according to the company.

Pliops, a provider of data processors for cloud and enterprise data centers, is delivering broad-spectrum workload acceleration with its Extreme Data Processor (XDP). The company is also collaborating with scale-out software provider Hammerspace and will introduce a new joint solution.

Qumulo, the simple way to manage exabyte-scale data anywhere, is joining the Ultra Ethernet Consortium—becoming one of the first Networked Storage suppliers to enlist. Additionally, Qumulo announced a collaboration with Intel Corporation and Arista Networks to advance the state-of-the-art in IT infrastructure at the intersection of networking, storage, and data management.
