"We are building on the Seagate core, extending innovation from the device into the information infrastructure, both on-site and in the Cloud.”

Seagate Technology is integrating IBM Spectrum Scale software with its ClusterStor High Performance Computing (HPC) storage to deliver a new software defined storage appliance.

According to both parties, the new appliance will help users manage the demands of data-intensive workloads, such as genomic research, computer aided design, digital media, data analytics, financial model analysis and electronic design simulations.

“The newly engineered system will bring the capabilities of IBM Spectrum Scale together with the unique performance efficiency and scalability of Seagate’s ClusterStor systems, helping clients to manage demanding, data-hungry high performance computing applications more efficiently than before,” says Ken Claffey, vice president and general manager, Seagate HPC systems business.

“To do so, we are building on the Seagate core, extending innovation from the device into the information infrastructure, both on-site and in the Cloud.”

IBM Spectrum Scale is part of IBM’s Spectrum Storage software defined storage family helping clients manage growing amounts of data globally.

“Organisations in all industries are looking for faster and more cost efficient ways to store, manage and access data for critical business processes and insight-generating analytics,” says Bernie Spang, vice president, software defined infrastructure, IBM.

“With the IBM Spectrum Storage portfolio, IBM has created building blocks for partners to deliver new and creative technology solutions that help clients meet their diverse needs.”
