PolyServe Software Integrated Into Clustered Enterprise File Services Solution From HP

BEAVERTON, Ore., May 16 /PRNewswire/ -- PolyServe, Inc. today announced the PolyServe File Serving Solution will be bundled and sold as part of the new HP Enterprise File Services Clustered Gateway.

Under an OEM agreement the companies have signed, PolyServe's advanced cluster file system and storage virtualization software will be integrated into the HP Enterprise File Services Clustered Gateway. The HP solution leapfrogs traditional Network Attached Storage (NAS) providers' wares by offering customers dramatically better price, performance and availability based on industry-standard computing devices.

"The monolithic NAS appliance is yesterday's news. By adopting PolyServe's open and modular approach to delivering performance and availability, HP is changing the game in enterprise file serving," said Mike Stankey, president and CEO of PolyServe. "HP's entry into the enterprise file serving market will be enhanced by their leadership position in the Windows-based file serving space, and we expect HP's validation of PolyServe's technology to dramatically accelerate the adoption of our file serving technology among large enterprises worldwide."

PolyServe's software-centric file serving approach aggregates Intel- architecture and Linux-based servers and networked storage to form a scalable, fault-tolerant, and manageable file serving platform for both commercial data center and high-performance computing (HPC) applications. The solution integrates a symmetric cluster file system, storage virtualization software, Network File System (NFS) support, and high availability services into a single point of management for modularly scalable throughput and storage capacity management.

The HP EFS Clustered Gateway pairs the PolyServe File Serving Solution on Linux with HP ProLiant DL380 servers to form a high-performance, low-cost, and fault-tolerant alternative to traditional NAS appliances. The HP gateway product can be sold as a front end to existing HP storage and as an add-on to the newly announced models of the HP StorageWorks Enterprise Virtual Arrays -- the EVA4000, 6000 and 8000.

"The PolyServe File Serving Solution is a key enabling technology in our strategy to provide customers with scalable performance and high availability with the price benefits of industry-standard technology," said Harry Baeverstad, director of StorageWorks NAS Division at HP. "Our competitors' proprietary offerings will simply be unable to keep pace with HP on price, performance and availability for enterprise file serving."

The integrated solution will be offered worldwide through HP's direct sales force and channel partners. HP also plans to provide direct customer support of PolyServe's software.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
