SANTA CLARA, Calif. and KAISERSLAUTERN, Germany, April 9, 2019 — E8 Storage and ThinkParQ announced a technology partnership to enable the integration of the leading parallel cluster file system, BeeGFS, with E8 Storage’s NVMe-oF solution. The combined solution will offer customers new levels of improved performance and scalability for data intensive workloads.
With the combination of E8 Storage’s RAID functionality and ThinkParQ’s BeeGFS file system, customers can scale out by adding as many nodes as needed to meet or exceed capacity requirements. The collaboration and synergy of the partnership will deliver high availability, reliability and ease of consumption for use in AI, HPC or other markets where very large volumes of data need to be processed at high-speed.
Delivered by ThinkParQ, BeeGFS is the award-winning open-source parallel file system deployed by thousands of users around the globe. Integrating BeeGFS with E8 Storage’s NVMe-oF solution will enable customers to streamline their I/O patterns for small and large files, providing direct access to data at improved speeds.
Zivan Ori, co-founder and CEO of E8 Storage, commented, “The BeeGFS software complements our portfolio and allows us to deliver better performance, speed and scalability through the use of our E8 Storage agent. This partnership is an exciting move and we look forward to helping customers on their journey by delivering the benefits of our NVMe-oF based solution.”
“Combining E8 Storage’s NVMe-oF offering together with BeeGFS will enable our customers to take advantage of even more state-of-the-art technology, which will provide an even more powerful platform, that will increase the performance compared to the classical approach in leveraging NVMe,” said Frank Herold, CEO ThinkParQ.
