WASHINGTON, April 8, 2021 — Storbyte, a leading IT hardware pioneer that delivers enterprise storage servers through its channel partners, announced its joint effort with OmniBond Systems to certify OrangeFS, an award-winning parallel scale out storage software solution that has been successfully utilized in High-Performance Computing (HPC) environments. OrangeFS unites individual Storbyte servers, VMs and cloud instances into a high performing parallel storage system with a unified namespace.
“OrangeFS is designed to store data across multiple networked servers and to facilitate high-performance access through simultaneous, coordinated input/output operations between clients and storage nodes,” said Steve Groenke, Chief Executive Officer at Storbyte. “While OrangeFS has been a proven parallel file system that historically has targeted high-performance computing (HPC) environments, it can now be applied to other environments that require access to large files, massive quantities of data, or simultaneous access from multiple compute servers.”
Future Storbyte targeted applications leveraging OrangeFS include climate modeling, computer-aided engineering, exploratory data analysis, financial modeling, genomic sequencing, machine learning, artificial intelligence, seismic processing, video editing, and visual effects rendering.
“OrangeFS is the next generation of Parallel Virtual File Systems,” said Boyd Wilson, Chief Executive Officer at OmniBond Systems. “It is a modern distributed file system, integrated upstream in the Linux kernel, that will bring new and exciting storage services to enterprises that require data-intensive computing and storage.”
The certification process included 18-months of lab testing and optimization. The OrangeFS software stack on the Storbyte hardware defined storage environment provides uninterrupted availability and stability during heavy workloads.
“As data continues to grow and organizations strive to quarry intelligence from data, the need for real-time analytics will continue to increase,” Groenke added. “Storbyte provides a platform of storage solutions on a systems level to enable customers to maximize the value of data, gain competitive advantages, and stay ahead by utilizing our cutting-edge developments and certified solutions.”
