Combining software storage with powerful storage hardware, the two companies respond to rapid data growth and the increasing demand for safe, cost-efficient, and fast storage solutions for all enterprise workloads.
Quobyte and Rausch showcased their joint solution on June 20 to 22 at Europe’s biggest HPC event, the ISC High-Performance in Frankfurt/Main.
A first result of the partnership is the combination of Rausch’s BigFoot Storage XXLarge with Quobyte’s data center file system. The BigFoot Storage XXLarge is a server and storage system with a massive storage capacity and a particularly high packing density, making it powerful.
Together with Quobyte’s software-defined storage, that makes for a robust and highly available storage system that scales out and gains performance linearly with every added node.
Starting with four servers, the system can be extended to hundreds of nodes handling petabytes of data and beyond. Customers are all set when running their demanding workloads and can rely on Quobyte’s support for OpenStack, container infrastructures, or HPC clusters.
“Quobyte’s simple management and its automation capabilities immediately got me hooked,” says Sebastian Nölting, Rausch’s CEO, “and the software really delivered: hardware can now run at full capacity – which is especially great for those of our customers who deal with huge amounts data and high request rates.“
“The BigFoot server and Quobyte’s software together form an accomplished storage solution. Customers get a unified storage system that allows for centralized management, is fail-safe, and builds on Rausch’s excellent hardware,” remarks Felix Hupfeld, Quobyte’s CTO.
