AWS customers can enjoy the benefits of storageless data to take the complexity out of storing and managing file data. It enables data portability and simplifies how data is stored and managed on-premises and across AWS regions so you can run your apps anywhere.
Customers of Hammerspace are focused on cloud-first strategies to solve common use cases such as cache-to-cloud, burst-to-cloud, and multi-site concurrent data access for collaboration, data protection, and DR of their file data.
“Storageless data eliminates data gravity,” said Douglas Fallstrom, SVP product. “Our customers are leveraging AWS to store most of their file data while still keeping their active data close to the application. They centralize data in AWS for ransomware protection, backup, active archive, and DR. And they love that we make it easy to span regions regardless of distance, making data available anywhere without having to copy it everywhere. This saves them a significant amount of time and money.“
New features and enhancements:
- Global File System: Customers can deploy a single namespace across different geographical sites and replicate data and metadata across these sites. The data in global shares are available for read-write on multiple sites at the same time.
- Support for data resilience across Availability Zones on AWS: Hammerspace can be deployed across different availability zones for full data and access resilience within an AWS region. This allows customers to control data placement across availability zones using objectives, in addition to providing HA failover support across availability zones.
- Metering Enabled Consumption: Simplify the licensing of Hammerspace with consumption based on capacity and metered directly through AWS Marketplace AMI subscriptions.
- Backup and Recovery: Maintain data availability across multiple sites in the event of a real disaster with automated and streamlined workflows.
Hammerspace customers include brands across industries including financial services, life sciences, M&E, government, higher education, and legal services.
