Nimbix and Mangstor have entered a partnership to offer an on-demand solution for high-performance compute and storage for Big Data. This collaborate will expand the company’s solutions for data analysis of seismic processing, bioinformatics and other analytics case uses.
The solution is powered by JARVICE, Nimbix’s Platform-as-a-Service for Big Data and HPC (high-performance computing) applications. It also utilizes InfiniBand RDMA fabric to maximize throughput, the company states.
JARVICE also incorporates Nimbix’s patented Reconfigurable Cloud Computing to achieve industry-leading performance and cost effectiveness, according to the company.
Added to this solution is Mangstor’s NMX-Series Flash Storage Array to bring low-latency benefits to a shared storage environment. The platform will be suited for systems based on Hadoop, Cassandra and other distributed systems.
”Mangstor’s mission of delivering unparalleled storage performance, at Web scale, to the most demanding of high performance use cases, is perfectly complemented by Nimbix’s innovative and scalable high-performance workload orchestration and management capabilities,” said Trevor Smith, Founder and CEO of Mangstor. “I am excited about the potential these two great technologies have to uniquely serve the market for powerful, flexible and easy-to-use high performance computing on-demand.”
The solution is available on the Nimbix cloud as a preview, with general availability scheduled for Q3 of this year.
