Avere Optimising Storage in Exploration
Avere Systems and Quantum Corp. announced a joint storage solution designed to optimize workflows for the oil and gas industry.
The combined approach provides an integrated networked attached storage (NAS) solution with cloud storage that extends data availability at a lower cost, enabling upstream workflows to keep strategic information close at hand, shortening project cycle time and improving exploration analysis. Avere Cloud NAS powered by FlashCloud combined with Quantum Lattus extended online storage delivers cost-effective cloud storage with the high-performance access required for oil and gas exploration.
Advantages of FXT Edge Filers and Lattus for Oil and Gas Environments
With more data than ever before being generated for oil exploration, traditional solutions relying on replication and RAID do not provide cost-effective global access to post_content, can place a heavy burden on network storage, and drive storage capacity demands beyond budget. Together, Avere FlashCloud on FXT Edge Series filers and Quantum Lattus extended online storage provide a comprehensive solution that delivers several key advantages:
Extreme Scalability: Avere FXT filers deliver scalable NAS performance in a clustered configuration while FlashCloud provides access to Quantum Lattus, offering cost-effective performance and capacity that is simple to manage, capable of expanding to hundreds of petabytes without disruption.
Flexible Onramp to the Cloud: Avere’s global namespace joins Lattus and legacy NAS into a single pool of storage so oil and gas users can store their data wherever it makes most sense and adopt Lattus storage at a managed pace.
Avere’s FlashMove® transpost_parently moves live, online data to Lattus without disruption while FlashMirror® replicates data to Lattus for disaster recovery.
Durable, Self-Healing Protection: Lattus delivers built-in data resiliency with self-healing protection, guarding data against component failure and even site disaster.
Lower Cost of Ownership: The combination of FXT Edge filers with Lattus’ cost-effective object storage leverages efficient data spread algorithms that require less storage than RAID to protect data, enabling 70% or more savings in total cost of ownership compared to traditional NAS implementations.
High-Speed Access: Avere Cloud NAS – powered by FlashCloud running on FXT Edge filers – eliminates the latency of access to post_content pools that reside in cloud storage.
