Hammerspace Introduces an All-New Storage Architecture | Read the Press Release

October 9-12, 2023

The AI in Health Conference is your opportunity to connect with and learn from researchers, engineers, clinicians, and entrepreneurs at the forefront of artificial intelligence in healthcare and public health. Brought to you by the Ken Kennedy Institute at Rice University, this program will address the current state of artificial intelligence in health and showcase a research-based outlook on the next 10 years. 

The AI in Health Conference will take place in Houston, home of the largest medical center in the world – the Texas Medical Center – which hosts 60+ member institutions that are visited by 10 million patients each year. The intersection of healthcare and artificial intelligence holds potential, unlike any other innovation the medical industry has seen before. Artificial intelligence’s ability to operate and automate tasks at heightened speed, efficiency, and accuracy has already made an impact on day-to-day hospital care and administrative functions.

Hammerspace Solution: No Compromises

Hammerspace software is designed from the ground up to scale up and out to accommodate even extreme workload requirements, enabling customers to parallelize performance across any vendor storage, network, or cloud resource they prefer. 

At the core is its high-performance Parallel Global File System that can span on-premises and cloud instances to provide a cross-platform global namespace to all users everywhere. It is built with a scale-out architecture that can saturate any network, storage type or interconnect.

With Hammerspace, all users in all locations see the same file system metadata, even for environments spanning multiple on-prem and cloud-based storage and compute environments. And with metadata-driven objective-based policies, data management is automated behind the scenes across silos and locations without interrupting users or applications. Most importantly, it can now keep up with your high-performance workloads.

Hammerspace is designed to help research organizations and other HPC environments create, process, and manage even extreme volumes of HPC data, and to enable collaboration across a decentralized environment.

Hammerspace is a software-defined solution that can run on bare-metal, VMs and in the cloud. Hammerspace clusters can scale out to accommodate extreme performance within the datacenter as well as to span as many as 16 locations concurrently, including on-prem and multiple cloud instances.
