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

Adding Tape to a Unified Global Data Environment

Hammerspace Field CTO Office Hours

Hammerspace provides organizations with a software-defined, high-performance parallel global file system that provides standards-based file access across any existing third-party storage (now including tape), coupled with automated data orchestration to place data in the optimal storage media type or geographic location to meet latency, performance and cost requirements. 

Together with technology partners Grau Data, PoINT Software and Systems and QStar Technologies, Hammerspace now enables organizations to present data on tape, along with data on any other storage type, in an active global namespace via the Hammerspace Global Data Environment.  

Join this office hours for a live conversation on any tape related topic of your choice.  We will also plan to cover how to:

  1. Enable global access and control of data across different storage silos and locations.
  2. Scale both high-performance and cost effective storage in a single parallel global file system.
  3. Strengthen governance, security, and compliance.
  4. Simplify support of corporate Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Initiatives with “Green” Storage.

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.
