Hammerspace Acquires Rozo Systems to Expand Performance Capabilities of its Unstructured Data Orchestration System
SAN MATEO, Calif. – May 11, 2023 – Hammerspace, the leader in data orchestration of enterprise file data to any compute, application, or user anywhere, today announced the acquisition of Rozo Systems. Rozo Systems is the creator of the Mojette Transform, the patented erasure coding technology which, as part of the Hammerspace Data Orchestration System, enables users to maximize performance in any location, expand to hyperscale capacity, and adapt to virtually any workload as it spans from the edge, to data centers, and the cloud.
The Importance of Delivering Cost-Effective Performance, Everywhere
Data-driven organizations have rapidly become more decentralized, with files being created, analyzed, and moved across locations constantly. The speed of capturing the data, identifying which is most valuable, and making the valuable data available to the applications and users anywhere they need will differentiate the successful businesses of the future.
“Organizations need performance throughout their workflows,” said Pierre Evenou, previous Rozo Systems Founder and CEO and now Vice President, Advanced Technology at Hammerspace. “The integration of Rozo’s technology into the Hammerspace Data Orchestration System will help organizations get the most out of their expensive data creation instruments and compute clusters while also accelerating data analytics and collaboration.”
Rozo’s performance capabilities, using industry-standard hardware, can deliver 1Tb/s+ with only eight commodity servers connected on a 200Gb/E network. Together with the Hammerspace Data Orchestration System, this allows customers to orchestrate files directly to the compute, application, or user at peak performance, nearly saturating the capabilities of their infrastructure. This approach provides maximum flexibility and enables customers to seamlessly expand workflows across any on-prem or cloud storage from any vendor.
“Rozo’s best-in-class erasure coding provides the right balance of price, performance, capacity efficiency, resiliency and availability,” said Tony Asaro, Senior Vice President of Business Development for Hammerspace. “This is essential for organizations with massive amounts of data for multi-site and hybrid cloud environments. Additionally, the Rozo team has years of experience and expertise in file systems, networking, performance and more, further bolstering Hammerspace’s technical leadership.”
