Press Release – Hammerspace is Rethinking the Approach to Hybrid Cloud, Working with Western Digital and Amazon Web Services

Software startup delivers Data-as-a-Service across the hybrid cloud and containers

Los Altos, Calif. – Oct 30, 2018 – Hammerspace, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) company dedicated to simplifying data availability across the cloud and containers, today announced the establishment of relationships with both Western Digital and Amazon Web Services (AWS) to allow enterprises to make data genuinely ubiquitous and universally accessible across existing infrastructure, containers, and the cloud.

Enterprises today struggle to cope with vast and growing amounts of unstructured file data. Hammerspace simplifies this effort while creating a seamless experience to make unstructured data available on the cloud. With Hammerspace, customers can run their workloads where they see fit enjoying the best of both worlds, deploying HGST ActiveScale object storage to expand capacity for their on- premises environments and access the analytics and data services of AWS.

At the heart of HGST ActiveScale’s system is an innovative object storage software, offering enhanced scalability, durability, and efficiency. As a turnkey system, the challenges of architecting and integration are removed. It is up and running quickly – put it in place, connect the power, configure the network and it’s online, presenting an Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3)-compliant object interface to Hammerspace.

“Containers and clouds spell disruption for data silos as we’ve known them,” said Douglas Fallstrom, Hammerspace VP Product & Ops. “Leading enterprises and vendors are well aware of the change that’s coming, and Hammerspace helps businesses with digital transformation by making data available whenever and wherever it’s needed. Fortune favors the bold, and we’re proud to be working with strong companies to help solve the data problem and smash the limitations that have confined data for long enough.”

A workspace for data, free from the lock-in of storage silos, Hammerspace is a storage and protocol agnostic hybrid cloud data control plane, abstracting data from the infrastructure for self-service hybrid cloud data management, driven by machine learning and metadata management to deliver Data-as-a- Service.
