Working remote at faster speeds with Accelion
|Christian Hargrave in Enterprise Monday, July 2, 2018|
A managed data access platform, Accelion, is now available by Penguin Computing to provide better data accessibility to high latency network connections.
Penguin Computing announced the availability of the Accelion managed data access platform, a complete managed file transfer and remote access solution that gives global, cross-functional teams the ability to work with vast amounts of geographically dispersed data and do so with greater speed, security, and reliability.
Penguin Computing customers now have the ability to mount remote storage and treat it as if it were local, even over high latency network connections. Because data movement is transparent to the application layer, in many cases the customer may not need to make any workflow changes between working with local data and working with remote data. This can result in reduced delays in both processing time and time-to-insight.
“Exponential data growth, changes in how teams access and use data, as well as ever-increasing pressure to deliver timely business results is transforming the modern data center,” said Philip Pokorny, Chief Technology Officer at Penguin Computing. “The Accelion managed data access platform was designed to remove the limitations of traditional WAN technologies that impact teams working with large, geographically dispersed data sets or who need to ensure backup, business continuity, disaster recovery, and compliance. We are committed to innovation which is why we’re so proud to offer this unique solution to our customers.”
Accelion managed data access platform features:
- Increased Performance: offering ~95% bandwidth utilization and near real-time access.
- Better Transfer Speed: delivers distributed data faster than traditional methods (even over high latency network connections).
- Simplicity: ease of use and management through a configurable, web-based multi-site dashboard for administrators, and graphical client or mount-point access for users.
- Flexibility: offers simple integration into existing infrastructure (IT, LAN, WAN), and is transport protocol independent and compatible with various storage systems (supports industry-standard NFSv3/4 and SMBv3 connectivity, expandable tiered storage with embedded drives or external iSCSI/FC-attached storage).
