Combines Efficiency of Object Storage with Familiarity of NAS to Bring Scalable, Cloud-Aware Infrastructure to Existing IT Environments
“Bardel needed a solution that would allow us to leverage our existing storage environment, while meeting the demands that come with producing industry-recognized animations,” said Eric Legaspi, Director of IT at Bardel. “Avere’s C2N system provides us with an all-in-one solution that combines the simplicity of our existing NAS with the cost efficiency of object storage, enabling us to reap the benefits of object storage without changes to applications or workflows.”
“Cloud migration is the holy grail of enterprise storage, but making the move to the cloud involves many expensive and resource-intensive hurdles that can slow adoption,” said Jeff Tabor, Senior Director of Product Management and Marketing at Avere Systems. “Avere’s C2N is the first of its kind and offers a stepping stone to object storage, transforming existing environments into cloud-aware infrastructure to accelerate performance and hide latency.”
Avere C2N delivers NAS simplicity and performance with a purpose-built file system designed for object storage and the ability to easily fit into existing environments. Each system has an internal all-Flash performance tier built from proven Avere FXT Edge filer technology that scales to keep pace with growing performance demands. Additionally, C2N uses object-based storage technology at its core to simply and efficiently scale data capacity. Capacity can be easily expanded in convenient 75 terabyte increments to scale to more than five petabytes of usable capacity.
