TOO BIG TO STORE?
Versity solutions are ideal for a wide range of industry verticals with one thing in common; the amount of incoming data is potentially overwhelming, and more is on the way. Versity can address storage performance and cost-efficiency so that IT can deploy resources for the greatest strategic advantage and value.
AI & Machine Learning
AI and ML applications are growing rapidly. These tools create value when they have access to diverse cloud-scale data repositories. The ScoutAM platform supports AI and ML workloads by efficiently storing exabyte scale data sets on a composable mix of storage resources. Read intensive workloads like AI and ML can be executed in parallel using ScoutAM.
Big HPC simulations and science projects generate large data sets which need to be processed downstream and protected for the long term. Versity solutions conserve valuable high-cost parallel filesystem resources by providing an easily accessed secondary location for large data sets like checkpoints on lower-cost storage resources, including object storage and tape.
HPC & Big Data
Versity supports advanced data retention and immutability features like WORM that are crucial for the intense regulatory environment at large banks and financial institutions. Hybrid systems with backup data written into the mass storage platform are needed for scalability and efficient handling of extremely large backup sets. Versity archiving includes features for quickly locating and satisfying even the most difficult regulatory and compliance-related requests.
Oil & Gas Exploration
Exploration data is very costly to collect and difficult to store due to the volume of data produced by newer generations of echolocation sensors. In addition, the Oil & Gas industry is always under intense competitive pressure to drive down costs. Mass storage systems like ScoutAM that offer high performance at the absolute lowest cost per TB are an ideal fit for oil and gas workloads.
Media & Entertainment
4k and 5k resolutions, along with advances in special effects technology have dramatically increased storage costs in the media and entertainment industry. Mass storage systems with cloud-scale efficiency and performance are needed to replace legacy storage systems. Long-term preservation of valuable media assets is also an imperative in the media and entertainment field.
Global telecommunications companies manage extreme-scale data collections and are subject to data retention and data preservation requirements. Redundant data storage systems are deployed to ensure the viability of key data assets. Versity offers specific solutions that meet the needs of telecommunications companies.
Each new generation of satellites is equipped with dramatically enhanced sensors generating exponentially larger amounts of data. In Geospatial applications there is often no second opportunity to capture temporal or location-based data. Therefore protection copies are vital. Operational log data from satellites is also extremely valuable and important to preserve. Versity’s mass storage platform is well-suited to both rapid ingest and long-term data retention.
Modern lab equipment produces orders of magnitudes more data than systems that were deployed just a few years earlier. From sequencing data to chemical structure information, data-intensive instruments, methods, and applications are proliferating. To manage the data cost-effectively, organizations are moving toward cloud-scale mass storage systems like ScoutAM.
Cloud repatriation is the shift away from public cloud providers and back to on-premise infrastructure. Since data collections > 5PB are approximately 5x to 10x less expensive to manage on-premise (depending on how much data is accessed), many sites are actively repatriating data. A successful cloud repatriation strategy requires a scalable, modular, highly-efficient storage platform like ScoutAM.
Versity maintains a substantial presence in the national security vertical where extreme-scale data collections with the most rigorous security, preservation, and availability requirements exist. The Versity platform can provide an air gap storage option for high-security enclaves.
With hundreds of sensors onboard, a single vehicle can produce terabytes of data each day. Some AD sites produce over two petabytes of new data each day from their fleets. Cost efficiency is crucial at this level of data production, and so is the scalability of the overall solution. Autonomous driving sites benefit from a low-cost, high-performance data management platform like ScoutAM.
