Space not the final frontier for SAC’s data storage

15 May 2018

With satellites gathering more data every year and at higher resolutions, SAC saw its data acquisition rates double which highlighted a need for a more scalable and affordable storage solution.

With satellites gathering more data every year and at higher resolutions, SAC saw its data acquisition rates double which highlighted a need for a more scalable and affordable storage solution.

Satellite Applications Catapult (SAC) has replaced its legacy NAS with Cloudian’s HyperStore object storage system and HyperFile NAS controller.

Harwell-based SAC helps organisations make use of and benefit from satellite technologies.

It was established in 2013 by Innovate UK (formerly the Technology Strategy Board) as part of a network of emerging technology centres to help drive economic growth.

JASMIN to be twice as capable after upgrade

09 April 2018

While conventional computers take months or weeks to crunch massive environmental science data sets, JASMIN’s 1,700 registered users will be able to get results in just days or hours.

While conventional computers take months or weeks to crunch massive environmental science data sets, JASMIN’s 1,700 registered users will be able to get results in just days or hours.

The UK’s leading environmental science supercomputer is being upgraded to offer double the storage capacity.

JASMIN gives the European climate and Earth-system science communities the ability to access very large sets of environmental data, which are typically too big for them to download to their own computers.

Its 1,700 registered users can then process these data sets very quickly which reduces the time it takes to test new ideas and get results from months or weeks to days or hours.

StorONE’s storage system use algorithms and software rather than hardware. Those behind the company claim this makes the problems of high capacity and high performance “yesterday’s concerns”.

StorONE’s storage system use algorithms and software rather than hardware. Those behind the company claim this makes the problems of high capacity and high performance “yesterday’s concerns”.

A new company that has promised to disrupt the storage market has announced a formidable line-up of industry veterans to guide and accelerate its growth.

StorONE recently launched its TRU (Total Resource Utilization) platform after six years of “deep technical development” and more than 50 patents.
