Racklive Announces Strategic Partnership with Storiant to Develop and Optimize Fully Integrated, "Ready-to-Roll" Rack-Level Solutions

Extends public cloud economics to private cloud/enterprise consumers

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – Today at the SC14 Conference, Racklive and Storiant announced a strategic partnership to develop and optimize fully integrated, "ready-to-roll" rack-level storage solutions, extending public cloud economics to private cloud/enterprise consumers.

The joint commitment will provide scale-out storage solutions offering distinctive density -- up to 768 large-capacity storage drives with greater than 3 Petabytes usable -- per rack column.  In addition, the solution will provide industry leading power efficiency by leveraging active disk power governor technology -- thereby, only powering-on the number of disks needed to meet immediate consumer demands.

"The Storiant and Racklive partnership provides distinctive benefits for a broad customer base.  Storiant's expert team has formulated a highly configurable, innovative platform.  Racklive is proud our custom engineering and deployment expertise can play a foundational role in maximizing the value of such a solution," said Joel Wineland, CTO, Racklive.

As part of the partnership, Racklive is providing manufacturing, integration and configuration expertise to bring solutions to market, supporting up to 768 3.5" large-capacity storage drives per rack enclosure. This expertise will aid archival, analytics and scale-out object storage solutions.

Additional innovative features including Racklive's custom engineered extreme rack enclosures, in-rack distributed DC power shelves, 4U 96 drive JBOD, and vibration mitigating, tool-less disk carriers round out the solution -- further reducing costs and maximizing density while effectively minimizing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

Racklive's solution architects and Storiant's engineers optimize cabinet-level solutions for diverse application demands.  Storiant's advanced monitoring, diverse software interfaces, and compliance features provide TCO economics that rival traditional tape, while providing ready-access to the data that's the lifeblood of today's business.

Stop by the Racklive booth (#959) at SC14 for a demonstration of the Storiant platform in action, and learn how Racklive and Storiant's data management solutions keep critical data close at hand -- at less than half the cost of competitive platforms.
