To manage information for content-rich high-scale infrastructures and cloud service provider environments
EMC has launched Atmos 2.0, the next-gen of globally accessible cloud storage platform, which provides efficient management of distributed big data and cloud environments.
The new offering is designed to manage information for content-rich high-scale infrastructures and cloud service provider environments.
The offering’s flexible architecture adapts to run in virtualised environments, or within an EMC purpose-built, high-density hardware system.
The new Atmos 2.0 features include: stores object segments rather than entire objects across distributed storage environments for unmatched protection; provides transparent access to the cloud; and simplifies the integration of applications with a new Atmos Software Development Kit (SDK), with added support for Apple iOS and Centera integrated applications via Centera/XAM.
EMC cloud infrastructure group general manager and senior vice-president Mike Feinberg said the company pioneered cloud optimised storage in 2008 with the introduction of Atmos — a first of its kind to cost-effectively manage massive amounts of data, that is geographically dispersed through a single system.
The company said that Atmos 2.0 and GeoDrive will be available in the second quarter of 2011. The inter-operability API for Amazon S3 customers will be available in beta in the second quarter of 2011.
EMC Cloud Infrastructure Group general manager and senior vice-president Mike Feinberg said EMC pioneered cloud optimised storage in 2008 with the introduction of EMC Atmos through a single system.
Feinberg said, "Today’s announcement is about three things — Atmos product maturation, helping our customers efficiently and cost-effectively manage and protect big data environments, and accelerating an organisation’s ability — whether it’s a service provider or an enterprise — to exploit the benefits of cloud."
