Appistry Adds Storage To Cloud Platform
Cloud computing application platform Appistry at Cloud Connect unveiled new storage capabilities to its CloudIQ offerings. The launch of Appistry CloudIQ Storage gives VARs and systems integrators a scalable, fault-tolerant and affordable storage option that can be used as a stand-alone or in conjunction with Appistry's CloudIQ Engine to enable Computation Storage, which unifies applications and data by storing data across commodity servers and migrating application processing the machines that contain the relevant data.
CloudIQ Storage is built for petabyte scale and adds the ability to deliver storage to both private and hybrid clouds. The architecture is fully-distributed, meaning there is no single point of failure and Web-scale data sets and loads can be serviced and files can be distributed across multiple machines. The new storage feature from Appistry also allows servers to be used for computation purposes as well as for file storage, as opposed to traditional methods that rely on the transfer of data files over bandwidth-constrained interconnects.
