Amplidata: Object Storage For Big Data
Amplidata, which develops object storage systems for managing big data, wants to provide customers the opportunity to access hundreds of petabytes of data at half the cost of RAID-based storage, said Mike Wall, CEO of the Lochristi, Belgium-based company.
The AmpliStor Object Storage system is built on a scale-out commodity-based platform. Its BitSpread erasure coding software, similar to the erasure code used by companies like Amazon and Google, provides failure-tolerant storage, Wall said.
Amplidata is looking to license its technology to companies that want to compete with cloud providers, he said.
