Hammerspace Global Data Environment
Hammerspace, a developer of global file system technology to universally deliver software-defined storage services for data on any infrastructure or cloud, in November unveiled its Hammerspace Global Data Environment, a new technology it said enables the creation, processing, storage, protection and access of data stored on any data center or in any cloud. The Los Altos, Calif.-based company said the Global Data Environment aims to help businesses solve issues that have not had easy solutions in the past, such as providing access to unstructured data that is siloed in a data center, or working with data locked into an existing infrastructure. The Global Data Environment works with block, object and file data through all the standard protocols, as well as through platforms such as Snowflake.
