This week, E8 Storage will be joining our strategic partner Mellanox at SCAsia 2019, taking place at the Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre, March 11-14, in booth #29. One of the most well-attended and highly respected technology events in the region, the annual conference focuses on education and promotion of the high performance computing (HPC) ecosystem in Asia.  As we planned for this upcoming event, it got me thinking about how much the industry has changed, and continues to change, since E8 Storage’s founding.

It would be tough to argue that high performance storage has never been more business critical than it is today. From high frequency trading, to computer-aided design, to deep learning, to personalized medicine, and the list goes on – regardless of vertical application, HPC is being used to address very specific goals that would be otherwise virtually unattainable. And by the way, without high performance storage, today’s HPC would look very different. Today, we are innovating our storage appliances and software to support what some would say is still the unimaginable.

E8 Storage appliances provide up to 10 times the performance of other all-flash-arrays, with low latency.  Moreover, E8 Storage is designed for high availability, with no single point-of-failure across the hardware architecture, while the software architecture provides an additional layer of resiliency through the host-side E8 Agents. With simple connectivity via Ethernet or InfiniBand, new appliances can be added to the network seamlessly and new storage capacity provisioned to host servers without impacting host availability. E8 Agents can access storage volumes from multiple E8 Storage appliances, enabling capacity scaling into the petabyte range. E8 Storage is designed to be easy to deploy and manage for any enterprise data center. With an easy to use and intuitive management interface, E8 Storage delivers simple, centralized storage management for high performance storage.

We hope to see you at SCAsia 2019, but if you are not attending, don’t worry – we’ll be coming soon to a location near you (E8 Storage Events: https://e8storage.com/events/).  Hate to leave your desk?  Not a problem!  We can discuss you storage requirements and show you what E8 Storage can do for you (E8 Storage demo requests: https://e8storage.com/e8-demo/).
