Seagate Technology unveiled its internally developed Seagate Kinetic Open Storage platform.
A significant leap forward in scale-out storage architectures, the Seagate Kinetic Open Storage platform simplifies data management, improves performance and scalability while lowering total cost of ownership (TCO) of average Cloud infrastructures by up to 50 percent.
The Seagate Kinetic Open Storage platform eliminates the storage server tier of traditional data center architectures by enabling applications to speak directly to the storage device, thereby reducing expenses associated with the acquisition, deployment, and support of hyperscale storage infrastructures.
Companies can realize additional cost savings while maximizing storage density through reduced power and cooling costs, and receiving potentially dramatic savings in cloud data center build outs.
The platform leverages Seagate’s expertise in hardware and software storage systems to integrate a new key/value API – which will be open sourced - and Ethernet connected with Seagate hard drive technology.
Designed for rapid implementation and deployment in any cloud storage software stack, this technology can be deployed across a portfolio of storage devices enabling system builders and software developers to design new solutions that will deliver against a full array of cloud data center use cases.
