St. Albans, United Kingdom (14th November 2016) - Boston are pleased to announce their showcased products at Computing Insight UK, an annual conference showcasing high performance computing, big data analytics and cognitive technologies.
Boston Igloo Plus - 'Ice'
In partnership with AccelStor, the software-defined all-flash array provider, Boston brings to the market their Supermicro® based, all-flash appliance; the Igloo Plus Ice. The Boston Igloo Plus Ice is a high-availability, 2U rack-mount storage solution featuring 600K sustained IOPS of performance with 5.8TB usable storage capacity and high-speed, 10GbE connectivity. Utilising AccelStor's FlexiRemap® flash-management software technology, the compact, high-value 2U flash appliance saves rack space by packing two controllers into a single chassis, and provides outstanding I/O performance without costly proprietary hardware. The Igloo Plus's high-throughput node replication, allows the full performance of all-flash acceleration to be realised, even with high availability.
The Boston Limited's Lustre* SFF appliance is the latest addition to Boston's Lustre* based parallel file system portfolio and provides a lower cost / capacity entry point for Lustre* storage systems. Traditional Lustre* solutions on the market are focused on addressing the high-end cluster users, while the Boston Lustre* SFF is designed for small or mid-sized clusters with capacities as low as 18TB (and scaling to 720TB). This solution provides a high performance alternative to standard NFS and provides customers with the option to scale and grow as the cluster and user demands increase over time.
David Power, Head of HPC, Boston Limited says: "We are pleased to be presenting two of our leading storage appliances to Computing Insight this year. Having been given a warm reception at Super Computing in November we wanted to take the opportunity to showcase them in the UK where Boston Ltd is headquartered. Both of these solutions have been designed to meet the demand of our customers and fill apparent gaps in the market."
David Power will be presenting a performance analysis of the Boston IEEL Lustre SFF solution in the CIUK Exhibitor Forum at 15:30 today (14th December).
