In an ambitious bid to empower enterprises with the highest storage agility, AGILESTORAGE has developed the first real storage hypervisor platform—workload agnostic storage platform (WASP)—to help enterprises achieve agility through flexible, scalable, efficient, and sustainable storage infrastructures for their data over the cloud. WASP—fortified with containerized multitenant virtual storage management (VSM) architecture—enables a giant leap toward agility and allows its clients to choose their preferred cloud storage provider—on-premise or hybrid cloud—that aligns with their data storage strategy. AGILESTORAGE has embedded flexibility into the DNA of WASP to empower enterprises of any size with superior storage agility to accelerate digital transformation and embrace the future of cloud data storage. “We refine the way data is being stored to increase the utilization and performance numbers for our clients with guaranteed storage performance down at the application level,” states Zihlmann.
Besides delivering optimal storage performance, WASP is based on data-centric storage architecture that delivers the simplicity of storage while surpassing cost efficiency. WASP’s centralized management framework allows clients to effortlessly create VSM with a comprehensive web-based graphical user interface (GUI), and transparent VSM migration.
That being said, AGILESTORAGE diligently tailors its storage platform to a spectrum of clients’ storage and network infrastructure needs and improves their business integrity. The robustness of the company’s solution was on full display when the University of Bern approached AGILESTORAGE to enhance their microscopic imaging of tissue samples. The university’s microscopes produced 2000 images per minute at a resolution of 2048x2048 and needed a 40x zooming feature to study the tissues closely in each of the images. However, each microscope required large data streams to facilitate a 40x zooming capability. In response to this requirement, AGILESTORAGE constructed an environment where the data streams from the camera of a microscope were automatically stored within high-performance SSD, and then copied to another source. This was achieved with a relatively small configuration of 750-850 Mbps, and the university was able to scale up to 40-50 microscopes simultaneously with its existing data storage infrastructure. “We fit our solution into the clients’ ecosystems, thus eliminating the need to modify their existing infrastructures or alter their operations,” adds Zihlmann.
With similar stories highlighting its competency, AGILESTORAGE is all set to launch new functionalities and the latest release of its WASP operating system to help users harness the full potential of this containerized storage platform. The company has developed a centralized management interface that accommodates multiple physical deployments of the platform across the globe, all on a single pane. This interactive management framework bolstered by a delegated administration concept offers service providers and enterprises and their subsidiaries a holistic worldwide view of distributed storage deployments. In a nutshell, AGILESTORAGE is revolutionizing storage infrastructures with effortless management of workloads through the cloud with cutting-edge data protection.
