Quobyte and Rausch Netzwerktechnik Deliver Joint Solution for Full-Featured Data Center Storage

PRESS RELEASE
June 20, 2016

BERLIN/ETTLINGEN Germany, June 20, 2016 – Quobyte, developer of the world’s most advanced data center file system, today announced its partnership with Germany’s leading server and storage systems specialist Rausch Netzwerktechnik. Combining high-performance software storage with powerful storage hardware, the two companies respond to today’s rapid data growth and the increasing demand for safe, cost-efficient, and fast storage solutions for all enterprise workloads. From June 20 to 22 Quobyte and Rausch will showcase their joint solution at Europe’s biggest HPC event, the ISC High-Performance in Frankfurt/Main.

A first result of the new partnership is the combination of Rausch’s BigFoot® Storage XXLarge with Quobytes data center file system. The BigFoot® Storage XXLarge is a server and storage system with a massive storage capacity and a particularly high packing density, making it extremely powerful. Together with Quobyte’s software-defined storage, that makes for a robust and highly available storage system that scales out and gains performance linearly with every added node. Starting with four servers, the system can easily be extended to hundreds of nodes handling Petabytes of data and beyond. Customers are all set when running their demanding workloads and can rely on Quobyte’s excellent support for OpenStack, container infrastructures, or HPC clusters.

“Quobyte’s simple management and its automation capabilities immediately got me hooked,” says Sebastian Nölting, Rausch’s CEO, “and the software really delivered: hardware can now run at full capacity – which is especially great for those of our customers who deal with huge amounts of data and high request rates.”

“The BigFoot® server and Quobyte’s software together form an accomplished storage solution. Customers get a unified storage system that allows for centralized management, is failsafe, and builds on Rausch’s excellent hardware,” remarks Felix Hupfeld, Quobyte’s CTO.

Starting on June 20, Quobyte and Rausch Netzwerktechnik exhibit at the ISC High-Performance in Frankfurt, Germany, Europes’s most important HPC event of the year. At booth 1,000 the two companies demonstrate the benefits and advantages of their joint soft- and hardware storage solution to customers from all over the world.


Details about the event are as follows:
