Accelerating Discovery in Supercomputing Environments by Centralizing Multi-Cloud Data Management

By Matt Starr
Chief Technology Officer, Spectra Logic

As supercomputing data sources become increasingly distributed, centralizing the management of data that may span multiple data centers, public cloud providers, and edge locations is key to accelerating research. Whether organizations are looking to expand information sharing for science teams, enhance data management practices across multiple clouds, or unlock data to be used in machine learning (ML) or artificial intelligence (AI) workloads, multi-cloud data management addresses these challenges by seamlessly integrating multiple public clouds and on-premises object storage under a single namespace – allowing work to flow from on-prem to cloud and back again.

Achieving Instant Access, Sharing and Archiving of Media by Integrating On-Prem and Cloud Services

Media and Entertainment workflows have been under tremendous pressure to offer instant accessing, sharing and archiving of media. As organizations are pushed even further into the cloud, new workflows must support a hybrid cloud data management model that unifies and simplifies content access and storage across on-premises and cloud using a single global namespace, seamlessly and without disruption. Doing so integrates public cloud services into a workflow with easy digital data movement capability, allowing M & E organizations to leverage existing on-premises applications and native cloud services, regardless of where the data is physically stored.
