Avere vFXT for Azure
Posted on Thursday, September 6, 2018
The Avere vFXT for Azure provides high-performance file access for HPC applications. It arms applications owners and computing directors tasked with managing critical high-performance computing (HPC) workloads with scalability, flexibility, and easy access to cloud and file-based storage locations. The Avere vFXT for Azure caches active data closest to compute nodes in Azure, initially reading data from its home in on-premises network-attached storage (NAS) or Azure Blob and hides latency between the storage and Azure Compute. Easy to install and easy to use, you can burst applications to the Azure on-demand, process, and return these workloads to your on-prem environment with minimal management and set-up. Avere vFXTs support scaling of thousands of cores to meet fluctuating compute demand without overprovisioning on-prem data center environments.
