Nyriad Will Showcase Its UltraIO Data Storage System That Helps Organizations Enhance Agility, Accelerate Innovation and Gain Competitive Advantage

Nyriad announced today that Field CTO Adam Roberts will present at Storage Technology Showcase (STS) and discuss how organizations can achieve exceptional performance and stability with erasure codes on a combined CPU/GPU design. Nyriad will also showcase UltraIO, the company’s data storage system that helps organizations enhance agility, accelerate innovation, and gain the competitive advantage necessary to achieve business growth and success.

Today’s data-driven organizations must process massive amounts of data to reengineer operations, accelerate innovation and implement more efficient service delivery models. These organizations rely on computing performance to help drive their success with greater agility, reliability, and efficiency. However, traditional RAID implementations for block storage pose performance issues and failure domain problems that can lead to serious risks.

Nyriad offers a new approach that implements erasure codes on a combined CPU/GPU architecture with intelligent data placement, enabling true performance and resilience in the same solution. A properly designed combined CPU and GPU architecture, leveraging block-level erasure codes, provides stable performance even after numerous drive failures, retaining performance similar to an optimized array. Block-based erasure codes can be implemented in such a way that the storage system will experience less than a 5% performance degradation to the array, even when as many as 20 drives out of a 204-drive array have been marked as failed.

“With a CPU/GPU-driven erasure code-based array, organizations can intelligently manage massive amounts of data with a single platform that drives exceptional performance, resiliency, and efficiency,” Roberts said. “I look forward to sharing this new approach with attendees and how it can provide organizations with increased performance and resiliency to enhance business agility and help them gain competitive advantage.”

Storage Technology Showcase is a vendor-neutral symposium for high-volume digital and long-term storage engineers and executives. STS addresses the current and future challenges of fast-moving storage technologies. Attendees and participating solution providers represent thought leadership from around the world, with installations of 100s of petabytes of local cloud or on-premise storage.

Event details

  • Storage Technology Showcase will be held March 13-15 at the Marriott University Park in Tucson, Arizona
  • Roberts’ presentation will take place on Wednesday, March 15, at 11 a.m. pacific time
  • Attendees may stop by and visit Nyriad’s station at the Marriott
