Cleversafe expands hardware options with HP

Cleversafe has certified the HP ProLiant SL4540 Generation 8 (Gen8) server as a Slicestor® appliance. Cleversafe has also certified the Dispersed Storage Network (dsNet®) Manager and Accesser® on the HP ProLiant DL360p Gen8 server.

Cleversafe's dsNet technology with HP servers simplifies the management of large scale data repositories and provides the availability and reliability required to handle customers' most critical digital assets. The combined platform delivers a validated turnkey solution that is easily installed and optimized for Web-scale storage, substantially reducing cost in time and resources to put a solution into service. The integrated dsNet Manager and Accesser solutions for HP servers also simplify system deployment and configuration while expediting the integration of applications and workloads with object storage.

"Enterprises are struggling to manage the data explosion generated by cloud, mobile and social - as well as the growth of unstructured data - in a cost effective, secure manner," said Yogi Barman, Director of Strategic Alliances, HP Servers. "The HP ProLiant SL4540 and DL360p Gen8 servers combined ith Cleversafe's dsNet object-based storage technology enables clients to address their growing data challenges with a highly reliable solution that can easily scale out to meet Petabyte-scale data demand without impacting performance."

Cleversafe enhances software capabilities with new ClevOS 3.2

Cleversafe's latest software release, ClevOS 3.2, enhances the flexibility and capabilities of the dsNet system to ensure customers' object-based storage implementations are able to meet their unique business needs.

ClevOS 3.2 adds the ability for a customer's preferred monitoring application to access the dsNet statistics used by Cleversafe's dsNet Manager, via SNMP or a RESTful http interface. ClevOS 3.2 also integrates with syslog, the industry standard for computer message logging, providing businesses with greater flexibility around system monitoring. To help customers who have an IT policy that requires the separation of network traffic related to different functions, ClevOS 3.2 provides a network traffic management capability that allows traffic for each dsNet appliance to be routed on up to three separate networks.

In addition to expanded system monitoring and management capabilities, ClevOS 3.2 expands upon existing support for Active Directory by adding support for LDAP directory services. With more options for integrated directory services, ClevOS 3.2 simplifies the user authentication process on both the dsNet Manager and dsNet vaults containing customer data.

Cleversafe simplifies cloud integration with industry standard interfaces

With ClevOS 3.2, Cleversafe has added an OpenStack Swift (News - Alert) compatible API to its list of supported APIs, which also includes Amazon S3, HDFS and a Cleversafe specific Simple Object API. Support for OpenStack Swift, S3 and HDFS increases compatibility with existing storage applications and allows customers developing their own storage application the option of using the object API that meets their specific business requirements.
