Use Cases

ActiveStor intelligently combines high performance SSD and cost-effective SATA storage to deliver a hybrid scale-out NAS appliance that is optimized for mixed workloads, providing high streaming throughput for large files and high IOPS performance for small files. This latest ActiveStor system is ideally suited for big data workloads while remaining an easy to use and manage appliance that installs in under ten minutes.

The dramatically faster metadata and small file performance delivered by ActiveStor is of value across vertical markets and customers.


The energy industry creates value with big data by performing core research, replacing costly physical scientific experimentation with innovative computer simulation. Oil and gas companies leverage data like never before by using techniques such as geophysical simulation or seismic processing to improve exploration of the world's resources for the production of energy. They utilize simulation and modeling technologies to reduce costs and risks, as well as time to results. Energy companies recognize that parallel, high performance scale-out storage is required to use data to make more intelligent business decisions in order to gain competitive advantage.
