Basho and Seagate Partner to Deliver Scale-Out Cloud Storage Breakthrough

CAMBRIDGE, MA — (Marketwired) — 10/22/13 — Basho, an expert in distributed systems and cloud storage software, announced today that it has partnered with Seagate Technology (NASDAQ: STX) to help significantly advance the economics and performance potential of cloud architectures. For the past six months, Basho has worked with Seagate on its development of its , providing interoperability and testing with , Basho-s distributed NoSQL database.

The Seagate Kinetic Open Storage platform eliminates the storage server tier of traditional data center architectures by enabling applications to speak directly to the storage system, thereby reducing expenses associated with the acquisition, deployment, and support of hyper scale storage infrastructures. The platform leverages Seagate-s expertise in hardware and software storage systems integrating an open source API and Ethernet connectivity with Seagate hard drive technology.

Basho developed Riak to offer businesses a highly-available, fault-tolerant, distributed database ensuring ultra-low-latency performance that is simple-to-operate — at any scale. Today, Riak is used by thousands of companies including over 30 percent of the Fortune 50. Basho-s partnership with Seagate aimed to continue to improve on these ambitions and customers deploying Riak on the Seagate Kinetic Open Storage platform will see the following benefits:

An increase in I/O efficiency by removing bottlenecks and optimizing cluster management, data replication, migration, and active multi-data center performance

An improvement in customer Total Cost of Operations (TCO) by up to 50 percent through simplified operations

An additional cost savings by maximizing storage density through reduced power and cooling costs, and receiving potentially dramatic savings in cloud data center build outs

To assist with developers seeking to test the Seagate Kinetic Open Storage platform, Basho is making available an enabling an Erlang-based high-performance socket connection to the drive. Basho is also providing software that maps a Riak backend to the drive library. Both the eKinetic driver and Riak backend compatibility are available as alpha version software.

“Seagate is bringing device based innovation to the scale out cloud market in a new and open way,” said Ali Fenn, Senior Director of Advanced Storage at Seagate Technology. “This is a fundamentally new architecture — integrating an open source key/ value API and Ethernet connectivity into devices — that represents a vital leap forward in decreasing cloud architecture TCO while improving performance. We are very excited to work with Basho, a leader in distributed object storage software, to bring complete solutions to customers.”

“Basho-s distributed database relies on key/value stores directly attached to servers,” commented Jon Meredith, Senior Vice President of Engineering at Basho. “Seagate-s kinetic drive simplifies the management of key/value store, file system, logical volume manager, RAID controllers and actual devices by replacing them with a simple socket-based network interface. Freeing drives from server chassis enables independent scaling of capacity and throughput of a cloud architecture. We look forward to continuing to work with Seagate to offer customers significant performance and cost benefits when combining Riak on kinetic drive technology.”

James Hughes, Principal Technologist from Seagate, will be speaking at Basho-s distributed systems conference held in San Francisco October 29-30. His session is entitled Device Based Innovation to Enable Scale Out Storage. Seagate is a sponsor of RICON.
