Flash storage solutions vendor, SanDisk, has announced the availability of ZetaScale software, enabling application developers to scale their applications by taking full advantage of the high performance capabilities of flash technology.
The performance of some analytics tools such as NoSQL databases has struggled to deliver insights in the turnaround time demanded by today’s business environments. SanDisk’s new ZetaScale software would enable application developers to scale their applications by taking full advantage of the high performance capabilities of flash technology.
ZetaScale software enables rapid development of analytics applications, such as NoSQL databases and in-memory computing environments that take full advantage of the performance and lower cost of flash storage.
By combining ZetaScale software, SSDs, and NoSQL or in-memory computing applications, customers would be able to analyze larger datasets at near-DRAM speeds for a significantly lower cost and at higher data densities per server node. This opens up new opportunities and accelerates the performance of big data and real-time analytics applications in enterprise data centers.
“Flash technology can deliver astonishing performance gains for enterprise and cloud applications without forcing customers to make any other changes to their existing data center environments,” said John Scaramuzzo, senior vice president and general manager, Enterprise Storage Solutions at SanDisk. “However, many of today’s analytics, database and in-memory compute applications haven’t yet been optimized for flash storage. ZetaScale represents a major step forward in our vision of the flash-transformed data center – empowering software developers to scale and enhance their applications to meet today’s big data and real-time analytics demands, while lowering TCO.”
A ZetaScale software development kit (SDK) containing the software library and APIs needed to optimize NoSQL and in-memory computing applications for flash storage, is available now on negotiated terms to qualified developers.
