Xyratex has unveiled a new product in its ClusterStor range of high-performance computing and big data storage products that are built with multilevel security features and work to manage data storage throughput and data processing functions.
The Seagate subsidiary said Tuesday that the ClusterStor Secure Data Appliance is built to meet the government’s Intelligence Community Directive 503 and Cross-Domain Solution requirements.
Ken Claffey, vice president and general manager for ClusterStor at Xyratex, said customers in the defense and intelligence communities have started to use the product to both share information and comply with security data protection standards.
“Our customers need to know exactly who is doing what on their systems, as well as access to complete and explicit audit trails,” Claffey added.
The product will be available via the company’s reseller partners later this year and is being showcased at the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation’s GEOINT Symposium this week in Tampa, Fla.
Clusterstor contains a modular architecture that is built to transmit data at more than 1 terabyte per second and store up to 25 petabytes of storage inside a single global name space, Xyratex said.
Xyratex also built ClusterStor SDA to manage multiple data types and multiple security classifications in a single file system on a single network.
The subsidiary intends for government users to capture geospatial images through the tool.
