There is much to like about cloud storage, but even as the pace of cloud storage growth continues to accelerate (especially hybrid cloud), one of the most common hurdles we see is the potential disruption of business workflows during the transition away from file-based applications and the migration off of NAS-based storage architectures. Without a […]
A Blueprint: Multi-Region, Multi-Cloud, Metadata-Searchable Storage Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology. A top-10 global pharmaceutical. Counsyl. Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation. Ploid. University of Virginia. Georgia Tech. SURFsara. And more. These companies and institutions—ranging from leading pharmaceuticals to globally recognized not-for-profit researchers and myriad organizations providing specific services to the industry—have been […]
Since I joined SwiftStack almost five years ago, my team and I have been working tirelessly to identify, verify, document, and demonstrate software applications that have been created or modernized to work with private and public cloud storage platforms like SwiftStack via Amazon’s popular S3 API or the open-standard OpenStack Swift API. Some of the […]
Metadata Life Cycle Organizations of today can easily generate and persist large amounts of data, but this does not come without a challenge: The question, “How can we store all of this data?” has been replaced with, “How can we derive value from all of this data?” Without a logical way to locate something or […]
It’s been almost three years since news first broke of SwiftStack and Vizrt’s partnership around the goal to modernize the storage side of common media workflows and almost 18 months since we first demonstrated the fruits of that initial labor together. As Vizrt’s then-Chief Commercial Officer said, “Beyond basic toolset integration, we see strategic collaborative […]
At NAB 2017, SwiftStack made a splash with its Cisco partnership showcasing what is possible with SwiftStack Multi-Cloud Data Management software—especially when coupled with an intelligent Media Asset Manager (like Vizrt’s Viz One) to orchestrate complex workflows and organize assets in SwiftStack and elsewhere. One of the art-of-the-possible concepts we showed last year was how […]
Since joining SwiftStack over three years ago, I’ve had the privilege of leading a variety of efforts toward integrating SwiftStack software into specific customer and industry workflows; we call those “Solutions,” and you can read about them at swiftstack.com/all-solutions. (Stay tuned in the month to come as we roll out several more across a couple […]
Right now, at NAB 2017, we’re demonstrating an example media workflow in the Cisco booth using SwiftStack software and Cisco UCS servers. For those who are unable to make it to the show and are interested in seeing the demo, check out this video we produced that highlights some of the ways SwiftStack private and hybrid […]
Introduction I recently had an opportunity to speak at HIMMS17—the conference “where the brightest minds in health and IT meet.” According to the session abstract, my job was to share case studies for integrating object storage and leveraging metadata to advance the state of the art in genomics research. I thought it might be useful […]
Cyberduck is one kickass super hero.
Well—not a real superhero. While it can’t fly or scale tall buildings, Cyberduck is heroic in its own right as the latest application to integrate with SwiftStack’s comprehensive object storage solution. By providing a pre-built Cyberduck profile for use with SwiftStack storage, we’re taking one more step to making sharing files simple and easy.
