A vital leap forward in scale-out object storage architecture announced by Seagate.
The Seagate® Kinetic Open Storage platform is the first device-based storage platform enabling independent software vendors (ISV) and cloud service provider (CSP), and enterprise customers to optimize scale-out file and object-based storage, delivering lower TCO. Seagate Kinetic Storage comprises storage devices + key/value API + Ethernet connectivity.
The Seagate Kinetic Open Storage platform includes a set of developer tools that help simplify storage architectures by enabling applications to talk directly to the storage device.
The Seagate Kinetic Open Storage platform delivers higher performance and capacity, along with improved rack density, by allowing more flexibility than traditional storage server architectures.
The Seagate Kinetic Open Storage platform helps streamline storage architectures by eliminating an entire storage server tier, thus lowering both data center capital and operational expenses.
