SageCloud And Avnet’s Rorke Global Solutions Sign OEM Agreement

SageCloudTM, Inc., a leader in ultra-reliable storage systems at disruptive price points for archival, backup and big data, and Rorke Global Solutions™ a business unit of Avnet Embedded, a division of Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas, a business region of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), today announced a strategic relationship to jointly bring to market new, petabyte-scale storage solutions for cold data. Rorke Global Solutions will deliver these storage system solutions, which integrate SageCloud’s powerful system software with open standards-based hardware and complimentary support services to custom-tailor solutions for specific data center environments.

Click to Tweet: Rorke Global Solutions and @SageCloudBoston team to deliver cold data storage solutions

Data storage is growing at 60 percent per year and consuming an increasing portion of constrained IT budgets. Industry experts believe that as much as 80 percent of that data qualifies as cold data - data that does not require active storage because it is written once and accessed infrequently. Large data consumers and industry groups, like the Open Compute Project (OCP), are promoting energy-efficient, open standards computing and hardware approaches that lower costs, reduce energy consumption and support scalability of cold data storage.

Rorke Global Solutions (RGS), together with SageCloud, will leverage OCP, field-tested open source software and open hardware standards to deliver a highly reliable cold data storage system - on disk - that approaches the cost of storage on tape. The combined solution will be offered as an on-premise solution for IT storage professionals who are operating their own data centers or for ISP's seeking to improve the cost efficiencies of their cold storage service offerings.

The solution is specifically designed for market segments that generate greater than one petabyte of cold data, and that require backup, archiving and easy scale-out of their environments. Target groups include financial services, media and entertainment, and healthcare firms.
