Concurrent (NASDAQ: CCUR), a global provider of high-performance Linux ® and storage solutions, today announced the launch of a new software-defined storage solution designed for capacity hungry, throughput intensive applications. The company is targeting the broader storage market with an open-source Ceph ®-based object storage solution that supports the more demanding performance requirements of mission-critical applications.

"Concurrent serves industries and customers that demand uncompromising performance, reliability, and flexibility," said Derek Elder, President and CEO of Concurrent. "With our core Linux and storage expertise, we have developed a no-compromise software-defined storage architecture that satisfies the mission-critical performance requirements of a wide range of markets. With several large customers already signed up to deploy our new object storage solution, we are off to a great start and we look forward to continued progress as we approach the broader market."

With modular scaling, open hardware integration, on-the-fly capacity upgrades, and self-healing capabilities, Concurrent's storage platform delivers the flexibility and features required to satisfy the most advanced applications. Support is included for the latest disk drive and solid state storage technologies to enable ultra-high density configurations and scalable storage complexes reaching exabyte capacity levels. The system also includes an intuitive system dashboard and support for industry standard open interfaces such as OpenStack ® Swift, Amazon S3™, HTTP, and FTP for easier installation, integration, and maintenance.

Concurrent's object storage solution is powered by Concurrent's open source, real-time Linux operating system, RedHawk™. RedHawk offers numerous advantages over standard enterprise Linux distributions, including extremely low-latency operation, advanced tuning capabilities, and real-time determinism for guaranteed results. RedHawk and its associated optimization tools improve application performance by unleashing the untapped potential of commercial x86-based hardware platforms.

By combining high performance, simplified scaling, and advanced resiliency features into one very capable software platform, Concurrent offers a unique solution alternative to proprietary storage solutions. The company is targeting opportunities in a diverse array of markets, including the service provider, media and entertainment, aerospace and defense, automotive, financial, healthcare, manufacturing, and energy markets.

Concurrent's software-defined object storage solution is currently available and shipping to customers.  The company will be demonstrating its storage products at INTX 2015, May 5-7 th in Chicago.
