Case Study: Avere

“Equinix and Google Cloud Platform are two important pieces of the enterprise infrastructure used by our customers. Equinix Cloud Exchange and the Avere FXT Edge filer were proven toprovide the high-bandwidth connectivity and edge caching needed to run high-performance applications like rendering, genomic analysis, and financial simulations in Equinix data centers or on customer premises while storing the data in Google Cloud Storage.”



Executive Overview
Cloud providers offer a very competitive value in data storage, but accessing that data at speed can prove challenging. Avere’s FXT Edge filer, used in conjunction with the Equinix Cloud Exchange™ (ECX®), allows clients to connect to cloud storage at local file server speeds. Tests show that with this architecture, the clients can access storage in Google Cloud Platform with a constant throughput rate of 800MBps.
