Case Study: Avere

Case Study: Avere
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.
The Avere Solution
Avere’s customers include a large number of media and entertainment, life sciences and financial services companies. These industries face an ever-increasing demand for vast quantities of storage and compute resources, which is why the cloud is becoming so important. Cloud computing provides enterprises the flexibility to move compute workloads and large data sets to a highly scalable and reliable cloud infrastructure. The Avere hybrid cloud solution creates the flexibility and agility needed to integrate existing NAS (network-attached storage) solutions to the Google Cloud Platform – offering remarkably high throughput storage performance and low latency.
