Delivering the possibilities of data, Western Digital today introduced a new entry-level storage system focused on addressing cloud-scale challenges. The new plug-and-play object storage system, the ActiveScale P100 system is the company’s latest integrated storage system, which disrupts the economics of scaling capacity into petabytes, and enables the creation of massive data storage repositories across both on-premise and hosted cloud architectures.
The ActiveScale P100 is an economic entry-level configuration that scales from 720TB to 19PB of raw capacity. It’s an extensible, fully integrated architecture that utilizes a standard Amazon S3 interface for object storage.
Included in the ActiveScale P100, and available today for current HGST Active Archive System customers, is ActiveScale CM (cloud management), a new cloud-based system monitoring tool that allows customers to manage their systems. It is provided at no additional cost. ActiveScale CM provides remote system health monitoring and predictive capacity and performance analytics to proactively manage the storage and access to petabyte-scale data, subsequently reducing IT and administrative costs.
List pricing for the ActiveScale P100 system starts at $0.22 per gigabyte and is available for immediate order.
