Sgi infinite storage gateway


Published on

SGI InfiniteStorage Gateway is a purpose built appliance for enterprise data centers struggling with high costs and difficulties resulting from exponential data growth.

SGI InfiniteStorage Gateway reduces the dependency on high-cost primary storage by creating a virtualized storage fabric that can include any mixture of disk, tape, Zero-Watt Disk or MAID, and object storage. While appearing to users and applications simply as online data, SGI InfiniteStorage Gateway offers IT administrators the ability to keep data protected and online at a fraction of the cost of primary storage systems.

The system automatically places data on any or all storage devices and locations based upon what works best for the access requirements and data protection policies.

By seamlessly connecting to existing heterogeneous storage environments, SGI InfiniteStorage Gateway provides a way for users to see and access all the data all the time, no matter what might be happening to the storage infrastructure in the background. Because the storage infrastructure is virtualized, as requirements change, the type of storage deployed can also evolve, with no interruption to users.

SGI InfiniteStorage Gateway includes up to 276TB of onboard capacity in a single 4U appliance. As that local capacity begins to fill, data is virtualized with any of multiple different storage choices to enable the entire storage fabric to scale to massive proportions.

SGI InfiniteStorage Gateway bundles into an easy-to-deploy appliance SGI® DMF™ technology, the tiered virtualization software SGI has deployed in hundreds of customers worldwide in some of the industry’s most demanding data management environments.
