Cray Tiered Adaptive Storage

Cray Tiered Adaptive Storage (TAS) provides a complete and open archiving solution for Big Data and HPC. Powered by Versity’s open storage virtualization technology, data migration policies enable transparent data movement across up to 4 storage tiers comprised of SSD, disk, and/or tape.
Cray TAS provides a large-scale active archiving solution which is:
  • Complete: All software and hardware comes pre-configured, tested at scale, and deployment-ready.
  • Adaptive: Customers choose optimal and flexible storage configurations utilizing SSD, disk, or tape, in prescribed combinations. 
  • Familiar: Data movement policies (such as Archive, Stage, Release) are easy to administer—and transparent to end-users.
  • Trusted: Data is continuously protected and accessible to users at scale.  A single point of support is provided by Cray for all aspects of the solution.

“Based on open standards, TAS is built to serve large-scale enterprise and HPC data sets with a need for unified data access. As such, it offers one of the most advanced and full-featured tiered storage solutions in the industry.”

—Michael Feldman, Senior Analyst, Intersect360 Research
