Open archive and tiered storage system for big data and supercomputing
Cray Tiered Adaptive Storage (TAS), powered by Versity, provides an open, capacity-optimized data management system designed to reduce the cost of managing storage over the long term.
With Cray TAS you can:
Reduce cost and complexity of data management over the lifespan of data
Stay open: built on open systems, Linux® and open formats to sustain long-term data preservation and access initiatives
Start small and scale capacity non-disruptively, ensuring data is always available and accessible
Leverage your choice of best-in-class technology for pre-validated tape systems from Oracle and Spectra Logic
Cray TAS includes everything needed for migrating, delivering and sustaining archives now and into the future.
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.
