Client Media Release
Anaeko, the ‘third platform’ developer and consulting business, has today announced that it will be showcasing its IBM Cloud Object Storage expertise at IBM’s data storage event in London from today.
Anaeko has been an active player in the third platform wave over the last decade, focusing on mobile computing, social media, cloud computing, big data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT).
The IBM Technical University is an opportunity for Anaeko to present the depth of its capabilities in software defined solutions – especially IBM Cloud Object Storage built on the Cleversafe platform. According to leading industry analysts, object storage provides vast scale with reduced complexity and reduced longer term management costs. It’s for this reason that the object storage market has been growing markedly on the back of other IT market segment growth such as cloud computing and application specific data analytics.
According to Colm Hayden, CTO of Anaeko, “The success of 3rd platform technologies including cloud, mobile, social and analytics has resulted in the exponential growth of data storage requirements to IDC’s predicted 44 zettabytes of data by 2020. Software defined storage platforms such as IBM Cloud Object Storage extend the scope of traditional storage hardware which is prohibitively costly and complex to manage at this scale. Over the last number of years Anaeko has enabled the delivery of software-defined storage solutions by integrating Cleversafe’s market leading object storage platform with products from Microsoft, Symantec, Veritas, Gladinet, Citrix, iRODS, Cloudera and Apache.”
He continued, “Anaeko combines deep Cleversafe expertise with world-leading integration skills to develop high performance plugins and validate compatibility with object storage APIs including S3 and OpenStack. We’re keen to hear from other attendees at the Technical University about how we can leverage our unique competency.”
