Expedient to Meet Cloud Storage Demand on Intel®-based Platform
Expedient Data Centers plans to move from proprietary storage to a reliable, high-performance, open storage platform based on Intel® Xeon® processors to cost-effectively support growth in enterprise cloud services.
Due to fast-growing demand for Expedient’s cloud services, the company’s storage capacity requirements are more than doubling annually. Expedient needs a high-performance, cost-effective storage platform that can easily scale to support continued growth.
Expedient plans to move from a largely proprietary storage environment to an open storage platform based on Intel Xeon processors, 10 gigabit Intel® Ethernet Converged Network Adapters (Intel® Ethernet CNAs), and Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI). Expedient anticipates that the additional performance and efficiency of Intel®-based storage will support continued demand growth while reducing storage total cost of ownership (TCO) by 50 percent and enabling emerging usages, such as big data analytics.
