Webinar Announcement: Learn about Object Storage with The HDF Group and partners OpenIO

Dear HDF Community,

Please join The HDF Group, and our partners at OpenIO to discuss recent developments in object storage made by the teams at both organizations.

During these uncertain times, a number of organizations are looking at ways to tighten their belts through optimizing their IT infrastructure. Storage is one area where large gains can be made by moving from appliance-based file systems or NAS structures, to software-defined, hardware-agnostic object storage.

John Readey, senior architect at The HDF Group recently worked with OpenIO to integrate the Highly Scalable Data Service (HSDS) with OpenIO’s storage. (You can read more about this integration here.) John will be presenting, along with Guillaume Delaporte, Co-founder and VP Pre-Sales at OpenIO, to discuss the technical and business implications of moving to object storage.

Please join us for this live webinar, scheduled for April 30th, 11:00 a.m. Central time. We hope to see you there!

Many organizations have petabytes of HDF5 data stored on premise NAS systems, and while object storage systems are generally more cost effective than NAS, applications written on POSIX storage won’t “just work” with object storage.

The HDF Group has taken the pain and expense out of this problem by developing open source libraries and services to enable HDF5 applications to transparently use object storage (on prem or in the cloud)—no modifications needed.

Last summer, we partnered with OpenIO to add our Highly Scalable Data Service (HSDS) on top of their flexible object storage solution. We are continuing that partnership with a joint webinar on object storage tomorrow, on Thursday, April 30th at 11:00 a.m.

You know as well as we do that workplaces physically look different these days, and the fiscal outlook for many companies may look different as well. Making changes in data storage may be one way to save money for your organization. You can read about OpenIO’s take on these changes in their blog post, Preparing for the aftermath: liberate your data!
