Boston introduces disruptive technology to Cloud Expo UK

Posted on 13 March 2017

Boston is pleased to showcase its suite of cloud solutions at this years Cloud Expo Europe (UK)

Cloud Expo is an annual conference showcasing emerging disruptive cloud technologies. Boston’s stand (420) will feature a vast range of solutions from application specific cloud, elastic block storage, deep learning in the cloud, and all-flash storage solutions. Come and visit our space themed stand to understand the fastest solutions in time and space!

Joining us on the booth will be our cloud partners vScaler. vScaler is a high-performance cloud platform that offers a hybrid approach towards cloud computing. This hybrid approach allows for private cloud adoption as well as access to a public resource when demand dictates. Powered by OpenStack, vScaler, can deploy your on-premise private cloud in minutes, add cloud-based services or applications, and scale to public or hybrid cloud environments on-demand - all under a single management portal. vScaler also provides additional capabilities to deploy HPC, Deep Learning and Big Data environments in a matter of minutes.

Boston are pleased to partner, for the first time, with Datera to introduce the Boston Igloo EBS (Elastic Block Storage). Powered by Datera Elastic Data Fabric software, the Boston Igloo EBS utilises next-generation “public-cloud”-like elastic block storage that is deployable within enterprises and service providers on Boston optimised hardware. The Boston Igloo EBS takes datacenter automation and efficiency to a whole new level, delivering cloud operations at transformational speed, agility and economics.

Our storage experts will be on-hand to discuss how the Boston Igloo EBS is designed to deliver intent-based multi-tenant aware storage with the ability to automate to scale through application awareness. This distributed system is completely self-aware, self-adaptive, and self-optimizing making it an autonomic organism adapting to changes in the underlying infrastructure as well as any scale/changes in workloads.

In partnership with AccelStor, the software-defined all-flash array provider, Boston brings to the market its Supermicro® based, all-flash appliance; the Igloo Plus Ice. The Boston Igloo Plus Ice is a high-availability, 2U rack-mount storage solution featuring 600K sustained IOPS of performance with 5.8TB usable storage capacity and high-speed, 10GbE connectivity. Utilising AccelStor's FlexiRemap® flash-management software technology, the compact, high-value 2U flash appliance saves rack space by packing two controllers into a single chassis, and provides outstanding I/O performance without costly proprietary hardware. The Igloo Plus's high-throughput node replication, allows the full performance of all-flash acceleration to be realised, even with high availability.

Boston’s  vast range of Intel® Solid State Drive (SSD) based solutions with Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) are further accelerating cloud technology. High-performance SSDs with NVMe, shrink your data center footprint and declutter your infrastructure, reducing costs and enabling efficiencies via software-defined infrastructure—all while tackling your most data-intensive workloads. Intel SSD’s with NVMe outperform SATA SSDs, and promise increased system utilization for greater responsiveness and faster time to market, Boston’s range of Solutions with Intel® Data Centre NVMe SSDs, are currently shipped with free Intel® Cache Acceleration Software. 

Manoj Nayee, Managing Director, Boston Limited says:

“We are pleased to be presenting leading cloud appliances and software this year at Cloud Expo. As regular attendees of the show Boston have become renowned for showcasing the latest technology available and this year is no exception. Several solutions are being introduced for the first time in the UK, where Boston Limited is headquartered. Each solution has been designed to meet the demand of our customers and fill apparent gaps in the market.”
