Penguin Releases Accelion Managed Data
Access Platform |
July 16, 2018
Accelion managed data access platform is a complete managed file
transfer and remote access solution that gives global, cross-functional
teams the ability to work with vast amounts of geographically dispersed
data and do so with greater speed, security, reliability and
accessibility while unifying operations and accelerating collaboration.
The Accelion managed data access platform
was expertly engineered to meet the needs of global teams in the Media &
Entertainment, Life Sciences, Financial Services, Government, Energy,
Manufacturing and Oil & Gas industries. The solution is ideal for
distributed teams who face pressure to speed time-to-insight,
time-to-decision, and eliminate potentially costly or lengthy data
migration times that impede progress of data-dependent projects.
Unprecedented Performance: offering ~95% bandwidth utilization and near real-time access.
Landmark Transfer Speed: delivers distributed data faster than traditional methods (even over high latency network connections), up to 25x faster when using 100 Gbps connectivity.
Simplicity: ease of use and management through a configurable, web-based multi-site dashboard for administrators, and graphical client or mount-point access for users.
Flexibility: offers simple integration into existing infrastructure (IT, LAN, WAN), and is transport protocol independent and compatible with various storage systems (supports industry-standard NFSv3/4 and SMBv3 connectivity, expandable tiered storage with embedded drives or external iSCSI/FC-attached storage).
Vertical Use Case Examples
Media & Entertainment
& Entertainment companies face significant delays in moving content
between global teams, have a limited ability to edit content remotely,
and are experiencing explosive growth in storage requirements (driven by
the advent of 4K+, 120 fps, 10-bit color-depth video). To overcome these
challenges and promote near real-time collaboration, the Accelion
managed data access platform provides complete flexibility for content
acquisition, production, archiving and distribution workflows with the
strategic choice to transfer content or access it in-place. The solution
enables richer production capabilities, including the remote editing of
full content immediately, while removing the limitation of only working
with a subset of content. The Accelion helps M&E companies to monetize
archived content by providing predictable access. The Accelion platform
also ensures that M&E companies avoid data duplication (thus reducing
storage costs) and copy sprawl (protecting IP) by delivering remote
content access securely.
Financial Services organizations are
increasingly dependent on data analytics, which is driving explosive
growth in storage needs. Large, often geographically-dispersed, data
sets also introduce huge storage and network costs as data must be
migrated to perform the required analytics. With the Accelion, Financial
Services organizations benefit from the complete flexibility for content
acquisition, production, archiving and distribution workflows, with the
strategic choice to transfer content or access it in-place.
Government entities face challenges sharing
data in highly secure ways. Timely access to data is both
mission-critical and difficult. Bandwidth and latency challenges also
exist, as terrestrial and satellite networks are often insufficient for
mission-critical applications. The Accelion platform provides a common
file sharing platform that bridges data center and tactical
environments. With line-speed encryption, enables the secure delivery of
data. And no data manipulation is required thus preserving the integrity
of source of authority. The Accelion also optimizes bandwidth
utilization of existing links and across diverse networks (satellite and
