EqualLogic has entered into a strategic partnership with Western Scientific, a provider of systems and services for the high-performance computing marketplace. Western Scientific will integrate EqualLogic’s PS Series platform into its range of high-performance computing and storage solutions.
Western Scientific provides computing clusters, data storage, workstations, and networking solutions to Fortune 50 corporations, scientific research facilities, government and educational institutions, oil and gas exploration firms, and entertainment and media production companies. Western Scientific’s criteria when selecting EqualLogic’s PS Series arrays was a reliable storage solution that scales in performance while being simple to deploy and administer.
EqualLogic claims that its PS Series is the only native iSCSI SAN solution to offer a comprehensive and fully integrated, standard feature set at no additional cost. Each PS Series storage array comes with fully redundant fault-tolerant hardware and includes full-featured automatic storage-management software in a self-contained chassis. Multiple arrays can be combined to form a scalable enterprise storage grid of more than 100 terabytes.
