Edge Computing Platform Brings Real-Time to Streaming Data Analytics

By Ken Briodagh May 02, 2017

In a recent release, X-IO Technologies has announced that its Axellio edge-computing platform is now available, and reportedly set to deliver huge real-time performance at 480 Gbps for complex analytics on high-volume, high-velocity, streaming data.

The solution’s combination of performance, density and cost is designed to enable the next generation of capabilities for cybersecurity, financial market data, defense and intelligence, operations and Internet of Things (IoT), the company said in the release. X-IO also announced joint efforts with leading software makers to deliver Axellio with several big data analytics and cybersecurity solutions.

Axellio is tailored to the edge-computing market, providing a high-density, converged server/storage platform that leverages its NVMe FabricXpress architecture to provide sustained throughput and end-to-end, low-latency response.

“Axellio brings to the table a throughput performance of more than 480 Gbps and more than 12 million input/output operations per second, making it an ideal platform for edge computing,” said Bill Miller, CEO, X-IO. “With Axellio’s power, customers can quickly detect cybersecurity threats, ensure the functioning of financial markets and guarantee stable operations of critical IoT infrastructures despite phenomenal growth. It is the ideal platform for advanced streaming data analytics.”

X-IO announced several team-ups with companies that specialize in cybersecurity and data analytics, including:

Ascolta - a ViON company, and a leading systems integrator that provides cyber and advanced analytic solutions and services.

ISSAC - An advanced complex predictive and descriptive data analytics firm for several U.S. federal agencies, advanced genomics research, global healthcare initiatives, transportation and energy.

Solarflare – A provider of application-intelligent networking I/O software and hardware platforms that accelerate, monitor and secure network data.

“Data that does not enable insights is meaningless, yet our interconnected world also demands that such insights be delivered at very high speed to avoid them becoming equally worthless,” said Mark Peters, practice director and senior analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. “It’s a combination that is driving storage vendors, such as X-IO, to redefine their offerings by either converging storage and servers and/or via creative partnerships with solution providers, in order to retain contemporary IT relevance and to remain competitive.”
