CSPI Announces Partnership With System Fabric Works Expanding Its Product
Offering to Include Advanced Remote Storage Solutions
BILLERICA, Mass., July 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CSP Inc. (Nasdaq:CSPI)
MultiComputer Division, a leading supplier of commercially developed rugged
embedded computers, announced today that it has entered into a strategic
reseller agreement with System Fabric Works (SFW). The agreement enables the
CSPI MultiComputer Division to resell System Fabric Works storage appliances
as part of its integrated high performance embedded computing system
"Because today's intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR)
applications generate tremendous volumes of sensor data, the need for massive
storage devices capable of being accessed in real-time for recording data has
become critical to our customers," said Paul Martino, Director of US Sales,
CSPI. "We are pleased to be able to offer these customers a technologically
advanced solution that makes it efficient, fast, and cost effective to manage
and store all that data."
CSPI platforms featuring Intel® Xeon® multicore processors and an InfiniBand
fabric are able to leverage SFW's Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) enabled
storage solutions that transfer data directly between user applications and
the storage device. The RDMA-enabled InfiniBand fabric facilitates terminating
the transfer at the application, avoiding an operating system data copy in
each direction of transfer, thus dramatically cutting latency, increasing
performance, and reducing CPU utilization.
CSPI's TeraXP™ OpenVPX™ Embedded Servers and 4000 SERIES AdvancedTCA products
support the OpenFabrics Enterprise Distribution (OFED) on Red Hat Enterprise
Linux. The OFED stack contains the drivers, the operating systems' interfaces
and the upper level protocols that enable Linux to be RDMA storage initiator.
Available in 2U, 3U, and 5U enclosures, these storage appliances include an
integrated server, RAID disk array, RAID controller and network adapter.
"Under this collaboration CSPI is able to offer their customers flexible
configurations delivering low cost per megabyte data storage and up to wire
speed performance on transfers across the InfiniBand fabric," said Roger
Ronald, Chief System Architect at System Fabric Works.
