General Atomics Releases Next Generation Nirvana 5.0
Oct 6 16
General Atomics announced the next generation of Nirvana, a premier metadata, data placement and data management software solution for the most demanding workflows in Life Sciences, Scientific Research, Media & Entertainment and Energy Exploration. Nirvana 5.0 reduces storage costs by 75% by turning geographically dispersed, multiple vendor storage silos into a single global namespace that automatically moves infrequently-accessed data to lower-cost storage or to the cloud. Nirvana 5.0 can locate hard-to-find data by querying comprehensive user-defined, workflow-specific metadata describing the data stored – no matter where it is located or when it was created. Nirvana 5.0 features significant performance and functionality enhancements: 1 million files per minute file system scan rate, Optimized for fast operation with PostgresSQL, upgraded intuitive Graphical User Interface, support for Google Cloud Storage, added Python and C# Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), query policies now support regular expressions using a "similar to" operation, full native 64-bit Windows support, enhanced documentation and Extensive coding examples included in the SDK. Compared to open-source solutions, Nirvana 5.0 is faster, more reliable with no single point of failure or need for separate zones, and it is easier to use with an integrated graphical user interface. Nirvana 5.0 also costs less by eliminating the need for expensive commercial database software, and requires fewer administrators and less hardware to operate.
