Arkeia and SGI are cooperating on marketing programs designed to support enterprise network backup applications for SGI systems based on industry-standard technologies and components, such as the Altix server using Intel(R) Itanium(R) 2 processors and a choice of standard Linux distributions.
"Arkeia Network Backup and the Altix product line, combined with expert customer support, training and professional services from Arkeia and SGI, offer a powerful combination of performance, reliability and value that can address customer needs across many industries," said Anneke Dempsey, Sr. Director of Global Alliances. "SGI is delighted to work with Arkeia on solving big data requirements and breakthrough performance. We are excited to further communicate the potential of the Altix family of servers running the Arkeia enterprise network backup solution here at Oracle OpenWorld."
"The combination of Arkeia on the 64-bit Itanium 2 processor-based SGI Altix platform can be an effective solution for supercomputer-class applications with massive amounts of data, and we are looking forward to extending this success by working more closely with SGI," said Frederic Renard, Arkeia's director of marketing. "As Arkeia becomes more widely used, the level and extent of the support that Arkeia is seeing from some of the top vendors in the industry like SGI will benefit all its users."
Arkeia Network Backup features increased 64-bit Linux support with packages for Intel Itanium 2 and AMD Opteron(TM) as well as support of Kernel 2.6 Linux distributions. Arkeia also offers a tightly integrated solution for online Oracle database backup.
In addition, Arkeia v5.3 supports NDMP network-attached storage (NAS) devices and Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Services (VSS) technology embedded in Windows(R) 2003 servers, while incorporating enhancements to existing elements of the scalable data protection solution for heterogeneous environments.
