StrongLink will enable DKRZ to automate 120PB per year of HPC workflows plus the migration of 150PB from its legacy HPSS system to LTFS.

As DKRZ will increase its supercomputing power, their data needs continue to grow to advance cutting edge climate science research. We are thrilled to assist in this important work.”

— Floyd Christofferson, CEO of StrongBox Data Solutions

PORTLAND, OREGON, UNITED STATES, October 29, 2020 / — StrongBox Data Solutions (SBDS), the leading provider of autonomous large scale data management and archive solutions, announced today it was awarded a five-year contract to implement a new data management system for DKRZ, to expand the Center’s critical climate science research data services. The project will be driven by SBDS’s flagship StrongLink software, and will replace the existing HPSS HSM with a new system based upon open standard LTFS and S3, providing researchers with seamless access to 150PB of legacy research data. In addition, StrongLink will also automate multi-tier storage workflows, virtualizing flash, disk, and LTFS tape to support at least 120PB per year of new HPC research data flows.

Leveraging StrongLink’s powerful metadata-driven workflow engines, the new system will enable DKRZ to maintain daily production access to all data, even after the HPSS system has been decommissioned. Users will continue to access data as before, with StrongLink presenting a global normalized view of all data across all storage types.

"This new system will enable DKRZ to expand and modernize essential data services to our research community, while also seamlessly transitioning to a new open-standard platform that can grow as we do." said Prof. Thomas Ludwig, CEO at DKRZ. “This will provide a solid foundation to ensure researchers have on-going access to the critical data needed for climate modeling and improved climate projections.”

StrongLink will be deployed in a scale-out architecture to prioritize 120PB per year in frontside production workflows between existing Tier-0 HPC storage and the new multi-tier system. To do this, StrongLink’s metadata-driven workflow engines will virtualize 1PB of new high-performance Tier-1 cache, and the five legacy Tier-2 tape libraries, automating both day-to-day tiering operations plus the background HPSS-to-LTFS migration of 150PB of existing data. In all, tape IO will be parallelized across 90 tape drives in the five libraries with together more than 75.000 media slots.

“StrongLink was designed to provide customers like DKRZ with a vendor-neutral platform that could seamlessly automate data management and high speed data movement across otherwise incompatible storage types at any scale,” said Floyd Christofferson, CEO of StrongBox Data Solutions. “As DKRZ will increase its supercomputing power, their data needs continue to grow to advance cutting edge climate science research. We are thrilled to assist in this important work.”

The installation, configuration and project management for the new DKRZ data management system will be provided by Cristie Data GmbH, with headquarters in Niedernberg, Germany. Cristie Data will also provide integration services for all of the hardware needed for the project, including servers for StrongLink software, 1PB of Tier-1 storage, and all networking and other components.

Multiple Camera Live Broadcasting Brings Superfici America Technology Center To Their Customers

Our customers have been both excited and surprised by the quality and outcome of viewing their product testing remotely with our broadcast capabilities”

— Steve Bosley, VP Superfici America

CONCORD, NC, UNITED STATES, October 29, 2020 / — In order to bring an immersive and client directed “hands-on” testing experience directly to customers throughout North America, Superfici America has transformed their Technology Center into a multi-camera broadcast TV studio.

“Some of our customers have expressed concern over traveling lately, specifically challenges with the logistics and scheduling associated with getting all of their decision makers to our headquarters here in the Charlotte, NC area. So, we decided to give them the ability to watch and remotely direct their products being tested on our automated finishing solutions, from anywhere in the world,” explains Gator Henry, Marketing Manager for Superfici America.

Utilizing online streaming platforms, the marketing team at Superfici America operates multiple cameras simultaneously to live-stream HD video of their customers’ products being tested in the Superfici America technology center, saving their customers the time and financial resources that would normally be required to travel to the Charlotte for testing in person.

Steve Bosley, the VP at Superfici America, believes this is the future for customer product testing in the finishing industry; “Our customers have been both excited and surprised by the quality and outcome of viewing their product testing remotely with our broadcast capabilities, citing the ability to direct the action themselves, and the ease of getting all of their decision makers online to attend the immersive live experience.” Mr. Bosley added, “When customers can select the point of view of their products being finished and can then see the actual successful results they are hoping to achieve, we feel this will be a significant portion of the demonstrations we perform in the future.”

Relax In Comfort Winter Park Store

ORLANDO, FL, UNITED STATES, October 28, 2020 / — Relax In Comfort is proud to be part of the latest ergonomic initiative for the Florida based space program mission for better ergonomic seating and comfort for the launch team’s scientists and engineer’s during their continuous work hours throughout a space mission.

The United States of America is well known to the entire world for its leading cutting-edge plans for space travel, and to include the new Space Force, however very few have discovered they are equally innovative, and imaginative private companies when it comes to the ergonomic seating solutions to maximize productivity and help reduce stress and discomfort for the mission control team at the Space Coast.

Headquartered just 40 miles away in Winter Park, Fl, Relax in Comfort was approached by the leading space program operator as a natural partner to fulfill their order for a plethora of X-Chairs to include set up & placement for each control center person.

Don DePaulis, President & Founder added “The X-Chair provides the absolute best ergonomic design and comfort for extended periods of sitting – everything is customizable by the user, The X Chair is a perfect fit for any company looking to help improve comfort and productivity for its work force”

Now even those with an earthly domain can experience the amazing X-Chair and enjoy the out of the world ergonomic adjustments and seating solutions to obtain a near pressure free position.
