I/ITSEC: Loyola Enterprises Demonstrates Ultra-High Performance Storage at Simulation Conference to Support Joint Forces Command Program

Share Article

Loyola Enterprises, Inc., working with DataCore Software will showcase its geospatial processing system and the role of high-speed, integrated SANmelodyÂ? Disk Server software based SAN-FIREÂ? systems at the Joint Forces Command simulation program demonstration that highlights the role of Storage Area Network technology within the Global Information Grid Architecture. The exhibition will be held at the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference being held in Orlando, December 6-9, 2004.

Today, Loyola Enterprises, Inc., will be demonstrating its geospatial processing system and DataCore Software based SAN-Fire™ storage systems at the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC).

Benito Loyola, president of Loyola Enterprises Inc. said, “Our success in complex program wins and this demonstration are proof that Storage Area Network (SAN) technology will be a major component of the Global Information Grid (GIG) architecture. SAN- Fire™ systems are redefining the impact of ultra-high performance storage networks in providing correlated and synchronized modeling and simulation events, and very soon we will be testing advanced generation systems to directly support Net-Centric Battlespace capabilities. SAN- Fire™ represents a major advance in speed and ease of use which translates directly into better simulation systems. The combination of performance and the leverage of cost-effective COTS (commercial-off-the-shelf) technology are unprecedented in delivering value.”

The Joint Forces Command simulation program highlights SAN- Fire™ ’s capabilities to provide a robust and highly available storage framework that directly supports the highly diverse and complex data requirements of Modeling and Simulation. Loyola, a key innovator and program integrator, will demonstrate its ability to deliver an unparalleled level of performance for today’s complex 3D visualizations, modeling and simulation exercises, which require ingesting massive amounts of data from many different sources, processing, analyzing, and then displaying the information and models for the use of the Joint Forces Command.

SAN- Fire™ is a fully integrated, ultra-high speed, fault tolerant geospatial processing system incorporating both servers and multi-terabytes of storage capacity per unit. DataCore adds unique caching technology to SAN- Fire™, and consistently outperforms competitor’s storage array offerings in benchmark comparisons. Staggering performance acceleration means faster 3-D visualization and database construction, wider support for more users, and world-class speed even from economical Serial ATA (SATA) disk drives. SANmelody enables SAN- Fire™ to leverage COTS technology to attain the best price/performance attributes from the latest server, storage and network components. The future-proof architecture makes it easy to incorporate the latest technologies seamlessly, thus continually improving cost-effectiveness and performance.

“In these complex visualization and simulation environments with such importance to the nation, it is crucial that the foundation be the absolute fastest and most reliable storage system available – and DataCore is proud to be the ones providing the storage software platform,” said George Teixeira, CEO and president, DataCore Software. “In addition to our performance advantage, we have also managed to hide the complexities of complex storage tasks. With SAN- Fire™ systems, our auto-provisioning storage capabilities enable Visualizers and Pre-processors to focus on their work and achieve high productivity without worrying about details such as having enough storage capacity to handle it.”

DataCore's SANmelody based SAN- Fire™ systems protect the data and handle the automated storage provisioning, disk performance acceleration, high availability and remote data replication as the baseline for military and civil simulations, 3D modeling, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and other database processing.

Loyola Enterprises recently announced pricing for SAN- Fire™ 4 Terabytes Managed Storage Systems starting at $28,057.00. To learn more see: http://www.loyola.com/SANFire
