Kove, ParAccel Team to Deliver Database Cloning and Recovery Solution on Dell Servers

Kove, a provider of high performance storage solutions, in partnership with ParAccel, a leading data analytics platform provider, announced a joint database cloning and recovery solution available on Dell's (News - Alert) PowerEdge servers and Kove XPD2 Storage.

"This collaboration in deploying the Kove Xpress Memory Disk is a continuation of our leadership in high performance storage, providing real world solutions for those who need the absolute fastest storage available," said Kove CEO, John Overton, in a statement. "The XPD2 connects directly to storage fabrics via standard Fibre Channel and InfiniBand interconnects, while reducing end-to-end application latency beyond any other available storage."

Combining the leading analytic platform and the leading high-performance DRAM storage, with Dell's enterprise-class server, the new Kove-ParAccel database duplication solution enables near instantaneous analytic database duplication. It also enables rapid delivery of an analytic sandbox clone that can be used by business analysts, or a quick provisioning clone for development and test in traditional on-premise environments.

ParAccel running on Kove premium high performance storage is designed to suit real world use cases, especially in financial services in the areas of Risk Management, Fraud Detection and Trading.

"The collaboration between ParAccel and Kove using Dell servers will enable innovative use cases for our powerful analytics platform, including the ability to Clone data to aid test and development of new analytics while increasing the quality of the data mart to the business or by deploying a parallel environment that can model an additional scenario," said Chuck Berger, CEO for ParAccel, in a statement.

For the cloning tests, XPD2 storage was mesh-connected to Dell PowerEdge servers running the ParAccel Database at R Systems hosting facility. Kove's XPD2, according to company officials, is the world's fastest storage based on achieving the 14 fastest STAC-M3 Benchmarks ever.

Additionally, Kove Direct Storage Access KDSA technology surpasses other storage media, including Flash memory and spinning disks, maintains consistent speed at any capacity level, up to 100 percent, and does not degrade over time.

"With rapid data growth and requirements for even faster analysis, customers are challenged to find more efficient ways to solve this problem," said Bob Barris, vice president of Global Sales, Banking and Securities at Dell, in a statement. "Dell continues to look for new ways to help enterprise database customers improve IT efficiency and today's demonstration reinforces that there are affordable solutions to rapidly analyze data."

Kove is showcasing the technology at SC2011 High Performance Computing Conference being held on November 14 to November 17 in Seattle, WA. 

Recently ParAccel announced the launch of ParAccel Cloud Edition available for deployment on premise in a private cloud or in a public cloud. ParAccel Cloud Edition speeds time to analytic value allowing near instant deployment of the ParAccel Analytic platform, reducing project risk and allowing enterprise customers to provision just the amount of storage and compute power they need.
