"DDN's DirectMon takes the complexity out of managing even the world's largest Big Data environments, and enables our customers to deploy simple infrastructure capable of scaling up for deep storage capacity and scaling out for added storage capacity and performance", stated Jean Luc Chatelain, Executive Vice President of Strategy and Technology at DDN. "DirectMon increases our customers' agility as they continue to resolve critical growth and challenges in the Big Data era."
DirectMon is immediately available for DDN's SFA platforms, including the 6620, 10K and 12K series of products. Additionally, DirectMon will immediately support DDN's Gridscaler file system and IBM GPFS environments. This is the first of a release strategy that will, over time, address the broader range of DDN's file storage products as well as the company's analytics infrastructure direction.
"Around the world, we are seeing an extraordinary amount of investment being made to store, manage, and process the massive data sets of the Big Data era", stated Jeff Boles, Senior Analyst and Director of Validation Services, Taneja Group. "DDN was one of the first vendors to realize that Big Data is equal parts management and storage. Our research shows that Big Data customers are consistently challenged with data management as their Big Data initiatives grow. DirectMon will undoubtedly be a key tool for Big Data customers as they face inevitable future growth, and this goes hand-in-hand with DDN's company DNA: DDN storage systems have long enabled new customers to enter into Big Data initiatives when they wouldn't have been able to otherwise for reasons of storage complexity."
DirectMon is available for sale immediately.
