Kodiak Data Introduces EdgeCache
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 12, 2017 — Kodiak Data today announced general availability of EdgeCache, a transparent object replication service connecting Kodiak Data clouds to public clouds like Amazon Web Services (AWS). EdgeCache tiers S3 objects inside Kodiak Data MemCloud for high-speed, local access. Software stacks such as HDFS, Elasticsearch, Druid, and Spark running in MemCloud can now access S3 objects at speeds exceeding 10Gbps, significantly reducing processing time and cost.
Customers can also use EdgeCache as an ultra-fast S3 proxy service to connect directly to the internet at speeds exceeding 10Gbps, allowing for flexible policy rules to simplify “long-tail” data management for analytics, big data, IoT, log analysis and other data pipeline jobs.
“EdgeCache is an exciting part of our vision of seamless connection from our memory-speed edge cloud to existing public clouds,” said Som Sikdar, CEO of Kodiak Data. “Since EdgeCache works with your existing credentials for AWS, the fastest object store is the one you already have.”
EdgeCache is also available as a standalone product outside of Kodiak Data clouds for KVM, AWS, and VMware, greatly simplifying deployment in existing virtual environments to speed up access to S3, Ceph or other object stores. These “virtual appliance” versions are available from Kodiak Data and Kodiak Data’s partners. Sign up to access a free demo at http://central.memcloud.works/.
