SAN ANTONIO, Texas --Landmark introduced an innovative data-compression appliance today at the annual meeting of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) in San Antonio.
According to Landmark, the device, known as the Storwize STN 6000, can triple data-storage capacities through real-time storage compression. This improves storage space without adding storage devices. Installation does not change existing infrastructure. The compression operations are transparent, while application and storage performance increase as a result of the device, Landmark says.
The Storwize STN 6000 is designed to work with any network attached storage array, including those from leading providers like EMC and NetApp. It delivers real-time, lossless data compression and decompression. These benefits are particularly useful in the E&P industry, where users generate terabytes of data each day, Landmark says.
