With the signing of the agreement, Bay Microsystem's technology will be integrated into the Penguin Computing server product line to provide customers a platform to manage, transfer, access, and protect geographically dispersed data as if it were local. Based on Bay Microsystems existing capabilities, including those of its Max Data Xchange®(MaxDX™), Penguin Computing will now be able to provide ~25X faster transfer of or access to distributed data than traditional methods, enabling customers to unleash the value of their distributed data assets while maximizing existing compute, storage, and network resources. Customers will be able to streamline distributed workflows, achieve faster time-to-insight with their data while lowering operational costs. This functionality will be especially valuable to Penguin Computing customers who leverage geographically dispersed data, face latency issues, use collaboration across the globe, and use a variety of complex data types, including rich, 4K quality data used in the media and entertainment industry. "Media and Entertainment organizations face challenges accessing and managing large and often geographically-dispersed data during the production process. These technology barriers can lead to lost money and time," said Terry L. Smith, Senior Director, Advanced Solutions Group, Penguin Computing.
