IceWEB, a provider of Unified Data Storage and building blocks for cloud storage networks, has been awarded an add-on order for additional capacity for its Agriculture Research Service by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA).
The company said that the need to store and manage unstructured data like geospatial images, within the federal government is unlimited.
There is a need for a second tier storage offering that is priced competitively and that can meet the feature set and performance requirements of specified agency requirements.
IceWEB said that its Storage Appliance, which is built around 128 bit open source ZFS, meets the requirements of the USDA.
IceWEB CEO John Signorello said the federal government is, and will remain in the future, a very important customer for the IceWEB family of storage systems as they continue to rapidly grow their digital footprint.
