IceWEB, a provider of unified data storage and cloud storage networks, has received a new contract award from West Coast partner nDataStor for a storage system 5000-HC.
nDataStor said that the IceWEB storage system 5000 was an all-inclusive storage platform that will simplify the management of users environment, letting user store both block and file data on one enterprise-class system.
The IceWEB 5000 storage system can start modestly and scale into multiple disk shelves capable of storing 100s of Terabytes of unstructured data making it the perfect offering for high growth imaging environments.
IceWEB said that the end customer is one of the largest federally funded research facilities in the country and the highly scalable storage system 5000-HC will be used to store millions of cellular images for the institution’s cancer research.
nDataStor president Peter Prieto said the order is a significant win for nDataStor and IceWEB and the highly scalable IceWEB storage appliance will be a marquee install with the high profile customer, which is expected to generate 100s of Terabytes in additional orders as the institutions cellular image storage management requirements expand.
