Below is our recent interview with Ken Grohe, Chief Revenue Officer of Stellus Technologies:
Q: What’s the best way to describe Stellus Technologies?
A: Stellus provides Hyperscale Throughput for the Digital Enterprise.
The Stellus Data Platform is a SaaS-based system built for Cloud, Core and Edge infrastructures. Stellus created the industry’s first Key-Value over Fabrics system. The Stellus Data Platform combines Key-Value over Fabric with high-throughput key-value stores and algorithmic data locality — to deliver consistent, fast, highly scalable parallel data access performance. Stellus is designed for the most demanding data-intensive workloads and applications such as cognitive AI, machine learning, high-speed microscopy, genomic sequencing, and data streaming applications.
Q: What is key-value store or Key-value over Fabrics — and why is it important?
A: Hyperscalers like Google, Amazon, Facebook and LinkedIn had to start with a brand new slate when they were building a scalable system that could serve billions. And they built it using key-value store architecture because only a key-value store-based file system can handle that demand. Legacy storage architectures rely on block and file-on-block technologies that were great for 15-20 years ago before SSD and Flash – but for today’s modern environments where companies depend on massive amounts of unstructured data to deal with machine learning and AI and other processes to make strategic business decisions — Stellus is the only answer as it is the only system using this innovative Key-Value over Fabrics architecture.
