Library of Congress Turns to Avere for Data Storage

World's Largest Library Drives Web Environment and File Access with Avere FXT Series Edge Filers

Pittsburgh, PA June 26, 2013 - Avere Systems, the leader in network-attached storage (NAS) optimization, has announced today that the Library of Congress has selected the company to increase the efficiency and performance of its storage infrastructure. The Library of Congress website and file repositories will be supported by Avere's FXT Series Edge Filers, enabling congressional and public users quick access to valuable content.

"The Avere FXT Series, with its ability to deliver up to 150 TB of Flash in a single cluster, was built to address the difficulty of providing fast and scalable access to large amounts of content typified by the Library of Congress data environment," said Ron Bianchini, president and CEO, Avere Systems. "This is a tremendous achievement for Avere and we are excited that our products are helping the Library of Congress deliver its massive data stores to users."

As the world's largest library and the research arm of the United States Congress, the amount of digitized data is staggering. With a collection of 150 million-plus items ranging from cataloged books, to manuscripts, to sheet music and sound recordings, the government agency required a robust and scalable NAS solution for this data. With the help of Avere, the Library of Congress can optimize the performance of its current storage environment and can consolidate the management of millions of files into a single global namespace.

"The Library of Congress is a great example of how to address big data management with hybrid storage systems that are highly performant yet highly efficient," said Rebecca Thompson, vice president of marketing, Avere Systems. "With the addition of Avere, the Library of Congress can continue to provide its constituents with quick access to information in the face of continued data growth."

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...
