Cycle Computing has released DataManager, a new solution that schedules and manages the secure transfer and storage of data sets needed for large-scale computations. According to the company, DataManager seamlessly automates data archival and retrieval from lower cost cloud storage solutions, such as Amazon Glacier. This enables users to more quickly and cost-effectively conduct a wide range of compute and data-intensive workloads in areas such as life sciences, financial services, manufacturing, academia and energy.
‘We introduced DataManager to meet the growing need for scientists to more efficiently manage large amounts of data to foster new discoveries in their fields,’ said Jason Stowe, CEO of Cycle Computing. ‘Researchers now have the ability to control the transfer of large computation result, to and from various internal and cloud-based storage. With DataManager, intelligent scheduling and automation can keep data in the right place at the right time for reference and future research.’
DataManager is now available for general use after being successfully tested and used in beta by two leading pharmaceutical companies and two of the top five life insurance organisations.
