Maximizing the value of distributed digital data assets has become even more strategic for an ever-growing number of businesses. This requires real-time transfer of and access to terabytes of data without regard for location – regionally, nationally or globally.
Max Data XchangeTM (MaxDX) is designed to unleash the value of data assets by maximizing available bandwidth, minimizing data replication and data transfer between locations, resulting in optimal performance and operational efficiencies. It empowers organizations to streamline distributed workflows, improve productivity and enhance collaboration using data in place.
MaxDX is a converged platform that bridges the gap between industry-standard enterprise or cloud storage and the MAN/WAN. It establishes a unified, geo-diverse storage overlay for moving and accessing data, which addresses the common challenges of geographically dispersed data: volume, location, performance and end-user experience. MaxDX leverages proven and highly efficient networking technology and tightly integrates it with High Performance Computing (HPC) technologies and a robust management tool, MaxDX Manager. When installed at each location, MaxDX establishes a unified data platform, which bypasses the inherent inefficiencies of traditional networked data.
Packaged in a rack-mount and travel case form factor, MaxDX supports most LAN, SAN and WAN interfaces. Using industry standard storage protocols, MaxDX allows remote storage to be mounted locally for networked clients without disrupting workflows and existing SAN/NAS environments.
The platform integrates seamlessly into existing enterprise storage and network environments to preserve investments and lower overall costs. The MaxDX solution achieves ~95% utilization of the available terrestrial or satellite network bandwidth. Maintenance is easy with a single installation at each site, and streamlined administration and monitoring via web-based applications.
