According to Business Wire, Gluster was selected by Calxeda to be a Trailblazer, and will be first to begin proof of concept testing this fall. Calxeda has created significant industry interest in its ARM-based servers and with the Trailblazer Initiative, Calxeda is reacting to demand from customers and partners to get its chips into servers and datacenters. The initiative is an industry ecosystem of companies dedicated to improving server and datacenter efficiency.
"’As volumes of information increase daily, storage continues to be the holy grail. Gluster’s scale-out NAS approach for cloud and virtual machine environments combined with Calxeda's scale-out architecture will be a formidable player in all things datacenter storage,’ said Barry Evans, CEO, Calxeda. ‘Collaborating, as we will do with Gluster as an early member of Trailblazer, will enable our two companies to make the datacenter of the future real in the very near term.’”
