Solutions for the Edge of the Cloud

YottaStor At the Edge of the Cloud

At the Edge of the Cloud, a massive avalanche of data is pouring out of an ever-increasing number of sensors and machines.  Far too large to move, it must be captured in place, processed, exploited and resulting insights disseminated to decision makers, analysts and to other systems.

The YottaDrive is a commercially available edge node and containerized data center solution. 

Each node is independently capable of ingesting, analyzing, and disseminating multiple petabytes of data from the edge of the cloud. 

Multiple geographically dispersed edge nodes work seamlessly together in a federated architecture that functions within a single global namespace.

Analytics across the global namespace is done in place, with no need to move the data between nodes or across networks. 

No other edge solution offers the capacity, scale, and security accreditations available in the YottaDrive. Benefits include: 

• An operational hybrid cloud that is fully accredited under ICD-503 RMF
• Can be delivered in 90-120 days from contract award.
• A complete managed service  includes all required security updates to sustain an Authority to Operate (ATO) posture.
• Supports immediate migration of current applications into the private cloud environment without  application refactoring required in traditional IaaS commercial cloud environments such as AWS and Azure.
• A hybrid cloud environment powered by Platform9 which allows future applications developed in the commercial cloud environment to be immediately moved to operate in the YottaDrive.
• A cloud pricing model that meets real-life operational requirements.
• Meaningful service level agreements  ensure that the YottaDrive achieves all processing objectives.

The solution is delivered as an operational, single tenant cloud in either a MDC or data center environment.

 YottaStor is manufactured using the same Dell manufacturing capability used by internet companies like eBay. 

YottaStor nodes, deployed at the edge of the cloud, enable massive data capture and seamless integration into a single logical datacenter.  Data is captured at the source, analyzed in place, and federated into a single global namespace.  One logical datacenter that extends to the farthest reaches of the cloud, delivered as a service for just pennies per GB per month. 

Whether your cloud is public, private, purpose built or hybrid, YottaStor is the solution for the edge of the cloud.

ELDORADO provides decision advantage through a purpose-built platform for BIG DATA that rapidly closes the gap between collection, PED and analytics.  ELDORADO represents an advanced capability for analytics against geospatial data collected in forward theatres of operation.  Specifically, ELDORADO pushes advanced analytical exploitation of geospatial objects forward and then provides “reach forward” capability for CONUS based analysts.  ELDORADO is designed to interoperate and can be extended by “plugging in” additional third-party capabilities. 

Data management and access functions provide rapid ingest and dissemination of many geospatial data types, including WAMI, FMV, LIDAR, SAR. OGC services provide application access to the data, and a real-time “reach-in” capability for analysts, allows for video-like playback of wide-area motion imagery.

The analytics capability includes a cognitive search engine that allows analysts to visually explore the personalized vector space through an intuitive interface.  Relevant data sources are connected with geospatial images without requiring that data sources be conditioned.  Structured, unstructured and machine generated data sources are fused, allowing analysts to explore the data, identify critical relationships, and gain actionable insights.

ELDORADO is provisioned by the petabyte of usable large object storage.  Multiple containers can constitute a single global namespace, federated and geographically dispersed, and can scale to exabytes of capacity. Each system includes the associated compute and networking infrastructure to support the analytic functionality.  

ELDORADO is a commercially available service.  The entire system lists for a monthly fee of $240,000 per petabyte ($200,000 on GSA) , and can be configured for either deployed or traditional datacenter environments.  This price point is approximately 80% less than comparable commercial clouds, about 90% less than traditional system integration efforts, and can be up and running in about 90-days.  And ELDORADO is secure, having achieved ATO at the Secret Collateral level.  (ICD-503 reciprocity provisions may be leveraged for accreditation within 30 days of acceptance.) 

The YottaStor team provides three (3) web-scale services to support geospatial data objects. These are Ingest, Search, and Content Dissemination deployed in a Global Namespace environment that can scale to exabytes of capacity.

Service Overview:

Ingest  - This service enables authorized users to ingest data into the LDOS Global Namespace. This Ingest Service is optimized for specific target data types and is regularly updated to incorporate new and modified industry standards. All data ingested into the LDOS Global Namespace can be accessed through the LDOS Search and Disseminate Services by any authorized user.

Search  - This service allows authorized users to execute powerful searches and queries against the data stored in the LDOS Global Namespace.

Content Dissemination - This service allows authorized users to extract data from the LDOS Global Namespace using industry standards such as OGC Rest APIs and NIFTS data formats to bring the object back to their operational systems for further processing.

Global Namespace Scalability - The ability to scale the Global Namespace storage capacity without any disruption to the LDOS Services. As additional storage capacity is added to the Global Namespace, this new capacity is immediately available to the LDOS Services.

Provided as a “fee for service” based on the number of petabytes provisioned.

Analytic agnostic

ELDORADO is analytically agnostic.  The architecture allows customers to deploy the appropriate analytical stack to meet their mission requirements.  This analytical stack will access the global namespace using industry standard RestAPI services.  The design stores large objects only once and allows applications to access and consume only those objects necessary to achieve the required outcome.
