XENON Systems Acquires Myriad All-Flash Cloud-Native Solution for Advancing AI, Research, and Data Science Workloads

Quantum Corporation (NASDAQ: QMCO) has declared that XENON Systems, a prominent high-performance computing and intricate data storage specialist, has acquired Quantum Myriad™, an all-flash, scale-out file and object storage software platform. XENON will offer Myriad to their customers with rigorous data-intensive workloads that necessitate high speed infrastructure for artificial intelligence (AI) models and multi-variant simulations across life sciences, medical research, engineering, and other high-performance computing use cases. XENON currently sells Quantum ActiveScale™ object storage to their clients who are producing massive data sets and need to build a secure, low-cost private storage cloud that permits swift and secure access to their burgeoning research and data sets. Now, with Myriad and ActiveScale, XENON customers can particularly accomplish comprehensive end-to-end data management, unifying different classes of storage – from their hottest data to their coldest data – all from a single vendor.

XENON erects solutions to resolve intricate parallel compute problems and large-scale data management workflows, across both on-premises and cloud infrastructure, with a substantial portion of their customer base in the life sciences, research, and high-performance computing industries. These customers are extending the use of AI models to embellish and expedite their work, and require an ultra-fast, compelling solution that can fuel these tough workloads and graphics processing units (GPU).

XENON acknowledged Myriad’s innovative architecture engineered to dispense sizzling fast performance at any scale using the newest flash technologies. It introduces inline data services such as deduplication and compression, snapshots and clones, and metadata tagging to hasten AI/machine learning (ML) data processing. And it uses usual and verified cloud technologies, like microservices and Kubernetes®, to deliver cloud simplicity wherever deployed, no custom hardware required. XENON intends to display the Myriad system they procured at forthcoming trade shows and to employ it to demonstrate the solution’s capabilities to potential clients.

AI workloads and GPUs necessitate two things: hyper-speed processing on the front end, and long-term protection of the data they produce. This data must be preserved for years, enabling future examination and insight as methodologies improve. XENON identified the value of offering Myriad along with ActiveScale to address this challenge.

“Myriad boasts a modern architecture that can sustain the AI models and simulations our life sciences customers are executing continuously,” Dragan Dimitrovici, XENON CEO, remarked. “The fact that Quantum has complete end-to-end solutions for the entire lifecycle of data—Myriad for the most demanding AI production workloads and ActiveScale for creating active and cold data stores at petabyte to exabyte scale—renders their offerings particularly valuable to our customers.”

“XENON has been a key Quantum ally for many years, providing a wide variety of our solutions, now including Myriad, perfect for life sciences and medical research, which is the customer base XENON serves. Because these use cases rely on AI to enhance and expedite their work, Myriad offers the perfect solution,” stated Nick Elvester, general manager, primary storage for Quantum. “With ActiveScale and Mryiad, these customers are also getting a complete end-to-end, ‘hot to cold’ solution for their data.”

XENON, alongside Quantum, will be exhibiting Myriad at the Supercomputing Asia Show 2024 in Sydney, Australia (February 19-22) in booth 19. For more information about Myriad, ActiveScale, and Quantum’s entire suite of end-to-end solutions, visit www.quantum.com.
