BAE Systems Delivers Government-Grade Big Data Storage Solution to Commercial Customers

COLUMBIA, Md. --(Business Wire)--

BAE Systems (News - Alert) is redefining the economics of big data storage with the launch of its TeraStarTM system for commercial customers. The system is a data storage solution engineered to meet the next-generation government and military big data storage requirements while accommodating the cost and size needs of small to medium sized businesses and cloud-based storage providers.

"Weoriginally developed the TeraStar data storage system to fit the government's strict cost, size, weight, and capacity requirements that legacy commercial products were not designed to meet," said Andrew Russette, product manager at BAE Systems. "Now we're offering this compact and power-efficient solution to commercial businesses at a cost per terabyte that is roughly one quarter of the industry average."

The TeraStar system's unique design enables it to store immense volumes of data with minimal operational expense by requiring nominal physical space and using less power than traditional big data storage systems. The system's scalable, ultra-dense storage capacity also delivers a competitive advantage to cloud-based storage providers by reducing the overall cost per terabyte of storage capacity. To store the same amount of data, other single system commercial standard offerings typically require twice the rack space, utilize twice the power, and require more cooling. In addition, the TeraStar system's design is compatible with a wide variety of storage media devices enabling substantial storage flexibility.

BAE Systems developed the TeraStar solution to accommodate the massive amount of data produced by next-generation sensors. The company has leveraged this internally developed solution to support sensors such as ARGUS, the gigapixel-plus wide-area persistent surveillance sensor that BAE Systems created for the U.S. government.
