London, November 5th 2020 - Storage Made Easy® (SME), announces today that ITRI (Taiwan Industrial Technology Research Institute) is using the Storage Made Easy (SME) Enterprise File Fabric as the unifying platform for their file and object storage data.

ITRI is a world-leading applied technology research institute that employs more than 6,000 people. Its mission is to drive industrial development and create economic value through technology R&D. ITRI is a key player in autonomous vehicle development. ITRI technology combines real-time positioning, mapping technology, machine learning, and a range of sensors to simulate driving and capture test data in real world situations. This process generates massive amounts of data that need to be analyzed quickly and precisely.

ITRI decided upon the open source Ceph object storage platform to store its autonomous vehicle testing data, and ITRI selected the Enterprise File Fabric as the platform for data management and collaboration for Ceph and file based data storage.

Users now benefit from:

  • Integration of file and object data estates.
