About Us

ArcaStream provides high performance, data aware, software-defined storage and networking solutions specifically designed to accelerate the world’s most challenging scientific data workflows.

ArcaStream high performance storage combines flash, disk, tape and cloud storage into a multi-protocol, single namespace, unified system that’s higher performing, limitless in scale, easier to manage, far better supported, and lower cost than alternative solutions.

Data moves seamlessly through various tiers of storage – from fast flash to cost-effective, high capacity object storage, all the way out to the cloud, depending on how frequently it needs to be accessed – along with advanced metadata tagging, search, analytics and relentless support. This allows research organizations to store valuable data more intelligently and economically.

ArcaStream High Performance, Data Aware Software-Defined Storage is powered by IBM Spectrum Scale with added ease of use, tiering, cloud integration, monitoring, metadata tagging, search, analytics and relentless support – on open standard hardware – greatly reducing costs.

Ngenea HSM

Ngenea HSM

Economically store and protect valuable data with Ngenea HSM, an extremely fast, highly scalable, data management layer unifying high speed ArcaStream storage with object, NAS, tape and cloud storage into a single global namespace. Ngenea HSM transparently tiers data from high-performance storage to cost effective, highly protected object, tape and cloud storage – lowering storage costs and freeing production storage space.

Enhanced ESS Management And Software

Enhanced ESS Management and Software

ArcaStream Enhanced ESS Management delivers premium managed services and software for IBM Elastic Storage Server. ArcaStream Enhanced ESS Management is designed for organizations that want to exploit the power and flexibility of IBM Elastic Storage Server and IBM Spectrum Scale, but want to free their IT resources to support other critical tasks, while enjoying worry-free ESS operation.

Our Reviews

“Very flexible, truly general purpose NAS. We throw pretty much everything at it and copes brilliantly. Truly scalable too – both for performance and capacity. A few small problems with ctdb (makes samba cluster aware) but for projects on this scale, with a wide use case it’s fair to expect the odd problem. Support (Arcastream/Arcapix) outstanding. I don’t know how we would have managed without them.”

“For us, the key to success was the integrator we used – ArcaStream (also known as Pixit Media). They really really took the time to understand our needs. So few companies take the time to do that. Success would not have been possible with that understanding. Outstanding service and support.”

Our Clients

“The ArcaStream solution will enable CFMS and its customers to flexibly and seamlessly store, access and manage data, providing a software defined scale-out storage and data management solution specifically designed for the research and simulation market.”

Sam Paice, Chief Operating Officer, CFMS

“ArcaStream’s engineers are amongst the best we’ve worked with, and they are able to deliver storage solutions using hardware not traditionally considered for large-scale HPC systems. Their software-defined solution allowed us to provide our researchers a generous amount of storage performance per core at a very compelling price.”
