PROMISE Technology & Conceptual Analytics

BACKGROUND

Founded in 2000, Conceptual Analytics provides scientic and technical services and products to government, universities, and industry. Conceptual Analytics' comprehensive support includes program planning, project management, systems engineering and requirements development, data analysis, and technology development.

SOLUTION
The Conceptual Analytics team was already familiar with PROMISE RAID system; using multiple integrated VTrak, Pegasus, and SANLink devices. Since the early VTrak days, the team has used this storage solution to perform scientic data analysis of imaging arrays, which generate a large volume of data. These analysis tasks used a combination of commercial software such as IDL or Mathematica, as well as custom software. This work has supported major NASA missions such as the Hubble Space Telescope, the James Webb Space Telescope, and more recently, the Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST). When they recently acquired Apple’s new Mac Pro, they naturally chose to install the Pegasus R4i internal RAID hardware. The Mac Pro is equipped with 16 TB of SSD RAID0 maximize throughput during processing. The Pegasus R4i in this system is used to mirror the SSDs (for backup), as well as for Mac OS Time Machine system backup.
