Mercury’s Data Recorder Eases Access to Big Data at the Edge

Sept. 2, 2022
A data-center-class, all-flash-memory, network-attached storage system serves mission-critical AI and machine-learning applications.

The Overview

For mission-critical aerospace, defense, and commercial edge applications, Mercury SystemsRugged Data Storage (RDS) system is designed for low latency, scalability, and security. The system provides enterprise storage with a universal, single-tier flash cloud for all types of data. It eliminates bottlenecks and complex storage tiering traditionally done with hard-disk drives and other media.

Who Needs It & Why?

The proliferation of sensors like radar and image capture have resulted in an explosion of data that's difficult to store, access, or analyze in real-time on conventional hard-disk or flash drives. RDS’s universal data-storage approach enables fast, secure access to big data and AI and machine-learning-powered exploitation at the edge, so users can make critical decisions quickly.

RDS relies on commercial flash technology coupled with unique software algorithms from VAST Data Federal to extend write endurance to 10+ years, as well as reduce disk space requirements via innovative data reduction and compression capabilities that lower total cost of ownership. Optimized for size, weight, and power-constrained rugged environments such as aircraft, ships, ground radar stations, and industrial applications, Mercury’s RDS system improves performance, ease of serviceability, and data protection at the edge.

Under the Hood

Mercury’s RDS puts scalable, multi-petabyte, all-flash data storage next to the data source for edge-based, real-time applications like advanced threat detection and sensor fusion. It deploys a universal, single-tier flash cloud for all types of data with high-speed NVM Express (NVMe) performance to eliminate bottlenecks and complex storage tiering. Other features include:

  • Data-processing-unit (DPU) network acceleration, storage-class memory, affordable hyperscale flash technology, and VAST Data software algorithms for fast access to big data, AI, and ML insights over high-speed Ethernet.
  • More short-depth storage boxes (D-BOX), compute boxes (C-BOX), and/or network switch boxes can infinitely scale performance or storage capacity.
  • MIL-STD-810 ruggedization and integrated FIPS 140-2 security.
