Data Direct Networks takes on EMC Atmos with Web Object Scaler (WOS)

Data Direct Networks (DDN) announced their entry into the cloud with the introduction of Web Object Scaler (WOS), a clustered storage system based on an object based file system that has been four years in the making.

WOS is targeting the web content and storage market with a particular focus on Internet and Web 2.0 sites, health-care, document imaging, online game development and geospatial information services. DDN have clearly identified the content distribution network (CDN) space with its cost and ownership issues as a prime opportunity and despite the EMC Atmos claim that they are not in this space it is obvious that DDN have Atmos in their sights. 

For a broader discussion of WOS check out my recently posted professional alert on the wikibon web site.

    I'm trying to find your professional alert on the Wikibon site, but cannot find it. The link that you provide doesn't even works as there's no wikibon.net and when going to wikibon.org there's no obvious place for your posting.

    Hi Rich,
    We fixed the link on Bill's blog pointing to his entire article on Wikibon. We didn't realize there was a problem until your note. Thank you for pointing this out to us.
