avnet inc (AVT) Key Developments

RGS Announces the Release of the RGS Object Storage for Active Data Solution

RGS announced the release of the RGS Object Storage for Active Data solution. Developed by RGS in conjunction with Amplidata, the RGS Object Storage for Active Data solution is capable of handling zettabytes of data and trillions of stored objects under a single global namespace. It will be available through RGS's network of value-added resellers, managed service providers and integrated software vendors in the Americas. Conventional storage is no longer suitable for the enormous amounts of data organizations create each day. They need new -- highly scalable and flexible -- options. Powered by Amplidata's Himalaya intelligent multi-threaded grid storage architecture, the RGS Object Storage for Active Data is designed to scale capacity and throughput performance independently, using simple building blocks consisting of 1U Control Nodes and 1U high-density Storage Nodes connected via a 10 GbE/1 GbE fabric. To optimize cost and performance, the RGS Object Storage solution uses standard Intel Xeon processor based x86 servers and storage nodes powered by Amplidata's patented BitSpread and BitDynamics technologies. These systems can seamlessly accommodate additional storage nodes with higher capacity drives as well as anywhere, anytime data availability from a global namespace, all while using nearly 60% less raw capacity than comparable RAID-based replicated systems. The RGS Object Storage for Active Data solution includes: Patented BitSpread and BitDynamics technologies and Himalaya storage architecture from Amplidata; Linear performance scaling using rate-less erasure coding optimized to get the most out of the newest Intel processors; 15 nines data durability; Global namespace and single pane management; The ability to dynamically scale system throughput performance by adding one or more controllers without disruption. The RGS Object Storage solution is fully supported by Avnet, and includes installation and support by professionally trained RGS technicians.

Avnet Seeks Acquisitions

Avnet, Inc. (NYSE:AVT) is seeking acquisitions. Gerry Fay, President EM Global of Avnet, said, "At the end of the day for us, acquisition is always about what our core strategy is. So we look for accelerating core strategies by looking for acquisition targets that fit those strategies. So most simply, anywhere where we have either line card shortfalls or we're not strong in a market, we would look to acquire companies that would meet our profit goal projections in those areas. And outside of that, I think we look for acquisitions around some of the adjacencies we're investing in, such as embedded." Gerry Fay added, "I think we're also making investments in the Web, and I think there's properties around the Web that, given the right price, we would look at acquiring those properties also."
