November 1, 2017 –Dunstable, UK – AccelStor, the software-defined all-flash array provider, will be demonstrating its NeoSapphire all-flash array products at the “GDPR in the Public Sector” Conference. NeoSapphire All-Flash arrays offer a worry-free and GDPR compliant storage solution. AccelStor’s software-defined storage platform provides both powerful performance and strong data protection capabilities assisting customers with heavy-load requirements to construct a secured IT infrastructure and ensure they are GDPR compliant. The NeoSapphire All-Flash Array will be on display at Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester, UK on November 8, 2017.
The EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) will take effect in May 2018 and will cover the European Union across all 28 EU members. It’s a new legal framework in the EU that aims to protect citizens regarding the processing and usage of personal data. In the UK, the requirement to be compliant will be unaffected by the planned exit from the EU in 2019.
AccelStor Vice President, David Kao, said “With the GDPR coming into effect it’s becoming crucial for any organisation and enterprise to review their internal process of handling any personal, company or government data. This calls for a refresh of security and data protection policies as well as new efficient tools and storage platforms like NeoSapphire all-flash array.”
As demand for high performance computing grows from the trend of IOT, artificial intelligence and big data analysis, enterprises require ever more powerful IT infrastructure. Different from conventional disk arrays, generating around 400K IOPS with over 1000 hard disk drives, the NeoSapphire all-flash array (AFA) could present stunning performance with a market-leading 1 million IOPS using only 24 SSDs and utilizing only 2U of rack space*. The NeoSapphire product range, using the FlexiRemap® software technology, coupled with a shared-nothing architecture, provides a proven AFA platform for data integrity and data protection. AccelStor’s NeoSapphire high availability all-flash array products deliver 99.9999% reliability and enables comprehensive data protection across the enterprise. Furthermore, to ensure minimum RPO and RTO for IT operators, the NeoSapphire series also provides instant failover, space-efficient snapshots, snapshots backup and a worry-free active-active hardware design.
Handling personal data is the key for GDPR compliance. Steps must be taken to try and minimise the possibility of personal identification and ensure that the data inventory is stored in a secure location and device. The data controller must conduct privacy impact assessments and implement technical measures within the GDPR principles. As an enterprise storage vendor with customers who will be within the GDPR scope, AccelStor can provide Self Encrypting Disk (SED) SSDs which provide storage level data protection and compliance with the “data at rest” section of the GDPR regulation.
