Sterling, US: IceWEB – a leading provider of Unified Data Storage and building blocks for cloud storage networks, announced that Ardent Management Consulting has been awarded a contract to deploy IceWEB technologies to power the image processing workflow that is core to federal customers mapping and GIS services.
Using IceWEB 3000, featuring its Unified Storage Management operating system, Ardent can now consolidate imagery onto a single, high performance, highly scalable, shared pool of storage, increasing image processing speeds.
Michael Matechak, Vice President, ArdentMC, said, “Prior to deploying IceWEB’s unified storage platform, the performance and scalability demands of our unique customer needs overwhelmed traditional storage systems, limiting GIS processing performance and workflow productivity. ArdentMC needed a high performance storage scalable for an Enterprise-wide solution for a Federal Customer, while reducing the unnecessary storage management burden. The superior image processing speeds, storage capacity, and lower cost comparison to competitors, made the selection of IceWEB an easy decision to meet the goals of the operating system.”
