Achieve digital sovereign resilience at scale

To address today’s cybersecurity challenges, government and defence data must be stored and managed in a way that strengthens national resilience. Auditable secure provenance is an essential part of this puzzle, along with ensuring local ownership and management of every part of cloud service delivery – including its underlying infrastructure.

Implement scalable sovereign cloud infrastructure in the data centre or at the edge

Government and defence data doesn’t always reside within the four walls of a data centre any more – these days it might well be stored on edge infrastructure for a smart cities project, or in the back of a military vehicle for enabling the collection and analysis of performance data.

SoftIron HyperDrive is optimised for power-efficient density, enabling scale in even the most unusual installation circumstances. Engineered to maintain data durability even alongside multiple system failures, HyperDrive helps maintain service availability even when it’ll be a while before you can send someone out to do on-site maintenance.

Mitigate the risk hardware trojans pose to the collection, analysis and dissemination of defence surveillance and intelligence data

Subtle, malicious modifications to computing hardware can fundamentally undermine the security of your solution, rendering software-based security controls useless. These compromised systems then threaten the reliability and integrity of defence data.

SoftIron is the only data infrastructure manufacturer to date that offers the capacity for customers to conduct complete integrity audits, enabling a “zero trust” approach to security from your hardware level up.

And with HyperDrive’s support for data immutability features, you can build a solution with greater resilience to ransomware attacks.

Why SoftIron

Task-specific engineering that delivers power efficient performance

HyperDrive has been designed from the ground up for full interoperability with Ceph. This, combined with a form factor designed to maximise cooling efficiency, means that single racks can be densely provisioned while remaining within power limits. Filling racks in this manner, and distributing data evenly with powerful replication methods, can offer dramatic cost savings compared to traditional enterprise solutions.

Fully auditable secure provenance

Where other manufacturers opt to cut costs by outsourcing manufacture to third parties (and therefore passing on the supply chain risks to their customers) SoftIron takes the opposite approach.

SoftIron has in-house, full control over the design and manufacture of our products. Because of this, we can readily enable appliance integrity audits and system verification at a granular level by third parties.

Simplify infrastructure management tasks at any scale

Skilled network and data engineers are difficult to find, and not all organisations can afford to hire one even when they’re available.

HyperDrive addresses critical skills shortages around data infrastructure management, by simplifying common data centre administration and maintenance tasks. By using SoftIron’s products, customers can conduct many previously complex data management tasks via the dashboard provided by the HyperDrive Storage Manager, and our patented “Ceph button”.
