Avere cloud storage helping FBS serve up 4M listing photos a day

FBS Data Systems is using Avere Systems’ FXT Series Edge Filers to “decouple capacity from performance” and serve up 4 million listing photos a day to users of the more than 120 multiple listing services that FBS provides services to, the companies said.

Avere provides enterprise storage for cloud enabled data centers. FBS Vice President of IT Jaison Freed said that as the size and quality of photos grows, using Avere as a buffer helps FBS manage seasonal fluctuations in workload, and exceed the performance and capacity of back-end storage during peak times.
