The U.S. Air Force Looks To Advanced Manufacturing To Keep Existing Aircraft Flying And Develop Next-Gen Capabilities

What if there were Olympic events that weren’t physical, but were focused instead on completely geeking out on super-cool breakthrough technologies for real-world aerospace and defense challenges? Even better, what if they offered prize money totaling nearly a million dollars?

Now there are just such events, thanks to the U.S. Air Force’s Rapid Sustainment Office (RSO). In fact, participants in five such Olympic “sports” (or Technical Challenges, as the RSO calls them) have already been competing over the past few months. Those competitions will culminate when the winners are announced during next week’s four-day Advanced Manufacturing Olympics. This virtual conference runs from October 20-23, and features technology demonstrations, expert speakers from both industry and the military, virtual networking opportunities, and the awarding of prized for those Technical Challenges mentioned above.

“RSO is working to revolutionize sustainment, while building an agile supply chain for the future,” said Nathan Parker, Deputy Program Executive Officer at the RSO. “Originally, we were planning to hold this inaugural event outside Salt Lake City, Utah. But then Covid hit, so we’ve taken the whole thing virtual.”

Event speakers will include military officials such as Barbara M. Barrett, Secretary of the Air Force; General Charles Q. Brown, Jr., Chief of Staff of the Air Force; and General John W. Raymond, Chief of Space Operations of the U.S. Space Force. Other speakers featured are Sebastian Thrun, founder of Google X; Dr. Mae Jemison, NASA astronaut; and Brad Kesolowski, NASCAR Cup Series driver and founder of Kesolowski Advanced Manufacturing.

The five Technical Challenges began with an

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — OpenDrives, the global provider of enterprise-grade, hyper-scalable network-attached-storage (NAS) solutions, announces today the availability of Atlas 2.1, the next version of its software platform and file system that powers all OpenDrives storage solutions. Atlas 2.1 enables a scale-out storage architecture to accelerate performance, power, and flexibility of OpenDrives’ storage lineup, including the recently released Ultra Hardware series. Customers are now able to overcome significant constraints within key functional areas, such as scalability, operational management, performance analytics, and service availability. 

“Many people think of storage as purely hardware. While it underpins the processes and interconnections within a storage solution, it’s the software that drives true performance,” said Sean Lee, Chief Product and Strategy Officer at OpenDrives. “Debuting Atlas 2.1 is a significant step towards more fully software-defined storage solutions. We’re proud to reach this milestone, scaling OpenDrives as a boutique hardware company to provide enterprise-grade customers with software that, for the first time, provides customers with the infrastructure they need to enable performance scale-out storage capabilities.”

Atlas 2.1 includes features that allow companies to massively scale outward while maintaining scale-up performance. These features include: storage clustering, distributed file systems, containerization, conditional automation, centralized management and visibility, cloud storage support, and high-availability.

Storage Clustering allows individual scale-up devices, or nodes, to be aggregated together forming a cluster. This parallel distributed architecture enables balanced workloads among cluster nodes without sacrificing performance hits such as increased latency.

Containerization brings functions such as compute and the application itself closer to where the data resides in our storage. While many vendors commonly approach containerization from the compute side,
