will demonstrate its new Storage Brick hardware platform -- for the
first time ever -- at Supercomputing 2005.
Storage Bricks are data servers loaded with Terrascale's TerraGrid
software. This hardware/software solution forms
virtual network disk drives that offer a single data repository (known
as a "global name space file system") up to 18 Exabytes (18 million
terabytes) in size with input/output (I/O) rates that exceed 10GBps.
This performance makes
TerraGrid-enabled Storage Bricks the fastest clustered storage solution
Previously, system architects had to choose between: (A) direct
attached storage resources (DAS or SAN) to individual computer systems
-- costly because a single copy of data could not be accessed by more
than one system;or (B) sharing data via legacy network attached storage
(NAS) protocols (for example, NFS) -- reduces costs by increasing access
but limits overall performance. By providing previously unattainable
levels of shared data throughput, TerraGrid-enabled Storage Bricks
eliminate the need to choose.
10/30/2013 | Cray, DDN, Mellanox, NetApp, ScaleMP, Supermicro, Xyratex | Creating data is easy… the challenge is getting it to the right place to make use of it. This paper discusses fresh solutions that can directly increase I/O efficiency, and the applications of these solutions to current, and new technology infrastructures.
10/01/2013 | IBM | A new trend is developing in the HPC space that is also affecting enterprise computing productivity with the arrival of “ultra-dense” hyper-scale servers.
Ken Claffey, SVP and General Manager at Xyratex, presents ClusterStor at the Vendor Showdown at ISC13 in Leipzig, Germany.
Join HPCwire Editor Nicole Hemsoth and Dr. David Bader from Georgia Tech as they take center stage on opening night at Atlanta's first Big Data Kick Off Week, filmed in front of a live audience. Nicole and David look at the evolution of HPC, today's big data challenges, discuss real world solutions, and reveal their predictions. Exactly what does the future holds for HPC?
