BOSTON, Dec. 12 – Terascala, the Fast Data company, today announced that it has joined the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) Private Sector Program to extend the development and capabilities of Lustre, one of the industry’s most widely deployed open source parallel file systems. Terascala will provide storage hardware, engineering support, and hands-on training as a member of NCSA’s Private Sector Program, which helps companies leverage high-performance computing (HPC) to improve their modeling and simulation efforts and enhance competitiveness.
Terascala storage appliances are pre-configured with Lustre and remove I/O bottlenecks in simulation, analysis, and modeling environments, dramatically accelerating the time to insight for research and engineering organizations. “Scientific computing customers require the fastest throughput available to enable their research and analysis to complete as quickly as possible,” said Steve Butler, CEO, Terascala. “Terascala will work with NCSA to understand their application environments and to leverage the collective Lustre skill set, ultimately driving improvements that will speed the digital manufacturing process.”
“Increasingly manufacturers rely more on digital modeling and prototyping to quicken the pace of product development, and we want to be sure these tools are within reach of our partners, regardless of company size,” said Merle Giles, NCSA’s director of business and economic development. “Terascala’s membership and resource commitment will benefit digital manufacturing in the areas of high-performance throughput and parallel file system management, and we’re pleased to welcome them as a new member of the Private Sector Program.”
In addition to Lustre, Terascala storage appliances include tools for high availability, system monitoring, health check and break/fix; event logging and alerts; application tuning; and workflow. For more information, download this white paper by Terascala on Improving Application Performance.
The National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), located at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, provides powerful computers and expert support that help thousands of scientists and engineers across the country improve our world.
Terascala is the Fast Data Company. Terascala’s LustreStack software suite enables storage providers to offer Lustre-based storage appliances that are simple to deploy, easy to use, and optimally tune. With LustreStack-powered storage appliances, organizations can optimize the performance of HPC and Fast Data applications without requiring specialized expertise or compromising on system availability or performance. Terascala appliances are available from Dell, EMC, and NetApp.
