BlueArc is presenting an early version of its parallel network file system (pNFS) standard at SC10 in New Orleans, La. from Nov. 15-18. The company is currently developing a pNFS solution that builds on the foundations of the BlueArc Mercury hybrid-core architecture and SiliconFS file system to enable multi-dimensional scalability in capacity, throughput and metadata performance for high performance computing (HPC) environments.
By introducing pNFS into the BlueArc portfolio, we are further enhancing our scale up and scale out capabilities. ‘Scale-right Storage’ from BlueArc can improve IT management’s ability to provide timely provisioning, greater resource utilization, performance, and higher levels of data and system availability without compromise,” said Bridget Warwick, senior vice president of marketing at BlueArc.
BlueArc can be found at SC10 booth 2745.
