In this video, BlueArc CTO Shmuel Shottan presents: Leveraging Hybrid-Core Architecture in Romoving Applications to Storage Bottlenecks – pNFS and Beyond. Recorded at the National HPCC Conference 2011 in Newport.
A unique NAS offload Engine Architecture has been key to leading NFS performance for most of the previous decade. As HPC applications obviously require much larger bandwidth to storage, parallel file systems have gained in popularity. This talk will discuss the applicability of an accelerated NAS Offload Engine to Parallel File Systems. We will describe the way we approached the challenge, the way we solved for bandwidth and the future enhancements we plan for.
