Today DataDirect Networks announced that Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) has selected DDN high-performance storage to support its Institutional Computing program. Supporting over a Petaflop of computing power, the program encompasses a broad range of unclassified, collaborative scientific efforts, including the study of biology, earth science, physics, oceans and cosmology.
In supporting LANL’s broad range of scientific computing projects, it’s imperative that our scientists, researchers and colleagues have instant access to the data they need to analyze results and improve scientific outcomes, said Bob Tomlinson, institutional computing program manager at LANL. “With DDN’s high-performance storage and site-wide file system approach, LANL will be equipped to support our compute-intensive demands both now and in the future.”
LANL selected DDN Storage Fusion Architecture (SFA) high-performance storage and DDN’s EXAScaler Lustre file system appliance to meet the compute-intensive demands of 11 separate computing clusters by delivering 4.3 PBs of storage capacity and up to 40 GB/second I/O performance via the Lustre file system.
