This article series is the first to explore the Seagate ClusterStor™ Secure Data Appliance, which is designed to address government and business enterprise need for collaborative and secure information sharing within a Multilevel Security (MLS) framework at Big Data and HPC Scale. Compared to prior methods, this provides vast cost savings in reduced capital equipment and networks as well as reduced operational complexity, floor space, weight, power, and cooling while satisfying today’s requirements for performance, collaborative secure data sharing, and availability.
As a reminder, the Stanford HPC Conference takes place next week, February 2-3, at Stanford, California. Hosted by the HPC Advisory Council, the conference will focus on High-Performance Computing (HPC) usage models and benefits, the future of supercomputing, latest technology developments, best practices and advanced HPC topics. In addition, there will be a strong focus on […]
“By working with ThinkParQ, we have been able to leverage one of the best and highest performance storage systems for scale-out deployment,” said Dr. Joseph Landman, CEO of Scalable Informatics. “When testing a write-dominated workload using fio, IOR, and io-bm,a single rack of FastPath Unison with BeeGFS running on spinning disks sustained in excess of 40GB/s for multi-terabyte sized writes,far outside of cache. This level of performance comes from the combination of FastPath Unison hardware design, the Scalable Informatics Operating System (SIOS), and the excellent BeeGFS filesystem.”
