“DDN presents some key features of the SFA12KX such as partial rebuild and QoS for reads which are quite unique in HPC. We also discuss the latest performance results from Lustre benchmarking, particularly as they apply to awkward workloads such as seen in genomics or energy exploration, that require both streaming and transactional performance. In this talk, we present an evaluation of transactional performance and scalability in Lustre today, including random read and write performance, small file performance, and metadata performance as run on DDN SFA12KX systems.”
