In this video from the DDN User Meeting at SC13, Jeff Denworth presents a Product Update. The company’s recent technology announcements include the SFA 12KX storage device, the WOS Bridge Cloud Connector, and the Infinite Memory Engine architecture for Exascale computing.
As science drives a rapidly growing need for storage, existing environments face increasing pressure to expand capabilities while controlling costs. Many researchers, scientists and engineers find that they are outgrowing their current system, but fear their organizations may be too small to cover the cost and support needed for more storage. Join these experts for a lively discussion on how you can take control and solve the HPC data deluge.
In this video from SC13, Torben Kling-Petersen from Xyratex describes the company’s new Grid RAID and ClusterStor 9000 data storage technologies. Grid RAID delivers up to 400% faster drive rebuild time to repair times needed to maintain peak performance while supporting the latest high capacity drives.
With the industry’s emphasis on scalable systems for Big Data, a lot of companies are coming out with claims of faster I/O performance. What’s noteworthy about the Xyratex ClusterStor 9000 announcement is that it goes beyond a dramatic generational improvement in performance and scalability to discuss how that performance can be used effectively to streamline an enterprise’s existing workflow,” said Addison Snell, CEO of Intersect 360 Research.
“Our product innovation strategy is to deliver the industry’s leading portfolio of cloud-integrated and flash-accelerated storage and data management solutions. These solutions satisfy our customers’ needs for their multiple workloads and deployment models — either dedicated or as part of a shared infrastructure. By expanding our EF-Series all-flash arrays and E-Series platforms we are meeting growing market demand for dense, performance-oriented architectures and delivering superior performance, reliability, efficiency and scale.”
“StrongBox is a network attached storage (NAS) appliance that is purpose-built to lower the costs of long-term storage and protection for unstructured, fixed content. By pairing a flexible, policy-driven disk cache with Linear Tape File System (LTFS) technology, StrongBox empowers you to control storage costs without sacrificing data availability.”
