In this video from the DDN User Meeting at SC13, Jean-Luc Chatelain describes the company’s recent technology announcements including the SFA 12KX storage device, the WOS Bridge Cloud Connector, and the Infinite Memory Engine architecture for Exascale computing.
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.”
DDN will host it’s annual SC’13 User Meeting in Denver on Monday, Nov. 18.
Today DataDirect Networks announced that Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) has selected DDN high-performance storage to support its Institutional Computing program.
Today Micron Technology announced plans to adapt its Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) for petascale supercomputer systems.
This week the Active Archive Alliance announced record growth, underscoring the increasing demand for active archives for long-term data storage.
Today Cray introduced an open storage archiving solution for Big Data and supercomputing with the launch of Cray Tiered Adaptive Storage (TAS).
George Crump writes that three key factors are making tape an attractive, viable alternative for production use cases today. As we describe in our article “What is LTFS?”, LTFS turns tape into a mountable file system. In loose terms you can think of it as a USB hard drive, just with a lot more capacity and in a form factor that’s safe to ship around the world. Solutions like those from CrossRoads Systems, IBM, Quantum, etc. all bring LTFS to libraries and add a NAS front end.
