DDN Reports Growing Momentum Leading into SC15


Today DDN announced the highest bookings quarter in the company’s history with double-digit year-over-year growth.

CEA in France Selects Scality for HPC Storage


Today Scality announced that company’s software-based storage for has been selected by the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) to power its HPC storage needs. Scality and CEA will work together to advance their ongoing research and development projects, as well as CEA’s own HPC contributions, including the “Lustre”, “RobinHood” and “Ganesha” software solutions, and to collaborate on an exascale project environment.

Intel to Host Lustre Vision Update at SC15


Intel will host a Lustre Vision Update in Austin at SC15. “Lustre is a key component of the Scalable System Framework which offers performance, scalability and balance for both compute and data-intensive applications – smoothing the path to Exascale and the HPC/Big Data convergence. Our vision for the future is very exciting! Join Intel’s High Performance Data Division team as we talk about where we have been and the future: where we are going, together.”

DDN User Group Coming to SC15


DataDirect Networks will host its annual DDN User Group Meeting on Monday, Nov. 16 at SC15 in Austin, Texas.

Lustre* Accelerates the Convergence of Big Data and HPC in Financial Services

HPC BIGDATA Convergence

Across industries, companies are beginning to watch the convergence of High-performance Computing (HPC) and Big Data. Many organizations in the Financial Services Industry (FSI) are running their financial simulations on business analytics systems, some on HPC clusters. But they have a growing problem: integrating analytics of non-structured data from sources like social media with their internal data. Learn how Lustre can help solves these challenges.

Bull Atos Installs Fastest Supercomputer in Croatia


Bull Atos has installed the fastest supercomputer in Croatia at the University in Rijeka. With an expected debut on the TOP500 in November, the 239 Teraflop BURA supercomputer will be used by university researchers in areas including drug discovery and genomics.

OpenSFS to Sponsor Two Lustre BoFs at SC15


OpenSFS is sponsoring two Lustre BoFs at SC15 in Austin. As a nonprofit organization, OpenSFS was founded in 2010 to advance Lustre development, ensuring it remains vendor-neutral, open, and free.

Video: Prologue O/S – Improving the Odds of Job Success


“When looking to buy a used car, you kick the tires, make sure the radio works, check underneath for leaks, etc. You should be just as careful when deciding which nodes to use to run job scripts. At the NASA Advanced Supercomputing Facility (NAS), our prologue and epilogue have grown almost into an extension of the O/S to make sure resources that are nominally capable of running jobs are, in fact, able to run the jobs. This presentation describes the issues and solutions used by the NAS for this purpose.”

Video: DDN Infinite Memory Engine IME


Tommaso Cecchi from DDN presented this talk at the HPCAC Spain Conference. “IME unleashes a new I/O provisioning paradigm. This breakthrough, software defined storage application introduces a whole new new tier of transparent, extendable, non-volatile memory (NVM), that provides game-changing latency reduction and greater bandwidth and IOPS performance for the next generation of performance hungry scientific, analytic and big data applications – all while offering significantly greater economic and operational efficiency than today’s traditional disk-based and all flash array storage approaches that are currently used to scale performance.”

Lustre Video: Robinhood v3 Policy Engine and Beyond


“The Robinhood Policy Engine is a versatile tool to manage contents of large file systems. It maintains a replicate of filesystem medatada in a database that can be queried at will. It makes it possible to schedule mass action on filesystem entries by defining attribute-based policies.”
