Xyratex Acquired – What Does the Future Hold for Lustre?


“At this point, I think it actually really makes sense for the community as a whole to fork Lustre, rename it OpenSFS, remove all the branding IP, and make it GPL/MIT/BSD licensed. Have OpenSFS own the copyrights/IP, have vendors sign up to support it. Sort of like the Linux foundation. And what CentOS does with RedHat.”

Slidecast: Introducing the Terascala Intelligent Storage Bridge


“HPC workflows are most efficient when researchers have the data they need, when the need it. The Intelligent Storage Bridge acts like an air traffic controller, automatically moving large data sets on and of scratch using the maximum available network, compute, and storage resources.”

OLCF’s Spider II File System


“Once in production we will be providing OLCF users with more than 1 terabyte per second file system performance at the top end,” said Sarp Oral, the task lead for File and Storage Systems projects in the Technology Integration Group, within the National Center for Computational Sciences (NCCS). “At that speed we expect Spider II to be safely in league with the top three parallel file systems in the world.”

Stockyard Corrals Big Data at TACC


“At SC13, TACC introduced Stockyard, a new global file system with 20 petabytes of storage; Maverick, our new data analysis and visualization system to be deployed in January 2014; and Wrangler, an innovative data resource to be deployed in January 2015.”

Aeon Computing Ties HPC All Together at SC13


Aeon Computing was recently selected by the San Diego Supercomputer Center to build and deploy a 7 PetabyteLustre parallel file system as part of the new petascale-level Comet supercomputer. The performance of the 7 PB (Petabyte) filesystem will exceed 200 Gigabytes per second.
