CEA in France Upgrades Storage to DDN SFA14KE

Today DDN announced that the French CEA has selected DDN’s SFA14KE as the core storage for this year’s comprehensive refresh of the agency’s data management infrastructure, “GS1K”.

Seagate SSDs Boost Analytics on Comet Supercomputer

The San Diego Supercomputer Center is adding 800GB Seagate SAS SSDs to significantly boost the data analytics capability of its Comet supercomputer. To expand its node-local storage capacity for data-intensive workloads, device pairs will be added to all 72 compute nodes in one rack of Comet, alongside the existing SSDs. This will bring the flash storage in a single node to almost 2TB, with total rack capacity at more than 138TB.
