Unleashing the Power of Parallel Storage

Hadoop Cluster

From Wall Street to the Great Wall, enterprises and institutions of all sizes are faced with the benefits – and challenges – promised by ‘Big Data’. But before users can take advantage of the near limitless potential locked within their data, they must have affordable, scalable and powerful software tools to manage the data.

Fifteen years ago, the HPC community began developing a super fast and highly scalable parallel file system in response to the limitations of NFS. Called Lustre, it is the dominant file system technology now in use at half of the top 100 supercomputer installations worldwide (top500.org).

Virtualization in the Cloud

HPC Cloud

One of the best ways to realize the full performance benefits of virtualization is to make it available through a private cloud. The VMware vCloud Suite realizes operational efficiency through policy-driven operations. By providing simplified operations management, the cloud solution drives greater resource utilization and staff productivity.
