In this video from SC15, Larry Jones from Seagate provides an overview of the company’s revamped HPC storage product line, including a new 10,000 RPM ClusterStor hard disk drive tailor-made for the HPC market. “ClusterStor integrates the latest in Big Data technologies to deliver class-leading ingest speeds, massively scalable capacities to more than 100PB and the ability to handle a variety of mixed workloads.”
Today ArcaStream and General Atomics introduced Ngenea, the world’s first data-aware cloud storage gateway. Ready for quick deployment, Ngenea seamlessly integrates with popular cloud and object storage providers such as Amazon S3, Google GCS, Scality, Cleversafe and Swift and is optimized for data-intensive workflows in life science, education, research, and oil and gas exploration.
Today Seagate announced it is integrating IBM Spectrum Scale software, based upon GPFS technology, with its ClusterStor HPC storage to deliver a new software defined storage appliance. The new appliance will help users manage the demands of data-intensive workloads, such as genomic research, computer aided design, digital media, data analytics, financial model analysis and electronic design simulations.
“IBM Spectrum Scale is a proven, scalable, high-performance data and file management solution (based upon IBM General Parallel File System or GPFS, also formerly known as code name Elastic Storage). IBM Spectrum Scale provides world-class storage management with extreme scalability, flash accelerated performance, and automatic policy-based storage tiering from flash through disk to tape. IBM Spectrum Scale reduces storage costs up to 90% while improving security and management efficiency in cloud, big data & analytics environments.”
“I came to IBM via the acquisition of Platform Computing. There’s also been other IBM assets around HPC, namely GPFS. What’s been the evolution of those items as well and how they really come together under this concept of software-defined infrastructure, and how we’re now taking these capabilities and expanding them into other initiatives that have sort of bled into the HPC space.”
“High performance computing is critical in commercial markets, spanning a wide range of applications across multiple industries, and this trend is only growing. The GS7K from DDN will help bring the latest high-performance storage technologies to more of these markets, connecting companies to their next innovations faster while satisfying their enterprise standards.”
