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.”

Seagate Launches Government Solutions Group


Today Seagate announced the formation of Seagate Government Solutions, a new U.S.-based business entity dedicated to helping address the growing data-management needs of government agencies.

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.

Seagate HPC User Group Returns to SC15 in Austin


Seagate will hosts its annual HPC User Group at SC15 on Monday, Nov 16 from 4:00pm – 7:00pm at the JW Marriott in Austin. “You don’t want to miss what our speakers have to say – it could change the way you do things (not to mention the fact that you’ll walk away with the most talked-about consumer hard drive on the market – the Seagate Seven).”

Seagate Acquires Dot Hill Systems


Today Seagate Technology announced it has completed its previously announced acquisition of Dot Hill Systems, makers of innovative software and hardware storage systems.

Seagate to Lead Sage Storage Project for Exascale Horizon 2020


“We are excited that the H2020 SAGE Project gives us the opportunity to research and move HPC storage into the Exascale age,” said Ken Claffey, vice president and general manager, Seagate HPC systems business. “Seagate will contribute its unique skills and device technology to address the convergence of Exascale and Big Data, with an excellent selection of participants each bringing their own capabilities together to build the future of storage on an unprecedented scale.”

Video: On the Role of Flash in Large-Scale Storage Systems


Nathan Rutman from Seagate presented this talk at the LAD’15 Conference. “So why is a spinning disk company talking about Flash? Last year, Seagate acquired Avago LSI’s flash division. We now have an array of flash-based storage. So I have nothing against Flash. This presentation is really on: Where does Flash make sense? I also have a personal agenda because I hate the term “Burst Buffer.” Everyone says “Burst Buffer” instead of saying “Flash.” It drives me crazy. So I’m going to explain what a Burst Buffer is and what it is not.”

Seagate & Micron Develop Enterprise SSD


“The framework established between Seagate and Micron has led to the development and production of this next-generation, high-capacity SAS SSD platform. It is the first 12 gigabits-per-second (Gb/s) SAS device to optimize dual channel throughput with up to 1800 megabytes-per-second (MB/s) sequential reads and offer multiple endurance choices within a single hardware and firmware design. These advantages engineered for the 1200.2 SAS SSD ensure it will deliver ultra-fast performance to match the needs of specific enterprise applications and workloads.”

Video: Seagate Teams with HP for ClusterStor


“At ISC 2015, Seagate announced that the company has extended its alliance agreement with computing leader HP to equip its high performance computing solutions with ClusterStor scale-out storage capabilities. Building on a proven partnership, HP will resell Seagate’s ClusterStor 1500 and 9000 appliances along with its HPC solutions. This partnership will support HP’s Apollo portfolio of products and services, which manage HPC workloads in complex computing environments.”
