This week ThinkParQ launched BeeGFS on Demand parallel storage offering. Dubbed BeeOND, the new offering allows users with HPC clusters to generate job-dedicated parallel filesystem instances on demand.
“By working with ThinkParQ, we have been able to leverage one of the best and highest performance storage systems for scale-out deployment,” said Dr. Joseph Landman, CEO of Scalable Informatics. “When testing a write-dominated workload using fio, IOR, and io-bm,a single rack of FastPath Unison with BeeGFS running on spinning disks sustained in excess of 40GB/s for multi-terabyte sized writes,far outside of cache. This level of performance comes from the combination of FastPath Unison hardware design, the Scalable Informatics Operating System (SIOS), and the excellent BeeGFS filesystem.”
In this video, ESG Senior Analysts Mark Peters and Jason Buffington give their impressions of the recent Spectra Logic Summit and the company’s BlackPearl storage product. BlackPearl enables the use of tape to easily store massive volumes of data objects and is ideal for any compute environment that needs to store data for long periods of time.
