Today Xyratex announced that its new ClusterStor 1500 solution has been selected by Rutgers University to support its growing HPC needs.

We chose the ClusterStor 1500 by Xyratex for its new HPC cluster, an Intel-based system using Infiniband, because it is a cost-effective, high-performing system from a vendor with significant experience implementing and supporting such systems,” said Don Smith, CIO of Rutgers University.

Launched in May, the ClusterStor 1500 is the newest member of the ClusterStor family of scale-out HPC storage solutions that delivers break-through industry performance and efficiency. Available through Xyratex’s network of partners, ClusterStor 1500 features include:

  • A unique architecture that brings together what were previously discrete server, network and storage platforms with their own separate software layers into a single integrated, modular, scale-out storage building block. This innovative approach enables the system to scale both performance and capacity while reducing administrative overhead.
  • Reduced hardware complexity with increased reliability, availability and serviceability.
  • The ability to scale performance from 1.25GB/s to 110GB/s and raw capacity from 42TB to 7.3PB.
  • The Lustre file system, the industry’s most scalable and proven high performance open source parallel file system.
  • Simplified deployment in hours, not weeks, allowing users to be productive and realize the value from their investment immediately.
  • Proactive and comprehensive storage solution support, including assistance with setup, installation and performance optimization.
  • ClusterStor Manager, a comprehensive system management application that consolidates management of the entire storage cluster infrastructure, RAID data protection layer, operating system and Lustre into a single-pane-of-glass, easy-to-use administrator interface.
