Improving Lustre OST Performance with ClusterStor GridRAID

In this video from the 2014 HPCAC Stanford HPC & Exascale Conference, John Fragalla from Xyratex presents: Improving Lustre OST Performance with ClusterStor GridRAID.

HPC storage solutions relying on RAID 6 data protection experience Lustre OST degradations and reduced filesystem performance, including potential data loss, during drive failures, rebuilds, and recoveries. ClusterStor GridRAID delivers up to 400% faster drive rebuild times, mitigates drive failures, increases system resiliency, reduces data loss, and maintains peak HPC application performance.”
