In this video, Mootaz Elnozahy from KAUST discusses the arrival of the Shaheen II supercomputer. Some 25 times more powerful than its predecessor, Shaheen II is a Cray XC40 system with DataWarp burst buffer technology, a Cray Sonexion 2000 storage system, and a Cray Tiered Adaptive Storage (TAS) system.

Saudi Arabia-based King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), a public research university based in Saudi Arabia, uses the Cray Sonexion storage solution as part of its high performance computing and computational research aimed at solving the world’s biggest water, food, energy and environmental challenges. Seagate’s ClusterStor Engineered Solution for Lustre is part of the Cray Sonexion 2000 system, providing KAUST with a scalable platform to support its large array of research applications.
