According to Intersect360’s HPC User Site Census, DDN is the number-one storage vendor in terms of installed systems since the beginning of 2017.

DDN’s commitment to the market is obvious in these results,” said Addison Snell, CEO, Intersect360 Research. “With their launch of EXA5, they appear well positioned to address the needs of data intensive computing organizations for both research and commercial purposes.”

DDN’s leadership was evenly distributed between sectors surveyed, being number-one in Academic, Commercial and Government deployments. In Intersect360’s report, most of the DDN systems (79% of the mentions) were for larger systems of 500TB or more. Intersect360 sees the HPC storage market as a continued growth sector, with the ability to address increasingly complex requirements that are emerging with new workloads like AI and Deep Learning.
