HPE Data Management Framework – Tiering, Organizing and Protecting your Data

In this video from ISC 2018, Mark Seamans from HPC describes how the HPE Data Management Framework optimizes data accessibility and storage resource utilization by enabling a hierarchical, tiered storage management architecture. “With HPE DMF, Data is allocated to tiers based on service level requirements defined by the administrator. For example, frequently accessed data can be placed on a flash, high-performance tier, less frequently accessed data on hard drives in a capacity tier, and archive data can be sent off to tape storage.”

HPE Teams with WekaIO for HPC and Machine Learning

In this video from the HPE booth at ISC 2018, Barbara Murphy from WekaIO describes how the company’s fast parallel file system for NVMe devices speeds HPC and Machine Learning workloads. “You invested in the best infrastructure to run your AI and data intensive applications, so don’t let data accessibility be the bottleneck to your productivity gains. To maximize your investments and resolve the GPU and CPU starvation problem, you need a shared file system that ensures data is available to the applications. WekaIO delivers all the bandwidth you need, so your applications never have to wait for data.”

One Stop Systems Showcases Composable Infrastructure for GPU Workloads at ISC 2018

In this video from ISC 2018, Jaan Mannik from One Stop Systems describes the company’s HPC systems and new composable infrastructure solutions.
