Why you can save money by being left behind

In this special guest feature, Dr Rosemary Francis from Ellexus writes that Data Storage needs to be integral to your plans when moving HPC workloads to the Cloud. We can all admit to being pressured into investing in a new solution as soon as it becomes available. We want to be the fastest, the best-informed, […]

Spectra BlackPearl Offers Direct Archive to AWS

Private cloud storage enabled by BlackPearl provides the best option for balancing performance and cost; however, some customer workflows benefit greatly from incorporating a public cloud storage infrastructure,” said Matt Starr, Spectra Logic’s CTO. “Public cloud works best when a disaster recovery copy is needed; when wide data distribution is called for; to create geographic dispersion of data; and when other cloud-based features can be leveraged, such as automatic transcoding. The new Spectra hybrid storage ecosystem means that Spectra customers don’t have to choose between public and private cloud; BlackPearl brings them together seamlessly.”

Ellexus Launches Mistral Software for Balancing Shared Storage across HPC Clusters

Today Ellexus in the UK announced the release of Mistral, a “ground breaking” product for balancing shared storage across a high performance computing cluster. Developed in collaboration with ARM’s IT department, Mistral monitors application IO and cluster performance so that jobs exceeding the expected IO thresholds can be automatically identified and slowed down through IO throttling.

Video: Overcoming Storage Roadblocks in HPC Clouds

“The virtually infinite scale of cloud compute resources is now within easy reach from either existing network-attached or object-based storage. No longer is the location of your storage a roadblock to reaping the ease, timeliness, and cost offered by cloud compute services. Avere’s Enterprise Cloud Bursting solution utilizes the Virtual FXT Edge filer (vFXT) which puts high-performance, scalable NAS where you need it to enable massive compute on-demand for enterprise apps with simple installation and zero hardware maintenance. Avere makes your NAS data accessible to cloud compute without experiencing latency or requiring that your data be moved to the cloud.”
