Slidecast: Bridging HPC and Big Data Analytics with Software Defined Storage

“IBM Spectrum Scale is a proven, scalable, high-performance data and file management solution (based upon IBM General Parallel File System or GPFS, also formerly known as code name Elastic Storage). IBM Spectrum Scale provides world-class storage management with extreme scalability, flash accelerated performance, and automatic policy-based storage tiering from flash through disk to tape. IBM Spectrum Scale reduces storage costs up to 90% while improving security and management efficiency in cloud, big data & analytics environments.”

DESY Powers Science with Elastic Storage from IBM

Today IBM announced a collaboration with Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY) in Germany to speed access to 20 GB of data/second flowing from its PETRA III accelerator, which is used by 2000 global scientists to explore the building blocks of matter. Based on the IBM Elastic Storage that powered Watson in its historic win on Jeopardy!, this Big Data architecture will speed up analysis of massive volumes of x-ray images of atom-sized particles, and can aid variety of research projects ranging from semiconductor designs to cancer therapies.
