DDN Leads HPC Storage Market and IO500 List

Today DDN announced it has captured the number-one spot in the IO500 10-node benchmark, announced today by the Virtual Institute for IO at ISC in Frankfurt, Germany. In addition to the top spot, DDN ranked in three of the top five system results. DDN was also a part of a notable submission working with Google to introduce the first IO500 submission run in public cloud with EXAScaler. Additionally, DDN was recognized this week as the leading storage supplier to HPC in Intersect360’s HPC User Site Census.

Report: Machine Learning Workloads Bolstering HPC Market

Intersect360 Research has completed its market sizing and new five-year forecast for the High Performance Computing industry. “AI workloads are sweeping through all types of enterprises and research, which is affecting both the HPC and Hyperscale markets.
