RAID No More: GPUs Power NSULATE for Extreme HPC Data Protection

In this video from GTC 2018, Alexander St . John from Nyriad demonstrates how the company’s NSULATE software running on Advanced HPC gear provides extreme data protection for HPC data. As we watch, he removes a dozen SSDs from a live filesystem — and it keeps on running!

GPU-accelerated Storage System goes “Beyond RAID”

Today Nyriad and Advanced HPC announce their partnership for a new NVIDIA GPU-accelerated storage system that achieves data protection levels well beyond any RAID solution. “Nyriad and Advanced HPC have brought together a hardware and software reference implementation around a GPU to mitigate rebuild times, enable large-scale RAID systems to run at full speed while degraded, reduce failures, and increase overall reliability, said Christopher M. Sullivan, Assistant Director for Biocomputing at Oregon State University’s Center for Genome Research and Biocomputing (CGRB). “We look forward to their continued technology support and innovative approach that keeps CGRB at the forefront of computational research groups.”

Radio Free HPC Looks at Why We Need Declustered RAID

In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team looks at the coming wave of declustered RAID solutions designed to address the problem of ever-increasing RAID rebuild times. With 5 Terabyte and larger drives in the wings, RAID cluster rebuild times are becoming impractical.
