New Generation of Lustre* Expands HPC Into Commercial Enterprise

We are sorry, This PDF is available in download format only

Not so long ago, storage for high performance computing (HPC) meant complexity and massive data sets, and was the concern of only a small group of computer users. Superscale computing was the province of government-sponsored research in national labs, data-intensive simulations for weather forecasting and climate modeling, or certain information-intense industries, such as defense, aeronautics, and oil and gas. Today, HPC is undergoing democratization: Extracting knowledge and information from ever-expanding flows of data is now seen to be a key source of competitive advantage for modern businesses of any size. Enterprises of all kinds now generate huge volumes of data. They rely on high-performance data processing applications to analyze and derive value from their data flows. They require a storage infrastructure that can scale endlessly and deliver large volume I/O for high-throughput data processing.
