Today, data drives discovery. And discoveries create are key to creating sustained advantages. The better your critical workflows are able to create and access data – the better you’ll be able to discover new, innovative solutions to important problems, or to create entirely new products. More than ever before, data intensive applications need the sustained performance and virtually unlimited scalability that only parallel storage software delivers.
Designed for maximum performance and scale, storage solutions powered by Lustre software deliver the performance at scale to meet today’s storage requirements. As the most widely used parallel storage system for HPC, Lustre-powered storage is the ideal storage foundation.
But scalable performance storage by itself only solves half the problem. Today’s users expect storage solutions that deliver sustained performance, scale upward to near limitless capacities, and are simple to install and manage. Intel(r) Enterprise Edition for Lustre* software combines the straight line speed and scale of Lustre with the bottom line need for lowered management complexity and cost.
As the recognized leaders in the development and support of the Lustre file system, Intel has the expertise to make storage solutions for data intensive applications faster, smarter and easier.
