The Importance of Very Fast, Highly Scalable Storage for Today’s HPC

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.

  • The Future of Enterprise Storage: Software-Defined, Storage-as-a-Service Recorded: May 19 2016 47 mins
    Doug Jury, VP Solution Sales & Bob Sarubbi, VP North American Sales, Zadara Storage; Bill Dollan, Business Dev Manager, Intel
    For decades, large array vendors dominated the storage industry. However, over time, the industry began moving to more flexible virtualized and eventually cloud-based resources. Software Defined Infrastructures have enabled an entirely new set of options for pay-as-you-go IT resources. Industry analysts show a clear and consistent transition away from older CapEx storage to OpEx-based Storage-as-a-Service.

    One of the most critical elements that companies wrestle with when moving from traditional storage to an as-a-service model is whether they will sacrifice functionality for economic and flexibility benefits. Zadara Storage, by working closely with Intel, has developed “Enterprise” Storage-as-a-Service, providing IT professionals with the same level of enterprise-grade storage that they have used for years, but with the flexibility and economic benefits of cloud-based solutions. The storage is available “anywhere” – in the cloud, on-premise or in hybrid configurations.

    Further, by leveraging the fundamental elements of Software Defined Infrastructures and cloud-based technology, Zadara can offer greater business continuity, disaster recovery, security and other advanced storage features than previously offered by the traditional vendors.
