Power and Simplicity: Accelerating HPC with Scale-Out Storage

SESSION: Storage III

EVENT TYPE: Exhibitor Forum

TIME: 3:30PM - 4:00PM

Presenter(s):Nick Kirsch

ROOM:280-281

ABSTRACT:
As HPC has moved to clustered servers featuring industry-standard hardware running open source or proprietary software, traditional SAN and NAS have lagged behind. Without a viable solution for their needs, HPC users have struggled with complex, homegrown storage that meets performance demands but complicates management. Today there is a new generation of scale-out storage technologies that parallel HPC's move to clustered computing by leveraging industry-standard hardware and FreeBSD-based software to create scalable HPC storage solutions. Featuring simple yet powerful data management paired with high-throughput and capacity in a single file system, scale-out storage provides HPC users with the ideal solution for high throughput, highly concurrent environments where clusters of clients require fast read/write access to large, shared pools of data. In "Power & Simplicity," Isilon Director of Product Management Nick Kirsch will detail this new generation of scale-out storage and illustrate its many compelling benefits for HPC with real-world user success.
