Truths and Myths of Automated Tiering within HPC Environments
SESSION: Storage I
EVENT TYPE: Exhibitor Forum
TIME: 10:30AM - 11:00AM
ABSTRACT: Automated tiering is defined as the ability to move data between different
types of media within a storage system. Seems simple, right? This speaker
track will take a deep dive look at automated tiering and how it fits into
HPC environments, the benefits of deploying an automated tiering solution,
and the little known secrets behind the technology.
One thing that isn’t common knowledge is how an automated tiered storage
system can be used effectively for WAN optimization. HPC environments
routinely require fast access with exchange of data between locations; this
is a must when the working sets of data requirements are great.
This speaker session will unveil how automated tiering can be used to
support demanding applications within HPC infrastructures across the WAN.
