At this year’s International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC17) in Denver, Colorado, DDN once again demonstrated our innovation and HPC storage leadership, showcasing our latest storage solutions.

New solutions available from DDN include an entry-level burst buffer appliance (IME140) for cost-effective I/O acceleration, next-generation monitoring software (DDN Insight), and declustered RAID (SFA Declustered RAID “DCR”) for increased data protection in massive storage pools. DDN also announced recent HPC customer wins in some of the world’s largest supercomputing centers. In addition to solution demonstrations, DDN annonced new  use cases including Pawsey Supercomputing Centre and University of Tennessee Chattanooga.

Congratulations JCAHPC!

Revealed at SC17, the IO500 features I/O benchmarks that allow comparison of storage systems and is similar in concept to the Top500 for computing systems. Storage systems are ranked according to the combination of a set of I/O benchmarks that are designed to represent a mix of applications and real-world workloads. JCAHPC’s IME deployment now takes the #1 position, ahead of all other file system and burst buffer solutions.

We are very pleased to finally have a benchmark suite that is accepted industry wide and reflects the kinds of workloads found within our most data-intensive customer environments. Even more exciting is the fact that our customer, JCAHPC, achieved this top honor utilizing DDN’s IME flash cache. This recognition is validation that IME is delivering the type of I/O acceleration gains for which it was designed.
