The file system cache of the Oakforest-PACS comprises 25 DDN IME14KX® systems. One DDN IME14KX has 48 x 800GB NVMe SSDs and eight Intel® Omni-Path ports. The 25 DDN IME14KX systems provide a cache of 960 TB and a logical bandwidth of 1.5 TB per second within a space as small as 100 rack units, which is about 2 ½ data center racks. This is one-tenth to one one-hundredth the amount of equipment required to support other current TB/s file systems.
“We are very excited to work with JCAHPC and Fujitsu Limited on innovative, next-generation flash-based storage technologies for scientific computing and big data, and we regard the Oakforest-PACS project as a true partnership between users and suppliers that will advance the way we think about data and storage in high-performance computing,” said Robert Triendl, senior vice president of global sales, marketing and field services, DDN.
