MASSIVELY SCALABLE, HIGH PERFORMANCE, LUSTRE FILE SYSTEM APPLIANCE

HPC applications that require massive throughput and highly parallel access are challenging traditional SAN and NAS storage technologies. Storage systems designed to serve the needs of the last 10 years are no longer able to deliver the scalable bandwidth and file system locking capabilities required by today’s HPC environments. To satisfy these requirements, an extremely high performance approach which integrates file system and storage media into one extremely high performance file storage appliance is needed. This approach would solve both today’s requirements and scale to accommodate the unpredictable growth of Big Data in the future.

EXAScaler, is a next generation parallel file storage system appliance that combines DDN award-winning HPC storage technology with the open-source Lustre File System. DDN has leveraged its leadership in supporting the world’s largest file storage systems for over a decade to combine these best of breed storage technologies into a tightly integrated, easy to use single appliance that delivers scalable, clustered storage performance. Built by the HPC experts, and supported by the world’s most skilled parallel I/O team, the EXAScaler blueprint is known worldwide as the gold standard in HPC storage clustering and powers the largest number of Top500® Supercomputer Sites, worldwide.
