DDN’S IME EXCEEDS 1TB/S
FOR JAPAN’S FASTEST
SUPERCOMPUTER

Joint Center for Advanced High Performance Computing (JCAHPC)

“We are very pleased that we could achieve effective I/O performance exceeding 1 TB per second in writing tens of thousands of processes to the same file. With this new storage technology, we believe that we will be able to contribute to society with the further development of computational science, big data analysis and machine learning.”

Osamu Tatebe, JCAHPC / professor, Center for Computational Sciences, University of Tsukuba

Thanks to DDN’s IME® flash-based workflow acceleration software, researchers using Oakforest-PACS at the Joint Center for Advanced High Performance Computing (JCAHPC) are able to improve modeling of fundamental physical systems and advance understanding of requirements for Exascale-level systems architectures. With DDN’s advanced technology, JCAHPC has achieved effective I/O performance exceeding 1TB/s in writing tens of thousands of processes to the same file.
