  • iQstor bulks up its rack-mounted SAN storage system

    The iQ5200 high-density SAN storage system, which packs 52 TB into 4U arrays and can scale to 1.56 PB, was introduced at Supercomputing '08 this week. The rack-mounted SAN storage system is aimed at small and medium-sized businesses. 

  • Supercomputer's storage chosen for density, not performance

    The performance specs on the supercomputer at Oak Ridge National Labs are eye-popping, but the storage system was chosen for space efficiency, not performance. 

  • Parallel file systems become requirement for HPC environments

    Many global parallel file systems rely on NFS for batch computing. But the NFS protocol has high overhead, which limits its use with I/O-intensive applications. For that reason, many HPC centers prefer Lustre, which provides parallel I/O to file syst...
