Managing Your Data Explosion

As high performance computing (HPC) environments, universities, and research organizations continually tests the limits of technology and require peak performance from their equipment, the volume of data created each day will continue to grow exponentially over time. It is essential for these organizations to consider future needs when examining storage options. Short-term fixes to store and manage data are appealing due to their low entry-point, but often worsen long-term storage challenges associated with performance, scalability, cost, and floor space. A future-looking data storage solution for HPC requires:

  1. A multi-tier architecture to disk, tape, and cloud
  • Fully integrated clients that are easy to use and support the seamless transfer, sharing and publication of very large data sets from online, nearline and offline storage across diverse sites and systems
  • The capability to plan for growth, scale incrementally, and span the entire data lifecycle

This presentation will go over the advantages of a fully integrated multi-tier HPC data storage architecture and how these types of solutions help organizations dealing with massive storage management push the boundaries of their operational objectives, providing cost-effective storage that meets all of their performance, growth, and environmental needs.
