AUSTIN, Texas, and FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Nov. 20 -- DataCore, the leading provider of storage virtualization software, and Promise Technology Inc., a leading supplier of sophisticated RAID subsystems for enterprise and SMB customers, have partnered together at the Supercomputing 2008 (SC08) conference, taking place this week at the Austin Convention Center. "Everything here is about ultra high-performance computing," said James Price III, vice president of Channel Sales at DataCore. "We are demonstrating DataCore's high-performance SANsymphony storage virtualization solution paired with Promise Technology's VTrak E-Class external storage solution, with Microsoft Windows Server 2008 HPC cluster -- to bring an optimal solution for today's supercomputing needs."
DataCore and Promise = Cost-Effective, High-Performance Storage Solutions
DataCore and Promise Technology are running in conjunction to showcase a real-world, fully functional, fault-tolerant SAN demonstration. "We are excited to feature DataCore's SANsymphony solution with us in our booth at SC08," said Keith Parker, senior marketing manager of Promise Technology. "Together, DataCore and Promise Technology offer a solution that is ideally suited to high-performance computing environments."
Next Generation Grid N+1 Storage Scalability and I/O Acceleration
DataCore's SANsymphony software addresses larger scale, heterogeneous storage virtualization needs through sophisticated I/O performance acceleration and caching as well as its Grid style, N+1 network architecture. DataCore's high performance Storage virtualization delivers:
Live Demonstrations of this Multi-Vendor Configuration Are Being Showcased Throughout SC08
"In showcasing a high-availability, 8Gbps SAN demonstration, attendees are witnessing how a mosaic of best-of-breed products can be deployed to deliver the real benefits IT professionals are seeking in the context of ultra high-performance computing," commented Price. "We have been 'wowing' attendees throughout the event by featuring DataCore, Promise, and Microsoft -- delivering reliable storage efficiently as needed."
Using Virtualization to Meet Performance and Uptime Objectives
DataCore storage virtualization software solutions remove physical, geographic and device-specific restrictions of data storage equipment that frequently slow down, interrupt or endanger computer operations -- making it practical for organizations large and small to get the fullest utilization, highest availability and fastest performance from their disk storage assets by consolidating and automating essential data protection measures and storage management practices.
DataCore -- Get the fullest use, the highest availability and fastest performance
The storage infrastructure absolutely must scale smoothly and cost-effectively to deliver quicker response time in the face of more users and expanding capacity. From a storage hardware perspective, the challenge is delivering enough throughput and I/O transactions to increasingly faster servers despite disk subsystems that fall further behind each year. DataCore's answer: Put the same high-speed servers in control of your storage with portable SANsymphony software. Fully leverage the swift advancements of the latest CPU, memory and I/O technology to deliver storage performance that keeps pace with your applications -- at an affordable price.

Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...
