THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., Nov. 9 -- Nexsan, a leading independent provider of disk-based storage systems, today announced it will showcase the new E-Series SAN and E5000 NAS products for scientific applications at SC11, the international conference for high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis. The conference, to be held in Seattle, November 14-17, 2011, will feature Nexsan's Flexible Storage Platform of products in booth #5601.
Who: Nexsan Corporation
What: Nexsan will demonstrate its latest generation of storage systems, including the E-Series and E5000 NAS storage systems for data intensive environments
When: November 14-17, 2011
Where: SC11, Washington State Convention and Trade Center, Seattle, Washington in booth #5601
Demonstrations at the conference will inclde Nexsan's E-Series SAN and E5000 NAS storage systems, both part of the Flexible Storage Platform™. E-Series storage systems offer industry-leading storage density of 54TB in 2U with the E18, and up to 180TB in 4U with the E60. Each storage system can be expanded with the E60X which delivers up to 180TBs in just 4U. E5000 NAS storage systems provide highly available storage with scalability from 8TB to 1080TB of storage capacity. Both product lines support multiple RAID sets and multiple volumes per set with full LUN security and up to 254 LUNS per system. New controller technology, available in either single or dual controller configurations, introduces up to 4GB of battery-backed cache with dual RAID engines to deliver blazing performance.
In partnership with Nexsan, USI, Scale Datacom, Strategic Hardware and Abba Technologies will join Nexsan at SC11 in support of the conference. As providers of IT services and solutions to organizations with data intensive computing requirements, these Nexsan partners understand the challenges associated with high performance computing environments. These storage solution experts will bring their experience to bear at SC11.
"In computing environments that can range from several hundred terabytes to tens of petabytes, architecting an efficient storage infrastructure results in a more productive IT environment," said Mark Tuggle with USI. "High density storage systems from Nexsan reduce data center space requirements and allow for near unlimited growth. Density combined with reliability is what our customers look for and what Nexsan is known for."
"SC11 highlights the industry's most interesting and important supercomputing technologies in support of scientific applications globally," said Victoria Grey, SVP, Marketing, Nexsan. "With a successful track record in high performance computing environments, we understand the requirements for efficient, high density storage. Our latest generation of products delivers the necessary performance, capacity and reliability for uncompromised results."
SC11, sponsored by the ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) and the IEEE Computer Society, offers a world-class technical program, a comprehensive Communities Program, and an Exhibit Hall that together showcase the latest advances in high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis that are advancing scientific discovery, research, education and commerce. This premier international conference brings together experts from around the world along with people new to the community to share knowledge and information, to form new partnerships and collaborations, and to empower the attendees to enhance their productivity.

In quieter times, sounding the bell of funding big science with big systems tends to resonate further than when ears are already burning with sour economic and national security news. For exascale's future, however, the time could be ripe to instill some sense of urgency....
In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
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 study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
