Architecting HPC Data Storage Solutions

Dec 19, 2011 |

Innovation has been the cornerstone of success in our heritage in the data storage industry for the last twenty-five years.   About two years ago, Xyratex initiated an investigation into additional market opportunities for enterprise class data storage solutions.  Our research yielded interesting data points that aligned with the strengths of Xyratex.  We discovered that not only was the High Performance Computing (HPC) a high growth area for storage, it also represented a dynamic market opportunity with a substantial need for better data storage design. We also learned that the way data storage was being implemented at many of these sites was unduly complicated in terms of initial installation, performance optimization and ongoing management.
