Want to Boost HPC Performance? Adding Disks is Not the Answer

Oct 20, 2014 |

These days storage is in the HPC spotlight. How well an HPC application performs relies not only on total system memory bandwidth and sustained floating point operations per second, but also on a storage architecture that supports sufficient throughput to handle constantly increasing amounts of data. The key to storage performance is not capacity – Read more…

Leveraging Cloud on Your Own Terms

Sep 15, 2014 |

Many IT organizations are seeking a new approach to the data management challenges presented when using multiple clouds. In particular, they want an approach that allows them to leverage public cloud economics while maintaining control of their data. NetApp offers a new approach to hybrid IT by using dedicated, secure, private storage with low-latency access Read more…

DDN’s IME Software Scales I/O Performance on the Rocky Road to Exascale

Aug 28, 2014 |

Exascale, once just a gleam in the eyes of a few prescient computer scientists, is beginning to take shape. That arbitrary date of 2018 for a thousand-fold increase in computing power no longer seems far fetched. But as exascale comes into focus, some very specific roadblocks are being resolved and storage is one of them. Read more…
