Dot Hill to Showcase AssuredSAN Ultra48 for HPC at ISC’14

June 19, 2014

LONDON, England, June 19 — Dot Hill Systems Corp., a trusted supplier of innovative, enterprise-class storage systems, today announced it will showcase the industry’s first 2U 48 device storage system, the AssuredSAN Ultra48, for high performance computing at the E4 Computer Engineering booth (number 363) of the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC’14) in Leipzig, Germany this week.

With high performance at their core, Dot Hill’s AssuredSAN products are designed to optimize randomized sequential workloads. AssuredSAN Ultra 48 arrays provides class leading performance in the industry’s only 2U 48 device configuration and are built to recognize and process multiple data streams at near real-time rates, delivering predictable high performance and reliability. Users can be confident they have access to data when they need it: taking the stress out of processing vast amounts of data from a multitude of sources for Big Data analysis, making it ideal for even the most demanding sectors.

Dot Hill’s storage portfolio is perfectly positioned for high performance computing applications and is featured at the ISC event, which showcases the latest developments in this industry sector. Throughout the conference, discussions will focus on the future of high performance computing technologies and their real-world value, life science applications, Big Data and quantum computing.

Dot Hill storage solutions are implemented in high performance computing environments the world over, including Italy’s Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN). Partnering with leading manufacturers, such as E4 Computer Engineering SpA, Dot Hill designs storage solutions that address the requirements of these demanding architectures.

E4, a long time Dot Hill customer and the leading Italian provider of high performance computing environments, was one of only 14 companies, and the only IT company to be recognized in 2013 with the INFN Recognition of Excellence award. In its ISC’14 exhibit at Booth 363, E4 will be demonstrating its new appliance for the Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre software, which is being marketed with Dot Hill storage solutions.

Cosimo Gianfreda CTO, E4 Computer Engineering, said: “Dot Hill high-bandwidth storage solutions are so reliable and efficient that they are our best choice to feature in our OEM appliance for Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre software. The E4L01 appliance is designed to meet the strict requirements of the scientific environments in which our customers operate. We need high performance combined with ease of use to deliver a solution that can be used in a number of applications, ranging from life sciences, to seismology, to big data; Dot Hill’s AssuredSAN series perfectly matches our needs. Customers have responded enthusiastically to the E4L01 solution and we are excited to present it at ISC’14.”

“Dot Hill’s suite of products is perfectly suited to high performance computing environments,” said Joe Swanson, vice president of marketing and business development, Dot Hill Systems. “Our AssuredSAN Product family, including the AssuredSAN Pro 5000 real-time tiering solutions and our new, wicked-fast AssuredSAN 4004 Series, offer superior performance that help our partners achieve faster breakthroughs in research, analytics, genomics and more.”

AssuredSAN 4004 Series: High Performance and Data Availability that HPC Customers Need

All Dot Hill AssuredSAN 4004 solutions, including the new Ultra 48, are built using the company’s proven RAID architecture, which delivers up to 100,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS) from disk, sustained sequential read performance of up to 6400 MB/second and writes of up to 5300 MB/second. The Dot Hill RAID Companion Processor (RCP) allows 4004 solutions to deliver dramatic performance gains at very aggressive price points. AssuredSAN 4004 solutions also integrate all the performance tuning and optimizations of previous-generation AssuredSAN 4000 models, which include streaming performance optimization to handle randomized, sequential workloads. Dot Hill’s latest firmware utilizes a proprietary Adaptive Read-Ahead Algorithm that analyzes workloads and fine tunes options to optimize performance specific to demanding workloads, delivering better response times and meeting IT service level agreements.

AssuredSAN 5000 Pro Series: Seriously Smart, Real-Time Tiered Storage for HPC

The AssuredSAN Pro 5000 Series takes tiered storage to a new level — beyond competitors’ batch migration schemes and into a new era of autonomic, real-time data tiering. The AssuredSAN Pro 5000 automatically manages “hot” and “cold” data in real-time to deliver storage performance when it’s needed most. Powered by Dot Hill RealStor technology, the AssuredSAN Pro 5000 responds minute-by-minute to changes in data requirements, moving the most heavily accessed data up to the SSD tier, while detecting less active data and moving it to a lower tier. This data migration happens in real-time, without policy setting and human intervention.

About Dot Hill

Leveraging its proprietary Assured family of storage solutions, Dot Hill solves many of today’s most challenging storage problems – helping IT to improve performance, increase availability, simplify operations, and reduce costs. Dot Hill’s solutions combine breakthrough software with the industry’s most flexible and extensive hardware platform and automated management to deliver best-in-class solutions.
