ThinkParQ and Eduline Accelerates Yeditepe University with BeeGFS

June 22, 2021

KAISERSLAUTERN, Germany, June 22, 2021 — ThinkParQ, the company behind a leading parallel file system BeeGFS, is pleased to announce the recent installation of BeeGFS at Yeditepe University in Istanbul, Turkey.

With the ease of use, speed, and scalability of BeeGFS, Yeditepe University’s Material Science and Nontechnology Engineering department experience the benefits of their recent BeeGFS deployment.

“As an end-user of BeeGFS we found this solution is more controllable and scalable compared to other parallel filesystems”. Said Dr. Taner Akbay, Professor, Yeditepe University “I am very impressed with how BeeGFS just operates transparently in the background. We submit a job, and it immediately starts without delay, and due to BeeGFS capabilities we can immediately see the output of the files being written in our local working directory”.

Since early Spring 2021, the department started live production with their cluster driven by BeeGFS. The system, deployed by Eduline, ThinkParQ’s local partner in Istanbul, worked closely with Yeditepe University to provide a turnkey solution that delivered what the customer required; a solution that was easy to use and manage, that also provide a scalability pathway so it could grow with them.

The cluster at Yeditepe University is made up of 1 head node, 7 compute nodes, each has dual CPU’s of 24, each node has 48 cores and 2 storage nodes, all with an InfiniBand interconnect. On the two storage nodes, BeeGFS is installed in buddy mirror, metadata on PCIe NVMe disks, and storage targets on spinning disks. Whilst Eduline deployed the solution, their team of BeeGFS certified engineers continues to provide 1st and 2nd level support to Yeditepe University whilst 3rd level support is carried out by ThinkParQ.

“Eduline has been delivering HPC solutions in Turkey for over 15 years now. Previously we represented other file systems, however, due to recent changes in the market and the ongoing demand for BeeGFS, we switched our offerings to BeeGFS.” Said Zehra Durmus, Solution Consultant, Eduline.

Celebrating Yeditepe University’s 25th Anniversary in 2021, the Materials Science and Nanotechnology Engineering department’s goal is to contribute to the education of qualified engineers especially in the new era of nanotechnology where there is a need for high-quality education and training as well as research.
