Expert Insight: HPC Uses, Storage Requirements, and Backup Tips
Although high performance computing (HPC) systems have unique data analysis capabilities, they also have complex storage requirements that IT professionals must address. This expert e-guide discusses the primary uses for HPC and explains why many existing storage technologies are not well suited to support this type of environment.
Discover how scale-out storage can overcome the limitations of traditional alternatives and find out why the following steps are essential when tweaking data backups in OneFS-based HPC systems:
- Configure network data management protocol (NDMP) backups to shorten data paths
- Use an indirect NDMP backup topology if the direct method is not feasible
- Implement an archiving tool to avoid backing up the same data repeatedly
- And more
