IDC: HPC Storage Systems Target Scalable Modular
Data-intensive computing has been an integral part of high-performance computing and other large datacenter workloads for decades, but recent developments have dramatically raised the stakes for HPC storage systems.
The storage systems of today's largest HPC systems may reach capacities of 25 to 50PB, and may feature thousands or tens of thousands of disk drives. Even in more mainstream HPC and enterprise datacenters, storage systems today may include hundreds of drives, with capacities often doubling every 2 – 3 years.
This white paper examines the size and status of the worldwide market for high-performance computing storage systems, along with evolutionary trends affecting this market. Read now to learn more.
