Penn State: Increases performance 6 times and uses 90 percent less power

Cover

The Research Computing and Cyberinfrastructure (RCC) group at Penn State University provides systems and services that are used extensively in computational and data-driven research and teaching by more than 5,000 faculty members and students.

They wanted to speed up their nightly backups. Despite allocating a massive number of the disks to the operation, the nightly incremental backups were still taking up to 6 hours and degrading other system operations.

This informative paper explores how this organization easily and affordably implemented a flash storage system to accelerate backup times and enhance performance. Read on to learn more.
