Scale-out storage overcomes HPC systems' data clog: Here's how

In high performance computing (HPC), the efficient delivery of data to and from compute nodes is critical—but often complicated to execute. Because data in HPC systems is generated at such an accelerated rate, it often clogs storage components—resulting in major bottlenecks.

As data capacity increases, boosting storage throughput and scalability to support HPC requires a great deal of planning and configuration.

Discover how to deliver the high performance and availability your HPC system craves by deploying a high-throughput, scale-out storage appliance.

Download this paper to simplify storage hardware monitoring, and scale capacity as data requires, with an HPC open source parallel file system, and more.
