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.

  • Storage analytics: How they can boost your user satisfaction

    Often times unfortunately, the constant innovation of storage infrastructure creates a specialization barrier which can make sharing information with other parts of the business nearly impossible.

    But in reality, simply putting the right tools to use can quickly remove this barrier and provide you end-to-end visibility.

    In this research content from the Aberdeen Group, learn how providing use tools designed for real-time visibility can help prevent problems, boost performance, increase user satisfaction, and more.

  • Leveraging HPC and ANSYS to accelerate CAE

    From concept to reality, simulation provides a fast and efficient information-based development process. However, most companies that leverage computer-aided engineering (CAE) fail to realize its full benefits. The primary reason: lackluster compute performance.

    Unfortunately, some data center infrastructures cannot support a wide range of CAE applications and workloads and often create bottlenecks in getting new designs to market. So what do you do?

    In this white paper, discover how high-performance computing (HPC) and ANSYS software work together to accelerate computer-aided simulation and time-to-market while lowering TCO and reducing CAE design cycle times.

    Access now and you’ll learn best practices for building out a CAE solution leveraging ANSYS and high-performance computing infrastructure.
