Storage for High-performance Computing

Storage for High-performance Computing

The storage and server cluster installed at The University of Texas at Austin is a lesson in how to do HPC. Storage requirements for HPC go beyond massive capacity, and include the use of high-performance file systems. Farber is looking at ways to identify specific faces and images from a massive amount of unstructured data and images. To do that, he has used a high-performance computing (HPC) and storage environment located at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at The University of Texas (UT) at Austin. Because of the amount and different kinds of data generated by HPC, storage must be carefully tailored to the unique requirements of an HPC infrastructure.
