Overcoming the HPC Storage Road Blocks


High performance computing (HPC) environments have embraced scale-out server architectures to be able to deliver better, more accurate results in less time. The pressure is on to research even more, with increased accuracy and in less time. The supporting storage architecture is a key roadblock to this objective.

In this webinar, George Crump, Lead Analyst at Storage Switzerland and Tom Sherman from Cray will discuss what makes up this roadblock and provide solutions to overcome it.
