A breadth-first look at PanFS: Key components, benefits, and more
PanFS 9: Architectural Overview
HPC environments, by their very nature, tend to be large and are usually quite complex.
Whether it’s pushing the boundaries in life and physical sciences or supporting reliable engineering, it takes many computers operating together to analyze or simulate the problems at hand.
The quantity of data required, and the access performance to keep all those computers busy, can only be met by a true parallel file system, one that maximizes the efficiency of all storage media in a seamless, total-performance storage system.
Access this e-book for an overview of the PanFS parallel file system which includes a look at its key components and main benefits.
