Overview

Leadership in High Performance Scale-Out Storage

High-performance computing (HPC) and the closely related field of Big Data analytics are rapidly becoming a competitive business necessity far beyond their laboratory-based heritage. Organizations in all market sectors - both research and commercial - are now treating the ability to optimize the data-to-value cycle as a core competency which is in turn fueling a desire to acquire, refine and preserve data for both near term and future value mining activities.

SGI has a legacy of leadership in both designing and delivering enterprise-class storage in support of some of the most demanding compute environments in the world. Lustre has emerged as the dominant storage solution for HPC - and it is rapidly gaining interest from users of both Hadoop and shared memory environments as the storage foundation of high-performance analytics environments that can leverage multiple classes of data analysis techniques.

SGI's Lustre-based family of products includes world-class Lustre software, high-performance storage hardware and the SGI DMF for Lustre storage virtualization platform which can extend Lustre systems to almost limitless levels of capacity while minimizing total cost of ownership (TCO). The result is a range of Lustre-based storage solutions that provide the HPC community's highest levels of scalability, performance and reliability.
