HPC Storage White Paper

Flash Acceleration of HPC Storage

Your requirements are multi-dimensional. Your data storage should be too.

Organizations are under increasing pressure to accelerate the performance of their big data and HPC workflows — while also cutting costs. Solid-state devices and other flash-based media have the potential to solve this problem, but replacing a disk drive or rotating media with solid state is expensive. There’s a better solution: flash caching, a cost-effective way to deploy solid-state storage.

Download our “Flash Acceleration of HPC” white paper to learn about ClusterStor™ NXD — a cost-effective solution for accelerating high-performance I/O — and see how it stacks up against the alternatives.

NXD includes features like:

  • Read persistence
  • Write back
  • Dynamic flush
  • Flash caching

In the white paper, you’ll learn about setting up a first-rate data storage system that can keep up with today’s volume of data and the speed at which it’s generated.
