Object Storage in a HPC World

Although Flash, NAS and SAN may be the current “go-to” solutions for storage in the High-Performance Computing (HPC) world, that storage paradigm has proven to be limited when it comes to dealing with the rapidly growing data sets of the 21st century. As IT Pros search for cost-effective storage that easily scales with their HPC […]

The World Cup of Supercomputing: ISC2018 & Object Storage

Next week, I have an exciting “first” in my career: I’ll be in Frankfurt representing Caringo at the prestigious International Supercomputing event (ISC). ISC is focused on addressing High-Performance Computing (HPC) technological development and its application in scientific and advanced commercial environments. And of course, all of this is made more exciting for me because […]

Object Storage: 3 Predictions for 2018

2017 was a turning point for object storage. Ever since content addressable or key-value based storage was created, storage analysts and IT execs wondered if it was a technology in search of a problem to solve. Was it really just a “better mousetrap?” As we enter into 2018, there are a number of trends in […]

The 3 Changing Characteristics of HPC Storage

Historically in the High-Performance Computing (HPC) space, storage was evaluated by cost vs performance. Most of the budget was spent on high-performance storage because it meant faster time to results. Once data sets were rendered, modeled or any other form of analysis was performed, the data either stayed on the high-performance layer or was painstakingly […]
