ISC High Performance, the event for high-performance networking, computing (HPC) and storage, is just around the corner. I’m looking forward to joining our EMEA team in Frankfurt at the expo and hope to meet you if you are attending.
Tomorrow, I’ll be talking about real-life HPC use cases for object storage (register now to watch live or on-demand) and will provide a look at how Argonne National Labs, Texas Tech University, and other research-driven organizations are using Swarm Object Storage. Caringo Swarm can be used to radically simplify high-performance computing (HPC) archive, providing a storage platform for data protection, management, organization and search at massive scale. This means that you no longer need to migrate data into disparate solutions for content delivery, ongoing analysis, and long-term preservation. The 3 high-level benefits in the HPC space I will cover are:
- Tiering data from high-cost primary storage to economical, scalable secondary storage in a way that’s transparent to users and applications
- The ability to consolidate research data, eliminating storage silos
- How Swarm Object Storage provides metered storage and access services to enable secure collaboration
With Swarm, you can get all the benefits of the cloud in your data center. You can consolidate all files, find the data you are looking for quickly, and reduce storage total cost of ownership (TCO) by up to 75 percent. Infrastructure, multi-tenancy, and search are built in—delivering a robust platform that supports continuous evolution of hardware and delivers evolving views of data sets.
We have helped hundreds of organizations with our proven software-defined and hardware scale-out storage that is securely accessible over the web with revolutionary content management and data protection built in.
What are the characteristics of each storage tier and when should you use NVMe, SAN, NAS, Cloud, Object, or Tape Storage? More Details »
While object storage isn’t a panacea, it is an increasingly important storage technology that enables on-demand access for video workflows. More Details »
