Seagate Technology, a storage solutions specialist, has unveiled the ClusterStor Engineered Solution for Lustre, promising up to 700 percent metadata performance improvements.
The performance improvements and scalability are delivered by implementing the Distributed Namespace (DNE) features in the Lustre 2.5 parallel file system.
The new capabilities also allow ClusterStor customers to add up to sixteen Lustre Distributed Namespace metadata servers per single file system, providing client metadata performance improvement of up to 700 percent and expanded scalability support for up to 16 billion files per file system.
Engineered for the high-performance computing (HPC) scenario, ClusterStor Engineered Solution for Lustre removes the complexities associated with deploying and maintaining traditional high-performance systems yielding faster time to results, ease of use, and world-class performance to meet mission-critical needs, according to Ken Claffey, vice president of ClusterStor, Seagate Cloud Systems and Solutions.
Seagate ClusterStor Engineered Solutions for Lustre adds important new features to the Lustre parallel data storage file system used in HPC environments, Seagate said.
Updated features include scalability advancements to support larger computing clusters, improved security capabilities including government security compliance and ease of deployment for upcoming Lustre releases.
Supporting a new Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM) framework, Seagate ClusterStor OEM, reseller partners and end users will be able to create and manage multi-tier disk-to-disk and disk-to-tape data migration solutions, which aid in reducing capital and operating expenditures, associated with prior labor-intensive data management procedure.
Seagate partners will benefit through reduced investment risk, integration and support costs associated with new, major releases of the Lustre file system.
