ViON presents ClusterStor by Xyratex. ClusterStor is an integrated Lustre® storage solution – engineered for high performance computing. ClusterStor consolidates controllers, storage, operating system and the Lustre file system creating a new optimal scale-out storage platform for The Future of HPC Data Storage. This fully realized solution provides the industry's greatest reliability, scalability, superior performance and ease of management.
Clustered File Systems:
Lustre has been chosen as a core component to ClusterStor solutions as it has become the file system of choice in 70% of the top 100 HPC sites (top500.org – 2010); 23% growth over that of 2009. Xyratex has invested in a world-class Lustre development team that is committed to the ongoing improvements and success of the Lustre file system. Lustre is the front running file system for the top HPC systems in the world and is continuing to gain momentum as organizations such as OpenSFS invest heavily in its future.
Xyratex has taken its 25 years' experience in designing and delivering enterprise class storage, along with the Lustre® high performance file system, to create ClusterStor, an integrated HPC data storage solution family of products. Designed to provide unmatched file system performance and ease of use, ClusterStor provides the HPC industry's highest levels in integrated solution reliability, availability, and serviceability.
ClusterStor is the result of state of the art optimization of the Lustre file system embedded within a modular, scale-out hardware architecture to address a wide spectrum of HPC and Big Data application needs. ClusterStor offers solutions to best match your most challenging linear performance and capacity scalability requirements.
ClusterStor™ - Delivering the Ultimate in HPC data storage
ClusterStor™ provides the ultimate integrated HPC data storage solution delivering optimized time to productivity: maximizing efficiency, application availability, and results.
HPC Storage Systems Target Scalable Modular Designs to Boost Productivity
ClusterStor introduces a new standard in file system performance and efficiency. Truly scaling file system performance efficiently means that you are aggressively reducing the space, power, and time required to achieve the HPC performance and results you're seeking.
Optimized time to productivity
ClusterStor is designed for HPC and Big Data users who want to build efficient petascale solutions for high performance computing applications in areas such as scientific research, simulation, climate modeling and energy exploration.
Get up and running fast - it only requires physical installation and simple setup steps with ClusterStor's easy deployment. Instead of spending weeks gathering separate hardware and software, resolving interoperability issues, and testing to get your Lustre® environment into production, you can be productive with ClusterStor in hours.
Get more performance in less space - ClusterStor's Scalable Storage Unit building block design collapses and consolidates Lustre hardware and software components increasing performance density for every rack unit. Compared to legacy Lustre implementations, ClusterStor can save up to 50% in RAID and file system hardware and software resulting in lower latencies, higher reliability, and reduced power and cooling costs.
Easy to manage - ClusterStor Manager is a comprehensive system management application included with every ClusterStor system. It is part of ClusterStor's distributed management framework and is responsible for pulling everything together as a single managed system. ClusterStor Manager consolidates management of the storage infrastructure, RAID data protection layer, operating system, and the Lustre file system into a single, easy-to-use, administrator interface bringing unprecedented system visibility to the Lustre system administrator.
