EMC introduces new VNX HPC series to simplify Lustre environments

The new release will deliver 10s of GB/sec bandwidth and 10s of petabytes of capacity

By CBR Staff Writer

Data storage products and services provider EMC has expanded its portfolio of High Performance Computing (HPC) by introducing VNX HPC series with preconfigured hardware and software appliance that simplifies complex Lustre environments for commercial HPC customers.

The VNX HPC series includes metadata and object servers, EMC VNX5100 metadata storage, VNX7500 object storage and the Terascala LustreStack software suite.

EMC said the new release will deliver 10s of GB/sec bandwidth and 10s of petabytes of capacity.

The HPC series will enable companies of different sizes in industries such as financial services, life sciences, manufacturing and oil and gasto utilise Lustre with reliability and simplified end-to-end management.

VNX HPC series offers 8GB/sec read and 5.3GB/sec write performance, adds high throughput and low latency Infiniband connectivity to the Lustre Parallel File System and delivers enterprise reliability with five-nines availability and worldwide support.

The new release also supports 720 Terabytes and scales to 10s of Petabytes with the new capacity expansion modules. It also saves three to four weeks per year in deployment and upgrade time for a typical Lustre file system, with dashboard monitoring and single support contact.

ESG senior analyst Terri McClure said many of the organisations don’t have the resources to take full advantage of complex Lustre based implementations.
