High Performance Computing: Solutions for Storage and Data Migration
Can your data perform better than your IT system allows? Standard filing systems tend to reach their limits when it comes to large data quantities: They do not have the capacities to process the data throughput. The solution: High Performance Computing (HPC). Powerful HPC systems allow you to maximize your IT performance for storing and migrating large amounts of data.
What is High Performance Computing?
Companies and institutions in natural sciences, engineering, medicine or industrial areas deal with enormous amounts of data that would simply demand too much of standard filing systems: The number of files per filing system is limited and the goodput does not suffice when it comes to large files. Filing systems reach their limits and therefore avert effective work with the data. Organizations need High Performance Computing (HPC), especially high-performance computer systems, to overcome these boundaries.
In HPC, various processors – sometimes up to several thousand – are combined to a cluster. The individual nodes inside of each cluster communicate with each other and work together towards the same goal. This opens up new possibilities to work efficiently with large amounts of data. Even scalable storage systems for huge data quantities and new solutions for data migration become possible.
