Cray Sonexion 1300
23 November 2011
Cray has introduced the Cray Sonexion 1300, an integrated file system, software and storage product. Designed specifically for a wide range of HPC workloads, the Cray Sonexion 1300 system cost-effectively scales from approximately 50 terabytes to more than 50 petabytes of useable capacity without a compromise in performance. The storage system also features data rates of more than a terabyte-per-second.
With an increasing market demand for larger, faster and more productive HPC storage systems, the key differentiator in the Cray Sonexion 1300 system is that the storage product is specifically designed to provide users with an integrated, scalable Lustre solution that is easy to install and maintain. Cray’s new storage system combines powerful servers, the latest Lustre parallel file system and management software into a modular storage product that is built, thoroughly tested, shipped and supported as a complete solution.
