DataDirect Networks storage solutions now part of HP cluster portfolio

Share this on social media:

DataDirect Networks' (DDN) Extreme Storage technology and services are now available as part of the HP Unified Cluster Portfolio. The agreement includes the DDN S2A9900 scale-out storage platform and the Lustre File System, which addresses the needs of HPC customers using Lustre for their parallel Linux applications.

'Clients need to cost-effectively expand bandwidth and storage for data intensive research and engineering applications,' said Scott Misage, director of research and development, Scalable Computing and Infrastructure, HP. 'The combination of DDN technology with HP cluster platforms provides clients the flexibility of a custom solution with the simplicity, reliability and value of a preconfigured, factory-built product for high-performance computing applications.'

The S2A9900 Lustre File Storage System is a parallel file storage system that was designed to provide scalable clustered storage performance, operational simplicity and predictable performance. It delivers application scaling and real-time quality of service while delivering 5 to 100s of GB/s of bandwidth and support for 10s of petabytes and thousands of file system clients for Lustre customers requiring large file workloads.
