PRESS RELEASE

ClusterStor 1500

Xyratex has introduced the ClusterStor 1500, a high-performance storage offering designed for the mid-range of the HPC storage market. ClusterStor 1500 is the newest member of the ClusterStor family of scale-out HPC storage solutions that delivers performance and efficiency. A unique architecture brings together what were previously discrete server, network and storage platforms with their own separate software layers into a single integrated, modular, scale-out storage building block.

This approach enables the system to scale both performance and capacity while reducing administrative overhead. Features include the ability to scale performance from 1.25GB/s to 110GB/s, and raw capacity from 42TB to 7.3PB; the Lustre file system; and ClusterStor Manager, a comprehensive system management application that consolidates management of the entire storage cluster infrastructure, RAID data protection layer, operating system and Lustre into a single-pane-of-glass, easy-to-use administrator interface.
