Meet Both High Performance and High-availability Storage Requirements with QuantaStor SDS
High-performance Computing Storage Solutions
For computationally intensive applications such as rich media, 3D and weather modeling, seismic data processing and data mining or large-scale simulations, the QuantaStor SDS platform provides High-performance Computing (HPC) storage capabilities to scale up and out with its grid architecture for increased I/O and capacity requirements. Leveraging open source file systems and protocols including NFS, CIFS, SMB, iSCSI and ZFS, QuantaStor allows fast access to large file, block and object storage across multiple nodes for
fast and efficient pure performance, dedicated computational scratch or multi-petabyte result set storage applications.
QuantaStor plays an important role in HPC deployments by providing IT architects with the latest in storage software and hardware compatability so that the HPC solution can be designed specifically to meet any extreme workload need. For applications that require a single, massive namespace, QuantaStor's grid management technology delivers up to 64PB of storage in a single scale-out file system accessible via major
protocols. Scale-out solutions can be made highly available when storage is provisioned using erasure-coding or replica based storage layouts ensuring that the storage remains fully available to applications even when an appliance node is taken offline for maintenance or upgrades.
