High-performance computing is no longer limited to rarefied environments with unlimited budgets. Research institutions and commercial enterprises alike use HPC techniques and tools to further their goals. As a result, HPC systems - including supporting data storage systems - must provide more than just raw speed. For the vast majority of users the need for speed is balanced with other things, including ease of deployment, large scale, shared access, storage tiering, and future flexibility.
StorNext®, the software engine within Quantum’s Xcellis™ family of appliances offers a unique combination of features that make it ideal for meeting demands that are common to HPC environments.
