The Commercial HPC Storage Checklist – Item 3 – Protection at Scale - Most storage systems provide several layers of protection. At a minimum, there is protection from media failure, typically delivered by some form of parity based protection scheme. In enterprise systems, it is also common to have built-in redundancy in both
How is Storage IO Different for AI vs. HPC? - Most Artificial Intelligence (AI) projects start off as a skunkworks project that when ready for production is tossed over the wall for IT to handle. In many cases, IT tries to store the AI workload on an existing network attached
The Commercial HPC Storage Checklist – Item 2 – Start Small, Scale Large - Scaling is a capability that almost every vendor claims but few execute well. Most vendors claim to provide scalability via a scale-out storage system, but scale-out by itself is not enough to address all the scaling demands of a Commercial
AI Needs an NVMe-Optimized File System - Analytics is evolving from big data, machine learning to artificial intelligence. Machine learning is the analysis of data at rest, artificial intelligence (AI) is the analysis of data in real-time. Machine learning is predictive; AI is cognitive. The requirements of
The Commercial HPC Storage Checklist - High-Performance Computing (HPC) is no longer limited to the halls of academia and large government labs. Commercial HPC use cases are on the rise. Many organizations now have a large pool of unstructured data that requires analysis. The challenge for
Not all Cloud NAS are the Same – Understanding Cloud NAS Architectures - Unprecedented data growth, increased demands for performance and new use cases like analytics and IoT are pushing Network Attached Storage (NAS) to the breaking point. Organizations are looking to cloud storage to help them solve the problem and stop the
Flash to Flash to Cloud – Solving the Data Protection Problem - The primary objective of a data protection strategy is to protect data frequently and consistently. The ever growing size of data, the diversity of systems that store that data and the high expectations of the creators and consumers of that
Three Steps to Architecting Storage for Commercial HPC - The storage architecture requirements for Commercial HPC are different from those for traditional enterprise storage architecture. They are also different from the traditional HPC requirements. Most enterprise IT professionals try to either extend their current storage architectures, which are supporting
Why Data Movement Breaks Data Management and How to Fix It - The primary goal of a data management strategy is to reduce storage costs. Achieving that goal requires that at some point data will have to move from primary storage to a less expensive secondary storage. The movement of data between
Commercial HPC vs. Enterprise Storage - High-Performance Computing (HPC) is no longer a workload for academia, now organizations of all types and sizes have HPC like workloads that require scalable, sequential access to vast amounts of unstructured data. These initiatives need rapid access and need to
