Maintaining Storage Health over Time

Storage is a crucial aspect of HPC clusters. Storage nodes are typically shared among multiple users, and are highly utilized – there isn’t a lot of unused space. The storage nodes also experience a lot of reads and writes – data is typically written, deleted, and written again multiple times. Read more…

Improving Storage QoS for HPC centers

Data-centric applications (e.g., data analytics, machine learning, deep learning) running at HPC centers require efficient access to digital information in order to provide accurate results and new insights.  Users typically store this information on a shared parallel file system (e.g., Lustre, GPFS), which is available at HPC infrastructures. This is Read more…
