Data Storage for the era of Converged Big Data and HPC

Abstract : In 2014, organisations face a tremendous opportunity to extract commercial, scientific and/or strategic value from the exponential growth of digital data. Distributed processing software solutions such as Hadoop, running on industry-standard compute clusters, have made in-roads into data-intensive scientific computing. In these environments, it is proven that parallel file-systems, such as Lustre, offer benefits over HDFS by reducing the number of required data copies and allowing HPC users to run Hadoop by leveraging their existing parallel storage solution.

From a security perspective, data may have different classifications and must therefore be implemented with a high degree of protection. Typically, this is executed by implementing entirely separate, stand-alone storage silos. Xyratex Secure Data Appliance is the world's first parallel storage to achieve ICD-503 (DCID 6/3 PL4) compliance - negating the need for multiple storage silos for different levels of data security classifications. Large active data archives are becoming prevalent for research data. Typically based on object file systems, they provide massive capacity scalability, enhanced data protection, disaster recovery and interoperability with a huge variety of clients. Leveraging the Lustre policy engine, Xyratex is expanding the capabilities of high-performance storage by tightly integrating its ClusterStor engineered solutions with massively scalable active archives.
