Xyratex will be exhibiting at the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC'11) in Hamburg, Germany beginning today.
This year marks the first exhibitor level participation for Xyratex at ISC with a large booth on the exhibition floor, informative presentations on The Future of HPC Data Storage, Lustre roadmap futures from Xyratex at the HPC Advisory Council workshop, multiple sessions introducing ClusterStor 3000 and inclusion in the world's first FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand ISCnet demonstration along with other key HPC organizations including Microsoft, Mellanox, HP, DELL, and Fujitsu. The HPC Advisory Council, a leading organization for HPC research and education, 56Gb/s InfiniBand demonstration will interconnect participating exhibitors' booths via the ISCnet network to demonstrate various HPC applications and products including Xyratex's new ClusterStor 3000 storage solution.
"The HPC Advisory Council is very pleased to collaborate with Xyratex in the demonstration of the world's first FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand technology network. We are excited that Xyratex continues to contribute, invest, and show support for the HPC community with the development of the ClusterStor 3000 HPC storage solution complementing next generation HPC technologies required by the industry," said Gilad Shainer, HPC Advisory Council Chairman.
The primary highlight for ISC attendees is the announcement and demonstration of Xyratex's new high performance Lustre storage solution for HPC users, branded ClusterStor 3000, which will be available exclusively through Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) in the fourth quarter of 2011. Xyratex developed the ClusterStor 3000 by leveraging its expertise in clustered file systems, enterprise class integrated application platforms, and high availability storage subsystem design. The ClusterStor 3000 architecture delivers three interrelated benefits to HPC environments: linear performance scalability, ease of installation and management, and enhanced storage system reliability at scale.
"Xyratex ClusterStor 3000, based on Intel Xeon Processors, will help HPC customers deal with the efficient analysis of masses of data," said John Hengeveld, Director, HPC Marketing. "We are delighted to be having them join us at ISC in Hamburg to demonstrate their new technologies."
"Xyratex is committed to Lustre and excited to enter the HPC market with a fully integrated solution that will enable our OEM partners to leverage our next generation of HPC storage solutions," said Steve Barber, CEO of Xyratex. "We've invested significant resources to develop the ClusterStor solution and we're confident that the new levels of performance and density that we've achieved are unprecedented and will establish ClusterStor as the future of HPC data storage."
