High performance computing storage cluster
HPC clients need to optimize their HPC environments for specific workloads and ensure fast time-to-results. This requires a reliable, high-speed, and high-density approach to data. But, as HPC workloads scale, cost-effectively storing, managing, and processing massive datasets becomes a challenge, especially if your data is growing quickly. It can be even more of a challenge if you have multiple concurrent users accessing that ever-expanding data.
The Metis HPC Storage Cluster solves this problem by leveraging software-defined storage from BeeGFS. As a result, you get highly available and dense capacity, robust data protection features, and support for multiple concurrent users, all without sacrificing the high storage speeds necessary for HPC performance. Then, when you’re ready, you can scale as needed.Get More Information

Deployments sized to customer needs, from hundreds of Terabytes to multiple Petabytes
Full range of Ethernet and High-Speed Low-Latency NVIDIA InfiniBand Networking Options
BeeGFS is a lightweight and powerful software-defined distributed filesystem that can scale to meet user demand without sacrificing performance. BeeGFS is an easily deployable alternative to other parallel filesystems like IBM Spectrum Scale or Lustre.
The BeeGFS architecture allows users to manage any IO profile requirements without performance restrictions and provides the scalability & flexibility needed for the most demanding HPC applications.
BeeGFS also has native RDMA support. Nodes can serve multiple RDMA (InfiniBand, Omni-Path, RoCE and TCP/IP) network connections at the same time and automatically switch to a redundant connection path to mitigate hardware failures.
No specific enterprise Linux distribution or other special environment is required to run BeeGFS. It uses existing partitions, formatted with any standard Linux file system. That mean a Metis HPC Storage Cluster can plug into any environment and support any HPC use case.
