DataDirect Networks' (DDN) Lustre-Based Performance Storage
DDN, of Santa Clara, Calif., showcased its ES7K Lustre-based high-performance storage solution at Supercomputing 2015. It's targeted at channel partners serving end-user customers with fast data ingest, processing and distribution requirements, and big data analytics workflows in high-performance enterprise and high-performance computing environments. DDN claims ES7K is the fastest and densest Lustre appliance available, the only one to deliver unified data across performance, cloud, and archive storage.
DDN said the ES7K provides triple the performance and more than double the storage density of its closest competition, and offers extended Lustre accessibility to entry-level and mid-range, data-intensive, scale-out environments.
