DataDirect to Store Texas Computing Center’s Resources, Visualization Systems

data direct networksDataDirect Networks has signed a deal to provide Texas Advanced Computing Center at Austin’s University of Texas with a storage system for computing and visualization systems intended to fulfill future research requirements.

TACC selected DDN’s SFA12K and SFA7700 platforms and EXAScaler parallel file storage system to connect its resources as the center has started producing Stampede, a high performance computing system, DataDirect said Thursday.

The parallel file storage system is designed to help TACC reduce power consumption and costs while boosting storage capacity.

“We want to help researchers solve the most important and challenging problems, and this increasingly depends on rapid access to massive data,” said Jay Boisseau, director of TACC.

“This new DDN solution will provide a foundation for researchers to analyze data and make new discoveries,” Boisseau added.

The DDN storage servers have helped TACC escalate its storage capacity and input/output performance through an InfinibBand connected file system, DataDirect said.

Stampede is designed to help researchers study various fields, including brain tumor imaging, black hole physics and seismic hazard mapping, according to the company.
