DataDirect Networks has been chosen to provide data storage and file system platforms for a collaborative scientific project at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
DDN will assist LANL’s institutional computing initiative by providing computing systems for the lab’s scientists and engineers around the world for activities such as multidisciplinary program simulations, DDN said Monday.
The company will will deploy Storage Fusion Architecture and EXAScaler Lustre file system program with the goal of growing the lab’s current and future cluster infrastructure.
Jeff Denworth, vice president for marketing at DDN, said the company aims to help research lab meet storage requirements and bolster access to information for scientific research.
The applications are designed to provide a 4.3-petabyte storage capacity for 11 different computing clusters, as well as 40 gigabyte-per-second input and output performance to address scalability, reliability and throughput concerns.
