Xyratex Announces ClusterStor™ 6000: Delivering The Ultimate In High Performance Computing Data Storage

Stocks in this article: XRTX

HAVANT, United Kingdom, June 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Xyratex Ltd (Nasdaq: XRTX), a leading provider of data storage technology, today announced the ClusterStor™ 6000, the High Performance Computing (HPC) industry's fastest data storage solution delivering two times the Lustre® file system performance over competing designs. With an enterprise level resiliency architecture, ClusterStor 6000 provides the highest levels in integrated solution reliability, availability and serviceability. ClusterStor 6000 will be available exclusively through Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) in the third quarter of this year.

ClusterStor 6000 delivers a new standard in file system performance, scalability and efficiency. Its unique architecture brings together what were previously discrete server, network and storage platforms with their own separate software layers, into a single integrated modular scale out storage building block. This innovative approach enables the system to scale both performance and capacity while aggressively reducing space, power and administrative overhead.

ClusterStor 6000 Scalable Storage Unit (SSU) is the easy to use building block that enables rapid deployment, scale and productivity.  The SSU is only five rack units high and delivers up to six gigabytes/sec of sustained read and write file system performance. ClusterStor 6000 offers support for installations with unprecedented linear performance scalability from 6 gigabytes per second to one terabyte per second file system processing capability, as well as linear data storage capacity from terabytes to tens of petabytes.

"The ClusterStor product family of scale-out HPC data storage solutions features a tightly integrated distributed computing architecture. Xyratex has integrated Lustre into storage appliances designed to operate as turnkey solutions, contrasted with the traditional piecemeal, less-productive HPC storage solutions. The integration of heterogeneous traditional nodes into high performance, dense platforms results in a reduced footprint and the foundation for lower cooling and infrastructure costs," said Steve Conway, Research Vice President, High Performance Computing, IDC. "Xyratex is involved in some of the largest and most challenging storage deployments in the world, at least one of which aims to become the first high-density platform to scale to 1 TB/second sustained file system performance."

ClusterStor 6000 is designed for users who want to build efficient petascale computing solutions for high performance computing applications in areas such as scientific research, simulation, climate modeling, and energy exploration.
