Seagate SSDs Power Nor-Tech’s High Performance Computing Solutions

Stocks in this article: STX

Seagate (NASDAQ:STX) today announced its Seagate ® Pulsar ® solid state drives (SSDs) are powering sophisticated, award-winning computing systems for Nor-Tech, a leader in high performance computing (HPC). Thanks to the speed and reliability of Seagate’s Pulsar SSDs, Nor-Tech has been able to produce highly mobile Portable Clusters that are enabling the use of high performance computing solutions for mobile applications and in challenging outdoor environments.

Nor-Tech, an Intel and Supermicro Authorized Integrator and Microsoft Direct OEM, specializes in high performance servers and clusters. The company’s Portable Clusters provide complete and fully customizable computing solutions for financial services, oil & gas, life sciences, higher education, visual effects and any other industry running compute-intensive applications. Featuring a ruggedized chassis, innovative software engineering, and the Lustre distributed file system, Portable Clusters are highly mobile and lightweight, allowing high-performance computing to escape the server room.

Nor-Tech is using the Seagate Pulsar.2 enterprise-class SSD in its Lustre Cluster metadata server, which directs extremely large amounts of data running in parallel to potentially thousands of clients. For example, Nor-Tech recently incorporated Seagate SSDs in its VoyStor Storage Server, which is being used by the University of Minnesota for hydropower and wind energy research. The parallel computing storage solution includes 2,300 compute cores to support 2,300 clients over a 40GB/s InfiniBand connection.

“Seagate Pulsar.2™ drives enable us to target new markets and revenue opportunities because we can design systems for very different locations and environments,” said Dom Daninger, vice president of Engineering at Nor-Tech. “We know we can rely on Seagate because of its long-standing reputation, its unparalleled expertise in enterprise-level storage, and its highly reliable firmware. We also have an excellent engineering and support relationship with Seagate, which is essential to a long-term integration partnership.”

“We believe that our SSD technology is a big part of creating new, powerful ways to support mission critical applications in HPC,” said Bob Griswold, senior vice president of Seagate Product Line Management. “Seagate has a heritage in delivering high performance, reliable storage solutions and we’re proud to team with Nor-Tech to help its customers advance computing possibilities.”
