NEC HPC Group Selects SAN Storage From Dot Hill For LXFS Parallel File System

LONGMONT, Colo., Sept. 19, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dot Hill Systems Corp. (Nasdaq:HILL), a leading provider of SAN storage solutions, announced that it has been selected by NEC High Performance Computing Europe (NEC HPCE) to supplement NEC's parallel file system LXFS, based on "Lustre" technology. The joint solution, which integrates Dot Hill AssuredSAN 3000 and 3003 storage arrays with NEC's file system products, has already been deployed at several university research data centres as well as at development centres in the automotive industry.

NEC HPC Europe, which is headquartered in Düsseldorf, Germany, tested the Dot Hill AssuredSAN 3000 and AssuredSAN 3003 storage arrays extensively before selecting them for deployment with LXFS. The R&D and Storage team was satisfied that the systems met NEC's strict requirements in terms of performance and reliability.

"Technical and scientific computing creates huge amounts of data at a high rate, therefore scalable file systems became critical components for building HPC systems. Dot Hill storage complements our LXFS parallel file system by exceeding our customers' expectations in terms of scalability, reliability, performance and cost-effectiveness," said Dr. Erich Focht, Senior Manager R&D and Storage Products for NEC High Performance Computing Europe. "We take advantage of the 6GB SAS host interface option offered by the AssuredSAN platform connected in a DAS configuration which provides a robust and scalable infrastructure for our performance-intensive applications."

NEC LXFS is a scalable parallel file system product designed to offer huge storage capacities with balanced performance especially for mid- and large-scale HPC systems. LXFS consists of server hardware, storage hardware, file system software, a deployment concept, a management and monitoring concept paired with an emphasis on reliability and redundancy and bundled with support services. It is built out of basic building blocks allowing for easy scaling and configuration in terms of capacity and performance.
