LRZ Supercomputer Backs Up Big Data With IBM Tape System

Stocks in this article: IBM

An IBM System x3850 acts as the archive server and is responsible for the management of metadata, the control of the mass storage device, and the control of the data flow. To ensure fast access to archived data, IBM System Storage DS3500 and IBM Storwize V7000 systems are used as high capacity disks, along with 6 terabytes of solid state drive (SSD) memory.

"The project at LRZ achieves the tremendous possibilities of IBM Storage technology for a challenging IT environment," said IBM Storage Manager, Michael Achtelik. "Through its expandability, the system also provides a long-term solution."

About the LRZ

The LRZ is a joint data center of the Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich, the Technical University of Munich and the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and is one of the biggest supercomputing centers in Europe. It operates high-performance computing systems for all Bavarian universities and a federal high performance computer, which is available for scientific research at German universities. LRZ provides more than 100,000 users at the universities of Munich and the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and operates with general IT services. It runs an extensive communication infrastructure with disk and automated magnetic tape storage for backing up large amounts of data. Since July 2012, it is also the home of the supercomputer SuperMUC, currently one of the fastest computers in Europe. SuperMUC is an IBM System x iDataPlex with a total of more than 155,000 cores. It is distinguished by the fact that it is being cooled with hot water. This cooling concept was developed by IBM and is being used on a large scale the first time with SuperMUC.
