The new high-speed shared file system, GSTORAGEFS, for high performance computers (HPC) will be initially installed in 72 SX-8 supercomputers in the High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart. The system being installed achieved a high throughput of 7.85GB/s per single 80TB file system configured as a GFS on the NEC Storage NV7300G.
GFS will respond to the need of users to be able to share large volumes of data among different models HPC servers and access them at high-speed, in a HPC environment where data size is becoming increasingly large along with ever-increasing computation speed.
GFS is a SAN-type high-speed shared file system for HPC, which NEC is providing in its vector supercomputer SX series and scalar server TX7 series. The sharing between heterogeneous HPC servers is done using the network file system (NFS) interface. GFS realized high-speed file access performance, exploiting the high bandwidth (2Gbps, 4Gbps) of fibre channels by directly transferring large capacity data from the HPC server to the storage. GFS also allows more than ten times throughput performance compared to the NFS, depending on the SAN configurations.
Highly reliable file server operation realized by complete cluster configuration
NV7300G is a file server configured with two nodes cluster, and is a gateway model of NEC’s Storage NV series with GFS. When a failure occurs in one node, operation is immediately handed over to the other node. Network and storage paths are also redundant to realization of high reliability and scalability as a GFS file server.home loans continental americanonline american loanspayday 1000 fax no 20 loan1000 loan online payday moneymoney loan payday 12 17 militaryloan equity 125 second and homeloan impro home for 125online payday 19 arizona loan 13 Map
