High performance computing (HPC) environments continually test the limits of technology and require peak performance from their equipment—including data storage. As the growth of data in HPC explodes, optimizing performance, increasing uptime and lowering costs become vital components to any future-looking HPC storage architecture. Join us to learn how the Advanced Computing Center for Research and Education (ACCRE) at Vanderbilt University enhanced their organizational efficiencies by scaling storage for their networked computer cluster. Housing over 10,000 computational cores, the ACCRE Big Data cluster is used for a wide variety of services, from supporting research across their vast campus to processing complex scientific research from data-intensive environments like CERN to providing tape backup services to multiple external partners. Join our technology expert to discuss Vanderbilt’s ACCRE’s hybrid storage architecture that enables direct end-user access to archival storage and infinite scalability. The presentation also will discuss how ACCRE reduced its annual data storage operating charges for their backup clients by over 50 percent.
