VAST Data: No More Tiers - Redefining Flash Economics to Simplify Storage and Accelerate All Applications
TimeWednesday, June 24th10:31pm - 10:45pm
DescriptionFor 30 years, HPC centers have wrestled with the complexity and compromises inherent in hard drive based storage. Today, new storage architectures combine algorithmic advances with new infrastructure technologies such as containers, NVMe-oF, and Intel® Optane™ SSDs and QLC 3D NAND SSDs, to disrupt the economics of flash-based storage, making it a competitive, affordable alternative for all your active data
This talk will explore how you can now flatten the namespace without compromising the dedicated performance that HPC delivers for scratch and home directories. It will also compare all-flash performance vs. classic parallel file systems, and examine case studies of computing centers that are transitioning to all-flash.
