To provide storage services for HPC market
RAID, a provider of customized storage systems and services, and Terascala, a developer of storage appliances, have entered into a strategic partnership in order to leverage Terascala’s parallel file system capabilities, and to allow RAID to provide storage services for the high performance computing market.
RAID said that Terascala has already qualified its compact Razor system for use with the integrated, active – passive redundant metadata server architecture of its MTS 1000 solution, which is claimed to provide the highest levels of performance and reliability for the critical component of the system.
RAID also said that Terascala will also be qualifying its Xanadu system for use in its entire product line, providing unprecedented value in terms of scalability, performance, and data integrity to its customer base.
Robert Picardi, Chief Operating Officer at RAID, said: Our belief is that parallel file systems such as Lustre are becoming a requirement in most high performance environments. Many customers now understand that a storage system that can deliver data to keep pace with the processors is a requirement to maximize overall performance and utilization.”
Rick Friedman, vice president of marketing and product management at Terascala, said: RAID has had a reputation for years of providing the high performance computing (HPC) and research markets with enterprise-class storage solutions at great cost points, along with extremely reliable 24×7 support.
