Storage for HPC
HPC requires high performance storage
High performance computing (HPC) is dramatically different than enterprise compute. Enterprise compute involves small file sizes and enterprise application support. HPC runs batch jobs with large data sets against large distributed compute clusters, possibly involving thousands of nodes. HPC compute typically requires a parallel distributed file system to provide high speed concurrent access to data. Without it, expensive CPUs starve for data and processing is delayed.
