2 integrated high performance scale-out storage for HPC and Big Data There is a feeling you get when you experience fine engineering. The feeling starts when you first lay eyes on the product and becomes more evident every time you use it. There are so many facets of your experience that tell you someone knows exactly what you need; innovative thought is evident behind every detail. Xyratex has taken its 25 years experience in designing and delivering enterprise class storage, along with the Lustre high performance file system, to create, an integrated family of high performance scaleout storage solutions for HPC and Big Data. Designed to provide unmatched file system performance and optimized time to productivity, provides the HPC industry s highest levels of integration solution reliability, availability and serviceability. This achievement is the direct result of a fresh ground-breaking design approach that meets the specific needs of high performance computing and its ever expanding scale. The architecture is not merely an exercise of repackaging separate legacy storage hardware and file system software components. is the result of state of the art optimization of the Lustre file system embedded within a modular scale-out hardware architecture to address a wide spectrum of HPC and Big Data application needs. offers solutions to best match your most challenging linear performance and capacity scalability requirements. When you get up close, you can see that is not only innovative in its approach but also delivers a level of quality that translates into higher availability to meet your productivity requirements today and into the future. Problem: Legacy storage metrics are not meaningful at the HPC and Big Data user level. Traditional Lustre file system solutions have typically used a mix of off-the-shelf components from different vendors leveraging legacy storage. Difficulties and roadblocks have been widely reported within the industry due to variances in vendor components interacting with separate file system servers and software packages, as well as the constant need to tune and retune file system parameters when attempting to add or even adjust file system processing capacity. This traditional approach burdens HPC and Big Data environments with unacceptable program risk due to the excessive time, expense and non-productive work that constantly disrupts system productivity. What has previously been considered maintenance is actually waste. Increasing HPC and Big Data productivity requirements demand that waste be eliminated. The future of HPC and Big Data data storage requires a paradigm shift from legacy storage systems that focus on attributes like raw block storage capacity, controller cache size, or raw block data transfers. Solution: HPC and Big Data user productivity is the only meaningful metric. File system storage productivity is best measured in sustained end to end file system throughput delivery, as well as reduced datacenter floor space utilization, cooling, power and administrative time. Unfortunately, traditional storage systems on their own are not able to address these user level attributes. A comprehensive solution paradigm is needed. introduces a new standard in end-to-end file system performance and efficiency, at the user level. Truly scaling file system performance efficiently means aggressively reducing the space, power, cooling and time consumed to achieve the HPC and Big Data performance and results users seek. Xyratex has proven that performance, efficiency and end-to-end solution management gains can be realized by consolidating system components closely together within an efficient, reliable and highly integrated scale-out data storage solution.

3 Architecture makes the solution paradigm clear. utilizes high performance, distributed computing data storage elements that have been designed and built from the enclosure and application platform all the way up to the operating system, file system and advanced User Interface (UI) management functions. Four high level solution components (storage hardware, operating system, file system and management application) have been synergistically bonded together to create the most reliable and best performing integrated high performance scale-out storage in the industry today. Lustre is the front running file system for the top HPC systems in the world and is continuing to gain momentum in emerging Big Data deployments as organizations such as OpenSFS invest heavily in its future. s software architecture tightly integrates Lustre into a performance and capacity optimized solution that removes headaches that have historically been associated with deploying, managing and maintaining traditional Lustre environments using off the shelf components from different vendors. Lustre s future is directly tied to its quality and end user productivity success. This is why Xyratex makes significant contributions into Lustre testing, support and community involvement, and why we have honed the best attributes into our tightly optimized environment, eliminating variations and complexity. The resilient operating environment introduces a scale-out storage and management architecture specifically designed to take full advantage of the performance and capacity scaling capabilities of the Lustre file system. doesn t have to utilize special block-storage algorithms to predict how to provide optimal performance, the operating environment knows. In, the operating environment is integrated into distributed data storage elements called the Scalable Storage Unit. Introducing the Scalable Storage Unit The Scalable Storage Unit (SSU) is at the heart of s scale-out storage architecture. The SSU consolidates and integrates traditional block storage, network and file system components into a single building block that delivers a linear scaling unit in file system performance and data storage capacity. There is no need to guess at how to scale your Lustre file system: each unit is a balanced performance building block delivering a predictable level of performance and/or data storage capacity that scales linearly without storage or network degradation. Scalable Storage Unit building blocks provide a purpose-built, appliance like method to plan, build and deploy small, medium, or extensively large HPC data storage systems. End users simply add SSUs to satisfy their performance and/or data capacity needs, all while using built-in optimization, resilient operating environment, end-to-end solution quality and ease of management.

4 A family of integrated high performance scale-out storage solutions How does the architecture deliver unmatched yet predictable file system performance? Taking a deeper look into the distributed scale-out data storage architecture, one of the unique characteristics users experience is s performance density. This means the highest performance in the smallest amount of space. Take one look at ; you will see up to 14 embedded storage servers per rack. has not only been designed with a massively parallel degree of embedded storage servers per rack volume of storage capacity, but looking deeper into individual SSU building blocks, users see the latest generation of server-class processors and the same design approach as contained in the latest HPC and Big Data scale-out compute nodes. Overcoming Bottlenecks has up to fourteen embedded storage servers per rack Looking back, traditional storage designs offer two storage servers per rack of storage, and frequently offer the same two storage servers for two racks of storage. Unfortunately, this has been widely noted as one of the principle painpoints within the industry: storage IO performance bottleneck. Clearly, traditional storage design with too few storage servers per rack volume are out of balance with the file system performance and capacity needs of modern HPC and Big Data scale-out compute architectures. In a system, Scalable Storage Units (SSUs) act as independent I/O processing engines that work in parallel. Each SSU has its own set of resources that includes densely packed disk storage and dual embedded server modules, which also carry their own set of processing, memory and I/O network resources. This provides the most efficient use of each resource in a compact design that reduces the space required to deliver each gigabyte of file system performance. Broad Applications - Flexible Planning - Easy Deployment No matter how small or large your high performance application plan, the family provides a wide range of solutions and design methods to best match the file system performance and/or data storage capacity growth projected throughout the lifetime of your installation Delivers best in class ROI acceleration for entry and midrange environments To best address commercial scientific high resolution simulation and engineering modeling applications, 1500 enables parallel data access to attain significantly enhanced data processing throughput efficiency, far exceeding limitations associated to legacy midrange solutions relying solely upon serial data access Network File System (NFS) specifically enables commercial and industrial technical computing users to attain faster job completion, higher job iteration rates and more precise application insights with higher resolution accuracy Maximum Affordable Entry & As an easy to use complete turnkey engineered Lustre solution for entry and Supercomputing Scale Midrange Solution midrange technical computing users, 1500 is designed to deliver Highest Concentrated Best in Class ROI Performance Density Acceleration no compromise performance and data capacity scalability in an affordable and Proven Efficiency, Reliability and Ease of Management Compact and Easy to Use Turnkey Lustre Solution remarkably compact integrated scale-out solution Delivers maximum performance scale for supercomputing environments To best address maximum file system through-put, 6000 delivers highest performance and data capacity density per SSU, achieving more concentrated performance per unit data storage capacity, while delivering excellent efficiency, reliability and ease of management. As demonstrated among the industry s largest and fastest supercomputing installations, 6000 is designed to collapse and consolidate Lustre file system hardware and software into modular, easy-to-use building blocks, enabling unprecedented linear performance scalability via proven methodical deployment methods with predictable solution results. Compared to legacy Lustre designs, this translates into saving in storage hardware, resulting in lower latencies, higher reliability and reduced power and cooling costs.
