Xyratex to Ship HPC File Appliance

Lustre-based clustered file system maker Xyratex announced it will begin shipping its ClusterStor 3000 storage appliance for high-performance computing (HPC) applications during the fourth quarter.

Xyratex's (NASDAQ: XRTX) Lustre-based ClusterStor 3000 provides a rack mountable clustered storage appliance that can be modularly scaled using what the company calls Scalable Storage Units (SSU), according to a company statement.

"ClusterStor's scale-out storage architecture enables [construction of] configurations from terabytes to tens of petabytes and from 2.5 gigabytes per second to 1 terabyte per second of actual file system throughput," the statement said. The ClusterStor 3000 can hold 1.5 petabytes of storage in a single rack, and takes less than four hours to set up, it added.
