Cluster File Systems Attains World Leadership Position in High-Performance File Systems

BOULDER, Colo., July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Cluster File Systems(TM), Inc. (CFS), announced that its Lustre(R) File System has established a world leadership position in High Performance Computing (HPC) in the area of parallel, scalable cluster file systems. With the most recent release by the TOP500 Supercomputer Sites, it was confirmed that the highest-ranked supercomputers in North America, Europe and Asia rely on Lustre technology to meet their requirements for scalability and high performance. In fact, 10 of the world's top 30 supercomputers use Lustre software, including the number- one-ranked supercomputer in the world.

Highlights from the June 28th TOP500 list include: -- In North America, the world's fastest supercomputer, IBM's BlueGene/L at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore, California, uses the Lustre File System to compute over 280 trillion floating- point operations per second. -- In France, the French Atomic Energy Authority (CEA) uses the Lustre File System on Europe's fastest supercomputer - the 8700 processor TERA10 system provided by Bull SA. -- Sun and NEC have deployed Asia's fastest supercomputer, the TSUBAME computer located at the Tokyo Institute of Technology in Japan. TSUBAME has over one petabyte of storage and uses the Lustre File System. -- More than 70 of the TOP500 Supercomputers have been deployed with Lustre technology, with systems ranked from number one to number 491.

"The broad, global reach of the Lustre File System is a testament to its scalability, flexibility and stability," said Dr. Peter Braam, President and CEO of Cluster File Systems, Inc. "CFS, along with our partners in the open source community, will continue to build upon Lustre software capabilities, and further refine the user experience in order to meet the demands of clustered computing users today and in the future."

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
"MobiDev is a Ukraine-based software development company. We do mobile development, and we're specialists in that. But we do full stack software development for entrepreneurs, for emerging companies, and for enterprise ventures," explained Alan Winters, U.S. Head of Business Development at MobiDev, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Recently, REAN Cloud built a digital concierge for a North Carolina hospital that had observed that most patient call button questions were repetitive. In addition, the paper-based process used to measure patient health metrics was laborious, not in real-time and sometimes error-prone. In their session at 21st Cloud Expo, Sean Finnerty, Executive Director, Practice Lead, Health Care & Life Science at REAN Cloud, and Dr. S.P.T. Krishnan, Principal Architect at REAN Cloud, discussed how they built...
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
