Finding oil and gas has always been a tricky proposition, given that reserves are primarily hidden underground, and often as not, under the ocean as well. The costs involved in acquiring rights to a site, drilling the wells, and operating them are considerable and has driven the industry to adopt advanced technologies for locating the most promising sites. As a consequence, oil and gas exploration today is essentially an exercise in scientific visualization and modeling, employing some of most advanced computational technologies available. High performance computing (HPC) systems are being used to fill these needs, primarily with x86-based cluster computers and Lustre storage systems. The technology is well developed, but the scale of the problem demands medium to large-sized systems, requiring a significant capital outlay and operating expense. The most powerful systems deployed by oil and gas companies are represented by petaflop-scale computers with multiple petabytes of attached

Although high-performance computing (HPC) often stands apart from a typical IT infrastructure—it uses highly specialized scale-out compute, networking and storage resources—it shares with mainstream IT the ability to push data center capacity to the breaking point. Much of this is due to data center inefficiencies caused by HPC storage growth. The Seagate® ClusterStor™ approach to scale-out HPC storage can significantly improve data center efficiency. No other vendor solution offers the same advantages.

Value is migrating throughout the IT industry from hardware to software and services. High Performance Computing (HPC) is no exception. IT solution providers must position themselves to maximize their delivery of business value to their clients – particularly industrial customers who often use several applications that must be integrated in a business workflow. This requires systems and hardware vendors to invest in making their infrastructure “application ready”. With its Application Ready solutions, IBM is outflanking competitors in Technical Computing and fast-tracking the delivery of client business value by providing an expertly designed, tightly integrated and performance optimized architecture for several key industrial applications. These Application Ready solutions come with a complete high-performance cluster including servers, network, storage, operating system, management software, parallel file systems and other run time libraries, all with commercial-level solution s

The evolution of genomics in recent decades has seen the volume of sequencing rise dramatically as a result of lower costs. Massive growth in the quantities of data created by sequencing has greatly increased analytical challenges, and placed ever-increasing demands on compute and storage infrastructure. Researchers have leveraged high-performance computing environments and cluster computing to meet demands, but today even the fastest compute environments are constrained by the lagging performance of underlying storage.

NetApp Flash Pool is a storage cache option within the NetApp Virtual Storage Tier product family, available for NetApp FAS storage systems. A Flash Pool configures solid state drives (SSDs) and hard disk drives (HDDs) into a single storage pool, known as an “aggregate” in NetApp parlance, with the SSDs providing a fast response time cache for volumes that are provisioned on the Flash Pool aggregate. In this lab evaluation, NetApp commissioned Demartek to evaluate the effectiveness of Flash Pool with different types and numbers of hard disk drives using an online transaction processing (OLTP) database workload, and to evaluate the performance of Flash Pool in a clustered Data ONTAP environment during a cluster storage node failover scenario. In the report, you’ll dis cover how Demartek test engineers documented a 283% gain in IOPS and a reduction in latency by a factor of 66x after incorporating NetApp Flash Pool technology.
