Bull and Xyratex Announce Reseller Partner Agreement and Major Design Win at DKRZ

Bull and Xyratex have entered into a worldwide reseller partner agreement enabling Bull to resell ClusterStor(TM) solutions. Collectively, bullx supercomputers and ClusterStor solutions provide extreme performance and outstanding energy efficiency to HPC users -- a direct result of the performance of ClusterStor, a Lustre(R) integrated data storage appliance, and bullx supercomputer capabilities which include direct liquid cooled blades. The reseller arrangement builds upon the established relationship between Bull and Seagate which includes both technical as well as customer engagements. This includes a recent contract award with Deutsches Klimarechenzentrum (DKRZ) for Bull to design and install a 3-petaflop bullx B720 supercomputer with 45 petabytes (45PB) of ClusterStor CS9000 parallel storage capable of 1TB/s performance. DKRZ is the national climate computing centre located in Hamburg, Germany providing HPC and high capacity data management for climate science. The new Bull and Seagate joint solution, named HLRE-3, will provide up to 20x application performance while requiring the same power resources as its HLRE-II predecessor.

Xyratex Enters into Reseller Agreement with MEGWARE Computer Vertrieb Und Service GmbH

Xyratex announced a formal reseller agreement with MEGWARE Computer Vertrieb und Service GmbH. New reseller agreement accelerates the adoption of clusterstor high performance storage solutions across the European HPC market.

Xyratex Adds ClusterStor(TM) Secure Data Appliance to the Family of High Performance Scale-Out Storage Solutions

Xyratex Ltd. announced a new addition to the ClusterStor(TM) family of High Performance Computing (HPC) and Big Data engineered storage solutions -- the ClusterStor Secure Data Appliance (SDA). Designed to meet government ICD 503 and Cross Domain Solution (CDS) requirements, the ClusterStor SDA solution provides multilevel security capabilities combined with the industry's fast storage performance and large data capacity available now for productivity critical HPC and Big Data applications. This new ClusterStor solution features end-to-end integration, management and world-class support providing unmatched capability and investment protection in addition to the new multilevel security enhancements. The ClusterStor SDA will be available through Xyratex reseller partners in 2014. With its multilevel security capabilities, the ClusterStor SDA provides the means to manage multiple data types and multiple security classifications in a single file system on a single network, supporting high-speed data storage throughput and massively scalable data processing. The ClusterStor SDA is ideally suited for mission critical government applications, such as Geospatial imagery capture which requires high performance ingest rates, massively parallel data access to support intensive data analysis and large data storage capacity archive. The ClusterStor SDA provides security systems administrators the capability to protect against internal as well as external data leaks or malicious attacks throughout the data life cycle process. Further, organizations can realize significant cost reductions in capital expenditures and operational expenses by consolidating separate compute, network and data storage silos used now to segregate security classifications into a single ClusterStor SDA multilevel security solution.
