DataDirect Networks, Inc. Key Developments

DataDirect Networks Unveils its New Entry-Level, Turnkey Lustre Storage Appliance at the International Supercomputing Conference

DataDirect Networks unveiled its new entry-level, turnkey Lustre storage appliance at the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC). Expanding on this experience, the DDN EXAScaler™ 7000 (ES7K) leverages Lustre 2.5 pre-installed and fully optimized for DDN's high-density storage appliances. ES7K delivers enterprise-level features including simple management and monitoring interfaces, and HPC-level performance that optimizes both mixed and parallel I/O performance. DDN's ES7K delivers reliability and support combined with open source innovations to deliver the fast and high density Lustre appliance on the market. Built specifically for organizations with data-intensive, high-performance storage requirements, the ES7K provides a simple, cost-effective way to leverage the benefits of DDN's high-performance storage architecture with open-source Lustre file systems. As with all the DDN EXAScaler appliances, the ES7K offers unique DDN-developed Lustre features that are fully backed by Intel support. Simple to install, configure and manage, the ES7K scales out to deliver massive storage performance density with a broad feature set and the flexibility of open source. DDN ES7K advantages over competitive alternatives include: 3x faster performance: Maximizes ROI by delivering the high performance per rack unit for HPC applications. than 2x greater storage density: Starts at tens of terabytes and scales to nearly a petabyte of capacity by leveraging the high density per rack unit for optimal efficiency. The Lowest TCO: Starts with the smallest configuration and scales non-disruptively with additional ES7K building blocks. Simplest Deployment and Management: Configuration and deployment optimization features, integration with drive-to-file system monitoring, and metadata convergence options make the ES7K the ideal platform for migrating an application or an entire workflow to Lustre. The ES7K is scheduled for general availability in the third quarter of 2015.

European HPC Users Select DDN Solutions to Easily Deploy a Lustre Solution for the Most Efficient, Highest-Performance Acceleration of its Workloads

DDN announced three new European HPC users who have selected DDN solutions to easily deploy a Lustre solution for the most efficient, highest-performance acceleration of their workloads: CYFRONET, Public Health England, and Wroclaw Centre for Networking and Supercomputing. CYFRONET relies on DDN Lustre appliances to accelerate and optimize its big data workflows. By storing its generated data on DDN's cloud and big data storage systems, PHE is able to accelerate its sequencing service time to results from days to hours and improve public safety intervention. The Wroclaw Centre for Networking and Supercomputing employs DDN's EXAScaler appliance to support vital research such as the Prognocean project + service, which produces real-time predictions of sea level change with lead times up to three months.

DataDirect Networks Announces the Availability of the Latest Release of Advanced WOS Object Storage Platform

DataDirect Networks announced the availability of the latest release of its advanced WOS object storage platform. Its vast object storage leadership with more than 225 billion objects managed by DDN WOS, DDN continues to fuel its object storage momentum with the announcement of its new WOS 360 v2.0 release. WOS 360 2.0 offers a full suite of new options to expand use cases in enterprises, cloud, BYOD shared storage, deep archive, video streaming, and file sync and share offerings. WOS delivers: New lower cost capacity tier for long-term archive, offering deep archive for up to 30% lower cost than the platform's performance tier; 20% increased storage efficiency using the updated Global Object Assure (GOA) erasure coding; New ultra-high density enclosure that stores nearly 800 terabytes in a 4U array for deep archive; Expanded connectivity option that adds OpenStack Swift support to an already robust interface offering of S3, CIFS, NFS, GPFS, Lustre and native REST; Robust end-to-end security of the management layer, data in-flight and node-to-node security within the WOS ecosystem; and an easy turnkey appliance deployment model, which makes the WOS object storage platform an ideal solution for service providers, resale through the channel and deployment as a private cloud offering. DDN's WOS 360 2.0 enables secure public and private cloud deployments, and delivers efficient data protection options while reducing storage administration and cost. In addition to expanding use cases such as enterprise, cloud and file sync and share, it is ideal for data-intensive environments within media and entertainment, research, life sciences and education. Designed and priced to meet a wide variety of service provider, big data, private and public cloud models, many of the new WOS features are currently generally available and select security features will be available during the fourth quarter of this year.
