In partnership with HPCwire, SoftIron® takes a deep-dive into how HPC is going mainstream, and why Ceph - the leading open source storage platform - is the ideal storage solution.
High-performance computing (HPC) is going mainstream. With the increased use of artificial intelligence, machine learning and analytics on large datasets, and ever-more sophisticated (and realistic) simulations and modeling, there is growing pressure to find solutions that balance performance and costs.
Given the large volumes of data now used in most applications, finding the right storage solution is particularly important. High-performance storage can be incredibly expensive; economical storage can impede workflows. And many storage solutions may not easily scale to accommodate future needs.
Increasingly, one overlooked solution that is starting to get renewed interest is Ceph. Ceph is open-source software designed to provide highly scalable object-, block- and file-based storage under a unified system. It enables software-defined storage (SDS) that can be used to provide a massively scalable storage solution for modern workloads like cloud infrastructure, data analytics, and other high-performance computing (HPC) applications.
