Supercomputer gets super storage.

The US’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory has deployed the ultimate in high performance computing (HPC) storage, with more than 40PB (400 00 000 GB) of DataDirect Networks (DDN) SAN capacity providing 1TB per second (1000 GBps) of throughput to support the world’s fastest supercomputer, Titan.

Titan has 18,688 compute nodes, each comprising an AMD 16-core Opteron 6274 processor for a total of 299,008 CPU cores, that is linked to an Nvidia K20X graphics processing unit (GPU) and plugged into the NCCS’s Cray XK7.

Titan is capable of 27Tflops – 27 trillion calculations per second – performance and is the hardware host for the Spider II file system. This is built on the Lustre open source parallel file system that scales to billions of files.
