ST. LOUIS, Nov. 30, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Huawei OceanStor Pacific Storage (Huawei HPDA Lab) took second place in the IO500 list, which is one of the world’s leading HPC storage performance rankings.
Huawei OceanStor Pacific storage is next-generation intelligent distributed storage that has been used commercially on a large scale around the world thanks to its:
- Strong support for hybrid workloads: Running with OceanFS, a parallel file system developed by Huawei, this distributed storage system uses a series of advanced technologies such as DHT directory partitioning, I / O passthrough Extended and reduced I / O aggregation, as well as – Granularity disk space management to provide high bandwidth for large files and high IOPS for small files. This meets the different needs of different hybrid workloads.
- Reliable Data Protection: OceanStor Pacific leverages Erasure Coding (EC) technology that implements N + M data protection, ensuring enterprise-grade data reliability and availability, while providing greater available capacity and utilization higher resources.
The IO500® is one of the world’s leading rankings for HPC storage performance. It has been widely recognized by research institutes including universities, national laboratories and commercial enterprises. Since november 2017, the IO500 list has been published at major HPC conferences (SC in the United States and ISC in Germany). In this context, I / O performance has become an important indicator for measuring the efficiency of supercomputer applications. Specifically, it measures storage performance using two key metrics: data bandwidth (GB / s) and read / write speed (IOPS). Storage systems are evaluated by simulating different I / O models, from light to heavy workloads. Scores are obtained from the geometric mean of the performance values in all scenarios. By limiting the baseline to 10 nodes, the test questions the performance of a single storage system client. The 10-node list is a good frame of reference for users because it closely represents the scale that an actual parallel program can achieve and better reflects the I / O performance that the storage system can provide in a real application. .
