Pure Storage: Flexing Muscles with Flash for Mega Scale HPC Metadata Workloads
DescriptionSemiconductor chip designs are getting more complex over time. The packing density of transistors on silicon are getting denser. Designing and fracturing these chips are not simple and easy. The EDA tools used to perform logical and physical verifications generate a massive amount of metadata operations in high file count environment that requires compute and data platform at scale. Most businesses end up over provisioning data platforms while adding a greater number of computes to achieve metadata performance at scale in high performance compute (HPC) environment. FlashBlade from Pure Storage provides linear metadata performance scalability for HPC workloads at a much higher rate from traditional storage platforms.
