IBM Spectrum Scale V5 with Expert Architectural Design and Support
Applied Data Systems ExtremeStor is based on the latest and most innovative IBM Spectrum Scale release v5, with expert architectural design and performance tuning by globally acknowledged IBM Spectrum Scale experts. Applied Data Systems delivers IBM Spectrum Scale on fully integrated, top quality, industry standard hardware for maximum performance, reliability and data protection. Expert support is provided by Applied Data Systems engineers, backed by IBM second level support.
Accelerate Life Science, Machine Learning and Research Workflows
Shown above, data is ingested from high output instruments, sequencers, cameras, and microscopes into ExtremeStor high-performance, multi-tier, single namespace storage. Data is then processed and analyzed by the AgilityFlex Compute Cluster, also provided by Applied Data Systems. ExtremeStor storage provides the cluster the necessary high throughput and low latency to accelerate data hungry compute node processing, speeding completion.
Results files are stored back on ExtremeStor shared storage where researchers access data from their workstations over standard NFS/SMB protocols to perform local workstation-scale data analysis or kick off subsequent HPC-scale analysis on the AgilityFlex Cluster – where it can access data quickly again. Cold data can be migrated by policy to low-cost, high-capacity drives – within the same namespace – without the added complexity or expense of tiering to external object or cloud storage. External tiering (tape, object, cloud) is also available.
