HPC Unified, Scalable Storage Solution

Raid Inc.'s unified, scalable high performance storage solution for high-performance applications has the industry’s lowest price-to-performance ratio and is powered by IBM’s General Parallel File System™ (GPFS).

The unified storage solution consolidates file and block-based access in a single-storage platform and supports various SAN and network topologies. It also simultaneously enables storage of file data, handles the block-based I/O and file system journaling.

These result in a cost-effective, scalable storage solution that provides virtually any performance that customers can want, with ease of administration and maintenance. At the same time, the solution is easily configurable for a variety of applications that demand either performance in IOPs or bandwidth. Capabilities include provisioning of parallel file systems, file exports (NFS/CIFS/GFS), clustered NFS, replication, snapshots, RAID, volume copy, a single global namespace and information lifecycle management (ILM) functions.
