Best in class client throughput (3.5 GB/s writes and 4.0 GB/s reads with a single I/O stream on FDR Infiniband)
Best in class metadata performance: linear scalability through dynamic metadata namespace partitioning
Best in class storage throughput: BeeGFS® servers allow flexible choice of underlying file system to perfectly fit the given storage hardware.
Storage servers run on top of existing local filesystems. Clients and servers can be added to an existing system without any downtime.
Multiple networks and dynamic failover are supported for when network connections are down.
Multiple services can run on the same physical machine. This eliminates the need for external storage resources, providing a cost-efficient solution with simplified management.
The BeeGFS® servers are user space daemons and do not require special administration rights.
BeeGFS® also was designed with easy administration in mind. The GUI enables easy user management: cluster installation, storage service management, live throughput and health monitoring, file browsing, striping configuration, and more.
Data and metadata for each file are separated into stripes
Secure authentication process between client and server to protect sensitive data
Fair I/O option on user level to prevent a single user with multiple requests to stall other user requests
Storage high-availability based on replication
Automatic network failover
Runs on non-standard architectures
Optional server failover for external shared storage devices
