DataDirect Networks expands worldwide HPC footprint; Powers over two-thirds of the world's 100 fastest supercomputers

5 Feb 2013 Sunnyvale - Over two-thirds of the world's 100 fastest supercomputers are powered by DataDirect Networks (DDN), according to the latest rankings published by Top500.org. With over 170 systems on the world-renowned listing, in 2012 DDN award-winning products saw increased adoption by the HPC community by 20 percent year-over-year among systems listed on the Top500.org November 2012 list.

Delivering the highest level of platform scalability and performance efficiency, DDN products enable HPC clusters to accelerate discovery and minimize the cost of computing.

DDN supports more supercomputers and HPC clusters than any other storage vendor, and provides more total storage bandwidth to the Top 500 than all other storage vendors combined.

Notable new DDN customers in the Top500 list include no. 6, Germany's Leibniz Rechenzentrum; no. 17, the Tokyo Institute of Technology; no. 23, the U.K.'s University of Edinburgh, and no 24, the National Computational Infrastructure of Australian National University.

DDN also is the only vendor with Top500 customers on each continent that had Top500 sites on the November list.

"The global topic of HPC is more vital than ever as 'Big Data' computing has democratized much of the requirements and corresponding technologies that DDN has been investing in for over a year. At the highest end of scale - whether in HPC, in web scale computing environments or with high-scale Big Data analytics - our solutions, experience, and global partner network have established DDN as the de facto standard for scalable and efficient data-intensive computing infrastructure. We continue to invest heavily in our massively scalable storage portfolio of products to exceed the expectations of our customers all around the world - making a difference today and bridging the market to the exascale era", stated Erwan Menard, chief operating officer, DDN.
