DDN names RAID Inc. a preferred Lustre reseller

5 Feb 2019 Santa Clara - RAID Inc. has been named a preferred reseller of DataDirect Networks' (DDN) distribution of Lustre. DDN's Lustre division develops the world's most scalable parallel file system software and offers deep technical support to its preferred partners. RAID Inc., an HPC storage provider, had demonstrated impressive sales and customer expansion with Lustre-based solutions prior to DDN's acquisition of the Intel Lustre division and continues to see strong demand. The new relationship will allow RAID Inc. customers to combine RAID's powerful platforms with the robust capabilities of Lustre along with the backing of DDN Lustre support in a simple-to-deploy solution.

The Lustre file system delivers true parallel performance and rock-solid stability needed for artificial intelligence (AI) and high-performance computing (HPC) workloads. DDN's Lustre software is architected for the enterprise, with comprehensive monitoring, robust data protection and linear scalability of capacity and performance. Lustre solutions start at capacities less than 100TB and scale to more that 12PB per rack.

"DDN has consistently been at the forefront of Lustre innovations and delivering solutions that address the most demanding data storage challenges. Today's announcement reinforces our mutual commitment to offering the broadest industry and functional expertise in the market and to delivering new infrastructure solutions that provide customers with complete, scalable Lustre file systems that deliver faster time to results and improved outcomes", stated Marc DiZoglio, president of RAID Inc. "RAID is also working on its first fully embedded DDN Lustre product, which will be fully vetted and recognized by Whamcloud for Level 3 services. We are very excited by the possibilities and advancements our co-development efforts will bring to customers."

DDN Lustre is the most advanced parallel storage software for data-intensive environments, on premise or in the Cloud. DDN's Lustre development team has been developing and supporting the most advanced parallel filesystem solutions for the toughest data challenges for more than 15 years. DDN's Lustre offering benefits from large scale automated testing to enhance stability, uptime, and performance and deep technical support to preferred partners.

Features and functionality include:

  • Embedded / Converged: Lowers TCO with converged storage and network and improves latency with a converged file system.
  • Installation / Configuration Tools: Simplifies the move to Lustre with data migration, installation and configuration tools.
  • Enterprise Features: High availability, security, strong authentication, multi-tenancy and quotas, among others.
  • Single, Scalable Name Space: Single application and end user view of data optimized for flash and/or HDD, in file or object storage, local or remote.
  • nDirectory Level Quotas: Flexibility in project-level quotas.
  • nData on Metadata: Improved small file performance.
  • nImproved Client Performance: Improved client performance for both small and large I/O for AI and HPC workloads.
  • Lustre Monitoring: Reduce complexity with Lustre's fine-grained file system monitoring.

"As the primary developer, maintainer, and technical support provider for Lustre software, DDN implements solutions for extreme, data-intensive environments", stated Paul Bloch, president and co-founder, DDN. "Having RAID Inc. so closely aligned with us provides a real advantage in delivering the most powerful solutions to customers."
