More than two-thirds of the top 100 and one-third of top 500 supercomputers are powered by DDN. Notable new DDN deployments among the top 100 systems include no. 2, Oak Ridge National Laboratory; no. 6, Texas Advanced Computing Center at the University of Texas in Austin; no. 11, Total; no. 24, the National Energy Scientific Computing Center, and no. 46, Indiana University.
With major deployments worldwide, DDN also boasts partnerships with leading HPC systems vendors and providers including Bull, Cray, Dell, Fujitsu, HP, IBM and SGI.
With a mature and innovative product portfolio to address the complete Big Data and HPC data work flow, DDN continues to show strong gains among leading commercial HPC practices, including Energy Exploration, Aerospace, Automotive, Defense, Finance, Internet and more.
According to a recent IDC market study, storage is the fastest growing area in HPC sites . As more and more enterprises look to adopt the tools and technologies used in today's leading HPC centres, DDN is also seeing an expanding number of commercial use cases for DDN storage.
Delivering the highest level of platform scalability and performance efficiency, DDN products enable HPC clusters to accelerate discovery and minimize the cost of computing.
John Josephakis, Senior Vice President of Global HPC Sales at DDN, stated: "For HPC organisations where performance, reliability, scalability and TCO are critical, DDN continues to be the trusted world leader in high-scale cluster computing. We are proud to be the fastest technology that is powering a third of the world's most powerful computers. This latest TOP500 ranking affirms DDN's commitment to solving the challenges of high-scalability - and we're re-investing our successes in the next generation of scale to continue our quest to minimize the cost of computing in the exascale era."
