Ace Computers CEO John Samborski stated: "We are building clusters that are more and more powerful. So we recognized that storage access speed was becoming an issue. BeeGFS has proven to be an excellent, cost-effective solution for our clients and a valuable addition to our portfolio of partners."
An Ace Computers computational physics client was one of the first to take advantage of the Ace/BeeGFS solution. The client stated: "We are continually adding capacity to our Ace Computers servers and when we do, the BeeGFS solution scales seamlessly. Basically all you have to do is plug in more servers. It is 100% redundant. If there is a crash, everything just fails over. There is no downtime, which is why we are switching everything over to this."
ThinkParQ's BeeGFS enables storage clustering by transparently distributing data across an arbitrary number of storage servers. This delivers the aggregate throughput of all the servers in the system; resulting in high streaming throughput and high IOPS; and allowing parallel data access from all compute nodes at the same time.
BeeGFS has a number of instrumental features that make it ideal for demanding, high-performance, high-throughput workloads typically found in applications such as HPC, life sciences, deep learning, Big Data analytics and financial services.
"Leveraging our supercomputers with BeeGFS is a win for all sides, most especially our clients", John Samborski stated. Leading custom computer builder and HPC cluster specialist, Ace Computers currently holds the following contracts: SEWP V, CCS-2, GSA, WSIPC, PEPPM, State of Wisonson, State of Georgia.
