Elastifile Demonstrates How to Scale, Accelerate and Burst Critical HPC Applications for Hybrid Clouds at SC17

SANTA CLARA, Calif., November 7, 2017 – Elastifile, the enterprise hybrid cloud data management company, today announced that it will be exhibiting its Cross-Cloud Data Fabric at SC17, the international conference for high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis, in Booth No. 781 of the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, November 13-16.

Many organizations struggle with traditional storage infrastructure composed of overly expensive silos that cannot meet the IOPS, bandwidth and latency requirements of high-performance computing applications. In addition, many HPC customers want to enable true cloud bursting and multi-site collaborative workflows, creating functional requirements that their traditional storage options cannot support. At SC17, Elastifile will show the HPC community how it solves these challenges for all HPC workloads at any scale, whether on-premises, in the cloud, or spanning both.  The company’s high-performance, distributed, scale-out file services and object tiering can be deployed on any standard servers or in the public cloud to deliver:

  • Massive parallelism and high, consistent IOPS with sub-2 millisecond latency, at any scale, for both small and large files
  • Linearly scalable bandwidth to deliver rapid large-file access to parallel users and applications
  • A POSIX-compliant, shared global namespace enabling cloud bursting of HPC applications with no application refactoring required
  • Integrated object tiering for self-service, granular “check in” and “check out” of data into the high-performance distributed file system for active data processing

“When developing the Elastifile Cross-Cloud Data Fabric, our goal was to finally provide a storage solution that cost-effectively enables high-performance computing and hybrid cloud collaboration, while delivering security, reliability, self-service management and embracing forward-looking technology strategies,” said Shahar Frank, CTO and co-founder of Elastifile. “We look forward to showing attendees at SC17 how they can scale and consolidate their workloads with breakthrough performance and without application refactoring for the HPC hybrid cloud.”

SC17 is the premier international conference showcasing the many ways high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis lead to advances in scientific discovery, research, education and commerce.
