Jump to: navigation, search

UVT HPC GPFS provides a data storage system which consists of two storage nodes (NSDs) and three different data storage enclosures and systems (IBM DS3400, DS400 and IBM NetApp 7.x family). All the storage systems are exported over fiber channel (dual 4 Gbps and 8 Gbps) to the storage nodes. All the clients (services, nodes etc.) have access to the storage space using the GPFS protocol over Infiniband QDR (40 Gbps) connection (configured in fail-over mode). The total available space is about 50TB from which 10%, 5TB, is dedicated to the project.
