Many of our research customers are trying to manage multiple petabytes of data for their research projects with multiple users and/or processes - find out what OCF can do to help
When we consider the characteristics of HPC storage, we see many overlaps with those of large-scale research data storage. There are potentially hundreds or thousands of users and/or processes requiring simultaneous storage access, the storage needs to be highly available, and often multiple petabytes of capacity are required. Many of our research storage solutions are based on the same parallel file systems as HPC storage, but often augmented to facilitate multi-protocol access, multi-site replication requirements, and additional tiers of storage.
We work with a range of storage technology partners right from in-memory storage, NVMe, SSD, spinning disk, tape and cloud. Whether you need high IOPS file storage or cost affective capacity, we can architect a solution to meet your requirements.
OCF understands that metadata creation and curation are key to gaining value and insight from vast quantities of research data, however, can also take up far too much valuable time.
Using the latest in metadata generation tools combined with a rich, policy based metadata engine, we provide an end to end metadata management solution that ingests, tags and indexes your data. Transform obfuscated disparate pools of storage into a valuable resource that you can draw on to enhance your research rather than hinder it.
