Over 20 Academic Institutions Now Use Terascala High-Performance Computing Solutions

Terascala, the Fast Data company, today announced that it has deployed its high-performance storage solutions at over 20 universities across the United States. Terascala solutions are propelling some of the most diverse and computationally intensive research taking place on campuses today, from understanding the effects of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, to identifying the genetic roots of diseases, to modeling astrophysical flows and cosmic structures for understanding how new stars are formed.

Terascala provides the operating system that transforms block storage and controllers from Dell, EMC, and NetApp into an easy-to-manage storage appliance. By abstracting the complexities in individual components, Terascala-powered appliances deliver reliable, predictable throughput at hundreds of gigabytes per second, reducing run times to hours instead of days or weeks.

Computational research presents a very challenging environment for parallel file system storage because of the diversity of applications that exists among the academic community. High-performance computing centers typically serve as a central resource for the entire campus, supporting applications in computational chemistry and biology, genomic sequencing analysis, computational fluid design, finite element analysis, seismic processing, and financial modeling.

Two of the most recent clusters to come online include the George Washington University Colonial One and the University of Florida HiPerGator. GW’s Colonial One cluster was launched on June 25, 2013, to support all of the University’s computational computing needs. Colonial One includes a 300 terabyte Dell|Terascala HSS 4.5 storage appliance (DT-HSS).

The University of Florida’s HiPerGator has a peak speed of 150 trillion calculations per second, and includes a 2.88 petabyte Dell|Terascala HSS 4.5 storage appliance. “In the coming months, some 500 researchers and 160 teams with more than $175 million in research funding will be using HiPerGator to run their experiments,” said Dr. David Norton, Vice President for Research at the University of Florida. UF recently received an $8 million federal award from the National Nuclear Security Administration, along with the designation as a center of excellence, as a result of its high-performance computing capabilities.

“Having over 20 universities using our storage solutions is a significant accomplishment for Terascala,” said Steve Butler, CEO. “The fact that Terascala-powered storage is doing so well in these tough environments is a very strong indication of the robustness of the solution to perform well, as well as its ability to be easily tuned for very diverse workloads.”

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
