The Art of High Performance Scale-Out Storage

 The ClusterStorTM family architecture is built on 25 years of Seagate (formerly Xyratex) enterprise-class storage design and Lustre®, an open source high performance parallel file system typically used for scale-out computing. ClusterStor’s architecture:

  • Tightly integrates Lustre1 into a performance and capacity optimized solution perfect for HPC, big data and analytics
  • Removes complexities associated with deploying and maintaining traditional Lustre environments using off the shelf components from multiple vendors
  • Enables integrated storage solutions that provide the high productivity computing with the industry's highest levels of efficiency, reliability, availability and serviceabilit
  • Supported by ClusterStor Professional Services

1The name Lustre is a combination of the words Linux and cluster.
