TACC Uses Lustre for Big Data “Corral”

“Corral” is the latest resource to be deployed by TACC that uses Lustre to wrangle petabytes of data:

“Corral will support database, file system and Web-based access, as well as other network protocols for storage and retrieval of data from local and remote sources. Corral’s high-performance parallel file system, based on Lustre, will be accessible from TACC’s world-class computational resources, Ranger and Lonestar. The system will also be accessible from Stallion, the world’s highest-resolution tiled display, and from Spur, TACC’s remote visualization system, enabling mathematical and visual analysis of petabyte-scale datasets. Corral will host Web applications and services for access to data from anywhere on the Internet.” Full Story


About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
