Object Storage Economics for a Parallel File System

HCSF makes it easier and more affordable for clients to leverage the economics and scalability of object storage. By integrating with HCP object storage, this powerful solution removes the complexity and expense of having to scale with expensive NVMe or manage complex data silos.

Integration with HCP
  • DATA WRITTEN TO NVME FLASH
  • HOT DATA TRACKED WITH METADATA
  • ACTIVE HOT DATA REMAINS IN FLASH
  • IDLE DATA MOVED TO OBJECT STORAGE
  • DATA RECALLED TO FLASH AS NECESSARY

BONUS: CAPACIT Y SAFET Y NET ENSURES NVME IS NOT EXHAUSTED

Object Storage Examples
