Boston, Mass. (PRWEB) September 02, 2014
Terascala, the industry leader in HPC management software, today announced a partnership with a global IT services and solutions provider, to expand its integrated support model that ensures system-wide high availability for HPC storage appliances. This third party organization is a leading contributor to open source Lustre and provides Terascala customers with an efficient Lustre escalation path.
Terascala is breaking new ground in support by embedding its TeraOS software in HPC appliances. TeraOS detects a wide range of data, performance, and reliability problems with hundreds of sensors across each appliance. Its phone-home capability sends a comprehensive health snapshot directly to support experts for triage and remediation. Terascala’s goal is to eliminate system downtime and optimize system performance by removing bottlenecks, balancing workloads, and providing insight into system problems. By contrast, unmanaged or roll-your-own HPC solutions have administrators sifting through dozens of logs to diagnose system problems and wasting days on the phone with support.
“Terascala’s customer service utilized TeraOS to provide outstanding support for the entire storage appliance and has been a key component of our success with HiPerGator,” commented Dr. Erik Deumens, director of Research Computing for the University of Florida.
“It’s not enough to provide reactive help desk support for HPC systems that have thousands of potential failure points and can contain tens of petabytes of data,” declared Alan Swahn, Terascala's vice president of marketing. “To provide system-wide high availability and optimized performance, our embedded TeraOS management software continuously monitors, analyzes, and orchestrates problem resolution. Solutions range from delivering intelligence on applications, infrastructure, and components to pre-emptively emailing details to support for immediate action.”
Terascala—the High Performance Computing (HPC) management company—has pioneered software that lowers total cost of ownership by managing and optimizing data, performance, and reliability. Savings are quickly realized through minimizing downtime, moving data very fast between scratch and inexpensive backup storage, and optimizing workload throughput. The company’s TeraOS software provides system-level high availability to reduce costly degraded performance and downtime. It integrates workload, network, storage, and file system monitoring, analysis, pre-emptive failure alerts, and fast failover. Terascala’s real-time analysis and phone-home support keeps these highly complex systems up and running at peak performance. Support costs are minimized with no HPC or parallel file system expertise required.
