ORNL recently partnered with Oracle to test some of the database technology company’s new firmware in a collaborative laboratory environment inside the OLCF’s High-Performance Storage System. Oracle is providing five of its enterprise-class tape drives, while ORNL is providing the resources, networking, and manpower for the testing environment.
Staff members at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility are upgrading the center’s data transfer service to increase performance and speed while minimizing the risk of system outages.
Ongoing upgrades to the OLCF’s data storage services are expanding users’ opportunities to extract science from large datasets.
OLCF staff have invested heavily in making sure users can access data quickly while also taking steps to keep data safe.
The OLCF’s RAIT system allows incoming data to be striped across four tapes, but it also has an extra tape—called a parity tape—that can allow the data to be reconstructed in the event that a tape is damaged or lost.
A new data quality assurance tool developed by the Technology Integration Group at the OLCF will help protect that data by validating the integrity of the High Performance Storage System (HPSS) archive.
The OLCF recently relocated the center’s archive tape library to a centralized location with a more controlled environment, resulting in better overall availability and uptime for OLCF system users and better resiliency of the media.
HPCwire sat down with Galen Shipman to discuss strategies for coping with the “3 Vs”—variety, velocity, and volume—of the big data that climate science generates.
