High-Performance Computing Solution Overview

The Highest Performing Storage for the Most Demanding Needs

High-performance computing (HPC) provides vast amounts of processing power to areas like engineering, research and think-tank applications. Keeping up with these computing demands requires high performance storage. With sustained read capabilities of over 85,000 IOPS{{Footnote.N52169}} and the ability to serve over 550MB/second, per drive, arrays built on Kingston datacenter SSDs can provide ample performance to keep up with even the largest demands.

No Waiting for Storage

Kingston datacenter SSDs provide sub-400-microsecond latency on read operations, which means practically no waiting for the storage platform to feed information to HPC clusters. The faster the information meets computational tasking, the higher the performance of your HPC environment. Coupled with the high-throughput capabilities of Kingston datacenter SSDs, your HPC platform will perform at top efficiency.

Real Savings in Power and Cooling

HPC platforms can require massive amounts of data stored on large arrays. When storage is measured by the petabyte, keeping those arrays online and operating efficiently requires a large amount of power. Green initiatives are pushing organizations to explore new ways to cut environmental impact. Storage arrays built using Kingston datacenter SSDs consume a fraction of the power of their spinning disk counterparts, often on the order of 80% less over 15K SAS hard drive arrays. Less power means lower operating costs, potentially saving hundreds, if not thousands of dollars per month, depending on the size of your arrays.
