The Challenges

The U.S. DOE’s Oak Ridge National Laboratories (ORNL) amasses huge volumes of climate data, and were challenged with having that data distributed across many different storage systems. Driven by the need to consolidate ”data parking”—their HPC archive, they sought a modern storage solution that would bring data durability, performance and ease of use. They found it all in Scality RING.

Scality object storage offered as part of the organization’s CADES program, a “Fully integrated infrastructure offering compute and data resources for ORNL researchers.”

The Solution

ORNL wanted a modern storage solution that gives flexibility and versatility while handling the massive amounts of data generated by its HPC applications

  • Hardware flexibility to allow ORNL to benefit from the “commodity curve” across multi-generational growth
  • Speed impressive data write and access performance was compelling
  • Scalability to solve the problem of managing massive and growing amount of data
  • Efficiency and ease of use no more managing tapes across generations
