Scality RING to power Los Alamos National Laboratory

Scality RING storage proven at 28.5 Gigabytes per second
San Francisco, CA – October 27th, 2015

Scality, the storage that powers digital business, today announced the production deployment of the Scality RING to power Los Alamos National Laboratory’s (LANL) Trinity supercomputer, projected to be one of the world’s fastest. Trinity, part of the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Advanced Simulation and Computing (ASC) Program, is expected to be the first platform large and fast enough to begin to accommodate finely resolved 3D calculations for mission-critical simulations. As part of the deployment, Scality is also working together with Los Alamos on MarFS, an open source software project that brings the power of object storage to all large-scale research computing environments, including the U.S. Department of Energy.

“Erasure protected highly parallel object storage is a critical part of the future lab HPC storage architecture. This ‘campaign storage’ is where we are able to provide persistence and durability for simulation runs from Trinity. Each individual simulation run can generate single files of over one petabyte in size. Our Scality RING deployment has been able to write data at 28.5 GB/s – the fastest object storage we’ve ever fielded,” said Gary Grider, High Performance Computing (HPC) Division Leader at Los Alamos.

Scality is also working with Los Alamos on MarFS, an innovative, open source, scalable namespace technology. MarFS gives end users a virtualized view of their storage environment and a global namespace across POSIX and non-POSIX data repositories, including the Scality RING.

“The idea behind MarFS is to provide a scalable POSIX like interface over object stores like Scality RING,” said Kyle Lamb, Acting Deputy Group Leader over HPC infrastructure at Los Alamos. “That way, we get the best of both worlds: a familiar look and feel for end users, where they don’t have to change their applications or move any data, and a massively scalable backend with better scaling and resiliency characteristics like the Scality RING.”

“Los Alamos National Laboratory has been an important customer and partner for Scality,” said Giorgio Regni, Chief Technology Officer of Scality. “Working with them on their next generation exascale environment is an amazing exercise in technological innovation and a proving ground for tremendously demanding storage workloads. We’re honored to collaborate with Los Alamos to contribute to the mission of the Stockpile Stewardship Program, and improve the security and safety of nuclear science.”

About Los Alamos National Laboratory

Los Alamos National Laboratory, a multidisciplinary research institution engaged in strategic science on behalf of national security, is operated by Los Alamos National Security, LLC, a team composed of Bechtel National, the University of California, BWX Technologies, Inc. and URS for the Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration.

Los Alamos enhances national security by ensuring the safety and reliability of the U.S. nuclear stockpile, developing technologies to reduce threats from weapons of mass destruction, and solving problems related to energy, environment, infrastructure, health, and global security concerns.
