  • Patent number: 9158540
    Abstract: Solid-State Drive (SSD) burst buffer nodes are interposed into a parallel supercomputing cluster to enable fast burst checkpoint of cluster memory to or from nearby interconnected solid-state storage with asynchronous migration between the burst buffer nodes and slower more distant disk storage. The SSD nodes also perform tasks offloaded from the compute nodes or associated with the checkpoint data. For example, the data for the next job is preloaded in the SSD node and very fast uploaded to the respective compute node just before the next job starts. During a job, the SSD nodes perform fast visualization and statistical analysis upon the checkpoint data. The SSD nodes can also perform data reduction and encryption of the checkpoint data.

  • Patent number: 8589550
    Abstract: A data processing system includes compute nodes, at least one metadata server, iSCSI storage access servers, and data storage devices. The metadata server services requests from the compute nodes for file mapping information identifying iSCSI LUNs and logical blocks of file data. The storage access servers service iSCSI I/O requests from the compute nodes, and report server loading to the metadata server. A Gigabit Ethernet IP network transfers read and write data between the compute nodes and the storage access servers. The storage access servers are linked to the data storage devices for parallel access to iSCSI LUNs of the file data in the data storage devices. The metadata server is programmed for server load balancing by indicating to the compute nodes respective ones of the storage access servers that should be used for access to the iSCSI LUNs.

  • Patent number: 8560569
    Abstract: Accordingly a method and interface allows an attribute data base used by an Information Manager to be quickly populated and accurately maintained. A single Bulk Attribute Retrieval Request triggers the primary storage device to collect object attribute information. The method allows for selective collection of objects and attributes by providing filters and attribute lists in the Requests. The Request may be used to provide an incremental scan with appropriate time stamp filtering. In addition, the size of the results can be controlled by the IM by eliminating attributes that are not of interest to the IM. The Request is advantageously issued over a FileMover interface, which is an HTTP connection, and encoded in XML, allowing the IM to easily customize the Request as desired.

  • Patent number: 8352435
    Abstract: In a synchronous remote mirroring system, as a host computer writes data to primary storage in a primary data storage system, remote copy data is transferred from the primary data storage system to a secondary storage system in which secondary storage is maintained as a remote mirror of the primary storage. The primary data storage system performs data reduction upon the remote copy data prior to transmitting the remote copy data in a reduced to the secondary data storage system. The secondary data storage system returns an acknowledgement of receipt of the remote copy data upon receipt of the remote copy data in the reduced form, and later reverses the data reduction upon the remote copy data in the reduced form to produce data written to the secondary storage to maintain the secondary storage as the remote mirror of the primary storage.
