BeeGFS in Qlustar: ThinkParQ and Q-Leap cooperate

ThinkParQ, a newly founded Fraunhofer spin-off, and Q-Leap Networks have just announced a partnership under which BeeGFS will be integrated as a fully supported parallel file-system option in Qlustar.

This integrated out-of-the-box solution will enable data centers to build extremely fast storage for a wide range of workloads. BeeGFS is developed at the Fraunhofer Center for High Performance Computing in Kaiserslautern. With their strong background in HPC, the BeeGFS developers understand the need of HPC users for fast and scalable storage very well. Delivering extremely high streaming bandwidth for parallel workloads as well as excellent performance on a single I/O-stream, BeeGFS is a perfect fit for a variety of workloads. Its design is extremely flexible and implements techniques, such as data striping, full distribution of metadata, RDMA access as well as data replication and HSM. Being able to run all services of the file-system together on the same machine, BeeGFS is also a perfect choice for workloads such as BigData analytics, that combine storage and compute on the same machines.

Integrating BeeGFS with Qlustar will create a software stack that allows easy roll-out and management of parallel storage starting from bare metal. It will help compute and data centers to keep up with the growing demand for both storage performance and capacity. Over the next couple of months, Q-Leap will integrate the BeeGFS packages and modules into Qlustar to support ready-to-use deployment of the BeeGFS storage architecture. Qlustar's management framework QluMan will then provide both console and GUI based components for powerful and controlled configuration/operation of a BeeGFS cluster and make it extremely easy to manage.
