Big Parity® from StreamScale leads the industry in RAID reliability and processing speed, eliminating data loss and corruption due to disk failure, service errors, silent data corruption, and unrecoverable read errors. 30X faster than competitive RAID systems, Big Parity is the only product that provides advanced Verified Erasure Coding® which enable up to 127 parity drives to keep data safe and accurate during long data analysis cycles or rebuilds.

HPC

No solution area needs Big Parity more than High Performance Computing (HPC)

  • Petascale systems are in place, more are planned for Europe, the U.S. and Asia
  • Multiple applications have been run at sustained trans-petaflop speeds
  • Exascale planning initiatives are already under way

From satellites and rockets to seismic data for oil and gas exploration to the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN biological research into human DNA, many HPC applications process petabytes of information to understand the workings of complex systems.  For example, CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is the world's leading laboratory for particle physics.  The LHC sends high energy protons smashing into each other at the speed of light with over 600 million collisions per second.  Experiments with the LHC will produce roughly 15 petabytes (15 million gigabytes) of data annually. After initial processing, this data is distributed to eleven large computer centers which in turn share the data with over 160 “Tier-2” centers in 34 countries for specific analysis tasks. Data loss or corruption can affect some many people, institutions and research projects. The latest information on the growth of HPC is tracked by IDC IDC HPC Market Update
