High Performance Storage System

Incremental Scalability
Based on storage needs and deployment schedules, HPSS scales incrementally by adding computer, network and storage resources. A single HPSS namespace can scale from petabytes of data to exabytes of data, from millions of files to billions of files, and from a few file-creates per second to thousands of file-creates per second.
About HPSS   :    HPSS Releases   :    HPSS Version 8.2.0

The following is an overview of three new features that can be found in HPSS 8.2.0.

New to HPSS 8.2.0

Rumbler API Support

HPSS provides an API to allow unified storage namespace (USN) applications to incorporate snapshots of the HPSS namespace.

USN applications provide a higher-level view of storage in data centers, including parallel file systems, project space, community and campaign stores, and archive namespaces. Such applications provide high-speed search capabilities and additionally allow annotation of data sets with custom metadata for multiple purposes including, but not limited to:

  • Assign provenance e.g. Digital Object Identifiers (DOI)
  • Describe access frequency (hot, warm, cold) to drive data migration policies
  • Classify data with arbitrary tags to assist with workflow automation
  • Calculate/apply hashes for purposes of data integrity checking, de-duplication, etc.

Parallel FTP Update: Support for MLST

MLST functionality is added to PFTP. MLST provides data about exactly the object named on its command line and no others.

Parallel FTP Update: Support Checksum

The PFTP client and server now support setting and getting HPSS file hash information. This information is the E2EDI file hash metadata stored along with the bitfile - this is not the legacy User-defined Attributes-based file hash.

ISC 2022 is the event for high performance computing, machine learning, and data analytics, and will be in Frankfurt, Germany from May 29th through June 2nd, 2022 - Learn More. As we have done each year (pre-pandemic), we are scheduling and meeting with folks attending the conference. Please contact us to schedule a HPSS Single Client Briefing to meet with the IBM business and technical leaders of HPSS.

HPSS @ STS 2022 - postponed
The 4th Annual Storage Technology Showcase is in the planning phase, but HPSS expects to support the event later this year. Check out their web site - Learn More.

HPSS @ MSST 2022
The 37th International Conference on Massive Storage Systems and Technology will be in Santa Clara, California in May of 2022 - Learn More. Please contact us if you would like to meet with the IBM business and technical leaders of HPSS at Santa Clara University.

2022 HUF
The 2022 HPSS User Forum (HUF) is in the planning phase. The 2021 HUF was hosted online for six days spread across three weeks in October 2021 with no admission cost. We are planning to meet in person this year. Please check back next quarter for details. This will be a great opportunity to hear from HPSS users, collaboration developers, testers, support folks and leadership (from IBM and DOE Labs). Please contact us if you are not a customer but would like to attend.

The 2022 international conference for high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis will be in Dallas, TX from November 14th through 17th, 2022 - Learn More. As we have each year (pre-pandemic), we are scheduling and meeting with customers via IBM Single Client Briefings. Please contact your local IBM client executive or contact us to schedule a HPSS Single Client Briefing to meet with the IBM business and technical leaders of HPSS.
