Key Features

Spend Less on HPC/AI Storage and More on CPU/GPU Compute Nodes

HPE Cray Storage Systems C500 uses the same cost-effective open source architecture that was selected for 100% of the United States DOE exascale supercomputers.123

Avoid capacity-based file system licensing either by terabyte storage capacity or storage drive as the embedded file systems are owned by vibrant communities and not by a single company.

Leverage a hybrid storage architecture that exploits the strengths of different storage media (solid state and spinning disk) while avoiding their weaknesses.

Achieve on-budget and balanced HPC/AI systems to navigate unprecedented data explosions.

Remove I/O Bottlenecks Hindering Your HPC/AI Initiatives

HPE Cray Storage Systems C500 features a shared file storage that can read and write (r/w) data fast enough to keep your CPU/GPU compute node investment fully-utilized.

Remove job pipeline congestion and prevent missed deadlines with just three rack units to leverage up to 80 gigabyte per second read and 60 gigabyte per second write performance.

Compress CPU/GPU compute node wait times during the critical checkpointing and restart process for long-running HPC/AI jobs.

Leverage AI acceleration technologies like NVIDIA GPUDirect Storage (GS) to bypass the CPU and achieve superb bandwidth.

Get Unified Support for Your Entire HPC/AI Infrastructure Stack

As part of your strategic infrastructure plan, the HPE Cray Storage Systems C500 provides unified support accountability for your full infrastructure stack.

Get solutions faster with customized software updates from the Hewlett Packard Enterprise R&D team for your specific issues–solutions, which later get embedded into the open-source file system for the benefit of the whole community.

Avoid production disruptions when migrating to your next HPC/AI storage infrastructure with HPE Accelerated Migration Services which helps generate value from your ageing infrastructure while your modern infrastructure is prepared for deployment.
