Fujitsu Releases File System Software For HPC cluster Systems


Fujitsu today announced the launch of FEFS, a scalable file system software package for building file systems for x86 HPC clusters in Japan.

FEFS is software for x86 HPC cluster systems - multiple x86 servers for parallel processing - that enables high-speed parallel distributed processing of very large amounts of read/write transactions from the compute nodes. Fujitsu claims that the software achieves the world's highest throughput speed of 1 TB/s from the compute nodes to the file system. In addition, it includes features for system scalability, reliability for zero operational downtime.

Fujitsu is offering file system solutions that combine its PRIMERGY x86 servers with its ETERNUS storage system and the new FEFS.

Computer-based analysis and simulation can be used to reduce costs and shorten development times. It is currently being actively used in manufacturing and many other industries. Increasingly, x86 HPC clusters, which use multiple x86 servers for parallel processing, are becoming the dominant platform used for such analyses and simulations.

Prices start from 21,430,000JP for the smallest configuration, which includes four PRIMERGY RX300 S6 servers (with InfiniBand connection), three ETERNUS DX80 S2 storage units, and FEFS license

Main features of FEFS:

- It enables scalability of file systems from terabyte-scale systems to a maximum of 8 exabytes (1,000 petabytes), depending on data volume requirements.
- It can be used as a file system offering high price-performance for clusters consisting of several dozen nodes, and it can be used for large scale clusters comprised of up to a million servers.
- It enables the configuration of systems consisting of 10,000 storage systems with the world's highest throughput speed of 1 TB/s.
- It achieves metadata management performance capable of creating several tens of thousands of files per second, approximately 1-3 times the performance of Lustre.
- Due to built-in redundancies at all levels of the file system (such as disk RAID configuration, InfiniBand network multipath configuration, and configurations of multiple servers and storage units), it enables failovers while jobs are being executed.
- Fair share features for allocating resources among users prevent a particular user from monopolizing I/O processing resources.
- Priority control settings for the operation of each node guarantees I/O processing bandwidth for each node.
- Directory level quota functions enable efficient use of disk capacity by monitoring and managing fine levels of file system activities.
