Custom Parallel Storage Solutions for HPC and AI

EXAScaler is a custom parallel storage deployment for HPC & AI clusters.

Built on Lustre technology, DDN EXAScaler solutions augment with enterprise level hardening and additional features. Every parallel storage solution from Microway and DDN is architected for high performance, provides near linear scaling inside the appliance, and has the potential for expansion up to hundreds of petabytes.

Why EXAScaler?

Ultra-High Performance

Keep pace with demanding HPC and AI codes, large groups of users, and diverse I/O mixes. EXAScaler solutions have the dedicated, high bandwidth, hardware architecture your toughest workloads need.

Limitless Scalability

EXAScaler does that: scale effortlessly from terabytes to petabytes to exabytes. Keep up with the explosion of data in your organization.

Best Blend of Community and Enterprise Features

EXAScaler has roots in community Lustre code and can be managed by those with open-source Lustre expertise. Yet it also adds new enterprise features and functionality and comes with 24×7 enterprise support.

Custom Architected

Microway and DDN experts. Whether that’s a capacity + performance metric, a workload, an I/O profile, or a design ready for enormous capacity expansion, our teams can tailor the EXAScaler solution to you.
