New Storage Arriving

We are happy to announce that we have purchased 4 PB of new data storage and 260 TB of new flash. This upgrade will add to the current ESS storage that has been recently added to provide a total of 9PB of storage. This will satiate the current demand of 8 PB project space and will provide the space needed after the retirement of our Flash, DDN10K and GSS systems (EOL in 2018).

The new data storage is composed by 1 rack of the newest IBM ESSGL6S system which is going to provide roughly 30% increase in performance in a drive to drive comparison.
The new flash storage is going to replace the old one granting more read/write bandwidth and storage space to the metadata tier.

We will keep you posted on the timeline and outages necessary to incorporate this new storage in Minerva.
