Energy Laboratory Chooses Qumulo’s File Storage for Its Computational Science Center

Qumulo File System Selected for Its Ability to Manage Mixed
Workloads, Mixed IO and Scale in an HPC Environment

the pioneer of hybrid cloud file storage, today announced that the National
Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL)
has selected Qumulo’s file
storage solution for its Computational Science Center.

NREL is the U.S. Department of Energy’s primary national laboratory for
renewable energy, and energy efficiency research and development. The
organization focuses on research for renewable power technologies,
sustainable transportation, energy efficiency, and energy systems

The NREL Computational Science Center leads the lab’s efforts to solve
energy challenges using high-performance computing (HPC), computational
science, applied mathematics, scientific data management, visualization,
and informatics.

NREL required a high-capacity storage solution for its researchers and
engineers to store, access and manage their unstructured data. It has
deployed three clusters of Qumulo storage to date: a four-node cluster
on the Qumulo Capacity Series QC40, a four-node cluster on the Qumulo
Capacity Series QC208, and a four-node cluster on the HPE90.

The lab is using Qumulo storage for its researcher home directories on
the new Eagle System, the newest HPC system at NREL, as well as for
administrative and researcher NAS requirements, and replication of all
HPC NAS requirements.

“With the impact of climate change, it’s crucial for organizations such
as NREL to adopt technologies that accelerate their research and
outcomes. The lab’s HPC environment has a broad range of demands
encompassing multiple use cases, a large number of users, and long-term
data retention,” said Molly Presley, Director of Global Product
Marketing, Qumulo. “With Qumulo’s incredibly scalable architecture and
real-time file analytics, the NREL team can gain better insight into
their data, and in turn focus more effectively on their mission to drive
innovation in energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies.”
