Tweet This: World's fastest Multi-Level Security for #Lustre by @DDN_Limitless: Extreme security w/up to 2x performance gains - http://bit.ly/2emvHyA
Combining community work in open source with unique DDN-developed features, the DDN MLS Lustre Solution delivers Lustre isolation suitable for a wide variety of security requirements.
"We have taken a flexible and adaptive approach to multi-level security that combines recent community advances with DDN-developed Lustre features to deliver full Lustre isolation, while minimizing the performance impact of the system overhead associated with implementing security," said Robert Triendl, senior vice president, global sales, marketing and field services, DDN. "This approach lets us customize configurations that meet our customers' security requirements without them having to sacrifice workflow efficiency."
Simpler to administer and more cost effective than maintaining a siloed infrastructure for sensitive data, the DDN MLS Lustre Solution combines the following community and DDN-only elements to deliver industry-leading performance:
- DDN EXAScaler® appliances bring centralized configuration and management, as well as industry-leading density, performance and scale with Intel® Enterprise Edition for Lustre*.
- SE Linux provides a strong security foundation.
- Containerization with Docker isolates user data.
- Kerberos, a network authentication protocol, handles user authentication.
- A complete solution that delivers up to 2x the performance of competitive offerings.
Built on DDN's EXAScaler ES14KX™ Lustre parallel file system appliance and Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre, DDN's MLS Lustre Solution is ideal for government, health and life sciences, research labs, financial and other data-intensive organizations handling sensitive data. It facilitates compliance with a wide range of security standards, while maintaining the performance levels required by high performance computing environments, which are crucial capabilities given the trends of increased security across government and research institutions, the growing breadth of research relying on personalized data, and the increasing use of parallel file systems by HPC, large commercial enterprises and Big Data environments.
In addition to the multi-level security features, ES14KX leverages all the benefits and features of Intel EE for Lustre software 2.7, such as in-band and out-of-band read cache hinting, project quotas back-end, metadata scaling improvements, single-client read improvement and a retrofit monitoring framework.
DDN's MLS Lustre Solution will be showcased at the upcoming SC16 conference in Salt Lake City, Utah, DDN booth #1931. To schedule a live demo or a meeting with DDN, click here.
