Sanger has become Cray – Seagate first Lustre customer ! The system has arrived and is undergoing acceptance testing.
We intend to complete test and introduce the system by the end of November 2017. This is a very aggressive timeline with a view that the older filesystem areas will be retired by March 2018.
Our secure lustre guide is now available in the presentations area.
Our 2017 financial year end has brought with it a number of procurements. Over the next few months we will be installing:
2PB of Cray/Seagate lustre, 2PB iRODS, 1PB Ceph, a new OpenStack zone, an updated SciaaS platform, iRODS performance server units, SQL servers and a full OpenStack test environment.
We are also preparing for our new DC quadrant, which is expected online 2018.
Should be fun, we will keep our internal customers updated through the IT project portal in the usual way.
