11 Aug 2009 Replacing HDDs with SSDs to Improve HPC Systems I/O Performance [22082]
Also Will Reduce Energy Usage and Cooling Load

An argument is made for the use of SSD devices in benefiting HPC applications with large I/O components in a Sun BluePrints Online article by Lawrence McIntosh in Sun's Systems Engineering Solutions Group and Dr. Michael Burke in Sun's Strategic Applications Engineering. The two compare traditional hard disk drives (HDDs) and the newer solid state drive (SSD) technology in high-performance computing (HPC) applications. Application-based benchmarking and storage performance benchmark testing are used and demonstrate significant benefits in the use of SSD devices for HPC applications with large I/O components, the authors conclude.
