The Lustre File System, an open source, high-performance file system that eliminates the performance, availability, and scalability problems that are present in many traditional distributed file systems. Lustre is a highly modular next generation storage architecture that combines established,open standards, the Linux operating system, and innovative protocols into a reliable, network-neutral data storage and retrieval solution. Lustre provides high I/O throughput in clusters and shared-data environments and also provides independence from the location of data on the physical storage, protection from single points of failure, and fast recovery from cluster reconfiguration and server or network outages.
XENON is a certified Intel® Solutions for Lustre* software reseller and offers a comprehensive portfolio of storage products that unleash the performance and scalability of the Lustre parallel file system for HPC workloads, including technical ‘big data’ applications common within today’s enterprises. It allows end-users that need the benefits of large–scale, high bandwidth storage to tap the power and scalability of Lustre, with the simplified installation, configuration.
XENON also supports DDN turnkey EXAScaler® solution, a Parallel File Storage System Appliances with the open-source Lustre® File System to deliver scalable, clustered storage performance.

NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) is a scalable, high performance CPU PCI-E Gen3 direct connnect to NVMe devices, designed for Client and Enterprise server systems using SSDs technology, that was developed to reduce latency and provide faster CPU to data storage device performance.
By selecting a XENON NVMe solution, customers can benefit from reduced latency, increased Input/Output operations per second (IOPS), and lower power consumption. This means performance is ascertained in less time, translating into lower costs and increased revenues. The ROI benefits generated from a NVMe server solution is immediate and substantial.
- Large throughput gains (6x)
- Substantial latency improvements (7x)
- Shared common backplane improves flexibility of drive choice
- 2.5″ U.2 (SFF-8639) form factor for improved serviceability vs. PCI-E Flash cards (hot-swap)
- Improved power efficiency
The impact of ever increasing file storage growth, driven largely by rich media, email attachments and file backup, is prompting businesses to quickly move to a high performance, highly scalable storage solution. By enabling simplified management, better resource utilisation, centralized growth and data protection and by consolidating data within a dedicated XENON Network Attached Storage (NAS) solution, customers can easily address rapidly changing file-serving needs and reduce their total cost of ownership.
Benefits of XENON PlatiNAS solutions include:
- Complete Portfolio of open industry standard storage offerings optimized for Microsoft, VMWare, RedHat and Software Defined Storage solutions
- Maximum Performance: Full NVMe support, in hybrid expander and direct attach storage backplane with up to 20 GB/s throughput
- Maximum Efficiency: High capacity 1U, 2U, 3U and 4U form factors with industry leading density. Highest efficiency platinum rated power supplies (95% power efficient)
- Mission Critical Reliability: Fully redundant, fault-tolerant architecture with hot swappable drive bays, power supplies and cooling fans. The active-active capable JBOD hardware is perfect for mission critical applications
Ceph, a free-software storage platform, implements object storage on a single distributed computer cluster, and provides interfaces for object-, block- and file-level storage. Ceph aims primarily for completely distributed operation without a single point of failure, scalable to the exabyte level, and freely available. Ceph replicates data and makes it fault-tolerant, and as a result of its design, the system is both self-healing and self-managing, aiming to minimize administration time and other costs.
The power of Ceph can transform your organization’s IT infrastructure and your ability to manage vast amounts of data. If your organization runs applications with different storage interface needs, Ceph is for you! Ceph’s foundation is the Reliable Autonomic Distributed Object Store (RADOS), which provides your applications with object, block, and file system storage in a single unified storage cluster—making Ceph flexible, highly reliable and easy for you to manage.
Ceph’s RADOS provides you with extraordinary data storage scalability—thousands of client hosts or KVMs accessing petabytes to exabytes of data. Each one of your applications can use the object, block or file system interfaces to the same RADOS cluster simultaneously, which means your Ceph storage system serves as a flexible foundation for all of your data storage needs.
