St. Albans, United Kingdom (11th November 2016) - Boston announces its Lustre* SFF (small form factor) solution - the dataScaler-L as part of its exhibit at SC 2016.

Making its American debut is the Boston dataScaler-L  (Lustre* SFF), that addresses the problem of scalability and performance that faces small to medium sized clusters.  As the most widely used parallel file system in the HPC industry, Lustre*, until now, has been typically reserved for institutes with generous budgets and larger clusters.

Boston Limited's dataScaler-L appliance is the latest addition to Boston's Lustre* based parallel file system portfolio and provides a lower cost / capacity entry point for Lustre* storage systems. Traditional Lustre* solutions on the market are focused on addressing the high-end cluster users, while the Boston dataScaler-L is designed for small or mid-sized clusters with capacities as low as 18TB (and scaling to 720TB). This solution provides a high performance alternative to standard NFS and provides customers with the option to scale and grow as the cluster and user demands increase over time.

David Power, Head of HPC, Boston Limited says: "We have been working in this space for a number of years and noticed that there was a major gap in the market for lower end users who were looking for higher performance HPC solutions at a more attractive price-point. As an Intel® Lustre* Elite solution provider we hold the engineering expertise to provide a solution in response to this customer demand."

Intel® Enterprise Edition for Lustre* provides unmatched speed, and efficiency compared to other platforms and gives you the ability to independently Scale-Out or Scale-Up your storage in response to user demands.
