Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology Selects Dell to Build Three-Petabyte Storage Infrastructure, Supporting High Performance and Capacity Needs of Institute’s Research

Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST) has selected Dell Compellent arrays to provide high-performance and large capacity storage for its growing, private cloud environment that supports its students and researchers. With initial available capacity of three petabytes, the new storage infrastructure is one of the world’s largest Dell Compellent implementations. The new Dell Compellent infrastructure will enable JAIST to access information quickly and efficiently protect large amounts of important research data.

The new storage arrays will bolster the storage capabilities of FRONTIER (FRONT Information EnviRonment), a campus IT platform constructed to support advanced teaching and research activities at JAIST, which specializes in graduate-level education and research. JAIST is strengthening their IT environment to help further advance its world-class research. As the core of this system, a private cloud environment is being implemented with the aim to improve convenience for users and help achieve low cost, high energy efficiency and streamlined management by centralizing hardware resources.

“With advancements to the Dell Fluid Data architecture and the enterprise capabilities of Dell Compellent storage arrays, an increasing number of customers are turning to Dell for large-scale storage deployments,” said Alan Atkinson, vice president and general manager of Dell Storage. “JAIST’s selection of Dell Compellent is the latest example of our ability to efficiently and cost effectively offer both performance and protection to power business-critical workloads.”

JAIST adopted Dell storage for FRONTIER to centralize the management of large research data sets created and accessed by individual researchers and teams. In order to deliver necessary data for the users’ research activities quickly and with high reliability, JAIST replaced two previous systems with Dell Compellent, providing a combination of both high performance and high capacity to manage a large volume of data in one solution.

When updating its centralized storage system, JAIST faced a number of challenges, including achieving fast data access and constructing efficient back-up for large data sets. Another key requirement for JAIST was to eliminate the issue of depleted IPv4 addresses and build an efficient storage infrastructure with IPv6 compatibility. Through Dell Compellent’s support of IPv6, JAIST can extend its infrastructure to the required scale provided by the new 128-bit addressing scheme.

Dell was chosen to help solve these challenges and greatly improve the performance of JAIST’s storage capabilities. With Dell Compellent’s automated data tiering technology, JAIST can benefit from both the performance and capacity from a single system, which previously had been managed separately. The Dell Compellent system also provides:

  • Automated data tiering allows for automated management and movement of data between a combination of SSD and SAS drives, and enables fast data access and high-capacity with fewer disks
  • Compatibility with IPv6 using Dell Compellent zNAS to build an efficient storage infrastructure
  • Advanced snapshot features, which provide efficient storage of only the changes made to stored data for fast local recovery
  • Advanced replication feature that only replicates changed data provides disaster recovery for petabytes of data
