We just shipped (at 5pm tonight) the storage cluster. I didn’t announce any performance data for it. I can say that this unit has 24 RAID adapters. And QDR IB … 8 ports (going to 16 as soon as the extra cables arrive). It is using GlusterFS as the cluster file system.
This project has kept us very busy over the last month. We have more in queue that we are working on. On our next order of this size or larger, I think we are going to add staff to help out. We brought on part time help during the final portion, and it was useful. I think it would be useful before we get to this point.
