The PACE Scratch storage just got faster!

This entry was posted by on Friday, 20 July, 2018 at
We have made some improvements to the scratch file system, namely by adding SSD drives to be used for faster metadata management and data storage. We are pleased to report that this strategic allocation of relatively small number of SSDs yielded impressive performance improvements, more than doubling the write and read speeds (according to our standard benchmarks).
This work, performed under the guidance of the vendor, didn’t require any downtime and no jobs were impacted.
We hope you’ll enjoy the increased performance for a faster, better research!
