February 15, 2022 CHATSWORTH, Calif., Feb. 15, 2022 — DDN , a global leader in artificial intelligence (AI) and multi-cloud data management solutions, today announced the Department of Defense High Performance Computing Modernization Program (DoD HPCMP) will implement its EXAScaler ES400X appliances in conjunction with Penguin Computing’s TrueHPC supercomputing platform. The new systems will be integrated at the Navy DoD Supercomputing Resource Center (Navy DSRC) and Air Force Research Laboratory DoD Supercomputing Resource Center (AFRL DSRC), which rank among the top 100 global supercomputers. The new systems, using the latest generation storage, memory and processing technologies, will significantly enhance the DoD HPCMP’s capability to support Science and Technology (S&T), Test and Evaluation (T&E) and Acquisition Engineering communities. “Our DoD customers are dealing with extremely complex data models to conduct their advanced research,” said Jeff Jordan, vice president of Federal Sales at DDN. “DDN’s focus on real-world performance, faster implementation and efficient scaling will get key technology into the hands of users who are driving research, development and operational projects and increasing their productivity. It’s gratifying to see these systems used to help the DOD meet its mission in confronting massive challenges such as COVID-19 research, AI and ML, and virtual prototyping.” The Navy DSRC system uses 26 PB of DDN’s EXAScaler storage, including 4PB of NVMe-based flash storage and 22 PB of disk drive-based storage for long term data. The AFRL DSRC system, supported by over 20 PB of DDN’s EXAScaler storage, enables high-performance data analytics as well as adding to the HPCMP’s capability to support DoD artificial intelligence requirements. DDN has deployed multi-petabyte systems to support the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) in Aberdeen, Maryland and the US Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) in Vicksburg, Mississippi. These deployments support their programs by supplying solutions specifically designed to address complex workloads and diverse resource demands. Modern AI and analytics use cases require more storage performance and scalability to drive faster computation and make data management easier and secure. “We are pleased to partner with DDN to deliver solutions that will help the DoD in their pursuit of solutions to the most challenging science and technology questions,” said Sid Mair, president, Penguin Computing. “Together, Penguin Computing and DDN look to set the standard for efficient High-Performance Computing and AI infrastructure.” The AFRL DSRC and Navy DSRC systems are expected to enter production service early in calendar year 2022. Additionally, DDN will be exhibiting at the AFCEA WEST 2022 conference on Feb. 16-18, 2022 in San Diego, Calif. at booth #2806. Federal division representatives from DDN will showcase solutions helping customers accelerate digital transformation and achieve levels of scale, efficiency and reliability with better and faster decisions from their massive datasets.
