BeeGFS is the high performance file system of the BeeGFS Computing Center. The BeeGFS distributed metadata architecture has been designed to provide the scalability and flexibility required to run today's most demanding HPC applications.
The storage system and metadata division avoids important bottlenecks. Likewise, the Striping system allows several servers to inherit these roles, increasing performance and IOPS. Large systems benefit greatly from these systems thanks to the multiple metadata servers.
BeeGFS does not require Kernell patches, the components are easily installable thanks to its management tools. It also allows adding more clients and servers in the HPC system whenever you want. Likewise, the performance is exceptional since it has native RDMA protocol. In case of not having infiniband the performance in 10G is outstanding.
