High Performance Storage System

HPSS Logo
Incremental Scalability
Based on storage needs and deployment schedules, HPSS scales incrementally by adding computer, network and storage resources. A single HPSS namespace can scale from petabytes of data to exabytes of data, from millions of files to billions of files, and from a few file-creates per second to thousands of file-creates per second.
About HPSS   :    Publicly disclosed HPSS deployments   :   Table   or    Map

These are the publicly disclosed HPSS deployments that have accumulated a petabyte or more of data. Each entry represents a single instance of HPSS; the capacity numbers for a single HPSS namespace.
