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.

Come meet with us!
2021 HUF - VIRTUAL
COVID-19 has disrupted the 2021 HPSS User Forum (HUF) and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Karlsruhe, Germany is no longer hosting the event. The 2021 HUF will be hosted online for six days spread across three weeks in October 2021 with no admission cost. This will be a great opportunity to hear from HPSS users, collaboration developers, testers, support folks and leadership (from IBM and DOE Labs) - Learn More. Please contact us if you are not a customer but would like to attend.

HPSS @ SC21
The 2021 international conference for high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis will be in St. Louis, MO from November 15th through 18th, 2021 - Learn More. As we do each year, we are scheduling and meeting with customers via IBM Single Client Briefings. Please contact your local IBM client executive or contact us to schedule a HPSS Single Client Briefing to meet with the IBM business and technical leaders of HPSS.

HPSS @ STS 2022
The 4th Annual Storage Technology Showcase is in the planning stage, but HPSS expects to support the event in March of 2022. Check out their web site - Learn More. We expect an update in early fall 2021.
