Your data drives your business — and your storage decisions. But if you’re pushing the performance limits of your storage, consider scaling out to parallel file systems with Cray and Seagate. Data-driven companies require applications to “just work” in less time and keep users productive. Yet delivering parallel file systems like Lustre® has traditionally been fraught with challenges.

That’s changing — with help from Cray and Seagate. Torbin Kling-Petersen, principal engineer with Seagate, and Jason Goodman, senior manager with Cray’s storage and data management team, will discuss:
