Parallel Storage Solutions from Nor-Tech
Any system that requires fast, seamless access to data, especially large amounts of data, can benefit from using a parallel file system. Great applications include machine learning and artificial intelligence—anytime high-performing access to large datasets is critical in ensuring system effectiveness. Parallel storage systems deliver the following benefits:
- Improvements to system performance.
- Fast data access, especially with large amounts of stored data
- High scalability
- Data can be used by multiple clients/users simultaneously
- Supports data redundancy
Storage integration can be highly complex—a challenge for most engineers, but not Nor-Tech. Nor-Tech also has the experience and expertise to help you choose the best storage option for your exact needs.
We have one of the most highly respected technology engineering teams in the world—capable of everything from minor tweaks that solve big problems to complex hardware and software integrations that other engineers won’t touch. Linux expertise is one of the many areas where we shine. While there are bigger HPC technology providers, there are not any that offer better support than Nor-Tech.
We don’t have the turnover that our bigger competitors have. The same engineers that build your technology are easily accessible during business hours to answer questions and explain complicated procedures in simple terms.
