Fujitsu announced the launch of FEFS, a scalable file system
software package for building file systems for x86 HPC clusters in Japan.
FEFS is software for x86 HPC cluster systems that enables
high-speed parallel distributed processing of very large amounts of read/write
transactions from the compute nodes. The software achieves the world’s highest
throughput speed of 1 TB/s from the compute nodes to the file system. In
addition, it includes features for system scalability, high reliability for
zero operational downtime, and actual operational convenience. It delivers high
speeds and large-scale data processing performance increasingly demanded of
file systems in accordance with performance improvements and increases in the
scale of cluster systems. This in turn, contributes to improvements in overall
To meet the wide-ranging needs of customers, Fujitsu is
offering file system solutions that combine its PRIMERGY x86 servers with its
ETERNUS storage system and the new FEFS.
