STFC uses Quobyte for its 42PB Super-Data Cluster

The UK Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) implements Quobyte software storage for its massive scalability, high performance, and operational ease.


Data Center File System

Quobyte’s next-generation file system unifies file, block and object storage for enterprise and scientific applications. Backed by a decade of research, its parallel file system core serves low-latency and high-throughput workloads within a single system.

Linear Scalability

Starting with four servers, Quobyte can be extended drive by drive and server by server. As a shared-nothing architecture, its IOPS and throughput scales linearly with every added resource.

Quobyte​​ does what Ceph can't do: saturate the network and deliver write latency that matches what the network provides. All of that wrapped in API, CLI and GUI that can be automated. Scalable distributed storage that delivers filer performance.

We migrated to Kubernetes and Quobyte for scalability and performance reasons. The combo allowed us to significantly grow the volume of transactions while at the same time reducing transaction times. And the dashboard is one of the best things ever! Being able to easily understand exactly what’s going on in the storage cluster is worth its weight in gold.
