The Shamu research cluster has approximately 64TB of shared storage utilizing a high speed 56GB/s Infiniband network. We use two Dell storage nodes, R730xd, with approximatly 32TB each in a RAID6 configuration. The two storage nodes are configured to use GlusterFS in a a parallel filesystem. The filesystem is then mounted via IBoIP on all compute nodes. In addition, we have a third Dell 730xd located in another data center which acts as our backup server for Shamu.
