World's first high-performance Linux DAFS cluster

Wednesday, 13 March, 2002

Fujitsu has announced its success in realising the world's first high-performance Linux cluster system using direct access file system (DAFS) high-speed file sharing protocol and InfiniBand inter-memory data transfer.

The new system achieves six times the data transfer efficiency during file read with only 1/17th the CPU utilisation rate in comparison with standard NFS (network file system) solutions. This will enable the creation of systems optimised for use in the fields of biotechnology, fluid analysis and structural analysis.

The system was demonstrated at the Intel Developers Forum (Feb 25 - 28) in San Francisco, California.
