    What can BeeGFS do for you?

    Highlights

    Never lose data again

    BeeGFS Buddy Mirroring automatically replicates data, handles storage server failures transparently for running applications and provides automatic self-healing.

    Keep your system up and running

    Built-in data mirroring for high availability. If primary target is unreachable or fails, an automatic switch is performed for self-healing based on differential rebuild.

    Create instances with a single command

    With BeeOND, easily create a "On-Demand" shared parallel filesystem on a per-job basis. Integrates with any cluster batch system.

    Immediately scale anytime with new hardware

    By increasing the number of servers and disks in the system, you scale the performance and capacity of the file system, from small clusters to supercomputers with thousands of nodes.

    Help every user get fast efficent access

    BeeGFS allows you to create multiple storage pools which segment projects based on performance, providing the opportunity to keep current projects in flash storage, and move finished projects to HDD/SSD.

    Saves you money

    As a top system integrator & distributor of High Performance Computing & storage products, Exxact is able to provide some of the best pricing in the industry. Save time & save money.

    BeeGFS Management Node

    The BeeGFS Management Service serves as a rendevouz point for (new) servers and (new) clients while also watching registered services and state checking. Management servers are not critical for performance, and store no user data.

    TensorEX TS1-135587292-GFS

    This TensorEX 1U is a rack mountable BeeGFS Parallel Storage management or metadata node supporting 2x Intel Xeon Scalable family processor, a maximum of 1 TB DDR4 memory, and 2x PCI-E 3.0 x16 slots.

    BeeGFS Metadata Node

    The Metadata servers perform a vital function to store information about the data such as:

    • Directory information.
    • File and directory ownership.
    • Location of user data files on storage targets.

    It's recommended to operate metadata servers in failsafe mode. (primary: meta02, secondary: meta01).

    Storage Node

    These robust storage servers perform the bulk storage functions including storing user file contents (data chunk files). Storage servers can manage one or more storage targets In general, any directory on an existing local file system, typically a RAID volume, either internal or externally attached.

    TensorEX TTT-152622366-GFS

    This TensorEX 4U is a rack mountable BeeGFS Parallel Storage node supporting 2x Intel Xeon Scalable family processors and 24x 3.5" SAS3/SATA3 hot-swappable drive bays.

    Flash Storage Node

    Flash based BeeGFS storage targets can be combined into a "Fast Pool" and tied to a directory used for active/higher-performance I/O work. The goal of these flash drives is to provide optimum access speed for the projects on which the users are currently working.

    TensorEX TS2-201281-NVM

    This TensorEX 2U is a rack mountable server supporting 2x Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3/v4 processors, a maximum of 1.5 TB DDR4 memory, and up to 48x 2.5" NVMe drives.

    Networking

    BeeGFS clients accessing the data inside the file system communicate with the storage servers via network, via any TCP/IP based connection or via RDMA-capable networks like InfiniBand (IB), Omni-Path (OPA) and RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE). This is similar for the communication between the BeeGFS servers.
