On Tuesday, Linux Networx introduced storage bundles as add-ons for its its LS series of supercomputing systems and its Advanced Technology Clusters. The Bluffdale, Utah-based company, which specializes in supercomputers built from clusters of Linux-based machines, said the packages of storage hardware, management software and file systems will improve performance by dint of being integrated into the set-up.

The storage packages are intended to be tailored for three classes of supercomputing: ultimate (such as the data crunching done in national laboratories), premium (juggling many applications), and value (simple management for basic supercomputing). These are available now, Linux Networx said.
