In an effort to produce actionable intelligence fused from multiple sensors and digital media assets, The Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) purchased an SGI solution that integrates an SGI Altix 450 server, an InfiniteStorage SAN and a real-time CXFS environment into a very diverse heterogeneous compute and network environment -- all based on an open systems, high-speed InfiniBand LAN and WAN enabled architecture.
CXFS cuts time to solution by eliminating file duplication and the time it takes to move large files over networks.
Previously, large visual effects files created on Mac OS X, using highly popular software such as Final Cut Pro, Shake, Discreet combustion and Adobe Photoshop and After Effects had to be moved around a media facility, taking up to twice as much time as sharing the files using CXFS SAN.
The way out of this dilemma, according to SGI, is to create a hybrid NAS-SAN architecture that uses a clustered file system such as CXFS that allows SAN connectivity as well as actual NAS-style file sharing, but across a much larger storage array and across a broad number of different platforms.
Technical computing customers with multiple operating systems will greatly benefit from the new 2Gb SAN coupled with the recently announced SGI CXFS Version 2.

The integration of SGI productivity-enhancing tools, like DMF and CXFS, with Spectra Logic libraries addresses data management needs across our mutual target markets," said Bob Pette, vice president of Professional Services for SGI.
Together SGI's clustered file system, CXFS and YottaYotta's Global Block Services offer a new standard in data grid service.
A separate SGI(R) Altix(R) 350 system is deployed as a metadata server for CXFS, coordinating data access between heterogeneous CXFS clients.

Featuring the SGI NUMAflex shared-memory architecture, the Origin server was accessed via an SGI(R) InfiniteStorage SAN with SGI InfiniteStorage Shared Filesystem CXFS.
The SGI CXFS shared filesystem enables us to do that, facilitating access to data from IRIX, Windows, Linux, and Mac hosts as though it were on local storage.
