A month ago we released a whitepaper on using Isilon storage in an electronic design automation (EDA) workflow. I had intended to blog about this when it was released but I was 2 days away from leaving on vacation and it escaped me.
EDA workflows are often a conglomeration of home directory, HPC-analysis, and large streaming workloads so it can be challenging to optimize your storage to support it all. The whitepaper covers everything from node-type selection, network configuration, file layout recommendations, and more.
Many thanks to Steve for working with all the SMEs to put this together!
