SPRINGFIELD, Ohio -- Intivity Corporation announced at DICE Alliance 07 the successful deployment of its file-based transparent data migration solution in a high-performance computing (HPC) environment.

Intivity's solution showcased file-based data migration and distribution between the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and the DICE (Data Intensive Computing Environment) computing center. DICE provides a realistic, high-performance computing environment where computer, storage, and network vendors can test new products and solutions for high-end data management issues. Intivity software was installed in a UNIX environment to demonstrate local and remote transparent data migration using large geographically disparate datasets, improved access times to tape archives using tiered storage as a buffer cache, and use of filesystem federation to optimize locality of data reference.

The ultimate goal is to improve the time-to-solution of complex engineering and scientific problems. It is a discreet environment, where we learn and share in each project's successes.

"Deployment of our solution in the HPC environment at the DICE and NASA/Goddard facilities shows what high-performance file-based data mobility can bring to the HPC community," said Mark Roberts, president of Intivity. "Intivity's approach enables great flexibility in policy-driven data migration, replication, distribution and retrieval."

"DICE is a new approach to solutions for the High Performance Computing community," said Roger Panton, DICE Executive Director. "The ultimate goal is to improve the time-to-solution of complex engineering and scientific problems. It is a discreet environment, where we learn and share in each project's successes."Intivity Corp.
