As one of North America's leading renewable energy operators of wind, solar, and transmission assets, Pattern Energy is focused on developing, constructing, owning, and operating energy-producing projects that provide customers with clean, renewable electrical power. They wanted to create a high-performance computing system that could help facilitate the development of energy-producing projects. They chose Red Hat to overcome this challenge. The Solution was implemented by Red Hat Storage Software Appliance in Three Intel McKay Creek storage servers connected via 4X DDR InfiniBand to two HP C7000 BladeSystem chassis with 32 total compute nodes. The benefits of deploying Red Hat Storage were high reliability and availability, easy to deploy and manage, cost savings and ability to survive hardware failures.
