The rise of clustered computers has created a proliferation of scientific, analytic and research data. Initially, the exclusive domain of government laboratories and universities, corporations are now abandoning SMP-style computational approaches and adopting cluster computers for applications such as seismic data processing, financial analysis, product development and simulation, pharmaceutical development and web content serving. This computing revolution has created a growing storage infrastructure challenge as traditional storage methods struggle to keep pace with the speed and parallel service requirements of scalable compute environments.
