Intel’s DAOS tops the IO500 speed challenge for HPC storage

Hellen Wadman

Intel’s Distributed Application Object Storage (DAOS) object storage system – now open-sourced, but developed to make use of its super-fast Optane storage – came out top this summer in the IO500, which measures high-performance computing (HPC) hardware, software and file system combinations against each other.

DAOS arrived in 2015, and is an object storage system designed around Intel’s 3D Xpoint Optane technology, which provides something approaching the high-speed access capabilities
