About BeeGFS

BeeGFS, developed at the Fraunhofer Center for High Performance Computing in Germany and delivered by ThinkParQ, is a parallel cluster file system with a strong focus on performance and flexibility, and is designed for very easy installation and management. BeeGFS is free of charge, and transparently spreads user data across multiple servers. By increasing the number of servers and disks in the system, users can simply scale performance and capacity of the file system to the level needed, from small clusters up to enterprise-grade systems with thousands of nodes.
