In this slidecast, Convey CEO Bruce Toal describes the advantages of the company’s hybrid core architecture for graph computing. Convey recently announced that the company has joined the ranks of the world’s most powerful computer systems for data-intensive computing with its performance on the Graph 500 benchmark.
“Convey’s architecture is the ideal complement to data-intensive computing because Convey hybrid-core systems combine powerful, reconfigurable processing elements with a supercomputer-inspired memory subsystem. Dataintensive applications, which depend upon random access patterns to large memory spaces, experience severe memory performance limitations on cachebased servers. Convey’s highly parallel memory subsystem allows applicationspecific logic to have over 8,000 simultaneous memory transactions in flight, significantly increasing effective memory bandwidth over cache-based memory systems.
