In this video from the DDN User Group at SC14, Tommy Minyard from TACC presents: Site-wide Storage Use Case and Early User Experience with Infinite Memory Engine.
IME unleashes a new I/O provisioning paradigm. This breakthrough, software defined storage application introduces a whole new new tier of transparent, extendable, non-volatile memory (NVM), that provides game-changing latency reduction and greater bandwidth and IOPS performance for the next generation of performance hungry scientific, analytic and big data applications – all while offering significantly greater economic and operational efficiency than today’s traditional disk-based and all flash array storage approaches that are currently used to scale performance.
I have to apologize for the audio quality here, but Tommy gave a great talk and it’s worth the view. You are listening to the backup of my backup. I guess Molly taught me well about archival in her former job.
