Video: First Look at Intel Optane Non-volatile Memory

optane

“At IDF, Intel introduced Intel Optane technology, which is based on the revolutionary 3D XPoint non-volatile memory media and combined with the company’s advanced system memory controller, interface hardware and software IP, to unleash vast performance potential in a range of forthcoming products. Intel Optane technology will first come to market in a new line of high-endurance, high-performance Intel SSDs beginning in 2016. The new class of memory technology will also power a new line of Intel DIMMs designed for Intel’s next-generation data center platforms.”

Today Spectra Logic announced Spectra Verde DPE, a new Shingled Magnetic Recording (SMR)-based NAS disk platform designed to provide high-density bulk storage for reliable, high-capacity digital preservation, at costs as low as 9 cents per gigabyte raw.

Climate Researchers Collaborate with HPC

BSC-ES_FORECASt

“The complexity and scale of weather and climate simulation have led weather centers and research groups to turn to their own community, either through direct collaboration or open source software initiatives, to increase performance and usability of these hugely complex models.”

Video: High-Throughput Processing of Space Debris Data

space

“Space Debris are defunct objects in space, including old space vehicles (such as satellites or rocket stages) or fragments from collisions. Space debris can cause great damage to functional space ships and satellites. Thus detection of space debris and prediction of their orbital paths are essential for today’s operation of space missions. The talk shows the Python-based infrastructures BACARDI for gathering and storing space debris data from sensors and Skynet for high-throughput data processing and orbital collision detection.”
