“At ISC 2015, Numascale announced record-breaking results from a shared memory system running the McCalpin STREAM Benchmark, a synthetic benchmark program that measures sustainable memory bandwidth and the corresponding computation rate for simple vector kernels. Numascale’s cache coherent shared memory system, which was targeted for big data analytics, reached 10.06 TBytes/second for the Scale function.”
“Power savings, increased rack density and high performance are the three key advantages of using liquid cooling. CoolIT Systems offers options for data centers with or without facility water hook up. Any server in any rack can be liquid cooled with CoolIT’s hardware, and benefit from immediate and measurable CAPEX and OPEX savings.”
Today REX Computing announced that it has raised $1.25 million in seed funding led by FF Science, a vehicle of Founders Fund that invests in companies pushing the boundaries of difficult scientific and engineering challenges. The new capital will support continued development and deployment of REX’s new, hyper-efficient and general purpose processor aiming to deliver a 10 to 25x increase in energy efficiency compared to the current state-of-the-art.
