In this video from ISC’14, Steve Conway from IDC introduces the Exhibitor Innovation Forum and it’s first speaker, Gaurav Singh from Applied Micro.
In this video from ISC’14, Einar Rustad from Numascale describes the company’s innovative solution for combining multiple servers into an aggregated compute resource with extremely large memory capacity. As an HPC solution provider, Transtec delivers innovative technologies like this to customers seeking supported solutions.
“Calyos is a provider of advanced 2-phase cooling solutions for electronic applications. Two platform products have been developed, one is already commercialized for power modules cooling and another one has been prototyped for electronic components cooling aimed mainly at the High Performance Computing market.”
“The hybrid ActiveStor 16 system blends cost efficient disk-based storage with additional flash capacity and metadata performance, making the platform an optimal choice for PanFS 6.0 with RAID 6+ data protection. Depending on configuration, ActiveStor 16 ships with up to 122.4 TB of capacity per 4U enclosure, providing more than 1.2 PB per rack. In production, ActiveStor 16 will achieve up to 150 GB per second data throughput with capacity that scales beyond 12 PB in a single file system. Manageability is simple and initial systems can be deployed in less than 10 minutes.”
“As discussed in previous articles in this series, there are (at least) three ways in which Governments are forcing the pace of technological development. One is by international research cooperation – usually on projects that do not have an immediate commercial product as their end-goal. A second is by funding commercial companies to conduct technological research – and thus subsidising, at taxpayers’ expense, the creation or strengthening of technical expertise within commercial companies. The third is subsidy by the back door, through military and civil procurement contracts.”
In this video from ISC’14, Nicolas Dube from HP describes the innovative cooling in the HP Apollo 8000 system for HPC. “Tailor-made for the HPC market, the Apollo Series combines a modular design with innovative power distribution and air- and liquid-cooling techniques for extreme performance at rack scale, providing up to four times more performance per square foot than standard rack servers.”
