This week Diablo Technologies announced that the company will resume shipments of its MCS based chipsets. The news comes on the heels of ruling by a federal jury in favor of Diablo in a lawsuit brought by Netlist, Inc.
“The DDN 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.”
Today Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT) announced plans to build the first x86 CPU-based servers with Nvidia’s NVLink high-speed GPU interconnect technology. “NVLink unlocks the full potential of GPU accelerators by enabling CPUs and GPUs to transfer data at unprecedented speeds,” said Sumit Gupta, general manager of the Accelerated Computing business at NVIDIA. “QCT extends the benefits of NVLink to the x86 ecosystem and gives our customers an easy path to higher levels of enterprise and HPC application performance.”
“I came to IBM via the acquisition of Platform Computing. There’s also been other IBM assets around HPC, namely GPFS. What’s been the evolution of those items as well and how they really come together under this concept of software-defined infrastructure, and how we’re now taking these capabilities and expanding them into other initiatives that have sort of bled into the HPC space.”
“As our 2014 results and momentum into the first quarter of 2015 demonstrate, DDN’s product strategy to offer integrated end-to-end solutions for large scale data problems is in high demand,” said Alex Bouzari, DDN CEO and co-founder. “DDN is leading the industry with innovation in application acceleration, high performance file systems and both private and public cloud enabling solutions.”
“Imagine an entire IT infrastructure controlled not by hands and hardware, but by software. One in which application workloads such as big data, analytics, simulation and design are serviced automatically by the most appropriate resource, whether running locally or in the cloud. A Software Defined Infrastructure enables your organization to deliver IT services in the most efficient way possible, optimizing resource utilization to accelerate time to results and reduce costs.”
