“By presenting a single global namespace across any storage device, anywhere in the world, Nirvana allows data to be easily and securely shared among globally distributed teams. Nirvana also automatically moves data to various workflow resources, based on policies so data is always available at the right place, at the right time, and at the right cost ― while keeping an audit trail as data is ingested, transformed, accessed, and archived through its complete lifecycle.”
“SGI has been delivering scaleable shared memory systems for over 2 decades. The 7th generation SGI NUMAlink7 technology is being delivered in the SGI UV 300, launched at SC14. A single UV 300 chassis (5U) provides 4 Xeon E7 processors, up to 96 DIMMs, and 12 PCIe slots. Connecting 8 of these units together in a single rack, using NUMAlink7 interconnect, then creates a huge pool of resources, up to 480 cores, 24TB DRAM, which can be extended with additional PCIe devices for highest performance FLASH in the industry, as well as compute acceleration with Intel Xeon Phi and visualization capabilities – all in a single system!”
“By providing a fundamentally new and powerful technology, plus the tools to operate and program it, Micron is providing developers and customers an entirely new way to power their innovation,” said Paul Dlugosch from Micron. “The Automata Processor and SDK will provide a new alternative for implementing very high levels of hardware parallelism without the complexities associated with von Neumann-style architectures.”
GPUdb is a scalable, distributed database with SQL-style query capability, capable of storing Big Data. Developers using the GPUdb API add data, and query the data with operations like select, group by, and join. GPUdb includes many operations not available in other “cloud database” offerings. GPUdb applies a new (patented) concept in database design that puts emphasis on leveraging the growing trend of many-core devices. By building GPUdb from the ground up around this new concept we are able to provide a system that merges the query needs of the traditional relational database developer with the scalability demands of the modern cloud-centric enterprise.
