Numascale Expands Performance and Features with NumaConnect-2

“At SC15, Numascale announced the availability of NumaConnect-2, a scalable cache coherent memory technology that connects servers in a single high performance shared memory image. The NumaConnect-2 advances the successful Numascale technology with a new parallel microarchitecture that results in a significantly higher interconnect bandwidth, outperforming its predecessor by a factor of up to 5x.”

1degreenorth to Prototype HPDA Infrastructure in Singapore

At SC15, 1degreenorth announced plans to build an on-demand High Performance Computing Big DataAnalytics (“HPC-BDA”) infrastructure the National Supercomputing Center (NSCC) Singapore. The prototype will be used for experimentation and proof-of-concept projects by the big data and data science community in Singapore.

Numascale Powers Big Data Analytics with Transtec

“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.”

Numascale Sets New World Record on STREAM Benchmark

Today 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.

Slidecast: Numascale Achieves Record STREAM Benchmark

In this slidecast, Einar Rustad from Numascale describes how the company achieved a world-record on the McCalpin STREAM benchmark using their innovative scale-out to scale-up architecture. The benchmark measures sustainable memory bandwidth and the corresponding computation rate for simple vector kernels.

AMD, Numascale, and Supermicro Deploy Large Shared Memory System

Numascale, in conjunction with AMD and Supermicro, has announced the successful installation of a large shared memory system at a datacentre in North America.

Numascale Teams with Supermicro & AMD for Large Shared Memory System

Last week at SC15, Numascale announced the successful installation of a large shared memory Numascale/Supermicro/AMD system at a customer datacenter facility in North America. The system is the first part of a large cloud computing facility for analytics and simulation of sensor data combined with historical data. “The Numascale system, installed over the last two weeks, consists of 108 Supermicro 1U servers connected in a 3D torus with NumaConnect, using three cabinets with 36 servers apiece in a 6x6x3 topology. Each server has 48 cores in three AMD Opteron 6386 CPUs and 192 GBytes memory, providing a single system image and 20.7 TBytes to all 5184 cores. The system was designed to meet user demand for “very large memory” hardware solutions running a standard single image Linux OS on commodity x86 based servers.”
