A3Cube Announces Exa-Converged Parallel Systems

Today Italy’s A3Cube announced the F-730 Family of EXA-Converged parallel systems built on Dell servers and achieving sub-microsecond latency through bare metal data access. “A3Cube’s EXA-Converged infrastructure represents the next step in the evolution of converged systems”, said Emilio Billi, A3Cube’s CTO, “while keeping and improving on the scalability and resilience of Hyper-Converged infrastructure. It is engineered to converge all system resources and provide parallel data access and inter node communication at the bare metal level, eliminating the need for, and the limits of, traditional Hyper-converged systems. The system can efficiently use all the fastest storage devices currently on the market or planned to come to market, and puts all existing solutions in the rear view mirror.”

This Week in HPC: Startup Unveils Storage-Centric Architecture and PayPal Meets Moonshot

In this episode of This Week in HPC, Michael Feldman and Addison Snell from Intersect360 Research discuss the new Fortissimo Foundation from A3Cube, a clustered, pervasive, global direct-remote I/O access system. For more details, check out our A3Cube Slidecast over at insideBIGDATA. After that, they look at Paypal’s use of TI Keystone DSP processors for systems intelligence. By analyzing their chaotic real-time server data, Paypal is getting real-time, organized, intelligent results with extreme energy efficiency using HP’s Moonshot servers.
