Composable Memory within CXL 2.0 Protocol Shown by Liqid, Samsung, Tanzanite

The Compute Express Link (CXL) Consortium is chasing the utopian tech dream, now being realized in an increasing number of high performance servers, of a high-speed, open-interface interconnect that enables the heterogenous Babel of CPUs and accelerators to talk to each other, to all get along. It’s a critically important capability for AI, machine learning […]

GigaIO Wins TACC Contract for Composable HPC – AI Infrastructure

San Diego, March 10, 2022 – GigaIO, maker of data center rack-scale architecture for artificial intelligence and HPC, today announced that production has begun on their composable disaggregated infrastructure testbed in the Lonestar6 system at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at The University of Texas at Austin. Lonestar6 is a 600-node system utilizing Dell […]

Composable HPC-AI at Scale: The Emergence of Optical I/O Chiplets

The allure of “technology resource disaggregation” – a.k.a., composable computing – doesn’t get old. It’s an ingenious yet common-sense strategy for addressing our increasingly heterogeneous HPC-AI world where no single system can cost-effectively satisfy the range of workloads needed to be kept in play, each workload having its own unique combination of system requirements that would otherwise produce, in a single system, “marooned” resources that sap budgets. Put another way, with a composable HPC infrastructure there are pools of compute, memory, and storage resources enabling the dynamic assembly of customized nodes on a per-workload basis, offering configuration of “Goldilocks” solutions.

@HPCpodcast: FTC Takes on Nvidia-Arm Deal; Composable HPC –Why, Why Not and How To

In this Arm-flavored episode of the @HPCpodcast, Shahin Khan of OrionX.net and Doug Black of insideHPC discuss the latest hurdles thrown in front of Nvidia’s attempted acquisition of Arm Ltd., this time from the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, along with comments on Amazon Web Services’ new Arm-based Graviton CPU, targeting compute-intensive workloads. We also open […]

SDSC, Core Scientific in HPC Composable Partnership to Extend ‘Expanse’ Supercomputer

The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at UC San Diego has announced a partnership with Core Scientific, an infrastructure and software solutions provider for artificial intelligence and blockchain, to offer HPC capabilities to industrial users. SDSC and Core will integrate the Core Scientific Plexus AI software stack with the Expanse petascale supercomputer, launched by SDSC late last year with […]
