One Stop Systems Showcases Composable Infrastructure for GPU Workloads at ISC 2018

In this video from ISC 2018, Jaan Mannik from One Stop Systems describes the company’s HPC systems and new composable infrastructure solutions. OneStop also showcased a wide array of its high-density NVIDIA GPU-based appliances, as well as showcase a live remote connection to one of its machine learning and HPC platforms. “OSS leads the market in external systems that increase a server’s performance in HPC applications, reducing cost and impact on data center infrastructure. These technology-hungry applications include AI (artificial intelligence), deep learning, seismic exploration, financial modeling, media and entertainment, security and defense.”

Video: Liqid Teams with Inspur at GTC for Composable Infrastructure

In this video from GTC 2018, Dolly Wu from Inspur and Marius Tudor from Liquid describe how the two companies are collaborating on Composable Infrastructure for AI and Deep Learning workloads. “AI and deep learning applications will determine the direction of next-generation infrastructure design, and we believe dynamically composing GPUs will be central to these emerging platforms,” said Dolly Wu, GM and VP Inspur Systems.

Rack Scale Composable Infrastructure for Mixed Workload Data Centers

A more flexible, application-centric, datacenter architecture is required to meet the needs of rapidly changing HPC applications and hardware. In this guest post, Katie Rivera of One Stop Systems explores how rack-scale composable infrastructure can be utilized for mixed workload data centers. 

Liqid and Inspur team up for Composable GPU-Centric Rack-Scale Solutions

Today Liqid and Inspur announced that the two companies will offer a joint solution designed specifically for advanced, GPU-intensive applications and workflows. “Our goal is to work with the industry’s most innovative companies to build an adaptive data center infrastructure for the advancement of AI, scientific discovery, and next-generation GPU-centric workloads,” said Sumit Puri, CEO of Liqid. “Liqid is honored to be partnering with data center leaders Inspur Systems and NVIDIA to deliver the most advanced composable GPU platform on the market with Liqid’s fabric technology.”

NVMe Over Fabrics High performance SSDs Networked for Composable Infrastructure

Rob Davis from Mellanox gave this talk at the 2018 OCP Summit. “There is a new very high performance open source SSD interfaced called NVMe over Fabrics now available to expand the capabilities of networked storage solutions. It is an extension of the local NVMe SSD interface developed a few years ago driven by the need for a faster interface for SSDs. Similar to the way native disk drive SCSI protocol was networked with Fibre Channel 20 years ago, this technology enables NVMe SSDs to be networked and shared with their native protocol. By utilizes ultra-low latency RDMA technology to achieve data sharing across a network without sacrificing the local performance characteristics of NVMe SSDs, true composable infrastructure is now possible.”

Liqid steps up with Composable Infrastructure for HPC at SC17

In this video, Jay Breakstone and Sumit Puri from Liqid describe the company’s innovative composable infrastructure technology for HPC. “Liqid Grid enables once-static infrastructure to scale on demand to effectively manage the explosion of data associated with cloud, enterprise, HPC and AI, as well as other emerging, high-value, data-intensive applications.”

Composable Infrastructure: Composing Greater HPC Breakthroughs

Composable infrastructure allows any number of CPU nodes to dynamically map the optimum number of GPU and NVMe storage resources to each node required to complete a specific task.  In this sponsored post, Katie Rivera of One Stop Systems, explores the power of GPUs and the potential benefits of composable infrastructure for HPC. 

Mellanox Enables Composable Infrastructure on HPE Synergy Platform

“We are pleased to partner with Mellanox to now offer even higher performance networking as an integrated component of the HPE Synergy platform. The unmatched Ethernet switch fabric performance and latency will enable our financial, business analytics, telco, and scientific customers to improve efficiency and achieve business results faster than ever before.”

Liqid Showcases Composable Infrastructure for GPUs at GTC 2017

“The Liqid Composable Infrastructure (CI) Platform is the first solution to support GPUs as a dynamic, assignable, bare-metal resource. With the addition of graphics processing, the Liqid CI Platform delivers the industry’s most fully realized approach to composable infrastructure architecture. With this technology, disaggregated pools of compute, networking, data storage and graphics processing elements can be deployed on demand as bare-metal resources and instantly repurposed when infrastructure needs change.”
