Video: Accelerating Science & Impacting the Real World

In this video from DDN booth at SC18, Thomas Anthony from the University of Alabama presents: Computing – Accelerating Science & Impacting the Real World. “As the cornerstone service of ASA’s charter, we provide High Performance Computing services free of charge to faculty, staff, and enrolled students of public schools, colleges, and universities in Alabama. This allows universities to create a trained workforce with the skills needed for jobs in engineering, science, mathematics, aerospace, and medical research fields.”

The Infinite Memory Engine – Unlocking the Potential of NVMe

In this video from DDN booth at SC18, John Bent from DDN presents: IME – Unlocking the Potential of NVMe. “DDN’s Infinite Memory Engine (IME) is a scale-out, software-defined, flash storage platform that streamlines the data path for application I/O. IME interfaces directly to applications and secures I/O via a data path that eliminates file system bottlenecks. With IME, architects can realize true flash-cache economics with a storage architecture that separates capacity from performance.”

Video: Research Computing Storage at the Francis Crick Institute

In this video from DDN User Group at SC18, Steve Hindmarsh from the Crick Institute presents: Research Computing Storage at the Francis Crick Institute. “The Francis Crick Institute is dedicated to understanding the fundamental biology underlying health and disease. Our work is helping to understand why disease develops and to translate discoveries into new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, infections and neurodegenerative diseases.”

Video: Deploying Marvell’s ThunderX2 at Scale in HPC Market

In this video from DDN booth at SC18, Larry Wikelius from Marvell presents: Deploying Marvell’s ThunderX2 at Scale in HPC Market. “The ThunderX2 product family is the company’s second-generation 64-bit ARMv8-A server processor SoCs for datacenter, cloud and high-performance computing (HPC) applications. The family integrates fully out-of-order, high-performance custom cores supporting single- and dual-socket configurations. ThunderX2 is optimized to drive high computational performance delivering outstanding memory bandwidth and memory capacity.”

Video: Reimagining the Datacenter Memory and Storage Hierarchy

In this video from DDN booth at SC18, Andrey Kudryavtsev from Intel presents: Reimagining the Data Centre Memory and Storage Hierarchy. “Intel Optane DC persistent memory represents a new class of memory and storage technology architected specifically for data center usage. One that we believe fundamentally breaks through some of the constricting methods for using data that have governed computing for more than 50 years.”
