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: 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.”

Video: Managing Data from the Edge to HPC with iRODS

In this video from DDN booth at SC18, Terrell Russell from the iRODS Consortium presents: Managing Data from the Edge to HPC. “The Integrated Rule-Oriented Data System (iRODS) is open source data management software used by research organizations and government agencies worldwide. iRODS is released as a production-level distribution aimed at deployment in mission critical environments. It virtualizes data storage resources, so users can take control of their data, regardless of where and on what device the data is stored.”

Video: Overview of DDN’s Accelerated, Any-Scale AI

In this video from DDN booth at SC18, Kurt Kuckein from DataDirect Networks presents an overview of DDN A3i: (Accelerated, Any-Scale AI). “Engineered from the ground up for the AI-enabled data center, DDN A³I solutions are fully-optimized to accelerate AI applications and streamline DL workflows for greatest productivity. DDN A³I solutions make AI-powered innovation easy, with faster performance, effortless scale, and simplified operations—all backed by the data at scale experts.”

Video: A Glimpse into the Future of I/O

In this video from the DDN User Group at SC18, Sven Oehme from DDN presents: A Glimpse into the Future of I/O. “IME is DDN’s scale-out flash cache that is designed to accelerate applications beyond the capabilities of today’s file systems. IME manages I/O in an innovate way to avoid the bottlenecks and latencies of traditional I/O management and delivers the complete potential of flash all the way to connected applications. IME also features advanced data protection, flexible erasure coding and adaptive I/O routing, which together provide new levels of resilience and performance consistency.”
