Inspur Storage System achieves record performance on SPC Benchmark 1

An Inspur storage system achieved world record performance and top two ranking in a recent SPC Benchmark 1 performance test. The SPC Benchmark 1 results are a valuable reference for the selection of storage systems for businesses critical applications like OLTP systems, databases systems, and server applications. “To achieve these results, the AS5600G2 adopted iTurbo acceleration engine technology from Inspur and used the four core algorithms of intelligent data path acceleration — intelligent multi-core scheduling, intelligent hot and cold data stream separation, and iMASP random to sequential transformation technology.”

Fast Track your AI Workflows

In this special guest feature, our friends over at Inspur write that for new workloads that are highly compute intensive, accelerators are often required. Accelerators can speed up the computation and allow for AI and ML algorithms to be used in real time. Inspur is a leading supplier of solutions for HPC and AI/ML workloads.

The Role of Middleware in Optimizing Vector Processing

A new whitepaper from NEC X delves into the world of unstructured data and explores how vector processors and their optimization software can help solve the challenges of wrangling the ever-growing volumes of data generated globally. “In short, vector processing with SX-Aurora TSUBASA will play a key role in changing the way big data is handled while stripping away the barriers to achieving even higher performance in the future.”

The Role of Middleware in Optimizing Vector Processing

This whitepaper delves into the world of unstructured data and describes some of the technologies, especially vector processors and their optimization software, that play key roles in solving the problems that arise as result of the accelerating amount of data generated globally.

Inspur Re-Elected as Member of SPEC OSSC and Chair of SPEC Machine Learning

The Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC) has finalized the election of new Open System Steering Committee (OSSC) executive members, which include Inspur, Intel, AMD, IBM, Oracle and three other companies. “It is worth noting that Inspur, a re-elected OSSC member, was also re-elected as the chair of the SPEC Machine Learning (SPEC ML) working group. The development plan of ML test benchmark proposed by Inspur has been approved by members which aims to provide users with standard on evaluating machine learning computing performance.”

Full Roundup: SC19 Booth Tour Videos from insideHPC

Now that SC19 is behind us, it’s time to gather our booth tour videos in one place. Throughout the course of the show, insideHPC talked to dozens of HPC innovators showcasing the very latest in hardware, software, and cooling technologies.

Intel Optane comes to new Inspur Storage Products

Inspur recently launched all-flash storage systems with dual-port Intel Optane SSDs. “With the Optane SSD as the high-speed cache layer, AS5000G5-F combines innovative technologies such as intelligent data layering, on-board hardware acceleration and online compression/deduplication, which achieves up to 8 million IOPS and a latency of 0.1ms, representing one of the highest performing mid-range storage systems available in the industry.”

Inspur Showcases HPC & AI Solutions at SC19

In this video from SC19, Vangel Bojaxhi from Inspur describes the company’s innovative solutions for HPC & AI. At the show, the company featured a broad array of HPC & AI servers based on x86 and OpenPOWER as well as a new liquid cooling system. “Through engineering and innovation, Inspur delivers cutting-edge computing hardware design and extensive product offerings to address important technology arenas like open computing, cloud data center, AI and deep learning. Performance-optimized and purpose-built, our world-class solutions empower customers to tackle specific workloads and real-world challenges.”

Inspur steps up with Innovative Liquid Cooling Technology at SC19

Inspur is showcasing new HPC systems with Natural Circulation Evaporative Cooling technology this week at SC19. Inspur combines high-density computing servers with natural circulation evaporative cooling technology, which is more reliable, energy-saving, and easier to deploy than other liquid cooling solutions. “Inspur collaborated with the Institute of Electrical Engineering of Chinese Academy of Sciences (IEECAS), combining Inspur’s leading supercomputing servers with IEECAS’s natural circulation evaporative cooling technology to achieve an efficient, reliable and energy saving liquid cooling HPC system.”

Inspur Launches Open AI Computing Solution

Today Inspur announced a pair of AI-technology driven open computing systems designed to improve the flexibility in customer deployments. “The OAI specification—led by Baidu, Facebook, and Microsoft in the OCP (Open Compute Project) community—unifies the technical specifications of the accelerator module and simplifies the design complexity of the AI accelerator system, thereby shortening time to market for the hardware system.”
