RAID No More: GPUs Power NSULATE for Extreme HPC Data Protection

In this video from GTC 2018, Alexander St . John from Nyriad demonstrates how the company’s NSULATE software running on Advanced HPC gear provides extreme data protection for HPC data. As we watch, he removes a dozen SSDs from a live filesystem — and it keeps on running!

GPU-accelerated Storage System goes “Beyond RAID”

Today Nyriad and Advanced HPC announce their partnership for a new NVIDIA GPU-accelerated storage system that achieves data protection levels well beyond any RAID solution. “Nyriad and Advanced HPC have brought together a hardware and software reference implementation around a GPU to mitigate rebuild times, enable large-scale RAID systems to run at full speed while degraded, reduce failures, and increase overall reliability, said Christopher M. Sullivan, Assistant Director for Biocomputing at Oregon State University’s Center for Genome Research and Biocomputing (CGRB). “We look forward to their continued technology support and innovative approach that keeps CGRB at the forefront of computational research groups.”

Nyriad to Accelerate Persistent Memory and GPUs for Storage

Today Netlist, Nyriad, and HPC Systems announced their joint collaboration to deliver superior throughput, IOPs and resilience for high performance Lustre storage solutions for large and small files targeted at large-scale cluster computing. “This collaboration is one of the exciting revolutions in high performance computing where larger scale solutions result in a leap in efficiency,” said Teppei Ono, President of HPC Systems. “With Nyriad’s NSULATE technology, we get higher performance and resilience the more drives we add to a node. At larger storage scales with higher throughput, we can dispense with RAID controllers and use NVDIMM’s from Netlist to achieve millions of IOPs for large and small file transactions.”

Radio Free HPC wraps up the SC17 Student Cluster Competition

In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team goes over the results of the SC17 Student Cluster Competition. This year, Nanyang Technological University from Singapore took the Top Prize. “In this competition, student teams design and build small clusters, with hardware and software vendor partners, learn designated scientific applications, apply optimization techniques for their chosen architectures, and compete in a non-stop, 48-hour challenge, at the SC conference.”
