13 Nov 2017 Denver - Exascale computing company Nyriad has named HPC Systems as distribution partner for NSULATE, to enable GPU-based storage solutions in Japan. HPC Systems Inc. is a system integrator of High Performance Computing (HPC). The company has quickly established itself as a technology and performance expert and is now expanding its product offering to include GPU-accelerated storage solutions.
Nyriad's NSULATE software enables GPUs to function as storage controllers, replacing RAID controllers and enabling fast, extremely resilient, low power HPC storage solutions.
HPC Systems President Teppei Ono stated: "For years we have had to deal with the problems and limitations of RAID. Now we don't have to make a trade-off between performance, integrity, and cost. With NSULATE we can have all three, by swapping the RAID card for a GPU."
NSULATE enables a GPU to accelerate storage processing, providing functions traditionally performed by CPUs and RAID controllers at high speeds in GPU memory, performing cryptographic checksums and high-parity erasure coding, enabling instant recovery from hundreds of simultaneous device failures, which is key for exascale storage.
Nyriad Chief Executive and Co-Founder Matthew Simmons stated: "We are thrilled to have HPC Systems as our distribution partner in Japan. They are respected leaders in the field, so it was a logical choice for us."
