Sign Up Now: TechCommunity HPC WebTalk “The Storage Paradigm with Persistent Memory – the NextGenIO EU Project”

Whenever you hear about HPC, supercomputing, exascale etc. these days, most reports seem to focus on advancements made in the U.S., China, or occasionally Japan. Europe is hardly ever mentioned, even though 15 of the world's 50 fastest supercomputers (30%) reside somewhere between Devonshire and Rome. Even more important is the fact that the European Union has initiated and supported the funding of several ambitious research projects that are expected to jointly work towards creating a common platform for exascale high performance computing.

One of these projects is Next Generation I/O for the Exascale, or NextGenIO for short, which itself is part of the larger, EU-wide research and innovation programme Horizon 2020. Launched in October 2015, NextGenIO does exactly what its name implies: tackle the major challenges and attempt to overcome the roadblocks that HPC applications (and even more so those of the exascale type) will encounter with regard to I/O speeds, memory and storage. More specifically, researchers wanted to find out how "non-volatile memory technologies and associated systemware developments" could help improve the quality and timely dissemination of numerical weather forecasts to end users, which typically suffer from the fact that "too many processors are trying to communicate with slow disk storage at once." And they learned that persistent memory technologies could do a great deal to eliminate such bottlenecks. This, in turn, will have a tremendous impact on everyday enterprise computing.

Within the NextGenIO project, Fujitsu has served as a major contributor to the architecture and was responsible for server hardware and systemware in creating the upcoming technology, a prototype of which was presented at last month's ISC 2018 conference in Frankfurt. In this webcast, you will learn about the technical functionalities and how to benefit best from it for daily operations in HPC, Big Data applications, and more. Your hosts Alexander Bob, CATM Product Management Server, and Bernhard Homölle, Consultant Future Technologies, SVA GmbH, have the following agenda planned for you:

• What's the deal with persistent memory? Why is it a paradigm shift?
• The EU Project "Horizon 2020"
• Technical Deep Dive – how does NextGenIO technology work?
• Which use cases are the best applicable ones?
• Q&A
