DENVER, Nov. 14, 2017 — Exascale computing company Nyriad today named HPC Systems as distribution partner for NSULATE to enable GPU-based storage solutions in Japan.
HPC Systems Inc. is a leading system integrator of High Performance Computing (HPC). The company has quickly established itself as a technology and performance leader 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 said, “For years we have had to deal with the problems and limitations of RAID. Now we don’t have to make a tradeoff 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.”
Nyriad is a New Zealand-based exascale computing company specialising in advanced data storage solutions for big data and high performance computing. Born out of its consulting work on the Square Kilometre Array Project, the company was forced to rethink the relationship between storage, processing and bandwidth to achieve a breakthrough in system stability and performance capable of processing and storing over 160Tb/s of radio antennae data in real-time, within a power budget impossible with any modern IT solutions.
