I always love these breathless stories of great speed, and how VCs love them …

Though, when I look at the “great speed”, it is often on par with or less than Scalable Informatics sustained years before. From 2013 SC13 show, on the show floor, after blasting through a POC at unheard of speed, and setting long standing records in the STAC-M3 benchmarks … Article in question is in the … Read moreI always love these breathless stories of great speed, and how VCs love them …

Brings a smile to my face … #BioIT #HPC accelerator

Way way back in the early aughts (2000’s), we had built a set of designs for an accelerator system to speed up things like BLAST, HMMer, and other codes. We were told that no one would buy such things, as the software layer was good enough and people didn’t want black boxes. This was part … Read moreBrings a smile to my face … #BioIT #HPC accelerator

A nice shout out in ComputerWeekly.com about @scalableinfo #HPC #storage

See the article here. Surely though, widespread adoption is just a matter of time. With its PCIe connectivity, literally slotting in, NVMe offers the ability to push hyper-converged utility and scalability to wider sets of use cases than currently. There are some vendors that focus on their NVMe/hyper-converged products, such X-IO (Axellio), Scalable Informatics, and … Read moreA nice shout out in ComputerWeekly.com about @scalableinfo #HPC #storage

Architecture matters, and yes Virginia, there are no silver bullets for performance

Time and time again, the day job had been asked to discuss how the solutions are differentiated. Time and time again, we showed benchmarks on real workloads that show significant performance deltas. Not 2 or 3 sigma measurements. More often than not, 2x -> 10x better. Yet … yet … we were asked, again and … Read moreArchitecture matters, and yes Virginia, there are no silver bullets for performance

On closure

I work with many people, have regular email and phone contact with them, as well as occasional face to face meetings. We talk ideas back and forth, develop plans. I work on designs, coordinating everything that goes into those designs (usually built upon our kit). I work hard on my proposals, thinking many things through, … Read moreOn closure
