BUILD SCALE-UP SERVERS WITH NUMASCALE NODE CONTROLLER

Big Data Computing

The exponential growth of data from an increasing amount of sources is now outpacing the memory and processing capacity of standard Scale-Out servers. Efficient analysis of such big data volumes can be much easier to perform by applying a larger system with a higher number of processors that all share the same memory. This applies to graph processing as well as deep learning type applications where time to solution is of vital importance for the value of the information in the data sets. Sufficiently large Scale-Up Servers where all processors share all the memory is inherently easier to program compared to a Scale-Out server where shared data must be handled explicitly through message passing and/or data duplication.

Cache coherent node-controllers

Numascale’s cache coherent node controllers enable system vendors to build Scale-Up servers with 8 processors and beyond (16S, 32S, 64S)etc. Numascale has developed node controllers both for the AMD Opteron with HyperTransport (HT1, HT2, HT3) interconnect and for Intel Xeon with Ultra-Path Interconnect UPI 1.0 technology which is in production for the current Xeon scalable processors. Numascale is currently designing next-generation node controller for Intel’s 2021 server platform.

High Performance

As an example, system vendors may build Exascale systems more efficiently with Numascale node controllers since the number of individual nodes in the system can be reduced by an order of magnitude. This will in turn reduce the required size and complexity of the external high-performance network with a corresponding improvement in processing efficiency, power consumption, maintainability and operating cost.

WHY CHOOSE US

Numascale has developed and productized several generations of Cache Coherent node controller ASICs, the latest using Intel’s Ultra Path Interconnect (UPI 1.0) technology. The Numascale node controller roadmap is in cadence with Intel’s UPI technology as used in server CPU from one generation to next. The Numascale node controller is implemented as a high-performance and cost-effective ASIC, enabling system vendors to build 8s, 16s and 32s single node scale-up servers. The major applications are SAP HANA®, Big Data Analytics, Graph Processing, Deep Learning and general purpose HPC applications.
