ELASTIC SUPERCOMPUTING ARCHITECTURE
 
KIRA™ is an entirely new design, created from the ground up to address these needs. Built to  be data-centric, it runs the fastest and most diverse workloads all at the same time.

KIRA™ hardware and software innovations tackle system bottlenecks in processing, data movement and I/O.

KIRA™ is designed to eliminate the distinction between clusters and supercomputers, providing a rich  software and system interconnect in different form factors.

 KIRA™ allows for multiple processor and accelerator architectures and a choice of system  interconnect technologies and topologies, including our new RONNIEE Express interconnect.
KIRA™ Versatile Supercomputer
LOWER LATENCY AT SCALE
BEST-IN-CLASS PERFORMANCE, ADVANCED SECURITY, AND TREMENDOUS VALUE
HIGH DENSITY PROCESSING ELEMENT BASED ON CUTTING EDGE CPU, MEMORY AND I/O
A) AMD 2x Epyc Processors (64 Cores 128 Threads total)

B) Eight (#8) Memory Channels per CPU (25% better bandwidth then x86 competitors)

C) Balanced low-latency high speed interconnect (with multiple protocol support)

D) Built-in storage sub system combined with global filesystem sharing for maximum data access performance and optimized for Data Intensive and ML operations

KIRA-CS™ HOLISTIC APPROACH
 
KIRA-CS™ uses holistic and integrated methods to develop the world’s most complete, versatile and robust HPC systems. Rather than assembling cluster-like components and commodity networks that can degrade or act unpredictably at high node counts, A3Cube uses a ground-up design approach that includes deeply optimized fabric and topology architecture in combination with “system-centric” file system and storage orchestrator in combination with an innovative “composable” resource sharing built-in that guarantees unique linearly scaling in both computation, IO performance and coprocessor implementation. Regardless of your application requirements, the KIRA-CS series scales across the performance spectrum of dimension and application types, from smaller footprint, lower-density configurations up to the most complex data Analytics challenges.

MAIN SYSTEM SOFTWARE
Optimized Software and File System Architecture to deliver the best data-access at scale in any situation and with any application.

  • FORTISSIMO FOUNDATION™ provides the best optimized Kernel for the system, including file system and drivers for IO
  • Rhapsody System Manager™ permits to combine different file systems at the same time with different configuration coexisting inside the same machine permitting to obtain incredible data access configuration flexibility.


  • Best data access at single node, best data access at scale with global distributed parallel file system and pervasive RDMA support.
  • Support for convergent, diverged, aggregated and disaggregated storage configuration in the system permit to run multiple different workloads in the machine achieving always the best performance.

PROCESSING
KIRA Rack configuration

  • Up to 128 AMD Epyc Processors (4096 Cores 8192 Threads total)

  • Up to 128 TByte Memory per Rack

  • Up to 364 Local Disks for local data access or parallel converged storage

  • Ultra low diameter interconnect for maximum performance, lowest latency and best bisection bandwidth possible at scale (<0.8 us 1000 nodes)

  • Support Multiple Protocols: RDMA (OFED), TCP/IP, Memory Semantic (*)

  • Optimized Linux and software suite, preconfigured and specifically tuned (FORTISSIMO FOUNDATION)

  • Multi-level graphical system orchestrator with built-in multistorage configuration and management, coprocessor management and allocation, system memory, interconnect and OS tuning
