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 Kernelfor the system, including file system and drivers forIO
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.
