Workshop on applications of NVRAM storage to exascale I/O

The NEXTGenIO project partners have designed, built and delivered a prototype hardware platform based around new non-volatile memory (NVRAM) technology.

NEXTGenIO at ISC High Performance 2019

NEXTGenIO was well represented again at ISC19.

Various of the partner organisations presented the successful results of the project via talks, demos and poster presentations at booths and in scheduled events, as detailed below.

NEXTGenIO project takes delivery of prototype cluster

Edinburgh, 7th June 2019: Today, a consortium led by EPCC, the supercomputing centre at the University of Edinburgh, announces the installation of the prototype system developed by the NEXTGen

New NVRAM Load/Store Analysis

The NVRAM technology deployed in this project (3D XPoint) offers higher densities than DRAM with lower energy usage such that higher memory capacities are feasible compared with DRAM. On the other hand, the access times are still inferior to DRAM.

BSC booth demos at SC18

NEXTGenIO partners BSC will be running some booth demos at SC18 - come along to booth #2038 and find out about some of the latest developments arising from work done under NEXTGenIO.

New White Papers from NEXTGenIO

NEXTGenIO has just produced three new White Papers: one Systemware White Paper and two Architecture White Papers.
