Imperial Offers 1TB RAM Cache
Imperial's MegaRam 10000 supports a million input/outputs per second across 48 Fibre Channel ports.Administrators of ultra high-performance computing systems now have access to a 1TB RAM cache, from specialist Imperial Technology Inc. MegaRam 10000, for about $2 million, supports a million input/outputs per second across 48 Fibre Channel ports, said Robert David, CEO and president, in El Segundo, Calif. Imperials prior version only scaled to 51GB. "That allows for [1,280] separate logical units," David said. Market requirements, not engineering challenges, sparked the massive new devices rolling timing, he said.
MegaRam 10000 systems start at $350,000 for 100GB of memory. Systems are designed for vertical markets such as grid computing, life science and biomedical research, large-scale engineering, and time-sensitive geophysical applications, he said.
