‘Technology at the Speed of Thought’
SanDisk® at Supercomputing Conference 2013
November 17-22, 2013

Visit us in Booth #4319

We’re excited to take part in the 25th anniversary of the Supercomputing Conference (SC13), which has served as a crossroads for the high-performance computing (HPC) community, and to show how data can be accessed at all new speeds.

SanDisk® booth #4319 will offer demos showcasing the ULLtraDIMM™, a new form of solid state storage by connecting flash storage directly to the system’s memory bus using the DIMM form factor, achieving an astounding 5 microsecond write latency.

ULLtraDIMM is a result of our close partnership with Diablo Technologies, and closes the last performance gap in current storage infrastructures by placing flash as close as possible to the CPU and applications. Its other unique feature is that it can be scaled linearly for both capacity and performance. Typically, performance doesn’t linearly scale due to contention on the IO and PCIe buses (i.e. each drive fighting for attention). Because ULLtraDIMM connects via the memory bus, it doesn’t experience this same contention and sees a full increase of performance with each module that is added to the system.

We’re excited to showcase how the ULLtraDIMM and SanDisk enterprise solutions can enable HPC acceleration. Visit us in booth #4319 to learn more about technology at the speed of thought!

LSI AIS 2013
November 20-21, 2013

Our team will also be attending this year’s LSI Accelerating Innovation Summit (AIS).  At the event, that addressing the data deluge that is transforming the IT function in enterprises around the globe, we will be showcasing our enterprise data center solutions and how they are helping organizations increase data speeds while staying within power, space and budget constraints. You can learn more here.

Looking forward to see you there!
