Over at insideHPC, the RichReport is featuring a slidecast with Axel Kloth from SSRLabs. The Silicon Valley Startup has developed an innovative Big Data coprocessor architecture optimized for bandwidth and power efficiency.
Scalable Systems Research Labs is a Silicon Valley startup focused on the development and sale of a family of coprocessors to solve the “Big Data” problem by accelerating execution of applications for customers who demand higher performance and where the power supply or cooling capacity is limited. These coprocessors work with a variety of standards-based application programming interfaces (APIs).
