Numascale, in collaboration with 1degreenorth, announces an innovative approach to big data analytics by providing in-memory capabilities via NumaQ systems. NumaQ, developed by 1degreenorth, employs Numascale's scalable shared memory technology to offer a new generation of high performance in-memory analytics capabilities that provide the power of a cluster coupled with the simplicity of a desktop.
NumaQ is a state-of-the-art x86 shared memory system from 1degreenorth that is specifically designed for big data in-memory analytics. The system uses high quality servers, connected with Numascale's NumaConnect scalable SMP fabric and a tuned Linux operating system. 1degreenorth's engineers have integrated the popular open source R statistical programming environment from Revolution Analytics with Numascale’s NumaManager to provide a desktop-like experience in a commodity cluster system, with hundreds of cores and terabytes of RAM that is easy to manage and use.
Designed and specifically engineered for in-memory big data analytics, NumaQ accelerates processing by providing a set of optimized appliances. The in-memory analytics appliance is supported by the R2 analytics programming environment and the MonetDB column-store analytics database. In addition, an in-memory Apache Spark Appliance is provided by the R2 analytics programming environment, just as with Hadoop clusters.
The NumaQ standard system configurations scale from 128 cores with 1TB memory to 4,096 cores with 32TB of global shared memory in a single system image environment. The systems are based on Dell’s industry-standard server platform, Red Hat® Enterprise Linux®, and Numascale’s NumaConnect.
1degreenorth’s customers like what they see from NumaQ. A telecom client appreciates being able to run its own database and analytics in-memory for near real-time Next-Best-Offer algorithms. Data scientists working with R like the fact that memory is virtually limitless.
Einar Rustad, CTO of Numascale, agrees. “NumaQ is a prime example of how applications can benefit from the affordable Numa architecture that NumaConnect provides,” he said. “Numascale will take an active part in the deployment of NumaQ systems, and is involved in sales and marketing of NumaQ outside of Asia. Numascale has successfully showed the advantage of NumaConnect in a number of new areas, such as simulation of liquid transport in porous media, flow simulation, and in-memory databases. NumaQ is excelling, and has been chosen as Numascale’s first appliance to be offered to a larger market.”
With offices in Europe, Asia, and USA, Numascale’s groundbreaking NumaConnect interconnect technology enables scalable server computer systems to be built at cluster prices. NumaConnect allows high-volume manufactured server boards to be used as building blocks for systems with features that are only found in the high-end enterprise servers. NumaConnect includes full support for virtualization of processing, memory, and I/O resources, and can be used with standard operating systems.
"Plutora provides release and testing environment capabilities to the enterprise," explained Dalibor Siroky, Director and Co-founder of Plutora, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @DevOpsSummit, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
