St. Albans, United Kingdom (22nd January 2015). Boston Limited, now in its 23nd year of providing partners with first-to-market technologies and award-winning tailored solutions, will be exhibiting at the HPC and Big Data Summit 2015 at the QEII Conference Centre, London on the 3rd February 2015. Boston will be both exhibiting and presenting to delegates during two, 1 hour seminar sessions, discussing the benefits of a complete HPC and Big Data solution to the enterprise, scientific research and industry alike.

The focus of HPC and Big Data 2015 is based around exploring the high-level policy surrounding the development of the UK’s e-infrastructure, as well as to offer technical insight into the latest developments of HPC.

Presenting alongside Boston Limited, representatives from Mellanox will demonstrate their 100 Gbit interconnect ConnectX-4 Adapters, InfiniBand Switch Systems and LinkX innovations. Whilst Mellanox covers hardware, Bright Computing will present their range of software solutions including the Bright Cluster management System for HPC, their management solution for Apache Hadoop and the Bright Cluster Management Solution for OpenStack. The one hour talk Boston Limited shares with Mellanox and Bright Computing, demonstrates how Boston can deliver an end to end HPC and Big Data solution, as well as revealing the future for HPC going forward.

Boston has also partnered with Diablo Technologies for an additional one hour speaking slot. On show will be a solution from the Boston MCS server range, which utilises Diablo Memory Channel Storage. Diablo’s MCS enables unprecedented performance for virtualisation, VDI and the database. Diablo’s MCS is an ultra-low-latency NAND flash storage device, which connects directly to the DDR3 memory bus. Diablo’s Memory Channel Storage enables new levels of application performance; capable of delivering as low as 5 μsec write latency, random read/write performance of up to 150K/65K IOPS per DIMM, and data transfer rates up to 1GB/s/760MB/s sequential read/write – enabling I/O performance to scale while maintaining low latency.

During the same speaking slot, Micron will discuss their revolutionary Automata Processor (AP). The AP is purpose-built to address the processing challenges associated with graph analysis, pattern matching and data analytics. Micron’s hardware has a linear-scalable, two dimensional MISD fabric comprised of thousands to millions of interconnected symbol processing elements. Micron’s AP combines simultaneous delivery of input symbols with single-clock-cycle processing, which enables predictable, finite execution time and massive throughput.

We encourage all delegates to join us at our booth and at both of our seminars:
