Tachyum Releases Native Storage Solutions for Prodigy Based Supercomputers and Data Centers

Tachyum released a white paper “Tachyum Storage Strategy and Direction for Prodigy Data Center Deployments” detailing a storage strategy to maximize system performance and efficiency for Prodigy® data center scalable deployments while minimizing cost and management overhead.

“Tachyum Storage Strategy and Direction for Prodigy Data Center Deployments”

Prodigy, the world’s first Universal Processor, delivers a revolutionary new architecture that unifies the functionality of CPU, GPGPU, and TPU into a single monolithic device, and dynamically reallocates server resources to maximize utilization without expensive and power-hungry accelerators. Tachyum has provided ideal server, cabinet, networking, and storage designs to help meet the high demands of cloud and HPC/AI workloads with Prodigy.

The white paper showcases Tachyum’s system-level storage expertise with a storage networking architecture that offers flexibility and scalability in capacity and performance across any data center. The white paper includes options with both HDD and SSD-based solutions to address a broad range of customer demands.

“Tachyum’s Prodigy Universal Processor provides a revolutionary high-performance processor architecture that delivers unprecedented performance and TCO savings, and using the recommended storage equipment and technologies will maximize cluster performance for both HPC/AI and cloud deployments,” said Dr. Radoslav Danilak, founder and CEO of Tachyum. “Tachyum’s world-class systems and solutions engineering teams have guaranteed optimal Prodigy performance and cost savings by developing server, cabinet, networking, and storage designs that are tailored to Prodigy, ensuring that Prodigy’s groundbreaking new CPU architecture will have the best possible system solutions for Prodigy clusters, including upcoming supercomputer deployments. In addition, by offering cutting-edge solutions for both HDDs and SSDs, Tachyum’s solutions are future-proofed from the market dynamics in the storage industry as SSDs and HDDs converge to price parity.”

The suggested storage subsystems for Prodigy adopt a storage cluster approach, using state-of-the-art storage technologies:

  • HDD modular clusters, each comprised of a 2U server and a 5U JBOD for a total of 7U, with 7 of the 7U clusters fitting into a 52U rack storing 11.8 PB of capacity using 20TB drives
  • SSD modular clusters, comprised of 1U or 2U storage servers with SATA or NVMe drives; 24 2U servers can fit into a 52U rack storing 17.97PB of capacity using 15.36TB SATA SSDs

Tachyum has included recommendations for data center footprints of 4000 and 6000 square feet that include storage racks capable of supporting any of the above technologies, and can be configured based on the organization’s requirements.

Prodigy compute nodes run Ceph natively on Prodigy, and leverage open-source Ceph’s scalability, fault tolerance, ability to natively support block, file, and object storage. In addition to Ceph, Prodigy supports a wide range of popular file systems running natively as a client including NFS, CIFS/Samba, S3, ZFS, GFS2, and PNFS to address a wide array of customer and market requirements.

Prodigy delivers unprecedented data center performance, power, and economics, reducing CAPEX and OPEX significantly. Because of its utility for both high-performance and line-of-business applications, Prodigy-powered data center servers can seamlessly and dynamically switch between workloads, eliminating the need for expensive dedicated AI hardware and dramatically increasing server utilization. Tachyum’s Prodigy delivers performance up to 4x that of the highest performing x86 processors (for cloud workloads) and up to 3x that of the highest performing GPU for HPC and 6x for AI applications.
