In 2016, Hewlett Packard Enterprise revealed its first prototype of The Machine PC, utilizing the DRAM memory. Moreover, lately the company has presented the second pilot model. HPE показала второй прототип. The concept itself is called the Memory-Driven Computing, however, those are the developed ideas, involved into The Machine project.
The prototype supposes the presence of 160 TB memory, divided into 40 physical nodes, parsed together with the help of the high-end protocol. In addition, there are optical and optoelectronic connections. The whole system is operated by the optimized Linux based OS running on Cavium ThunderX2.
Taking into account the result obtained, HPE expects, that the architecture will be easily scalable up to 4.096 yottabytes! Thus, it will be able to handle incredible data arrays.
Unfortunately, it is anything but clear, when real Memory-Driven Computing devices will hit the market. However in 2018 or 2019 HPE is going to …
