Samplify (#365) is a soſtware company accelerating memory, storage, and I/O bottlenecks in HPC, Big Data, Big Science, and cloud computing. Te company’s APAX acceleration technology is a universal encoder/decoder for all numerical data, and imaging types. Samplify’s APAX HDF provides a three- to eight-times reduction in HDF file size for climate data, multi- physics, CFD, visualisation, and analytics. Implemented as a plug-in to HDF, Samplify’s APAX requires no modification of solver codes to achieve the benefits of accelerating throughput to storage subsystems and expanding storage capacity. At ISC’13, visitors can attend a paper presentation by the University of Hamburg and DKRZ, benchmarking Samplify’s APAX technology on climate data. Te paper presentation is scheduled for Wednesday, 19 June at 9.40am in Hall 5. www.samplify.com


Scalable Informatics (#551) will be demonstrating JackRabbit, one of the fastest high-performance single storage and computing devices on the market. Te tight coupling between processing and I/O lets customers run applications directly on JackRabbit at significantly higher application acceleration, delivering greater streaming data bandwidth, higher IOPs and I/O throughput, and more effective server utilisation for improved productivity and lower operational


At ISC’13, Samsung (#200) is presenting its 20 nanometer class DRAM and latest solid state drives as well as DDR4 Dram for the new generation of high-performance server memory. With its partners, Flytech and AdTech, Samsung is showcasing its Green Memory Solutions for data centre servers, virtualisation, high-performance computing, and big data. With Christmann Informationstechnik + medien, Samsung is illustrating its Exynos application processor for HPC applications, which powers Christmann’s RECS | Box Compute Unit 3.0. Te Exynos 5 Dual, based on the ARM Cortex-A15 CPU, has


which speeds up big analytics applications. In addition, with the ability to create SMPs as the workloads change, a soſtware-defined data centre can be implemented, responding to users’ requirements. www.scalemp.com

ttgLabs (#504) is an optimisation solutions provider that addresses the problem of soſtware optimisation for GPUs. At ISC’13, it will showcase a new version of its flagship product, TTG Apptimizer v1.0.3, which has been recently installed on ‘Lomonosov’ system, the No.26 in the Top500 list (Nov’2012). Tis toolkit enables developers to optimise resource-demanding applications for GPU-based systems and to easily achieve an efficient usage of all processing units, dynamic load balancing, selection of the optimal computational cores, and detection of the required level of parallelism. New features advance optimisation strategies to support Nvidia Kepler architecture that results in an at least 20 per cent increase in applications’ performance. ttgLabs will also demonstrate how TTG Apptimizer v1.1 can be efficiently applied to video processing in real time. ttgLabs.com
