Numascale Introduces NumaQ — Scalable In-Memory Analytics Appliance

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.”

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addr...
