Samsung at SuperComputing 2012: Paving the Way for Advanced Memory Solutions

Earlier this month, more than a hundred IT industry leaders attended Samsung’s second annual CIO Forum to discuss new solutions for optimizing the data center. A key topic of discussion was how advancements in memory technology have been able to make data centers run more efficiently, and Samsung Semiconductor will be continuing this conversation at SuperComputing (SC) 2012.

SuperComputing describes the ability to compute data-intensive software applications and is performed on the world’s fastest computers. Wired recently labeled supercomputing as the modern space race, as Europe, China, and Japan aggressively and competitively build supercomputing centers to facilitate advancements in scientific research, engineering and national security.  IDG has also written about this trend, discussing the importance of America’s participation from a global and national security standpoint. 

Because super computing chips are densely packed together and work tirelessly to provide faster computational performance, they heat up very quickly and potentially endanger stored information. Samsung has been hard at work to provide super computing solutions to effectively cool super computers and protect important data, such as government-sensitive information, all the while maintaining top performance. 

We have been focusing on solutions at the SSD level, as SSDs are a core component for super computing – enabling fast, reliable and efficient computational performance.   At SC 2012, we will be discussing how Samsung’s recent advancements SSDs and DRAM are helping to improve supercomputing performance, with an exciting presentation featuring my colleagues Jonathan Chizick and Ryan Smith.  Jonathan and Ryan will take a close look at the different types of Green Memory, while pinpointing their performance and power-saving advantages in cloud infrastructures, rack-designed systems and virtualized environments.

Check out the video below to learn more about how technology companies, like Hardcore Computer are benefiting from Samsung’s Green Memory solutions:


SC 2012 will be a highly informative event, especially through its unique collaboration of academia, analysts and key industry decision-makers.  We hope you’ll join us for Jonathan and Ryan’s presentation on Tuesday, November 13th at 3:30pm in Room 155-C at SC 2012.  You can register for the conference here.

Will you be attending SC12? If so, I’d love to know what you’re looking forward to learning this year. Please let me know in the comments section.
