RSC Tornado with 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable
RSC Tornado solution based on blade servers RSC Tornado TDN711 with 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors and Intel Optane DC persistent memory 200 series provides the industry highest x86 architecture computing density of 967.45 TFLOPS per rack (+37% vs. previous generation), distributed node storage system RSC Storage on-Demand with volume of 2.45PB per rack (+36% vs. previous generation) with 3.67 TB/s IO bandwidth (2x vs. previous generation) and leading energy efficiency with 100% “hot water” liquid cooling of all electronic components, horizontal scalability from small systems with a few servers to huge clusters or server farms containing many thousands of server nodes. RSC Tornado solutions provide additional cost optimization benefits through support of open standards and new Intel server products.
RSC Tornado AFS storage with high-availability features
RSC introduced the new RSC Tornado AFS intelligent storage system with high-availability features for building up of high-capacity storage. This solution provides high reliability and data availability by combining RSC Tornado AFS nodes in functional pairs. In the case one of the servers of a pair goes down, the second server would be able to provide full functionality of its storage elements. This approach enables high-reliability storage of up to 2PB in 2U form-factor with 64x Intel SSD P5316 NVMe drives in EDSFF.L design (nicknamed “ruler”). Data storage volume per 1 rack with 42 nodes of RSC Tornado AFS is 41.3PB with access speed of 1 TB/s.
RSC Tornado AI
RSC Tornado AI solution is oriented for creation of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) systems. It is a 1U node based on RSC Tornado architecture with 100% liquid cooling. The solution is based on 2x x86 processors with PCIe 4.0 and up to 4x NVidia A100 accelerators. One rack with 42 RSC Tornado AI nodes provides compute performance up to 1.895 Petaflops and 104.83/209.66 POPS (INT8/INT4). RSC Tornado AI solution is optimized to work with distributed RSC Storage on-Demand system.
RSC Storage on-Demand with DAOS support
RSC Storage on-Demand solutions support NFS, Lustre and DAOS file systems for distributed data storage. New Intel's open source DAOS (Distributed Asynchronous Object Storage) storage system enables the highest performance of working with data of various types. This solution is optimal for AI (ML/DL) segment. It enables multi-layered storage systems based on Lustre file system within Disaggregated Composable Infrastructure and flexible management of NVMe drive pools as well as DAOS-based storage systems with external distributed NVMe drive pool. This approach to DAOS realization enables high-performance storage with flexible capacity ratios between Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory modules and NVMe drives connected to DAOS server. This effectively provides flexible “on-demand” configurations for specific user workloads. RSC's specialists used their experience in composable disaggregated solutions for DAOS management. It is now possible to use convenient RSC BasIS orchestration platform's user interface (UI) for DAOS-based systems.
