SC09 Storage Challenge Award

A research team from the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at University of California, San Diego, and the University of California's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory won the Storage Challenge competition at SC09, the international conference on high-performance computing, networking, storage, and analysis, which was held last week in Portland, Oregon. The research team based its Storage Challenge submission for the annual conference on the architecture of SDSC's recently announced Dash high-performance compute system, a super-sized version of flash memory-based devices such as laptops, digital cameras and thumb drives that also employs vSMP Foundation software from ScaleMP, Inc. to provide virtual symmetric multiprocessing capabilities.
