Flash Solid state storage for HFT high frequency trading

Anybody have ideas how flash product such as Solid state storage could be applied to High performance computing? We are looking forward to work with HPC companies, is there a way to find out? Thanks.

I have been looking into how to accelerate disk system performance with tiering of SSD and various speeds of spinning disk. I see it as a staging area for metadata or for frequently used small files. What are you looking for?

We are looking forward to provide Solid state storage solution to all the HPC companies, do you think we are match?

 

==

Please specify a product and a use case. I’ll take a look.

 

==

Standard 2.5″/SSD and SATADOM, our SATADOM has been qualified by Intel and Supermicro motherboard, it mainly used to boot up purpose.
Our company web site, www.Innodisk.com

From what I know quantum chemistry apps like to have not only large memory but also large and relatively fast swap on the nodes. This could be a small specialized niche.
Example is a PC GAMESS (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PC_GAMESS) .
But in general I think you need to target SAN storage solutions.

There are three tiers above SSD performance also, for those who can handle the price tag.

Modest Performance Boost = OCZ RevoDrive

Even Higher Performance = Fusion ioDrive
http://www.fusionio.com/platforms/iodrive-octal/

Unbelievable Performance = RAMSan-720
http://www.ramsan.com

Each of these have their pros/cons. I believe the Fusion ioDrive cannot be booted with an OS, for example, but if you need fast, large storage, it bridges the price gap to the next jump up to the RAM San tier.

What do you think about Tiering? Say front ending a large 1PB spinning disk installation by 10 or 20 TB of SSD? Then managing hotspots into the SSD?

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at youtube.com/quantlabs
