NVMe – moving beyond the dark ages of storage

Embrace the non-volatile future

For maximum IOPS and minimum latency without a ridiculous power bill, it’s time for a better host controller interface to your flash storage! Thanks to the NVMe™ (Non-Volatile Memory express) specification, flash devices can now use the speed and bandwidth of a PCIe connection, without incurring the overhead of emulating a SAS interface. The I/O performance increase is up to 8x the speed of traditional SAS3 with 6x the power savings! The benefits to a desktop system are substantial, so imagine the impact at the enterprise level. NVMe storage pays incredible dividends when scaled up for deployments such as cloud hosting, relational databases, and online transaction processing.

About NVM Express

NVMeAs flash devices have become faster and more dense, they have also been held back by a legacy SAS interface. This interface was originally optimized for spinning disk which has much different characteristics than flash memory. Because of this, the SAS interface has always been a bottleneck for flash storage. NVM Express (NVMe) or Non-Volatile Memory Host Controller Interface Specification (NVMHCI) was specifically created as an optimal interface for the properties of flash storage. For example NVMe can handle 65,000 queues of data, each with 65,000 commands, compared to SAS that has a single queue with a capacity of 32 commands. In addition NVMe supports a streamlined set of only seven commands — far less than the SAS interface. Bottom line, this makes NVMe a far more efficient interface for flash storage, providing lower latency for the most demanding use cases.

Is the NVIDIA Titan X up to the Challenges of Deep Learning?

NVIDIA Titan X with Pascal

NVIDIA has recently introduced the new TITAN X™, the biggest and most advanced GPU ever built. Blaise Pascal said, “Imagination decides everything.” This certainly applies to the hardware engineering team at NVIDIA. Not content with the already “irresponsible amount of performance” of their GTX 1080, they imagined breaking the 10 teraflops barrier for computing on a single chip. The decidedly impressive result is the new NVIDIA TITAN X with Pascal™.

NVIDIA TITAN X with Pascal

NVIDIA Tesla ArchitectureWhen tackling deep learning challenges, nothing short of ultimate performance will get the job done.  The latest Titan X is the first GPU to consider. The Titan X with Pascal is built atop NVIDIA’s new upsized GP102 architecture. Highlights of the GP102 include:

• 30 Streaming Multiprocessors
• 11 TFLOPS FP32
• 3584 CUDA Cores at 1.53GHz
• 12 GB GDDR5x memory (480 GB/s)
• 12,000,000,000 Transistors
• NVLink High-Speed SLI Interconnect

The Velocity D58PSC – a Desktop Supercomputer

Velocity D58PSC with Titan X CutawayOne might expect that computational learning projects would require racks and racks of dense compute nodes with lightning fast interconnects. However, technologies like the new NVIDIA Titan X bring High Performance Computing (HPC) right to your desktop. Pogo provides many researchers with their own Personal Supercomputers, such as the Pogo Linux Velocity D58PSC Workstation.

We recently built one of these high end workstations for an uncompromising client researching machine learning. Pushing the boundaries in a deep learning project, this researcher is using TensorFlow, one of the products from the Google Brain Team within the Google Machine Intelligence organization. One aspect of TensorFlow is that it works best with GPU computing. However, even with GPUs, performance increases are sublinear. As a result, achieving top performance requires top-of-the-line GPUs. This is the ideal use case for the new Titan X.

Our client required no less than four Titan X cards installed in their new system. Fortunately, the Velocity D58PSC provided the ideal platform for this application.

With Dual Intel Xeon E5-2600 v4 series processors and up to 1TB of DDR4 memory, the D58PSC will extract maximum performance from these new GPUs. Topping off the configuration with up to 8x SAS or SATA SSDs will ensure there will be no I/O bottlenecks throughout the system. In cutting edge research, having the right equipment is key. By combining the raw CPU and I/O power of the D58PSC with Titan X GPUs, this researcher has a recipe for success.

To find out more about GPU Computing and what it can do for your projects, Contact the Pogo Sales Engineering team team to learn more about these extraordinary technologies.

Pogo fights for children’s literacy – you can help!

Help Page Ahead fight for children's literacy

As tech-savvy internet dwellers, we take the ability to read for granted. However, did you know that in Washington state, only 36% of children from low income families can read at a basic level, versus 68% of their middle and upper income counterparts?1 In addition, did you know that kids who don’t read at grade level by 3rd grade are 4x more likely to drop out of school?2 This represents a huge problem, considering that 45% — or almost half a million children — are on free or price-reduced meal plans in Washington State.3

Research has shown that two thirds of the reading achievement gap can be explained through learning loss that occurs during the summer months of the primary school years. The other third occurs before students even enter kindergarten. However, 61% of low-income families have no books in their homes for their children.4 Not only that, 80% of preschool and after-school programs serving low-income populations have no age-appropriate books for their children at all.5

Though this paints a dire picture for the future of America, there are organizations committed to combating these alarming statistics. Founded in Seattle back in 1990, Page Ahead is one such organization, making a huge impact in the state of Washington. They have created a vast array of programs to put books in the hands of the kids that need them most.

Page Ahead - A Taste For Reading Luncheon 2-16

Pogo Linux is proud to have been one of the sponsors of the annual Page Ahead benefit luncheon in Seattle. We are happy to report that the luncheon raised thousands of dollars for this worthy cause! This guarantees that thousands of children’s lives will be enriched by the gift of reading.

“Literacy can make the difference between the poverty of one generation and the promise of the next. Page Ahead helps children realize their potential by providing them with the inspiration to read.“ – Page Ahead

Despite the success of the luncheon, there is still so much more to be done! To lend your support to children’s literacy, you can make a tax-deductible donation to Page Ahead here. To learn more about how this organization is making a difference, please visit the Page Ahead website.

New things. Big things. Intel Solutions Summit 2016.

Another year of amazing innovations - The Intel Solutions Summit 2016

Pogo has just returned from Orlando, Florida where we attended the Intel Solutions Summit 2016. ISS is the annual event where Intel execs give presentations to their partners, sharing juicy details about their current and upcoming projects. Now that the fog of jetlag has begun to clear, let’s do a quick recap!

There are a bunch of new (and evolving) projects that Intel was excited to tell us about. Here are just a few of them, which are either available now or will be later this year.

The Intel® Xeon® E5 2600 v4 Processor Family

intel-xeon-e5-v4Last week, Intel unveiled their latest generation Xeon CPU. It represents a big step forward in processor architecture, sporting up to 22 cores and a shrunken 14 nm die. One nice benefit of the new v4 architecture is that it can be run on the same platform as the previous v3 processors. This means the v4 is instantly compatible with a huge percentage of our product line. Contact us to check on availability.

3D NAND Memory Architecture

With storage cells layered on top of each other, 3D NAND offers 3x higher capacity than competing technologies. Not only will this bring down the cost per gigabyte of flash based devices, but it will also increase capacity. In the next five years, we will start to see flash drives that are larger than current spinning disks by almost an order of magnitude!

NVMe Protocol

Intel NVMe SSDThe NVMe protocol (Non-Volatile Memory Express) protocol specifies how non-volatile storage media connects to the PCI Express bus. The new 3D NAND storage devices use this specification. This enables storage that is not only much more dense, but also significantly faster than SATA devices. Ask us how this can dramatically improve the performance of your next Pogo server or workstation!

3D XPoint™ (Intel Optane™)

As outlined in our prior blog post, 3D XPoint (branded as Intel Optane) is set to completely disrupt the memory industry with extremely dense, ultra-fast, non-volatile memory. In the memory hierarchy, 3D XPoint will sit just below DRAM in performance but will be much faster than current SSD flash technologies. Since XPoint is non-volatile, it will open up all new possibilities for caching data or augmenting DRAM for very large datasets. This exciting technology will be available later in 2016. Stay tuned.

Portable Computing Devices

The product showcase featured a huge selection of new devices leveraging Intel’s latest processors. With all the latest tablets, detachable 2 in 1s, convertible 2 in 1s, traditional laptops, and mini PCs, there was definitely something for everyone.

Mini PCs

Intel NUC Mini PCIntel is continually paving the way for new applications of PC technology. They showcased lots of remarkable ways to deploy their NUC (mini PC), and Compute Stick (HDMI pluggable PC in a tiny ‘stick’ form factor). Their live hands-on demos highlighted portable music production, streaming camera applications, real-time facial recognition, in-store signage, and large scale video display.

With all the amazing new Intel technologies coming out this year, we can’t wait to see what Intel has in store for us at next year’s event!

Introducing the Intel Xeon E5 2600 v4 Processor Family

A “tick” is not merely a check mark or a nuisance insect – it’s a major Intel® product launch!

In accordance with Moore’s Law, Intel’s Xeon® E5 2600 v4 processor family represents a “tick” in Intel’s “tick-tock” upgrade model. The overall microarchitecture remains the same, but shrinks. (In this case slimming down from 22 nm to 14 nm).

What this means to you is that our Intel Xeon based server collection just got a major boost. These new Xeon processors are available immediately* as a configurable option on nearly every Intel server we offer.

Key features of the Intel Xeon E5 2600 v4 Processor Family

Key benefits of the new processor family are a higher core count (up to 22 cores per CPU), the smaller 14 nm die, faster DDR4 2400 memory, and support for NVDIMMs. Initial benchmarking has indicated an average performance boost of 20% over comparable v3 processor versions.

New additional advanced features have also been added to the architecture. Intel Resource Director Technology (Intel RDT) offers better management of shared platform resources — for example L3 cache and system memory — across networking, storage, and compute using advanced orchestration and automation capabilities. Built for software-defined infrastructure, these new features of the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v4 family are foundational to deliver resource utilization, service tiering, and quality of service (QoS) levels that are both efficient and automated.

The Intel tick-tock model

Another notable benefit of the “tick” part of the cycle is that these new CPUs can be run on the same platform as the Xeon E5-2600 v3 product family, with little more than a BIOS update. Contact us if you’re interested in upgrading your existing Pogo servers.

Ubuntu with RAID 1 – Whatever It Takes

R&D Saves the Day

One of the reasons people trust Pogo Linux to help them solve their IT challenges is they know how much research and development goes into our products. Our engineering team leaves no stone unturned in the process of certifying our systems.

Our clients often need custom RAID configurations on their servers and workstations. Most of the time, the tools that are built into the Linux distro make it easy to configure the system as needed. However, exceptions can and do happen. Here is just one example of how diligence in the product development phase enabled our production team to quickly meet the needs of a customer.

The Usual Scenario

When setting up a workstation, it is often desirable to set up the storage drives in some RAID 1 - mirroredform of RAID for enhanced performance and/or redundancy. Still, workstations are not always configured with a hardware RAID card. This generally results in a software RAID being set up during the operating system (OS) installation. However, depending on the chosen distro, workarounds are sometimes necessary.

Recently, we received an order for multiple Ubuntu workstations, each specified to have two Solid State Drives (SSDs), configured as a RAID 1 (mirrored pair) with the operating system installed to it. Since there were no hardware RAID cards specified, they’d need to be set up with either software RAID (using an app called DMRAID within the operating system) or Fake RAID (in the system BIOS). Ubuntu Desktop 14.04 was the OS of choice for all six systems.Installing Ubuntu 14.04

Since the desktop version of Ubuntu is not equipped to create a software RAID, the server version of Ubuntu is initially installed. (The server version does include tools for building a software RAID.) After the server version is complete, the Desktop version of the OS is installed over the top of it. However, sometimes situations arise that require even more extensive workarounds.

The Edge Case

When this order came in, our engineering team recognized that because of the motherboards installed in these workstations, more extra steps would be necessary in order to set up a software RAID on these systems.

When following the initial procedure of installing Ubuntu Server, the system will boot to GRUB, start to load Ubuntu, and then hang. It hangs during the portion of the start-up where the OS mounts the drive partitions. This same configuration works just fine with CentOS and other distros. It is unique to Ubuntu, when it is coupled with the specific motherboard in this system.

The Solution

Installing mdadm

Here is an overview of the procedure to install Ubuntu Desktop 14.04 with a software RAID 1 on this Tempest workstation:

1.  Boot up to the system BIOS. Set up a RAID mirrored pair, configured to use the Intel Fake RAID chipset on the motherboard.

2.  Start the desktop OS install by booting into the live DVD version of Ubuntu Server 14.04 and choosing “Try Ubuntu.”

3.  Open a terminal and remove dmraid (RAID management software), which comes by default with the desktop version.

4.  While still at the command line, install MDADM which is a more robust software package for RAID management. Once installed, MDADM will recognize the Intel Fake RAID and see the two drives as one mirrored pair.

5.  Continue with the installation of Ubuntu to the mirrored pair. Near the end of the process, the installation will fail while Install failuretrying to install GRUB to the MBR.  This is expected, and nothing to be alarmed about.

boot repair6.  Reboot the installation DVD and choose “Try Ubuntu” again. Connect to the internet. Install Boot Repair and run it. Click the button to have the tool fix the boot loader and install GRUB.

7. Reboot into the OS and install the customer’s preferred desktop manager.

Just another day at the office

This serves as a great example of how a well researched internal engineering database enables us to predict and overcome any challenges that may arise while designing, building, and supporting the huge variety of solutions that we offer.
