Algo-Logic Systems Joins OpenPOWER Foundation

Algo-Logic Systems to collaborate with OpenPOWER Foundation to deliver innovative industry leading GDN® solutions for the Enterprise Datacenters

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Algo-Logic Systems, Inc., a recognized leader in providing Gateware Defined Networking (GDN)®, announced today they have joined the OpenPOWER Foundation.  This open development community leverages the IBM POWER architecture to serve the needs of the Enterprise datacenter customers.  By mapping algorithms into FPGA logic for heterogeneous POWER computing platforms, Algo-Logic's products and solutions drastically lower latency and energy usage while increasing throughput for financial trading networks, datacenter networks, and in-memory databases.

Algo-Logic Systems is glad to join IBM, Altera, and a growing roster of technology organizations working collaboratively to build advanced server, storage, and networking acceleration technology as well as industry leading open source software aimed at delivering more choice, control, and flexibility to developers of next-generation heterogeneous Cloud datacenters.  The group makes POWER hardware and software available to open development for the first time, along with making POWER intellectual property licensable to others, greatly expanding the ecosystem of innovators on the POWER platform. 

Algo-Logic intends to work with the OpenPOWER Application Software group to deliver industry leading GDN solutions such as the ultra-low-latency accelerated finance Order Book, TCP Endpoint, and low-latency Key Value Search (KVS) solutions for the Enterprise Power8 servers on platforms based on FPGAs from fellow OpenPOWER member Altera Corporation.

  1. The accelerated finance Order Book maintains the best bid/ask prices for traded instruments directly from a live market feed.  It enables financial institutions, market makers, and hedge funds to accelerate trading, implement risk checks, and perform real-time financial analytics with the absolute lowest latency.
  2. The TCP Endpoint enables logic in an FPGA card to reliably forward data over multiple 10 Gigabit Ethernet connections.  It enables a Power8 server to communicate with compute servers, storage devices, and web servers with deterministic latency of only 76 nanoseconds. 
  3. Algo-Logic's KVS solutions provide key/value storage over standard 10G, 40G, and 100G Ethernet with sub-microsecond latency.  The KVS is ideal for sharing data between servers, tracking stock market orders, and maintaining tables in telecom databases.

"Algo-Logic has a unique capability to put together complete application level solutions leveraging FPGA acceleration with ultra-low-latency links to the processor.  Innovating around the link between processor and accelerator architectures is at the core of the spirit of the OpenPOWER Foundation," says Brad McCredie, President of the OpenPOWER Foundation and IBM Fellow and Vice President.  "The POWER architecture invented CAPI to allow coherent, low-latency links between the processor and an FPGA, so we are eager to demonstrate with Algo-Logic how their GDN solutions can exploit this technology."

"We are pleased to become the newest member of the OpenPOWER Foundation.  This allows us to extend our industry leading GDN® accelerated solutions to a wider base of financial users, Cloud service providers, Internet Service Providers (ISPs), and Host Service Providers (HSPs)," said John Lockwood, CEO of Algo-Logic Systems, Inc.

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes how...

The 6th WebRTC Summit continues our tradition of delivering the latest and greatest presentations within the world of WebRTC. Topics include voice calling, video chat, P2P file sharing, and use cases that have already leveraged the power and convenience of WebRTC.
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their backend AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT - especially in the connected home and office. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Kocher, founder and managing director of Grey Heron, explained how Amazon is extending its reach to become a major force in IoT by building on its dominant cloud IoT platform, its Dash Button strat...
Let’s face it, embracing new storage technologies, capabilities and upgrading to new hardware often adds complexity and increases costs. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Seth Oxenhorn, Vice President of Business Development & Alliances at FalconStor, discussed how a truly heterogeneous software-defined storage approach can add value to legacy platforms and heterogeneous environments. The result reduces complexity, significantly lowers cost, and provides IT organizations with improved efficienc...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...
"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics.

"IoT is going to be a huge industry with a lot of value for end users, for industries, for consumers, for manufacturers. How can we use cloud to effectively manage IoT applications," stated Ian Khan, Innovation & Marketing Manager at Solgeniakhela, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Peter McCallum, Vice President of Datacenter Solutions at FalconStor, discussed using predictive analytics to mon...
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
