COMPaaS DLV, COMposable Platform as a Service Instrument for Deep Learning & Visualization, was purchased from Liqid, Inc., with NSF funds. Its 4th-generation computer architecture, composable infrastructure, treats computer components - computer processing units (CPUs), graphical processing units (GPUs), networking, memory and storage - as pools of resources. It is:

  • Highly flexible. Each application defines the resources it needs, and the operating system composes, or combines, resources on the fly.

  • Scalable. As more infrastructure is added, it’s auto-integrated with the existing infrastructure and becomes part of the pool of capacity.

  • High-throughput. System components are interconnected with a high-speed internal fabric, enabling Big Data to quickly move among CPU, GPU, memory and storage at optimum speeds with little to no bottlenecks.

Funded in part by NSF award #CNS-1828265.
