MILPITAS, CA.August 14, 2018. — OmniTier, Inc., an application-specific, high performance solutions company, announced that in a joint study with researchers at the Mayo Clinic’s Center for Individualized Medicine, the company successfully demonstrated human DNA variant calling using de novo global assembly techniques with breakthrough performance and cost. Using the well-characterized NA12878 short-read sequenced genome dataset, the CompStor™ compute cluster completed variant-caller-ready assembly of a 50x coverage genome in less than two hours. The solution scales to 800x sequence coverage, a dataset size previously considered too large for de novo techniques but necessary to reliably identify new and infrequent variants. BUSINESS WIRE
LAS VEGAS, Ne., March 20, 2017. OmniTier personnel continue their extended road show with a joint demonstration with Intel at the IBM Interconnect trade show in Las Vegas (https://www.ibm.com/cloud-computing/us/en/interconnect/ ). Intel and OmniTier will present a novel use of Intel’s Optane™ technology paired with OmniTier’s MemStac™ product, achieving DRAM-standard throughput at latency for in-memory applications at a fraction of the cost.
FOLSOM, Ca., March 13, 2017. OmniTier is pleased to partner with Intel at this week’s Intel Analyst and Press Workshop in Folsom, CA, showcasing the rollout of Intel’s Optane™ storage-class memory technology. OmniTier CEO Hemant Thapar presented a keynote address on the use of in-memory caching solutions employing Optane™ technology, paired with OmniTier’s MemStac™ product to provide high-performance and cost-effective solutions for cloud-based computing. Senior VP Suneel Indupuru, Ameen Aslam, and Thiago Croce were on hand to present real time demonstrations of the joint technology.
SANTA CLARA, Ca., and ROCHESTER, Mn., January 13, 2017. OmniTier, Inc., is pleased to announce the General Availability milestone of its flagship product! MemStac™ is a key-value cache system based on inexpensive Flash memory technology, but whose performance meets and exceeds that of expensive DRAM solutions. MemStac™ is protocol compliant with standard Memcached, enabling it to work seamlessly with existing Memcached environments. It supports cluster configurations for scaleout based on node-to-node or proxy node connectivity.
SANTA CLARA, Calif., October 5, 2016. –(full text at BUSINESS WIRE)–OmniTier Inc., a cloud solutions company, announces its flagship software stack, MemStac™ . Designed for a tiered memory architecture utilizing NVMe SSDs and small amounts of DRAM, MemStac is capable of exceeding 7 million cache requests per second and supporting up to 4 terabytes cache capacity per server node at a fraction of the cost of today’s DRAM-only solutions. MemStac™ is fully Memcached compliant and can be integrated into existing cache clusters seamlessly, requiring no changes to the existing application libraries.
