CATALOG recently announced major advancements in developing both storage and computers based on synthetic DNA as the fundamental building block. Continuous innovations in high performance computing (HPC) architectures are required by the ever-increasing challenges that scientists, researchers, and data analysts are expected to overcome. Traditional architectures are evolving as best they can to address each of the above areas. At some point, however, investments in traditional architectures will reach diminishing returns for certain workloads and use cases, driven by some economic reality. One promising non-traditional approach being actively pursued to address these complex challenges is the use and application of synthetic DNA for both storage and computational applications.
Gen-Z: A Memory-Centric Interconnect Fabric
The Gen-Z Consortium, launched in October 2016, brought together multiple technology vendors to create a new open system interconnect standard to work with the growing number of new processors and memory options available on the market now, as well as in the future:
