The Machine Project : HP revives fundamental innovation

HP revives fundamental innovation, which breaks down barriers, which routed the spirits, which makes possible the impossible. Since Meg Whitman took the reins of the manufacturer, it keeps hammering that innovation is back at HP. The keynote of the second day of the HP Discover has given more substance to its statements. Already yesterday, HP had surprised everyone with its new generation of HPC servers, HP Apollo 8000, equipped with a system of highly innovative liquid cooling, which allows a very high density compute blades in the same rack. Today, Meg Whitman has left researchers at HP Labs unveiled a groundbreaking research project in the making for two years: The Machine.

The machine is a computer without RAM, without storage, with specialized processors (rather than multi-purpose CPU) and a photonic bus. HP wants to completely reinvent how to design computers and systems architecture. According to HP Labs, current architectures will soon adapt to the demands of Big Data. The explosion of the power required to manage the information flow the internet of objects is incompatible with our energy production and processing technologies and current storage.

The machine is mainly based on two revolutions:

- The first is the use of photons to carry information not only between different brick machine but also in internal bus connecting the processor to the memory.

 - The second is to overcome memory and storage (either disk or SSD) to adopt a universal non-volatile memory, and shared among all processors. Based on "Memristors" This memory combines the advantages of RAM and Flash. It is non-volatile, maintains information without use of energy, and may be whichever of the processors may not be the current DRAM.

The result is a design that consumes 1/80th of the energy of the most powerful supercomputers (the Fujitsu K) while providing six times more computing power; Obviously, to manage such a remote architecture of today's computers and this special universal memory, it will create a new operating system. A task to which HP has already started to address starting from a Linux kernel.

The machine is far from being a theoretical project. 75% of HP Labs researchers are now involved directly or indirectly in the project. And the roadmap, is both tight and ambitious. The choice of partner for the design of photonic processors bus will take place this year. Sampling Memristors begin in 2015 with mass production of DIMMs Memristors in 2016. Early brick Machine will be assembled in 2017 with the desire to see it run its first treatments in 2018. Early computers derivatives the machine could be in marketing before 2020.
