Data Vortex Test-bed systems proved, in hardware, the scalability of the DV network
Our scalable network allows any number of nodes to be plugged into the switch, and our systems deliver huge performance improvements. Our systems allow better performance for applications that need better data communication. For equal performance on a specific hard problem, our initial systems require less space and represent a 90% savings in power consumption. A Data Vortex system of equal size has a 32x to 100x performance improvement over a comparable system with the same number of x86 cores.
The purpose of the DV systems was to prove the large scale implementation capability of the Data Vortex topology. We succeeded at this task and the below data show our advantages compared to alternate networks and fabrics.
