HyperCore-Direct: NVMe Optimized Hyperconvergence
Scale Computing’s award winning HC3 solution has long been a leader in the hyperconverged infrastructure space. Now targeting even higher performing workloads, Scale Computing is announcing HyperCore-Direct, the first hyperconverged solution to provide software defined block storage utilizing NVMe over fabrics at near bare-metal performance.
Scale Computing’s award winning HC3 solution has long been a leader in the hyperconverged infrastructure space. Now targeting even higher performing workloads, Scale Computing is announcing HyperCore-Direct, the first hyperconverged solution to provide software defined block storage utilizing NVMe over fabrics at near bare-metal performance. In this whitepaper, we will showcase the performance of a Scale HyperCore-Direct cluster which has been equipped with Intel P3700 NVMe drives, as well as a single-node HyperCore-Direct system with Intel Optane P4800X NVMe drives. Various workloads have been tested using off-the-shelf Linux and Windows virtual machine instances. The results show that HyperCore-Direct’s new NVMe optimized version of SCRIBE, the same software-defined- storage powering every HC3 cluster in production today, is able to offer the lowest latency per IO delivered to virtual machines.
HC3, SCRIBE and HyperCore Theory of Operations
This document is intended to describe the technology, concepts and operating theory behind the Scale Computing HC3 System (Hyper-converged Compute Cluster) and the HyperCore OS that powers it, including the SCRIBE (Scale Computing Reliable Independent Block Engine) storage layer.

Case Study: Infinio with all-flash arrays
The University of Georgia Center for Continuing Education and Hotel is a conference center has 200 hotel rooms and over 35,000 square feet of conference space. The results? “Response times were fast – as low as 170 microseconds - which is even faster than our all-flash array."

Case Study: SaaS provider
Remote Tech Group (RTG) is the most advanced Act! hosting provider in the U.S. The team at RTG recognizes that while Act! runs on the .NET platform, customers are accustomed to the performance afforded by newer technologies like JSON and REST.
Remote Tech Group (RTG) is the most advanced Act! hosting provider in the U.S.  The team at RTG recognizes that while Act! runs on the .NET platform, customers are accustomed to the performance afforded by newer technologies like JSON and REST.  With that in mind, they sought a solution to provide better performance.  Their evaluation of Infinio was a success, first with a RAM-only deployment, then even more so when they added SSDs. they found most of their I/O requests to be cacheable, which of offloaded work the aging storage, while delivering the enterprise-class response time their customers have come to expect.
