‘The Machine’, the HP supercomputer based on photonics, shows its first prototype with 8TB of memory

HP showed two years ago that today is his most ambitious and important project: ‘The Machine’. A project with the division of the company in late 2015 became part of Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), who is responsible for servers and storage systems on a large scale, and which seek to change everything we know about computers and their electron-based architecture.

‘The Machine’ based use in memory through silicon photonics, which means that neglects the transmission of information via electrons and gives way to a reading within the same memory bank without Processors. HPE few days ago presented the first working prototype of ‘The Machine’ with a view to having the first commercial devices between 2018 and 2019. Continue Reading
