A Compact, Scalable, Efficient Data Collection Solution for Edge/IoT to Cloud​


The ever increasing use of high-output scientific instruments urgently demands a cost-effective, simple, scalable, and efficient data collection solution. This is especially true in the health care and life science (HCLS) industry. This talk presents a solution that combines the latest innovations from Intel, Zettar, AWS HCLS, and Supermicro to create a compact, highly scalable, HA, yet simple and cost-effective data collection solution.​ Also described: Intel innovations in Optane technology and DAOS, an open-source development by Intel. It leverages the unique capabilities of Intel PMEM and NVMe SSDs; Zettar's unified data mover has proven simplicity, scalability, and efficiency that has been spurred by its support of the ambitious data movement requirements of a premier DOE Exascale Computing preparation project, Linac Coherent Light Source II (LCLS-II); AWS HCLS - the most dominant in providing a highly productive cloud based environment for the various analysis pipelines for biomedical research; Supermicro’s flexible offerings of its flash-based storage servers.

Chin Fang, PhD, Founder & CEO, Zettar Inc.

Chin Fang is the founder & CEO of Zettar Inc. (Zettar). He holds a master’s and a doctoral engineering degree from Stanford University. Zettar’s mission is to create a simple, scale-out capable, versatile, and efficient unified data mover software for moving data at scale and speed. Targeted users include modern distributed enterprises engaged in data-intensive endeavors such as large-scale AI research and tier-1 science projects such as the Linac Coherent Light Source II (LCLS-II). In March 2019, Zettar was awarded the only Overall Winner of the Supercomputing Asia Data Mover Challenge, a grueling two-month long international competition at the highest level. Dr. Fang led the Zettar team, which beat out six other elite national teams from the U.S. and Japan by a wide margin. Since 2015, Zettar has been engaged to support the ambitious data movement requirements of LCLS-II, a premier U.S. DOE Exascale Computing preparation project. Zettar is supported by its revenue and has been awarded highly competitive grants by two U.S. federal agencies, the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy.
