GEARS An Infrastructure for Energy-Efficient Big Data Research on Heterogeneous and Dynamic Data

GEARS (an enerGy-Efficient big-datA Research System) is a heterogeneous computing and storage resource based on cohesively co-designed software and hardware components. It enables a variety of important studies on heterogeneous and dynamic data and advances the scientific knowledge in data-driven disciplines. The hardware of GEARS includes a cluster of data nodes equipped with heterogeneous processors and storage devices and fine-grained power management capability. The software is developed upon widely-used big data frameworks to support unified programming across CPUs, GPUs, and FPGAs, and transparent data access across a deep storage hierarchy integrating DRAM, NVM, SSD, and HDD.
