Brain Researchers Accelerate Science on Thecus* NAS

In their research at the University of California, Berkeley, Jack Gallant’s team processes a lot of data. By adding an Intel® Atom™ processor-powered Thecus* network-attached storage device to their lab, the researchers are getting more science done every day.

Jack Gallant wants to know exactly what’s going on in that pretty little head of yours. The professor of psychology and neuroscience at the University of California, Berkeley, is working with a cutting-edge blend of brain imaging and computer simulation to decode the pictures in people’s minds.

Using functional magnetic resonance imaging and computational models, Gallant and his team have succeeded in decoding and reconstructing people’s dynamic visual experiences. As yet, the technology can only reconstruct movie clips that research subjects have viewed. But, the research could lead to reproducing dreams and memories and even understanding what goes on in the minds of people who cannot communicate verbally, such as stroke victims, coma patients, and people with neurodegenerative diseases.

High speed solution
In early 2012, Gallant’s lab received a Thecus N5200XXX* network attached storage (NAS) device based on the Intel® Atom™ D525 processor. The Thecus unit that Gallant’s team uses contains five bays with 1.2 terabytes of storage capacity using modern solid-state drives.

Faster data, more science
Gao set up the Thecus unit himself in a couple of hours and moved all the team’s data onto it. The performance improvement: phenomenal.

The Intel Atom processor combined with 1 GB of DDR3 RAM delivered incredible transfer speeds. Whereas before, the team was experiencing latencies of up to 100 milliseconds per read/write access, the Thecus unit served up data within 150 microseconds. “The Thecus NAS is out-of-the-ballpark better than magnetic media,” Gao says. “It has greatly improved our random read/write access times.”
