We present TritonSort, a highly efficient, scalable sorting system.

When evaluated against the annual Indy GraySort sorting benchmark, TritonSort is 66% better in absolute performance and has over six times the per-node throughput of the previous record holder. When evaluated against the 100TB Indy JouleSort benchmark, TritonSort… CONTINUE READING
