“Over the past six weeks, we took NVIDIA’s developer conference on a world tour. The GPU Technology Conference (GTC) was started in 2009 to foster a new approach to high performance computing using massively parallel processing GPUs. GTC has become the epicenter of GPU deep learning — the new computing model that sparked the big bang of modern AI. It’s no secret that AI is spreading like wildfire. The number of GPU deep learning developers has leapt 25 times in just two years.”

Conference attendance is free, however, those interested in attending should register quickly as Intel is expecting a big response, reflecting the broadening demand for HPC learning opportunities among technical developers. road on to learn about the incredible presenter lineup this year.
In this week’s Sponsored Post, Katie Garrison of One Stop Systems explains how Flash storage arrays are becoming more accessible as the economics of Flash becomes more attractive. “Comprised of a unique combination of a Haswell-based engine and 200TB Flash arrays, the FSA-SAN can be increased to a petabyte of storage with additional Flash arrays. Each 200TB array delivers 16 million IOPS, making it the ideal platform for high-speed data recording and processing with lightning fast data response time, high-availability and flexibility in the cloud.”
“Just as representative benchmarks like HPCG are set to replace Linpack, so a focus on software is taking over. From industry analysts to users at SC15 we heard that software is the number one challenge and the number one opportunity to have world-class impact.”
Today Qumulo announced that Sinclair Oil has chosen the company’s scale-out NAS storage for increased performance and real-time data visibility necessary to properly monitor the companys rapidly growing digital system.
Lustre* is not just for the national labs any longer. It was born out of serving up data extremely fast to the world’s most powerful HPC clusters using parallel I/O to improve performance and scalability. Here are five reasons why Lustre is enterprise-ready.
