Nimbix Cloud Adds Docker Integration to JARVICE

“PushToCompute is the easiest and most advanced DevOps pipeline for high performance applications available today”, said Nimbix CTO Leo Reiter. “It seamlessly enables serverless computing of even the most complex workflows, greatly simplifying application deployment at scale, and eliminating the need for any platform orchestration or user interface work. Developers simply focus on their specific functionality, rather than on building cloud capabilities into their applications.”

Avere Systems Unveils New Cloud-Core NAS (C2N) for the Enterprise

“The Avere C2N System transforms traditional storage environments into cloud infrastructure that scales from 120 Terabytes to more than five Petabytes to provide an easy and economical path to the cloud. Unlike other object storage solutions that start at a petabyte or more, Avere offers an entry-point solution built for starting small and scaling to large capacities for demanding applications in media and entertainment, life sciences, financial services, technology and other high data-growth industries.”

Putting HPC into the Hands of Every Engineer and Scientist

In this special guest feature from Scientific Computing World, Wolfgang Gentzsch explains the role of HPC container technology in providing ubiquitous access to HPC. “The advent of lightweight pervasive, packageable, portable, scalable, interactive, easy to access and use HPC application containers based on Docker technology running seamlessly on workstations, servers, and clouds, is bringing us ever closer to the democratization of HPC.”

Video: HPC Disruptive Technologies Panel

In this video from the 2016 HPC User Forum in Austin, a select panel of HPC vendors describe their disruptive technologies for high performance computing. Vendors include: Altair, SUSE, ARM, AMD, Ryft, Red Hat, Cray, and Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “A disruptive innovation is an innovation that creates a new market and value network and eventually disrupts an existing market and value network, displacing established market leading firms, products and alliances.”

Huawei and ESI to Collaborate on HPC for Manufacturing

ESI Group has signed agreement with Huawei to collaborate on on High Performance Computing and cloud computing for industrial manufacturing solutions for customers in China and worldwide. “The ongoing digital transformation of industrial manufacturing demands enterprise-level IT solutions that are more intelligent, efficient, and convenient, especially in the HPC domain,” said Zheng Yelai, President, Huawei IT Product Line.

OnDemand 3.0 Portal to Power Owens Supercomputer at OSC

“We’re currently installing the most powerful supercomputer in the history of the center, but it’s just a roomful of hardware without fast and easy access for our clients,” said David Hudak, interim executive director of OSC. “OnDemand 3.0 provides them with seamless, flexible access to all our computer and storage services.”

Radio Free Looks at Exascale Application Challenges in the Wake of XSEDE 2.0 Funding

In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team discusses the recent news that Intel has sold its controlling stake in McAfee and that NSF has funded the next generation of XSEDE.

EU HPC Strategy and the European Cloud Initiative

Leonardo Flores from the European Commission presented this talk at the HPC User Forum. “The Cloud Initiative will make it easier for researchers, businesses and public services to fully exploit the benefits of Big Data by making it possible to move, share and re-use data seamlessly across global markets and borders, and among institutions and research disciplines. Making research data openly available can help boost Europe’s competitiveness, especially for start-ups, SMEs and companies who can use data as a basis for R&D and innovation, and can even spur new industries.”

Video: HPC in the Cloud

“Nimbis was founded in 2008 by HPC industry veterans Robert Graybill and Brian Schott to act as the first nationwide brokerage clearinghouse for a broad spectrum of integrated cloud-based HPC platforms and applications. Our fully integrated online Technical Computing Marketplace comprises several stores hosting modeling and simulation applications on HPC platforms in the cloud.”

Yottabyte Powers Data-Intensive Research at University of Michigan

“With the Yottabyte Research Cloud, researchers will be able to ask more questions, faster, of the ever-expanding and massive sets of data collected for their work,” said Yottabyte CEO Paul Hodges. “We are very pleased to be a part of the diverse and challenging research environment at U-M. This partnership is a great opportunity to develop and refine computing tools that will increase the productivity of U-M’s world class researchers.”
