Today Mellanox announced that their FDR InfiniBand-powered RDMA Solution Enables 2X Faster Access to File Storage.
Procuring, managing and maintaining large HPC clusters is a complex and challenging process, especially for small and medium businesses. HyperWorks Unlimited addresses this issue head-on by providing limitless access to our software within a pre-configured, fully supported hardware appliance for cloud-based simulation.
With Cloud HPC, the time to get the hardware is now 15 minutes, the time to get rid of the hardware is 15 minutes, as opposed to a couple of weeks, or a couple of months, and three or four years of depreciation. So it is a tremendous advantage: being able to relinquish the hardware is actually equally as important as the acquisition time, because it allows you to experiment now.
A public database dubbed MERIL (Mapping of the European Research Infrastructure Landscape) has been launched with the aim of providing a comprehensive inventory of high quality research infrastructures in Europe across all scientific domains, and accessible through an interactive online portal.
Over at International Science Grid This Week, Andrew Purcell writes that recent ISC Cloud’13 conference centered around recurring themes of flexibility and adaptability for utility computing. In other words, why worry about whether or not to do cloud vs. and in-house cluster, when you can intelligently use both in conjunction? As part of this, Andrés […]
A new ROCKS Rolls distribution is one of several steps XSEDE will take to make it easier for researchers to use campus and national resources.
