Today Nimbix and Mangstor announced a joint technology offering designed to accelerate high performance data analysis for seismic processing, bioinformatics, and other big data analytics use cases in the Nimbix Cloud.
Network upgrades are enabling more data-intensive science in Canada, reports WestGrid, one of four regional organizations working in partnership with Compute Canada. In the past year, the regional organization has transferred more than 5 PB of research data across Cybera and CANARIE’s advanced networks in the past year, representing a 22% increase in network traffic from 2013-14.
Today the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) Organization announced that it is teaming up with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to use cloud computing to explore ever-increasing amounts of astronomy data. To kick things off, they just issued a Call for Proposals for AstroCompute in the Cloud, a grant program to accelerate the development of innovative tools and techniques for processing, storing and analyzing the global astronomy community’s vast amounts of astronomic data.
“n this session, Seagate covers configuration guidelines and tuning of LNET Routing from InfiniBand to Ethernet using Lustre 2.1 through 2.6 server/clients as well demonstrating performance results by means of a synthetic benchmark called IOR. In addition, this presentation includes the topic of LNET Router failure and recovery during I/O as well as what environments can expect during these failure events.”
The ISC High Performance conference brings out the very best in international supercomputing, and this year will be no exception with a host of content focused on HPC in Asia. Singapore has been a hotbed of HPC activity of late, so we caught up with Marek Michalewicz, who was recently named Chief Executive Officer at A*STAR Computational Resource Centre.
“Large scale HPC IO is usually done either with a file per process or to a single shared file. Single shared file IO does not scale well in Lustre compared to file per process. This presentation from Cray’s Patrick Farrell will give details, examine the reasons for this, and explore existing and potential solutions. Group locks and a new feature, lock ahead, will be discussed in the context of strided IO.”
