How does a university go from islands of cluster computing chaos to an efficiently run central HPC resource? In this video from the 2014 HPCAC Stanford HPC & Exascale Conference, Gowtham from Michigan Technological University tells us his story.
Barry Bolding from Cray presented this talk at the 2014 HPCAC Stanford HPC & Exascale Conference. “Productive Exascale is not simply about achieving a set of technologies and performance metrics, it is about providing systems that fit into the production scientific workflow environments that will exist at the end of this decade.”
Today Mellanox announced the availability of its Ethernet Switch SDK API with full Layer 2 and Layer 3 functionality as an Open Source software platform.
DK Panda from Ohio State University presented this talk at 2014 HPC Advisory Council Stanford Conference. “This talk will focus on programming models and their designs for upcoming exascale systems with millions of processors and accelerators. Current status and future trends of MPI and PGAS (UPC and OpenSHMEM) programming models will be presented.”
Intel’s Mark Seager presented this talk at 2014 HPC Advisory Council Stanford Conference. “In this talk, we will review the many challenges of building practical Exascale systems by the end of the decade and Extreme scale systems in the 2020s. Some of these challenges, such as extreme levels of parallelism, have direct impact on applications, while others, such as new data paradigms, offer real breakthrough application and scientific opportunities.”
Today Mellanox Technologies announced the formation of Mellanox Capital, a global investment arm, to provide equity investments in leading technology start-ups and companies worldwide.
In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team looks at a controversial study of hard drive reliability by Backblaze. Henry Newman was so overwrought over their lack of technical rigor that he wrote up a rant in Enterprise Storage Forum. The question is: Can you really complain when you use consumer hard drive technology for enterprise applications?
In this RCE Podcast, Brock Palen and Jeff Squyres discuss the FraunhoferFS (FhGFS) parallel file system with Christian Mohrbacher and Sven Breuner. Its distributed metadata architecture has been designed to provide the scalability and flexibility that is required to run today’s most demanding HPC applications.
Mark Harris from Nvidia presents this talk from SC13. “The performance and efficiency of CUDA, combined with a thriving ecosystem of programming languages, libraries, tools, training, and services, have helped make GPU computing a leading HPC technology. Learn how powerful new features in CUDA 6 make GPU computing easier than ever, helping you accelerate more of your application with much less code.”
