It’s me again–Dr. Lewey Anton. I’ve been commissioned by insideHPC to get the scoop on who’s jumping ship and moving on up in high performance computing. This week familiar faces like Peter Bojanic, Dr. Richard Juday, and Anton Korzh have new gigs.
This week Seagate and Supermicro announced a preconfigured SQL server reference architecture for data warehouse deployments, as part of Microsoft’s SQL Server 2014 Fast Track program.
ICHEC is using DDN’s Infinite Memory Engine (IME) to accelerate Read and Write speeds in order to test ICHEC’s codes used by Tullow Oil, Africa’s leading independent oil company. In this talk, Browne shows how IME accelerated current workflows and reduced run time, opening the door to significantly faster resource discovery.
“By working with ThinkParQ, we have been able to leverage one of the best and highest performance storage systems for scale-out deployment,” said Dr. Joseph Landman, CEO of Scalable Informatics. “When testing a write-dominated workload using fio, IOR, and io-bm,a single rack of FastPath Unison with BeeGFS running on spinning disks sustained in excess of 40GB/s for multi-terabyte sized writes,far outside of cache. This level of performance comes from the combination of FastPath Unison hardware design, the Scalable Informatics Operating System (SIOS), and the excellent BeeGFS filesystem.”
