In this video from ISC 2015, Earl Joseph and Bob Sorensen from IDC provide an HPC Market Update. Additional topics include: the HPC Market in Europe, the upcoming HPC User Forum, and an HPDA Update: Where Big Data Meets HPC.
Daniel Ahlin from KTH (Sweden’s Royal Institute of Technology) presented this talk at the DDN User Group at ISC 2015. “The PDC Center for High Performance Computing at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology provides leading HPC services to Swedish academia as part of the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC) as well as internationally via the PRACE infrastructure.”
“By adopting 8 terabyte drive technology, ActiveStor 18 increases scalability to more than 20 petabytes and 200 gigabytes per second. According to Panasas, ActiveStor 18 also offers increased CPU power and twice the storage cache capacity to further accelerate mixed workload performance. ￼ActiveStor offers a true scale-out architecture incorporating hybrid storage hardware, file system and protocols in a fully integrated solution. Its architecture combines high-capacity hard drives and fast flash devices for superior mixed-workload performance with rapid access to small and large files alike.”
DDN CEO Alex Bouzari presented this talk at ISC 2015. “For over 15 years, DDN has relentlessly focused on delivering innovation to enable HPC globally. As the reigning HPC Storage Leader, DDN is once again the storage solution trusted by 2/3 of the Top500 supercomputing sites. Whether you need to accelerate your data-intensive applications and workflow or scale in performance and capacity for your requirements, DataDirect Networks (DDN) can help you unlock the value of your data by delivering systems with the highest performance, scalability, efficiency and simplicity.”
Today Bright Computing announced that the latest version of its Bright Cluster Manager software is now integrated with the Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre software. Systems administrators can easily deploy, use and maintain Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre using Bright. Because Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre metrics and diagnostics are included, admins have access to a comprehensive view of Lustre file systems, servers, and clients as managed resources through Bright’s GUI.
“At ISC 2015, Seagate announced that the company has extended its alliance agreement with computing leader HP to equip its high performance computing solutions with ClusterStor scale-out storage capabilities. Building on a proven partnership, HP will resell Seagate’s ClusterStor 1500 and 9000 appliances along with its HPC solutions. This partnership will support HP’s Apollo portfolio of products and services, which manage HPC workloads in complex computing environments.”
