Today Bright Computing announced that its OpenStack management software integrates with Ceph to provide OpenStack with highly available and self-healing storage backend for volumes and objects.

Video: Towards Inevitable Convergence of HPC and Big Data

Dr. Satoshi Matsuoka, University of Tokyo

Satoshi Matsuoka from the Tokyo Institute of Technology discusses Big Data at the NCSA Blue Waters Symposium. “The trend towards convergence is not only strategic however but rather inevitable as the Moore’s law ends such that sustained growth in data capabilities, not compute, will advance the capacity and thus the overall capacities towards accelerating research and ultimately the industry.”

Software defined storage (SDS) is a concept that can cut costs and improve efficiency in many organizations. The ebook, Software Defined Storage for Dummies, is a great introduction to how SDS can benefit organizations and reduce TCO.

Video: Accelerating OpenPOWER Using NVM Express SSDs and CAPI

openpower

“We present results for a platform consisting of an NVM Express SSD, a CAPI accelerator card and a software stack running on a Power8 system. We show how the threading of the Power8 CPU can be used to move data from the SSD to the CAPI card at very high speeds and implement accelerator functions inside the CAPI card that can process the data at these speeds.”

Video: Have Hard Disks Joined the Grateful Dead?

Have spinning disk drives joined the Grateful Dead? That is the contention here in this video, where industry analyst Mark Peters from ESG dons his tie-dyed shirt and declares that flash is the new storage of choice in the datacenter.

Interview: Intel Taking Lustre into New Markets

Brent Gorda, GM, Intel High Performance Data Division

“It’s been nearly three years since Intel acquired Whamcloud and its Lustre engineering team. With Intel’s recent announcement that Lustre will power the 2018 Aurora supercomputer at Argonne, we took the opportunity to catch up with Brent Gorda, general manager of Intel High Performance Data Division at Intel Corporation.”

“The Cray XC series DataWarp applications I/O accelerator technology delivers a balanced and cohesive system architecture from compute to storage. It allocates storage dynamically in either private (dedicated) or shared modes. Storage performance quality of service can be provided to individual applications, based on the user’s policies. While leveraging Cray’s proven domain expertise in storage, the DataWarp accelerator can be used as a global storage cache for parallel file systems (PFS) such as Lustre, General Parallel File System (GPFS) and PanFS.”

Why Storage Matters to Scientists

Tom Wilkie, Scientific Computing World

As the Large Hadron Collider restarts at Cern, data storage has become as important to scientists as compute power. But, as Tom Wilkie from Scientific Computing World reports, the innovative technologies being developed have much wider applications.
