Over at TOP500.org, Bernd Mohr writes that Europe’s Human Brain Project will have a main production system located at the Juelich Supercomputing Centre. “The HBP supercomputer will be built in stages, with an intermediate “pre-exascale” system on the order of 50 petaflops planned for the 2016-18 timeframe. Full brain simulations are expected to require exascale capabilities, which, according to most potential suppliers’ roadmaps, are likely to be available in, approximately 2021-22.”
In this special guest feature from Scientific Computing World, Robert Roe writes that the era of data-centric HPC is upon us. He then investigates how data storage companies are rising to the challenge. In August 2014, a ‘Task Force on High Performance Computing’ reported to the US Department of Energy that data-centric computing will be […]
In this video from SC14, Ken Claffey from Seagate describes how the company is doubling down on high performance computing with its ClusterStor technology. Full Transcript: Ken Claffey: Hey Rich. Good to see you again. insideHPC: Oh, yeah. It’s always a pleasure. You Xyratex guys are like family. Ken Claffey: Another year rolls around, it’s […]
Intel in Boulder, CO is seeking an HPC IO Engineer in our Job of the Week.
“By developing technology which solves the 21st century challenges of massive data creation and complex information analytics — what many are calling the “Big Data Era,” and leveraging an extensive network of go-to-market partners which includes IBM, HP, Dell, and Sony, DDN has successfully deployed thousands of systems in enterprises, universities and government agencies worldwide.”
“IME unleashes a new I/O provisioning paradigm. This breakthrough, software defined storage application introduces a whole new new tier of transparent, extendable, non-volatile memory (NVM), that provides game-changing latency reduction and greater bandwidth and IOPS performance for the next generation of performance hungry scientific, analytic and big data applications – all while offering significantly greater economic and operational efficiency than today’s traditional disk-based and all flash array storage approaches that are currently used to scale performance.”
With the Avere FXT Edge Filer, uou basically get the same hardware operating EC2 cloud as you get from our physical appliances. Then you are on our software and what our software does is, it has the intelligence to automatically cache the active data up in the cloud. It pulls this data either from the Amazon S3 storage cloud or from your data center, from your NAS or object systems that are in your data center, and the goal there is to hide the latency to the storage.
