Video: Infinite Memory Engine (IME) Burst Buffer Experience at CSCS


Hussein Harake from CSCS presented this talk at the HPC Advisory Council Spain Conference. “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.”

Seagate to Lead Sage Storage Project for Exascale Horizon 2020


“We are excited that the H2020 SAGE Project gives us the opportunity to research and move HPC storage into the Exascale age,” said Ken Claffey, vice president and general manager, Seagate HPC systems business. “Seagate will contribute its unique skills and device technology to address the convergence of Exascale and Big Data, with an excellent selection of participants each bringing their own capabilities together to build the future of storage on an unprecedented scale.”

Video: Intel Commitment to Lustre


“For High Performance Computing users who leverage open-source Lustre software, a good file system for big data is now getting even better. Building on its substantial contributions to the Lustre community, Intel is rolling out new features that will make the file system more scalable, easier to use, and more accessible to enterprise customers.”

Radio Free HPC Looks at the Grand Challenges of NSCI


In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team looks at the new round of Grand Challenges targeted by the National Strategic Computing Initiative (NSCI). The conversation was sparked by an Scientific Computing editorial by IBM’s Dave Turek.

ESnet Releases Code for Building Online Interactive Network Portals

This map highlights the sites ESnet serves, the structure of the network and the current traffic load.

ESnet has released open source code for building online Interactive Network Portals. “Now that the libraries are made available, the team hopes that other organizations will take the code, use it, add to it and work with ESnet to make the improvements available to the community.”

Video: DMF and Tiering Update


“DMF has been protecting data in some of the industries largest virtualized environments all over the world, enabling them to maintain uninterrupted online access to data for more than 20 years. Some customers have installations with over 100PB online data capacity, and billions of files, which they are able to manage at a fraction of the cost of conventional online architectures.”

SC15 Blog Puts the Spotlight on Invited Talks


SC15 has stepped up with a series of blog posts previewing the conference this year, an effort that seems much more engaging than the random press releases we’ve seen in the past.
