In this special guest feature, Tom Wilkie from Scientific Computing World reports that the European Commission is funding research projects and centers of excellence as part of its strategy to coordinate European HPC efforts. In October, the EC made a series of announcements on how it is going to invest some of the €700 million allocated to its Public-Private Partnership on high performance computing.
Today SGI introduced the SGI UV 300RL for big data in-memory analytics. As a new model in the SGI UV server line certified and supported with Oracle Linux, the SGI UV 300RL provides up to 32 sockets and 24 terabytes of shared memory. The solution enables enterprises that have standardized on Intel-based servers to run Oracle Database In-Memory on a single system to help achieve real-time operations and accelerate data analytics at unprecedented scale.
Across industries, companies are beginning to watch the convergence of High-performance Computing (HPC) and Big Data. Many organizations in the Financial Services Industry (FSI) are running their financial simulations on business analytics systems, some on HPC clusters. But they have a growing problem: integrating analytics of non-structured data from sources like social media with their internal data. Learn how Lustre can help solves these challenges.
Researchers are calling for a coordinated national network of neurotechnology centers or “brain observatories.” As proposed in an Opinion paper published in the Neuron journal, the observatories would augment the BRAIN Initiative involving more than 100 laboratories in the United States has already made progress in establishing large-scale neuroscience goals and developing shared tools.
Training the neural networks used in deep learning is an ideal task for GPUs because GPUs can perform many calculations at once (parallel calculations), meaning the training will take much less time than it used to take. More GPUs means more computational power so if a system has multiple GPUs, it can compute data much faster than a system with CPUs only, or a system with a CPU and a single GPU. One Stop System’s High Density Compute Accelerator is the densest GPU expansion system to date.
