Lustre* Users Group in China Issues Call for Papers


The 2015 PRC Lustre* Users Group conference has issued its Call for Papers. The event takes place Oct. 20 in Beijing.

Lustre* at the Core of HPC and Big Data Convergence

HPC BIGDATA Convergence

Companies already using High-performance Computing (HPC) with a Lustre file system for simulations, such as those in the financial, oil and gas, and manufacturing sectors, want to convert some of their HPC cycles to Big Data analytics. This puts Lustre at the core of the convergence of Big Data and HPC.

Bill Mannel, VP & GM of HPC & Big Data Business Unit at HP

“As a result of a new alliance with Intel, HP is offering its HPC Solutions Framework based on HP Apollo servers, which are specialized for HPC and now optimized to support industry- specific software applications from leading independent software vendors. These solutions will dramatically simplify the deployment of HPC for customers in industries such as oil and gas, life sciences and financial services. The HP Apollo product line integrates Intel’s technology innovation from its HPC scalable system framework, which helps to extend the resilience, reliability, power efficiency and price/performance of the HP Apollo solutions.”

Agenda Posted for LAD’15 in Paris, Sept. 22-23

DDN Sets World Record STAC Performance


Today DDN announced record performance on the Securities Technology Analysis Center (STAC) benchmark. Using the company’s EXAScaler storage solution, DDN set new public records for multiple workload types and sizes, including large and small workloads as well as I/O and compute-intensive workloads.

Lustre* For the Enterprise


Lustre* is not just for the national labs any longer. It was born out of serving up data extremely fast to the world’s most powerful HPC clusters using parallel I/O to improve performance and scalability. Here are five reasons why Lustre is enterprise-ready.

“Cyfronet recently celebrated the launch of Poland’s fastest supercomputer. As the world’s largest deployment of the HP Apollo 8000 platform, the 1.68 Petaflop Prometheus system is powered by 41,472 Intel Haswell cores, 216 Terabytes of memory, and 10 Petabytes of storage.”

Pleiades Supercomputer Moves Up the Ranks with Haswell


NASA reports that it’s newly upgraded Pleiades supercomputer ranks number 11 on the July 2015 TOP500 list of the most powerful supercomputers. And while the LINPACK computing power of Pleiades jumped nearly 21 percent, its ranking at number 5 on the new HPCG benchmark list reflects its ability to tackle real world applications.

Coprocessor File System Support


To get maximum performance from the Intel Xeon Phi, applications may have to be re-thought to take advantage of the SIMD architecture.

DDN’s Alex Bouzari Presents: Enabling Scientific Discoveries and Exascale Initiatives


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.”
