“Back in July 2012, Whamcloud was awarded the Storage and I/O Research & Development subcontract for the Department of Energy’s FastForward program. Shortly afterward, the company was acquired by Intel. Nearly completed now, the two-year contract scope includes key R&D necessary for a new object storage paradigm for HPC exascale computing, and the developed technology will also address next-generation storage mechanisms required by the Big Data market.”

“We have developed an active programme of industry engagement, typically consulting in niche areas and helping those partners exploit advanced computing within their organisations. This may be improving fraud detection algorithms, large-scale data management, tailored training courses or oil & gas related work. In fact it is very rarely about computer time! We also work with public sector bodies to support computing centric projects by the state and provide so-called platform technology support for research communities that need more than just raw cycles.”

It’s Time for MPI Over Everything (MPIoE)

Over at Google Plus, Jeff Squyres has posted a somewhat belated April 1 post announcing an exciting new technology called the MPI over Everything Project (MPIoE). “One key innovative technology developed as part of the MPIoE effort is the Far Reaching Internet Datagram Efficiency (FRIDGE) framing protocol.”

Lustre Plus ZFS at LLNL: Production Plans and Best Practices

llnl

“LLNL’s largest supercomputer is paired with a 55-petabyte file system, known as Grove, that stores vast quantities of simulation data. Grove must transfer information to and from Sequoia at a minimum of 500 gigabytes per second. To support Grove’s high storage capacity and bandwidth requirements, LC software developers have engaged in a multi-year project to replace much of Grove’s Lustre foundation with ZFS. “
