Supercomputer Systems Monitoring and Management

The SGI Management Suite’s system health monitoring and management capability collects health status information on fundamental system’s functions such as memory, CPU and power. It identifies changes that require action, automatically alerts the system administrator, and provides proactive solutions to correct the problem.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise Rolls Out Software Defined HPC Platform

Today, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) introduced new high-performance computing solutions that aim to accelerate HPC adoption by enabling faster time-to-value and increased competitive differentiation through better parallel processing performance, reduced complexity and deployment time. These innovations include: HPE Core HPC Software Stack with HPE Insight Cluster Management Utility v8.0: Designed to meet the needs of […]

Univa Grid Engine Supports New Intel Xeon Phi Processor

Today Univa announced the release of Univa Grid Engine Version 8.4.0 with preview support for the Intel Xeon Phi processor (formerly code-named “Knights Landing”), enabling enterprises to launch and control jobs on Intel Xeon Phi processor-based systems. The update simplifies running and managing applications on Intel Xeon Phi processor-based clusters.

Efforts to Broaden HPC Accelerate as OpenHPC Governing Board and Technical Steering Committee Takes Shape

Since its announcement at SC15 in November, the OpenHPC community has made important strides toward its mission of creating and supporting a flexible open source HPC software stack that simplifies deploying and managing HPC systems. In just a few short months, the open source community hosted at The Linux Foundation has had many productive working group discussions, installed a Technical Steering Committee (TSC) and Governing Board, and even provided releases of the initial software stack based on early community feedback. The initial software stack includes over 60 packages, including tools and libraries, as well as provisioning, a job scheduler and more.

How to Control Your Supercomputing Programs

Pressures by management for cost containment are answered by improving software maintenance procedures and automating many of the repetitive activities that have been handled manually. This lowers Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), boosting IT productivity, and increasing return on investment (ROI).

Supercomputing Genetic Medicine in Africa

The National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is helping change the way genetic medicine is researched and practiced in Africa. Members of the Blue Waters team recently made it possible to discover genomic variants in over 300 deeply sequenced human samples to help construct a genotyping chip specific for […]

Host an HPC Workflow Workshop at your Site in August

The NCSA Blue Waters project is offering a Workflows Workshop virtual course in August. To share this class with as many students as possible, they are seeking universities willing to be a local site and offer the course to their students.

Bright Computing to Showcase System Management Software at ISC 2016

Bright Computing’s recently appointed Silicon Valley-based management team, including CEO Bill Wagner and SVP Worldwide Sales Dan Kuczkowski, will be at the Bright booth, as well as Bright’s leading technical experts, giving booth visitors the opportunity to hear about Bright’s corporate strategy, the company’s latest product developments, and gain insight into the Bright roadmap.

insideHPC Guide to Production Supercomputing

While HPC has its roots in academia and government where extreme performance was the primary goal, high performance computing has evolved to serve the needs of businesses with sophisticated monitoring, pre-emptive memory error detection, and workload management capabilities. This evolution has enabled “production supercomputing,” where resilience can be sustained without sacrificing performance and job throughput.

Bright Computing Partners with ProfitBricks for Elastic HPC

Today Bright Computing announced a partnership with ProfitBricks, the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) company based in Germany. “Cloud-based solutions are increasingly appealing as they offer a cost-effective alternative to traditional on-premise solutions,” said Petra-Maria Grohs, CSO EMEAA at ProfitBricks. “Infrastructure is no exception and we are excited at the level of interest we are seeing in moving HPC and Big Data environments into the cloud, in order to unlock cost and time savings.”
