Slidecast: Five Essential Strategies for Successful HPC Clusters


“A successful HPC cluster requires administrators to provision, manage, and monitor an array of hardware and software components. Currently, there are many trends in HPC clustering that include software complexity, cluster growth and scalability, system heterogeneity, Cloud computing, as well as the introduction of Hadoop services. Without a cogent strategy to address these issues, system managers and administrators can expect less-than-ideal performance and utilization. There are many component tools and best practices to be found throughout the industry.”

Interview: Altair Joins Forces with Intel to Deliver Hyper-Fast CAE


Altair has teamed up with Intel to take on this challenge and provide a suite of solutions for CAE in HPC. “For many companies it is simply too hard and/or costly to get started with HPC in the first place. Altair addresses this through an easy to use web interface that is application aware (Compute Manager).”

How to Manage HPC Cluster Software Complexity

HPC Clusters Sm

HPC systems rely on large amounts of complex software, much of which is freely available. There is an assumption that because the software is “freely available,” there are no associated costs. This is a dangerous assumption. There are real configuration, administration, and maintenance costs associated with any type of software (open or closed).

Understanding Data Centers by Overlaying Multiple Information Layers


“Today’s data center managers are burdened by a lack of aligned information of multiple layers. Work-flow events like ‘job starts’ aligned with performance metrics and events extracted from log facilities are low-hanging fruit that is on the edge to become use-able due to open-source software like Graphite, StatsD, logstash and alike. This talk aims to show off the benefits of merging multiple layers of information within an InfiniBand cluster by using use-cases for level 1/2/3 personnel.”
