Everything from life sciences to the financial industry are relying on HPC clusters to perform complex and critical operations. Moving forward, there will be a lot more reliance on various HPC systems. So the all-important question comes in – How do you select, deploy and manage it all? Fortunately, IBM, Intel and NCAR have teamed up to explain their view on best practices selecting an HPC cluster using the process behind building the NCAR Wyoming Supercomputing Center.
“One of the hottest topics we see is remote visualization for post-processing simulation results. One big issue in traditional workflows in technical and scientific computing is the transfer of large amounts of data from where these have been created to where they are analyzed. Streamlining this workflow by processing where the data have been created in the first place is tantamount to shorten the wall-clock time it takes end users to get final results. At the same time, hardware utilization is greatly enhanced by using innovative technology for remote 3D visualization. For this, we have long since entered into a strategic partnership with NICE.”
Although many initially thought that liquid and servers should probably never mix – what if the server cooling is done in a completely controlled and secured environment? Liquid submersion cooling has the potential to revolutionize the design, construction, and energy consumption of data centers around the world.
Today Mellanox announced that its dual port ConnectX-3 10/40GbE Network Interface Cards are now fully compatible with qualified Dell PowerEdge servers.
In this video from ISC’13, Geoff Lyons from CoolIT Systems decribes the company’s liquid cooling technology for the enterprise and HPC.
