Silicon Mechanics: HPC Built for You at SC16

In this video from SC16, Silicon Mechanics CTO Daniel Chow describes how the company brings value and performance to its HPC customers. “When looking for a leading solutions integrator to couple disparate hardware and software products into a “HPC Built For You” solution, that will keep up with the evolution and disruptive forces in technology – the Experts at Silicon Mechanics are here to help you.”

DDN Re-Energizes HPC Workflows at SC16

“At SC16, DDN demonstrated centralized storage implementations that accelerate financial and scientific analytics by 5x – extracting maximum efficiency, value and ROI in real-world customer environments using DDN products and solutions with open and commercial software including OpenStack and Hadoop. In addition to the demonstrations, DDN also highlighted its customer use cases with other open and commercial software such as Informatica, SAS GRID, R and Ab Initio, among others.”

Bernd Mohr on how #hpcconnects on the Road to SC17

In this special guest feature, SC17 General Chair Bernd Mohr write that the conference will focus on making connections. “We are very confident, that SC17 will once again be THE gathering of scientists, engineers, researchers, educators, programmers, system administrators and developers that is unequaled in the world—for an exceptional program of technical presentations, papers, workshops, informative tutorials, timely research posters and Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF) sessions, all connected by a world-class exhibition.”

Asetek Lands Nine Installations on the Green500

“As seen at installations included on both the Green500 and Top500 lists, Asetek’s distributed liquid cooling architecture enables cluster energy efficiency in addition to sustained and un-throttled cluster performance,” said John Hamill, Vice President of WW Sales and Marketing. “Around the world, data centers are increasingly using Asetek technology for High Performance Computing while reducing energy costs.”

SGI Paves the Way to the Future with HPE at SC16

In this video from SC16, Gabriel Broner from SGI describes the company’s full breadth of HPC solutions. Recently acquired by Hewlett Packard Enterprise, SGI’s product technologies such as the SGI ICE XA system and SGI UV big memory systems will continue to offer unique value for HPC customers on the road to Exascale. “Will this be a good marriage? Well, this reporter got to spend some time with HPE, SGI, and their joint customers at the recent HP-CAST user group meeting, and all indications are that this combination will be a powerful force in HPC moving forward.”

SGI and DDN Power UK Met Office SPICE System for Weather and Climate Research

SGI, Bright Computing, and DDN recently announced that the UK Met Office has selected the three HPC vendors to provide HPC for its new Scientific Processing and Intensive Compute Environment (SPICE) system. SPICE will enable weather and climate researchers to dramatically reduce time required to analyze massive amounts of climate simulation data.

For HPC, Red Hat Offers Much More than just Linux

“The HPC Community demands performance, transparency, and value—exactly what Red Hat and open source offer. Red Hat is the standard choice for Linux in HPC clusterers worldwide. But it doesn’t stop there–our cloud, virtualization, storage, platform and service-oriented solutions bring real freedom and collaboration to federal, state, local, and academic programs. And Red Hat’s worldwide support, training and consulting services bring the power of open source to your agency. We are a part of a larger community working together to drive innovation.”

Simplify Cluster Deployment with Intel HPC Orchestrator

“Intel HPC Orchestrator simplifies the installation, management, and ongoing maintenance of an HPC system by reducing the amounft of integration and validation effort required to run an HPC system software stack. With Intel HPC Orchestrator, based on the OpenHPC system software stack, you can take advantage of the innovation driven by the open source community – while also getting peace of mind from Intel® support across the HPC system software stack.”
