In this video from the University of Houston CACDS HPC Workshop, Fernanda Foertter from ORNL presents: Leveraging Leadership Computing Facilities: Assisting User’s Transition to Titan’s Accelerated Architecture.
The Seagate ClusterStor Secure Data Appliance (SDA) is the HPC industry’s first scale-out secure storage system officially ICD-503 certified to consolidate multiple previously isolated systems, maintain data security, enforce security access controls, segregate data at different security levels, and provide audit trails, all in a single scale-out file system with proven linear performance and storage scalability.
CHPC Communications Manager Noxolo Moyake describes how the South African Center for High Performance Computing is fostering the use of supercomputing in the region. “CHPC will be a critical resource for tackling the big scientific challenges of the continent, such as the Square Kilometer Array (SKA), climate research, and data-intensive applications in the big data regime.”
“Over the last five years HPC performance growth has been slowing measurably, and in this presentation several reasons for this slowdown will be analyzed. To reach usable exascale performance over the next decade, some fundamental changes will have to occur in HPC systems architecture. In particular, a transition from a compute centric to a data movement centric point of view needs to be considered. Alternatives including quantum and neuromorphic computing have also been considered. The prospects of these technologies for post-Moore’s Law supercomputing will be explored.”
As you’ve increasingly seen in news headlines, secure access to shared data is not only an issue for Federal and local government agencies and the Intelligence Community – it has also become an issue for business enterprises needing to protect their intellectual property and other sensitive business data while engaging on a global scale with their partners and contractors.
