Reliability, Scalability and Performance – the Impact of Intel HPC Orchestrator

When it comes to getting the performance out of your HPC system, it’s the small things that count. David Lombard, Sr. Principal Engineer at Intel Corporation, explains. ” Intel HPC Orchestrator encapsulates the important tradeoffs, and pays attention to the small details that can greatly impact how well the underlying features of the hardware are leveraged to deliver better performance and scalability.”

Drilling Down into Machine Learning and Deep Learning

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are rising in popularity as the needs of big data call for systems that exceed human capabilities. This article is part of a special insideHPC report that explores trends in machine learning and deep learning.

A Seat at the Table – The Value of Women in High-Performance Computing

It’s fair to say that women continue to be underrepresented in STEM, but the question is whether there is a systemic bias making it difficult for women to join and succeed in tech industries, or has the tech industry failed to motivate and persuade women to join? Intel’s Figen Ulgen shares her view.

Why the OS is So Important when Running HPC Applications

This is the fourth entry in an insideHPC series that explores the HPC transition to the cloud, and what your business needs to know about this evolution. This series, compiled in a complete Guide available, covers cloud computing for HPC, why the OS is important when running HPC applications, OpenStack fundamentals and more.

Why IMC is Right for Today’s Fast-Data and Big-Data Applications

Many more companies are turning to in-memory computing (IMC) as they struggle to analyze and process increasingly large amounts of data. That said, it’s often hard to make sense of the growing world of IMC products and solutions. A recent white paper from GridGain aims to help businesses decide which solution best matches their specific needs.

Genome Analytics Driving a Healthcare Revolution

Next-generation sequencing methods are empowering doctors and researchers to improve their ability to treat diseases, predict and prevent diseases before they occur, and personalize treatments to specific patient profiles. “With this increase in knowledge comes a tidal wave of data. Genomic data is growing so quickly that scientists are predicting that this data will soon take the lead as the largest data category in the world, eventually creating more digital information than astronomy, particle physics and even popular Internet sites like YouTube.”

Intel Omni-Path Architecture: What’s a Supercomputer App Want?

The Intel Omni-Path Architecture is the next-generation fabric for high-performance computing. In this feature, we will focus on what it takes for for supercomputer application to scale well by taking full advantage of processor features. “To keep these apps working at their peak means not letting them starve for the next bit or byte or calculated result—for whatever reason.”

Cloud Computing Continues to Influence HPC

Cloud technologies are influencing HPC just as it is the rest of enterprise IT. This is the second entry in an insideHPC series that explores the HPC transition to the cloud, and what your business needs to know about this evolution. This series, compiled in a complete Guide available, covers cloud computing for HPC, industry examples, IaaS components, OpenStack fundamentals and more.

Next-Generation Sequencing Improving Precision Medicine

Genomic sequencing has progressed so rapidly that researchers can now analyze the genetic profiles of healthy individuals to uncover mutations that will almost certainly lead to a genetic condition. These breakthroughs are demonstrating that the future of genomic medicine will focus not just on the ability to reactively treat diseases, but on predicting and preventing them before they occur.

Scalable Informatics Closes Down their Shop

We are sad to report that HPC vendor Scalable Informatics has gone out of business. Headed up by CEO Joe Landman, Scalable Informatics spent the last 12 years building ‘Simply Faster” software-defined storage and compute solutions to the financial, research, scientific, and big data analysis markets. “There are days when this reporter wishes he wasn’t in the news business. Today is one of those days.”
