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.”

Huawei Showcases HPC Solutions at SC16

“Huawei has increasingly become more prominent in the HPC market. It has successfully deployed HPC clusters for a large number of global vehicle producers, large-scale supercomputing centers, and research institutions. These show that Huawei’s HPC platforms are optimized for industry applications which can help customers significantly simplify service processes and improve work efficiency, enabling them to focus on product development and research.”

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.”

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.”

Nvidia’s Bill Dally to Keynote HiPINEB 2017 Exascale Workshop

Nvidia’s Bill Dally will keynote HiPINEB 2017 – the 3rd IEEE International Workshop on High-Performance Interconnection Networks in the Exascale and Big-Data Era. The event takes place Feb. 5, 2017 in Austin, Texas and will be held in conjunction with the IEEE HPCA Conference.

CoolIT Systems and STULZ Debut High Density Chip-to-Atmosphere Data Center Liquid Cooling

In this video, CoolIT Systems CEO & CTO, Geoff Lyon, and STULZ ATS President, Joerg Desler, discuss high density Chip-to-Atmosphere™ data center liquid cooling solutions for organizations big or small. When integrated, CoolIT Systems’ DCLC™ solutions can capture 85% and more of the servers’ heat directly into liquid. Complimenting DCLC™, STULZ precision air cooling products capture the balance of the lower density heat. A considerable benefit forms when the total heat energy from both systems is consolidated, transported outside and then dissipated or recaptured for reuse, to heat nearby buildings, for example.
