In this video from SC14, Ian Lumb from Bright Computing presents: Converged solutions for HPC and Big Data Analytics using Clusters and Clouds.
“December was the hottest month for combined land and ocean temperature. NASA scientists independently analyzed the data and reached the same conclusions. Today’s news comes on the heels of a damning report published yesterday in the journal Science which found that humans may be causing irreversible damage to our oceans and the animals living in it.”
“Henry wants to codify rules that span all competitions in order to provide a level playing field and to satisfy his authoritarian nature. Dan isn’t so sure that would work, given that each of the sponsoring organizations have their own ideas about how to best run a competition.

One of the first steps along this road, the guys agree, is to add a storage component to the competitions.”
“HPC is transforming our everyday lives, as well as our not-so-ordinary ones. From nanomaterials to jet aircrafts, from medical treatments to disaster preparedness, and even the way we wash our clothes; the HPC community has transformed the world in multifaceted ways. For its 27th anniversary, the annual SC Conference will return to Austin, TX, a city that continues to develop new ways of engaging our senses and incubating technology of all types, including supercomputing.”
