This Time Lapse video features sights and sounds from LUG 2014 in Miami.
“During the MoabCon conference, we learned about the use of HPC and Moab in fields as diverse as satellite imagery processing and agriculture. Another live demo of Moab Task Manager was given showing the completing of 500,000 small tasks on 20 nodes in around 45 seconds. Several sessions were dedicated to outlining the exciting performance improvements that will be coming in the next releases of Moab and TORQUE.”
In this episode of This Week in HPC, Michael Feldman and Addison Snell from Intersect360 Research discuss high frequency trading and the High Performance on Wall Street Conference. After that, they look at a Fujitsu’s Petascale upgrade at the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency. The novel architecture for this Sparc-powered FX10 follow-on system will feature Micron’s Hybrid Memory Cube technology.
“The current time-horizon of HPC is not much more than five to ten years, with Exascale as the goal. But can we ensure that supercomputing embeds itself so deeply into the productive economy as to be indispensable a century from now? And will it be regarded as a thing of beauty, rather than just a technical artifact? And is Exascale the only destination?”
In this video from LUG 2014, Roger Ronald from System Fabric Works presents: Integrating Array Management into Lustre. “Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre Plug-ins address a significant adoption barrier by improving ease of use. Now, System Fabric Works has implemented a NetApp plug-in for Intel EE Lustre and additional plug-ins for storage, networks, and servers are being encouraged.”
In this video from LUG 2014, Brent Gorda from the Intel High Performance Data Division provides an update on the Whamcloud team has been up to over the past two years as part of Intel. He then shares his views on the news that Seagate has donated Lustre.org back to the community. Finally he wraps up with an assessment of the State of Lustre and it’s progress in the enterprise.
