Video: Datacenter Computers – Modern Challenges in CPU Design

Dick Sites, Senior Staff Engineer at Google

“Computers used as datacenter servers have usage patterns that differ substantially from those of desktop or laptop computers. We discuss four key differences in usage and their first-order implications for designing computers that are particularly well-suited as servers: data movement, thousands of transactions per second, program isolation, and measurement underpinnings. Maintaining high-bandwidth data movement requires coordinated design decisions throughout the memory system, instruction-issue system, and even instruction set.”

In this video, Vadim Karpusenko from Colfax International describes the software tools for developing applications for Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors. The session begins with software that is necessary to boot coprocessors and to run pre-compiled executables on them.

Video: CloudBroker – Bringing HPC to the Cloud

HPC Cloud

“Cloud computing provides pay-per-use access to scalable compute resources. However, IaaS and HPC-on-demand offerings are still often complex. Instead, the CloudBroker Platform and AppCenter create a SaaS layer on top of the compute resources. In the CloudSME EU project, this is used to develop a simulation platform for manufacturing and engineering.”

Reproducibility of CAE-computations through Immutable Application Containers

Christian Kniep

Ensuring a reproducible result of HPC workloads no matter the platform used is key to settle the battle between operations (update fast, due to compliance / security) and end- user (never touch a running system). By pushing his docker related HPC research further, Christian is showcasing his results on Immutable Application Containers.
