While large scale supercomputing centers continue to push the boundaries of the ability to process numerical information, either HPC like or Big Data like, a concern is the ability for the datacenter to power and cool such large installations. The new Cray XC Supercomputer is an energy efficient advancement to the traditional cluster.
Daniel Gutierrez, Managing Editor, of insideBIGDATA has put together a terrific Guide to Scientific Research. The goal of this paper is to provide a road map for scientific researchers wishing to capitalize on the rapid growth of big data technology for collecting, transforming, analyzing, and visualizing large scientific data sets.
As design challenges become more complex and time to product launches are reduced, it is important to understand how to use a cluster for simulation, as compared to just a single node. “HPC Clusters Drive Design Optimization” is an excellent introduction on how to get the most out of a compute cluster.
Dell has teamed with Intel to create innovative solutions that can accelerate the research, diagnosis and treatment of diseases through personalized medicine. The combination of leading-edge CPUs from Intel and the systems and storage expertise from Dell create a state-of-the-art solution that is easy to install, manage and expand as required.
Although there are a number of truly huge implementations of Lustre today, the community is still far from reaching the maximum configurations that the Lustre architecture is designed for. Inside the Lustre File System describes the basics of how the Lustre File System operates with descriptions of the newest features.
