In this episode of This Week in HPC, Michael Feldman and Addison Snell from Intersect360 Research look at the Secure Data Appliance from Xyratex. After that, the Dynamic Duo discusses the highlights of their new HPC Budget Map Report.
“Named after the astronomical open star cluster of the same name, Pleiades, one of the world’s most powerful supercomputers, represents NASA’s state-of-the-art technology for meeting the agency’s supercomputing requirements, enabling NASA scientists and engineers to conduct modeling and simulation for NASA missions.”
NSF is seeking proposals that would explore new norms and practices in the research community for software and data citation and attribution.
Software is still a major roadblock for high-performance computing (HPC), and many workload management packages are limited in flexibility. Open source workload management tools, while promising due to their availability and lack of commercial pricing, bring their own challenges and contain unforeseen costs related to training and support. PBS Works, Altair’s suite of on-demand resource management technologies, offers a proven alternative to open source tools that addresses HPC software pain points without burdening the user with hidden costs.
