Based on the latest survey data, Michael Feldman of Intersect360 Research will discuss the top trends of that emerged in 2013, with a look ahead to how the market will continue to evolve in the year ahead. Topics will include HPC in the Cloud, Big Data, evolutions in processor architectures, and the race to Exascale.
“For NVLink to have its highest value it must function properly with unified memory. That means that the Memory Management Units in the CPUs have to be aware of NVLink DMA operations and update appropriate VM structures. The operating system needs to know when memory pages have been altered via NVLink DMA – and this can’t be solely the responsibility of the drivers. Tool developers also need to know details so that MPI or other communications protocols can make use of the new interconnect.”

“One of the hottest topics we see is remote visualization for post-processing simulation results. One big issue in traditional workflows in technical and scientific computing is the transfer of large amounts of data from where these have been created to where they are analyzed. Streamlining this workflow by processing where the data have been created in the first place is tantamount to shorten the wall-clock time it takes end users to get final results. At the same time, hardware utilization is greatly enhanced by using innovative technology for remote 3D visualization. For this, we have long since entered into a strategic partnership with NICE.”
