Marc Hamilton Looks at China HPC

“Like the US, Japan, and Europe, China still has plans to build giant HPC systems like Tianhe. However, increasingly these systems are being looked at to support commercial HPC workloads like machine vision in a cloud environment in addition to just scientific data processing.”

The Scary Side of AI and Big Data

Ralph H. Castain from Intel presented this talk at the Adaptive Computing booth at SC13. “The solution allows customers to leverage both their HPC and big data investments in a single platform, as opposed to operating them in siloed environments. The convergence between big data and HPC environments will only grow stronger as organizations demand data processing models capable of extracting the results required to make data-driven decisions.”

How CRISP is Tackling the Data Deluge in International Science

“CRISP is helping to standardize data-access through a common identity system, or federated identity, allowing identities to transcend facilities or countries, and providing scientists with a single online identity or login to access all their data in one place – regardless of where it’s from.”

Slidecast: Introducing the Terascala Intelligent Storage Bridge

New innovations from Adaptive Computing include: Moab Task Manager, a localized decision-making tool within Moab’s HPC Suite that enables high-speed throughput on short computing jobs. Adaptive has also announced a partnership with Intel to integrate Moab/TORQUE workload management software with the Intel HPC Distribution for Apache Hadoop software, which combines the Intel Distribution for Apache Hadoop software with the Intel Enterprise Edition of Lustre software.

Panel Discussion: Solving the HPC Data Deluge

bigdatapanel

As science drives a rapidly growing need for storage, existing environments face increasing pressure to expand capabilities while controlling costs. Many researchers, scientists and engineers find that they are outgrowing their current system, but fear their organizations may be too small to cover the cost and support needed for more storage. Join these experts for a lively discussion on how you can take control and solve the HPC data deluge.

Creating a Better Infrastructure to Manage Big Data

Trev Harmon

Over the course of this talk, Trev Harmon looks back to the utility computing vision of Douglas Parkhill and proposes an application-centric workflow for the future that fulfills that vision across many disciplines of computing.

Micron Announces Automata Parallel Processing Architecture

Last week at SC13, Micron Technology announced a new computing architecture capable of performing high-speed, big data processing.
