Video: Towards Inevitable Convergence of HPC and Big Data

Dr. Satoshi Matsuoka, University of Tokyo

Satoshi Matsuoka from the Tokyo Institute of Technology discusses Big Data at the NCSA Blue Waters Symposium. “The trend towards convergence is not only strategic however but rather inevitable as the Moore’s law ends such that sustained growth in data capabilities, not compute, will advance the capacity and thus the overall capacities towards accelerating research and ultimately the industry.”

Podcast: Satoshi Matsuoka on the Convergence of HPC and Big Data

Dr. Satoshi Matsuoka, University of Tokyo

“Rapid growth in the use cases and demands for extreme computing and huge data processing is leading to convergence of the two infrastructures. The trend towards convergence is not only strategic however but rather inevitable as the Moore’s law ends such that sustained growth in data capabilities, not compute, will advance the capacity and thus the overall capacities towards accelerating research and ultimately the industry.”

Video: Monitoring a Heterogeneous Lustre Environment with Splunk

lug

“Monitoring a large Lustre site, running multiple generations of Lustre filesystems can be a challenge. Some equipment offer vendor specific monitoring interfaces while others, built on open source Lustre, have minimal monitoring capabilities. This talk will report on our operational experience using a homegrown python module to collect data from each filesystem. We will discuss in detail how the data is visualized centrally in Splunk and cross-referenced with users workload to analyze and troubleshoot our environment.”

Deploying Hadoop on Lustre Storage: Lessons Learned and Best Practices

Hadoop Cluster

In this video from LUG 2015 in Denver, J.Mario Gallegos from Dell presents: Deploying Hadoop on Lustre Storage: Lessons Learned and Best Practices. “Merging of strengths of both technologies to solve big data problems permits harvesting the power of HPC clusters on very fast storage.”
