In this video from the DDN User Group at SC15, Kevin Behn from the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology presents: End to End Infrastructure Design for Large Scale Genomics. “HudsonAlpha has generated major discoveries that impact disease diagnosis and treatment, created intellectual property, fostered biotechnology companies and expanded the number of biosciences-literate people, many of whom will take their place among the future life sciences workforce. Additionally, HudsonAlpha has created one of the world’s first end-to-end genomic medicine programs to diagnose rare disease. Genomic research, educational outreach, clinical genomics and economic development: each of these mission areas advances the quality of life.”
Dan Stanzione from TACC presented this talk at the DDN User Group at SC15. “TACC is an advanced computing research center that provides comprehensive advanced computing resources and support services to researchers in Texas and across the USA. The mission of TACC is to enable discoveries that advance science and society through the application of advanced computing technologies. Specializing in high performance computing, scientific visualization, data analysis & storage systems, software, research & development and portal interfaces, TACC deploys and operates advanced computational infrastructure to enable computational research activities of faculty, staff, and students of UT Austin.”
Dirk Pleiter from the Jülich Supercomputing Centre presented this talk at the DDN User Group at SC15. “IME unleashes a new I/O provisioning paradigm. This breakthrough, software defined storage application introduces a whole new new tier of transparent, extendable, non-volatile memory (NVM), that provides game-changing latency reduction and greater bandwidth and IOPS performance for the next generation of performance hungry scientific, analytic and big data applications – all while offering significantly greater economic and operational efficiency than today’s traditional disk-based and all flash array storage approaches that are currently used to scale performance.”
Today DDN announced plans to refresh their storage product portfolio at SC15 in Austin. “With massively scalable technology able to outpace the performance requirements and growth of Enterprise Big Data while enabling HPC users to achieve Exascale, DDN will introduce revolutionary products and demonstrate the staggering 3x to 10x performance increase real-world customers achieve when they migrate to DDN environments.”
DataDirect Networks will host its annual DDN User Group Meeting on Monday, Nov. 16 at SC15 in Austin, Texas.
“Cyfronet recently celebrated the launch of Poland’s fastest supercomputer. As the world’s largest deployment of the HP Apollo 8000 platform, the 1.68 Petaflop Prometheus system is powered by 41,472 Intel Haswell cores, 216 Terabytes of memory, and 10 Petabytes of storage.”
Daniel Ahlin from KTH (Sweden’s Royal Institute of Technology) presented this talk at the DDN User Group at ISC 2015. “The PDC Center for High Performance Computing at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology provides leading HPC services to Swedish academia as part of the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC) as well as internationally via the PRACE infrastructure.”
The DDN User Group meeting will take place July 14 at ISC 2014 in Frankfurt.
