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.”
Dell has teamed with Intel to create innovative solutions that can accelerate the research, diagnosis and treatment of diseases through personalized medicine. The combination of leading-edge CPUs from Intel and the systems and storage expertise from Dell create a state-of-the-art solution that is easy to install, manage and expand as required.
“An increasing number of GPU enabled applications are available to the HPC community. The key issues are understanding the enhanced application performance and corresponding increase in power consumption due to GPUs. In most cases these depend on the CPU to GPU ratio and the way GPUs and connected to CPUs. Latest compute node designs allow flexibility to select the number of GPUs and how they are connected CPUs. This offers users a unique opportunity to select the a suitable operating point according to their application characteristics. This talk is about studying the performance vs. power tradeoff on a few common HPC applications.”
