Interview: Why Software Defined Infrastructure Makes Sense for HPC

Jay Muelhoefer, IBM

“I came to IBM via the acquisition of Platform Computing. There’s also been other IBM assets around HPC, namely GPFS. What’s been the evolution of those items as well and how they really come together under this concept of software-defined infrastructure, and how we’re now taking these capabilities and expanding them into other initiatives that have sort of bled into the HPC space.”

IBM Data Infrastructure for Exascale Computing

fadden

Scott Fadden from IBM presented this talk at the Stanford HPC Conference. “What does it mean to provide data to an Exascale system? Many believe that the current model of adding more disks and installing faster networks won’t get us there. So how do you get the right data to the right processor at the right time? How dow begin to leverage new storage technologies? This presentation explores some the Exascale challenges and provides insight on what is being done today to learn about and prepare for managing data in an Exascale system.”
