Exascale: A race to the future of HPC

As exponential data growth reshapes the industry, engineering, and scientific discovery, success has come to depend on the ability to analyze and extract insight from incredibly large data sets. Exascale computing will allow us to process data, run systems, and solve problems at a totally new scale and this will become vitally important as problems grow ever larger, ever more difficult. Our unmatched ability to bring new technology to the mainstream will provide systems that are markedly more affordable, usable, and efficient at handling growing workloads.

The insideHPC Guide to Flexible HPC

Organizations that implement high-performance computing (HPC) technologies have a wide range of requirements. From small manufacturing suppliers to national research institutions, using significant computing technologies is critical to creating innovative products and leading-edge research. No two HPC installations are the same. For maximum return, budget, software requirements, performance and customization all must be considered before installing and operating a successful environment.

Many-Task Computing for Grids

Many-task computing aims to bridge the gap between two computing paradigms, high throughput computing and high performance computing.

Drop Testing with Dell, Intel and Altair

Impact analysis or drop testing is one of the most important stages of product design and development, and software that can simulate this testing accurately yields dramatic cost and time-to-market benefits for manufacturers. Dell, Intel and Altair have collaborated to analyze a virtual drop test solution with integrated simulation and optimization analysis, delivering proven gains in speed and accuracy. With this solution, engineers can explore more design alternatives

Dell HPC NFS Storage Solution

This white paper describes the Dell NFS Storage Solution – High Availability configurations (NSS6.0-HA) with Dell PowerEdge 13th generation servers. It presents a comparison among all available NSS-HA offerings so far, and provides performance results for a configuration with a storage system providing 480TB of raw capacity.

Lustre Dell Storage for HPC with Intel

GPU computing with The Dell PowerEdge C4130

This white paper describes the system architecture and performance characterization of the PowerEdge C4130. The C4130 offers a highly configurable system design and ultra-high accelerator/coprocessor density. The combination of these factors have resulted in substantial performance improvement in for a number of industry standard HPC benchmarks and applications.

GPU Clusters for High-Performance Computing

Large-scale GPU clusters are gaining popularity in the scientific computing community. However, their deployment and production use are associated with a number of new challenges. In this paper, we present our efforts to address some of the challenges with building and running GPU clusters in HPC environments. We touch upon such issues as balanced cluster […]

Remote 3D Visualisation VDI Technologies

This paper will look at how remote 3D virtual desktop technology can be applied in two usage modes within the scientific and technical computing arena . First, as an HPC remote visualisation platform deployed to provide real time graphical access to large scale data sets stored within the HPC data center . Second, to provide a full 3D capable virtual workstation solution as a replacement of traditional fixed under-desk workstation solutions .

Cloud Guide for HPC Computing

This white paper presents an evolutionary approach to cloud computing within a high-performance computing (HPC) context. The paper addresses the seamless and incremental process of moving from private/internal to public/external clouds, the realistic use cases, and the qualities needed in a vendor to get you there. This paper also compares several public cloud offerings and profiles a vendor who is enabling a range of cloud solutions for leading Fortune 500 companies.
