To achieve high performance, modern computer systems rely on two basic methodologies to scale resources. A scale-up design that allows multiple cores to share a large global pool of memory and a scale-out design design that distributes data sets across the memory on separate host systems in a computing cluster.

With the deluge of new data from new sources, it isn’t surprising to find that data centers are running short on compute capacity. In this research report, we explore the world of accelerators, primarily FPGAs, to see if they’re the right answer to fill
the ‘compute gap’.
This executive briefing is a preliminary report of a larger study on demand-side barriers and drivers of cloud computing adoption for HPC. A more comprehensive report and analysis will be published later in 2016. From June to August 2016, the CloudLightning project surveyed over 170 HPC discrete end users worldwide in the academic, commercial and government sectors on their HPC use, perceived drivers and barriers to using cloud computing, and uses of cloud computing for HPC.
Using commodity hardware and the “plug-and-play” NumaConnect interconnect, Numascale delivers true shared memory programming and simpler administration at standard HPC cluster price points. Download this white paper to learn more.
As global energy costs climb, Cray has taken its long-standing expertise in optimizing power and cooling and focused it on developing overall system energy efficiency. The resulting Cray XC supercomputer series integrates into modern datacenters and achieves high levels of efficiency while minimizing system and infrastructure costs.

When the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) was created at the University of Illinois 27 years ago, it had a unique proposition—its computing, data and networking resources were designed for industry as well as academia. Over the years, NCSA’s efforts to serve industry have grown and matured. Download this white paper to learn more
The Central Processing Unit (CPU) has been at the heart of High Performance Computing (HPC) for decades. However, in recent years, advances in parallel processing technology mean the landscape has changed dramatically. To learn more download this white paper.
Floor space usage in the data center is an important, though often misunderstood aspect of liquid submersion cooling. While it is true that horizontal liquid submersion cooling racks require more floor space per unit than vertical air cooling racks, space utilization becomes comparable between the two when considering that liquid submersion cooling racks can support higher power densities per rack and require very little accompanying infrastructure on the data center floor.
