The high performance networking interconnect landscape is in transition. InfiniBand and Intel Omni-Path will compete for the performance crown, while Ethernet will remain the ubiquitous standard for commercially oriented systems.
Object stores represent a simpler, more scalable solution and one that is easily accessed over standard web-based protocols. To learn more about Object Stores download this guide.
For this report, DDN performed a number of experimental benchmarks to attain optimal IO rates for Paradigm Echos application workloads. It present results from IO intensive Echos micro-benchmarks to illustrate the DDN GRIDScaler performance benefits and provide some detail to aid optimal job packing in 40G Ethernet clusters. To find out the results download this guide.
A parallel file system offers several advantages over a single direct attached file system. By using fast, scalable, external disk systems with massively parallel access to data, researchers can perform analysis against much larger datasets than they can by batching large datasets through memory.

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. To learn more about In-Memory computing download this guide from IHPC and SGI.
The insideHPC Guide to Personalized Medicine and Genomics explains how genomics will accelerate personalized medicine including several case studies.
